What Do You Want To Talk About?
So we asked you to tell us what you want to talk about on October 22, and a few of you did. Here are a few ideas that really excite us, and the folks who shared:
- How does design create a narrative and now does narrative create design? And how do design and narrative affect how we design for the future? Andrew Devigal - NYTimes.com
- What are the legal/ethical issues in using social media storytelling? Ellyn Angelotti - Poynter Institute
- Social media makes stories not a single discrete object to be shared, but a living, ongoing process of story, response and revision. Mark Coatney - Tumblr
- OSF models for how we work with journalists and putting teams together for multimedia projects with targeted audiences for advocacy. Pam Chen - Open Society Foundation
- Challenges and wins around a responsive web design approach. Miranda Mulligan - Bostonglobe.com

"Right now, publishers are trying to transition to the mobile web in a number of ways…building traditional web sites, mobile sites and native APPs tied to a specific device for a specific operating system…..How do we keep up with the ever-growing number of mobile devices and capabilities of operating systems? How can we shift with the market and/or respond to the needs of our users faster? How can we get a handle on the sheer volume of work on our web devs and digital designers?"
- Miranda Mulligan, Digital Design Director - BostonGlobe.com
Miranda just unveiled the new, responsively designed BostonGlobe.com. Join her at DUXcamp and together we’ll explore other new ways to report, design, and tell our stories!
Charles Darwin did this, slowly and painfully, and so can you.
Every day we walk through the world. We look around. We think we see what’s going on, but it is hard to remember how routinized we are as we look, how we automatically see things from our accustomed angle, never thinking of alternate possibilities.
I mean, who goes to Mount Rushmore and thinks about this? - Robert Krulwich, Radiolab
Come hear what Robert has to say about the creative process; how it works when things go right, and how it can get even better when things go wrong. See you at DUXcamp!
DUXcamp sponsorship opportunities
As DUXcamp nears, many of our partners and attendees have inquired about sponsorship opportunities. Yes! Of course, we would love to hear from you. DUXcamp has been a tremendous undertaking and, though the event is free to all attendees, we’re hoping to cover some of our costs related to the hotel, receptions, and materials.
With DUXcamp in its first year, this is a great opportunity for our partners and longtime friends to show their support while providing unparalleled visibility for their organization, as well as their products and services.
For more information on DUXcamp sponsorship opportunities, please contact Chris Howie at 202.513.3992 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
