Quotable quotes from Perugia’s International Journalism Festival

Over 1500 journalists gathered in the regional Italian city of Perugia last week to celebrate – yes, celebrate – journalism in industry times most frequently cast as gloomy.

I was one of 530 speakers from approximately 30 countries at the eighth International Journalism Festival, where I talked about the intersection of journalism and social media on a panel with journalists from the New York TimesWall Street Journal and Deutsche Welle.

With my World Editors Forum colleague Federica Cherubini who was also in Perugia, I’ve curated a Storify archive of quotes posted to Twitter during the event, highlighting the four key themes of the festival: The Snowden Effect; audience engagement; verififcation; online ethics; emerging business models.
