“The ‘I’ in ISOJ may as well stand for intimate. Twenty years ago, this conference started and it was small, and it’s remained small by design; it’s large in ambition, it’s large enough to have a real impact,” said founder and CEO of the Texas Tribune, Evan Smith, upon conclusion of the first day of the International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ) this year, in recognition of the event’s 20 years.
