At Newsgeist Europe this past weekend, a few dozen journalists, executives, technologists, and media thinkers assembled once again to dish on the future of news. The mostly secret, mostly male, event played a significant part in the development of Google’s AMP last year. The latest event, held in Bilbao, Spain, generated some good conversation and observations from the small group of attendees. Here are a few of their tweets.

— On Saturday, Bastian Obermayer, one of the journalists behind the Panama Papers, took the stage to talk about the project and why collaboration was core to pulling it off.

— Other topics of conversation: analytics, monetization, “trust,” and of course, Snapchat.

Lisa Oberndorfer, a freelance business and tech reporter and publisher of German tech magazine Fillmore, wrote about what she learned during the event.

Here’s another collection of takeaways from Charlie Beckett, media professor at The London School of Economics and Political Science.

— Last, here’s a slide deck from a Newsgeist presentation by Esra Dogramaci, a digital consultant working with BBC, on social video and how publishers can do it right.
