TEDxAsheville - Amie Tracey - The future of community journalism

Amie is the Lead Designer at Ponderwell, an Asheville-based software and web development company. Her passion for community journalism began five years ago with writing news analysis for Newsvine.com, an early collaborative journalism website. Over the years she has written hundreds of articles on topics ranging from politics to the dynamics of online communities. In 2008 she met Martin Haywood (a computer programmer and fellow community journalism enthusiast from Australia), and together with her husband Michael Tracey (programmer and founder of the collaborative community photojournalism site ImageAsheville.com) they founded Ponderwell around the concept that their technology skills and experience could one day solve many of the issues plaguing community journalism. Recently, their ideas were the most highly rated proposal for the Community Media Development Initiative for the Asheville area, and they continue to pursue their dream at http://ponderwell.com/. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
