Justin McElroy – Media & Their Communities: An Evolution in the 21st Century – TEDxTerryTalks2011

Justin McElroy discusses media through the lens of the Ubyssey, the University of British Columbia’s campus newspaper.

Justin McElroy has been Coordinating Editor of The Ubyssey, UBC’s student newspaper, since April 2010. In that time, The Ubyssey has redesigned its website, print product, and seen web traffic triple. During his time at UBC, Justin has been involved heavily in campus media, previously serving as News and Sports Editor of The Ubyssey, volunteering for CiTR, working for Maclean’s OnCampus, and thinking far too often about UBC President Stephen Toope.

About TEDx:

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)
