Newsopalypse: Can Digital Really Sustain Media?
Friday, March 11
2:00PM - 3:00PM
701 E 11th St

Are there business models to support a “Fourth Estate?” Crowdfunding? Philanthropy? Micropayments? How can the media of the future make enough digital dimes to sustain their institutional role as democracy’s watchman?
