I spent this past weekend in Philadelphia at the Local Independent Online News Publishers conference with local journalists and publishers from around the United States. Speakers discussed everything from online audience trends, revenue generation ideas, and how to deal with prickly legal issues. Josh Stearns, director of journalism and sustainability at the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, put together a great Google Doc of notes summarizing the conference, but here are a few highlights. If you want to read more of what was discussed, check out the hashtag #lion15 on Twitter.
