About Us

The Journalism Accelerator connects the field of news and information with outside areas of expertise to enrich the new media news ecology. This site is a forum, a resource hub, and an information-exchange hosted by a crew experienced in civic engagement and grassroots community building. Beyond the usual suspects, the JA forum invites a range of experts to join in the conversation.

The concept for the Journalism Accelerator has been in development since 2008. Successful organizing models of civic engagement and grassroots community building seeded the idea of JA. The initial vision was a kind of virtual news and information swap meet, providing a space for connecting expertise across networks.

The objective? To create an innovation-exchange model that is fueled by the pulse of the community it serves. To deliver on this promise, the JA forum belongs to its community, not to any institution, foundation or any particular partisan viewpoint.
