DescriptionOn December 16 2010 Laura Frank the executive director of I-News (formerly known as the Rocky Mountain Investigative News Network) delivered her commencement speech for the University of Colorado’s soon-to-be-defunct journalism school. Frank was optimistic about the future of the industry: “I now recognize you actually are embarking on this adventure at one of the most exciting times - perhaps the most exciting time - in the history of journalism and mass communication” she said. “Never have we had the ability to both gather information as quickly precisely and reliably - or disseminate it as rapidly or widely - as we do today.” [Profile updated April 2 2012]
