A news writer with a bad sense of humour and questionable degree of empathy, Qishin Tariq spent four years with the Star newspaper's court beat, making light reading and terrible headlines of daily crime news and the occasional landmark case. He now writes for technology but occasionally goes back to the courtrooms for specific cases, most recently the corruption trial of Pekan MP Najib Razak. A fan of justice, his favourite brand is DC's Justice League Unlimited, back when it was on Cartoon Network. His talk is about legal journalism and its impact to the public

Starting a Newsweekly. In the 21st Century. Seriously.

@ VOL 14
ON FEB 12, 2015
In the days before Knoxville's urban revitalization, the Metro Pulse weekly paper became a catalyst for conversations which had a positive effect on the city's future. Now Knoxville is primed for the next wave of success beyond downtown and yet there is silence when those conversations are needed most. The core staff of the former Metro Pulse is launching a new paper. As the largest independent, locally-focused paper with the most experienced staff in town, the Knoxville Mercury will facilitate new conversations about our future, provide the city with investigative journalism, give voice to underserved communities and illuminate the region's history and unique culture. This presentation will provide insights on the development of paper and share some sneak peaks of the design that will be nearing completion in mid-February.
