How can media organizations innovate when resources are constrained? These are some of the critical questions that will be addressed during RJI’s fall 2012 Tablet Symposium on December 7. Futurist Michael Rogers and digital media guru Douglas Bennett will lead discussions about the technologies and strategies that are likely to shape digital publishing and the news media for the rest of the decade.
