The JAWS Seminar on Revitalizing Regional Media, presented by Dev Nadkarni was well received by members of the media yesterday. Print, Radio and TV Journalists and Editors were eager to learn more about the new era of Regional Media in this digital age.

According to Dev, the web regardless of how we may feel about it personally, is the way to go for news organizations. He draws from his experience as the creater of the Islands Business website which has seen a tremendous increase in traffice in its first year on-line.

Currently the only Samoan news provided online from Samoa is on Event Polynesia, but there are others who update Samoan news worldwide.
JAWS would like to thank Dev for taking his time to meet with local media, we would also like to thank the Public Sector Improvement Facility for the use of the Conference Room.
