TechRaking 2012, a conference surrounding the future of news and technology, took place at the Googleplex in California yesterday. As the Nieman Lab of Journalism reports, kicking off the conference was Google’s head of news products, Richard Gingras, who spoke about eight things that should be thought about as we move into the future of journalism.

  1. A change in “content architecture”
  2. Evolving the narrative form
  3. New tools to support reporters’ day-to-day tasks
  4. Re-thinking editorial roles and workflow?
  5. Exploring “computational” journalism
  6. Leveraging search and social
  7. A shift from emphasis on site design to one on story page design
  8. Constant product innovation culture
