@ WAN: Newspaper Business Frets Over Digital In Sweden

I arrived in Gothenburg, Sweden, this evening, where the Scandinavian climate is unexpectedly balmy and some 500 newspaper industry execs have gathered for the World Association of Newspaper’s (WAN) annual global congress. The World Editors Forum (WEF) begins in earnest Monday morning and, after the pleasantries from Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf, delegates get down to the nitty-gritty… Are integrated newsrooms really working? Can hyperlocal pay its way? What will “Journalism 2.0” look like? And where does Ikea fit in? Those are some of the questions being tackled by guests including Google (NSDQ: GOOG) EMEA VP Nikesh Arora, WSJ.com managing editor Almar Latour and New York Times (NYSE: NYT) digital editor Jim Roberts over the next couple of days. On Tuesday, I chair a panel on the subject of mobile journalism. Get in touch
