Rebele Symposium 2023:
Covering Tech: Finding the Signal in the Noise
How technology is impacting the way we live is a paramount story of our time. This year’s Rebele Symposium, which took place February 7, 2023, explored how some of the nation’s top tech journalists determine and tell the crucial Silicon Valley stories amid increased scrutiny of how innovations (and their innovators) impact our world for better and for worse. Panelists were Lauren Goode, senior writer at Wired, Christina Passariello, Technology Editor, Washington Post, and Zoe Schiffer, managing editor, Platformer. Janine Zacharia, the Carlos Kelly McClatchy Lecturer in the Department of Communication, moderated.
Rebele Symposium 2022:
The Facebook Files
The world's largest social network employs a team of researchers to study the consequences of its decisions, but much of that knowledge was kept secret -- until the Wall Street Journal obtained a trove of company documents which have become known as "The Facebook Files."
Panelists: Georgia Wells of the Wall Street Journal, Will Oremus of the Washington Post, and Communication Professor Jeff Hancock. Moderated by Stanford Lecturer R.B. Brenner, a former Washington Post editor.
