Glocal News13 starts Thursday 14 November 2013: check it out, courtesy of ScribbleLive

Thursday 14 November 2013 is a red-letter day in Varese, Italy, as the second annual Glocal News Festival (#Glocal13) takes the stage. Focusing on digital, local, and global journalism and, indeed, masterminded by VareseNews, Italy’s first online-only national news-site, the Glocal News Festival is a four-day exploration into what is being done now — and what the future might hold for news media and those who produce them. Innovative use of technology is the order of the day. The GlocalNews live blog is powered by ScribbleLive, a Toronto-based outfit, whose mission is to  provide “flexible and feature-rich platform that allows media companies and brands to create, publish and syndicate content in real time.”

And here is ScribbleLive in action: join us in Varese, from Thursday 14 to Sunday 17 November 2013, here.
