Gaming industry executives, designers and artists will convene with investigative journalists to explore how gaming platforms can be used to reach and engage citizens in investigative journalism. In addition to participating in discussions with industry leaders, conference participants will be divided into teams and challenged to develop pitches for news games that connect players in radically new ways. The winning team will receive $10,000 worth of development time from Coco Studios to jump-start its idea with the Center for Investigative Reporting.

Thanks for making the CIR/Google TechRaking conference such a success! We are also eager to hear about the ideas and projects everyone came up with on Thursday and will consider providing small start-up support for a few new ideas that could help investigative reporters do their work. Please share ideas in the survey and follow the TechRaking groups on Facebook, Google + for more information. We're excited to continue the conversation.
