Hey Verse City Guys,

(Check out the article below which highlights how new technology is changing the face of journalism.)

Students at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism are coming up with new and creative ways of  making a journalists job a lot easier by introducing new technological tools that will  not only save them time but money as well.

Some of these new gadgets include:  (1) sport story generators that write coverage all by itself,  (2) Microsoft plug-ins, which allow journalists to research/fact check stories at the same time and (3) iPhone applications that provide daily news in 10 minute increments.

Read more about what these students are working on at:  http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/journalism_students_computer_science_majors_better.php
