Yesterday was a busy first day of the MIT-Knight Civic Media conference. You can catch up via the conference liveblog. Highlights included first panel, Dan Sinker’s summary of the hack session, the announcement of the Knight News Challenge winners and details about Knight’s new prototype fund with Michael Maness and Joi Ito.
