6:00-7:15 p.m.: “Embracing the Future: Working in a Visual World” - Gary Reyes, staff photojournalist, San Jose Mercury News. Reyes will talk about making the leap from silent fly-on-the-wall photographer, to asking-questions in-your-face journalist, and the tips and techniques he's learned along the way.

12:45-2:00 p.m.: “The 21st-Century Studio: One Independent, Laptop Producer's Thoughts on the Journey from KDMC to the Field to the Challenges of Today's Niche Audiences” - Corey Takahashi, independent journalist and producer. Every laptop producer creates their own setup. Takahaski explains how his came together, (built slowly over time as each piece of equipment began to pay for itself), and how he moved from doing no video -- before he attended the KDMC workshops -- to doing a fair amount of it now.

6:15-7:45 p.m.: "Mobile Reporting Tools and Techniques: A Beginners Guide to Using Mobile Technology for News Gathering and Publishing” - Will Sullivan, Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Fellow, University of Missouri and interactive director, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Sullivan presents examples of mobile reporting being done in the field, practical techniques and tools to use, some future ideas for mobile reporting and how it might change how we do journalism.
