Google to co-host news conference on investigative journalism

Google is partnering with the Center for Investigative Reporting and Public Insight Network to host TechRaking 2012, a conference that will explore the relationship between technology and public-interest journalism. The event will be held April 12, at Google’s Mountain View campus.

Robert Rosenthal, the Center for Investigative Reporting’s executive director,  told the Atlantic that he hopes the event “will explore the question of impact — a paramount concern in a field that relies on public buy-in to achieve its ends — within the context of technology. How, basically, can technology aid the cause of investigative reporting? And what might technology, on the other hand, learn from the principles and practices of public-interest journalism?”
