If you couldn’t make it to San Francisco for the 2012 Online News Association Conference and Awards Banquet, we’re bringing the conference to you, thanks to a ton of great media generated over the three days. We’ve pulled together a mega-post including links to presentation slides, videos, illustrations and more.
Session slides: We’ve gathered available slides and links to wrap-ups and resource pages from presenters and posted to each session page on the ONA12 site.
Session videos: Unedited videos of all of the keynotes, most of the Friday and Saturday general sessions (in four tracks) and the Online Journalism Awards dinner are available on each session page. We’re in post-production now and will be posting high-quality videos on our Vimeo account, so follow @ONA on Twitter for updates.
Session audio: Sound recordings of all of the keynotes, the all-day Law School for Digital Journalists on Thursday and selected sessions are available on ONA’s Soundcloud page.
Livenotes: Some participants chose to compile their notes in collaborative documents, including Reuter’s Anthony De Rosa, Newsweek’s Brian Ries and USC Annenberg’s Robert Hernandez.
All ONA live blogs, posted by an excellent volunteer curation team, are on session pages (along with session videos).
Keynotes: Jose Antonio Vargas opened ONA12 with a request to media organizations — specifically noting the New York Times and Associated Press —to discontinue the use of the word “illegal immigrant.” Politico, ABC, and Poynter covered the speech, and the New York Times Public Editor, Margaret Sullivan, responded. Twitter CEO Dick Costolo made headlines when he announced during his keynote that Twitter users will be able to download their tweets by the end of the year. Reuters, TechCrunch, and GigaOm were just a few that filed stories. NASA’s JPL social team impressed social media editors and journalists alike during their Friday night keynote with their engagement strategy for the Mars Curiosity rover.Learn more
