Interested learning more of the strategies that may be born of this conference, with extra interest in how they might be applied to medium/small media outlets on strict budgets.

Lots of great ideas flowing. Would like to know if there will be any support and guidance for those interested in starting a nonprofit to keep investigative reporting alive.
