The New England First Amendment Coalition launched in 2020 a monthly educational series featuring short, practical lessons on journalism and the First Amendment.
The goal of the program — called “30 Minute Skills” — is to provide reporters and other citizens knowledge they can use immediately in newsgathering, data collection, storytelling, and other areas of journalism and First Amendment law.
The lessons are provided in a 30-minute format to accommodate the demanding schedules faced by many working in New England newsrooms. The program is free and open to the public. Registration for each lesson is required.
Local publishers across Scandinavia and the US use news automation to capture untapped reader demand and untapped revenue. A veteran in the field is the Swedish local media group NTM which uses automated content to cover multiple local topics like house sales, company registrations, traffic, and sports, which means they have automatically updated content across all local communities, all the time. The incremental local stories drive traffic, engagement, ad revenue, and subscription sales. Join this webinar to discover why NTM has made automated content part of their digital strategy – and get to ask all your questions about robot-written content. Free for all local media executives.

Our-Hometown, Inc. will be hosting a LIVE WEBINAR on using AI for Image Generation on June 29th at 3 PM Eastern.
We’ve seen AI technologies advance at a rapid pace throughout the first half of 2023, and that trend isn’t expected to stall out any time soon. One of the major tools released to the public this year is DALL-E 2 by OpenAI (the same company that brought you ChatGPT).
DALL-E 2 is an AI image generation system that creates images and digital art from a simple text description entered by the end user. While this kind of technology has endless potential, one key way that it can impact the news publishing industry is by replacing generic stock imagery.
It is no secret that content shared across social media and the internet, in general, performs better when there is an attached image or graphic to draw the reader’s attention. However, it is unlikely that you’ll have a relevant stock image for every topic, and using a generic image of your publication’s logo can become redundant.
Enter DALL-E 2.
By harnessing the power of DALL-E 2, publishers can enter a short description and generate a completely custom graphic to use with their story, potentially eliminating the need for stock imagery services altogether.
Join us on June 29th at 3 PM Eastern for a complete overview of AI-generated imagery and other use cases. As always, the presentation is free to Our-Hometown customers and members of our partnered Press Associations.

The cost to the general public is $25.
