Launched in 2007, Idea Lab is a group blog by innovative thinkers and entrepreneurs who are reinventing media in the digital age. Initially the blog was set up exclusively for authors who won a grant in the Knight News Challenge. Now it includes News Challenge grantees, along with other entrepreneurs, project leaders and thinkers at places such as Journovation Central at Syracuse, the Northwestern University Knight Lab, Reese News Lab, John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford and the MIT Center for Civic Media.

The authors will use Idea Lab to explain their projects, share intelligence and interact with the community online and at MediaShift events. If you’re interested in joining them, please use our Feedback Form to let us know.

Idea Lab is produced by MediaShift and hosted by PBS. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation provided a grant to MediaShift to produce Idea Lab and to upgrade MediaShift with multimedia elements.
