Collaboration and insights: Here’s what you missed at two useful journalism conferences last week

“Attitudes about newsroom collaboration are improving but it can feel like an uphill push sometimes.”

Two powerhouse gatherings in the journalism world happened at the end of last week, digging into topics from collaborative journalism to reader revenue.

The ONA Insights event in Toronto featured keynotes on Vox Media’s editorial voice and blockchain in journalism with dives into newsletters, analytics, growth in international audience, and more. Over in New Jersey, the Center for Cooperative Media’s collaborators met to brainstorm about working together in journalism at the Collaborative Journalism Summit.

What were the top #learnings from these events? We’ve rounded them up for you here!
