The Madison Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) invited journalists from print, broadcast and digital to Google 101 for Journalists. This unique, free session led by Google’s Jake Parillo introduced ways journalists can search smarter, keep better tabs on their beats, see what’s hot and what’s not, add a visual edge to online content, and use Google on the go when reporting in the field.
Google 101 for Journalists was held Oct. 13, 7 pm, at the Vintage Brewing Company, 674 S. Whitney Way, Madison, Wis.
