When you see the entire flow of how bad information gets started, all of the sudden, the 'politics' behind fake news becomes clear. Do we have the power to create actual maps of meme creators and distributors in order to help bring light to the problem?

This "hackathon"-like roundtable kicks things off by inviting people who want to try and address this challenge in practical ways. We'll displaying the results of collaborative efforts on several memes, to be worked on throughout the summit, and also try to lay the foundation for similar projects in the year to come.

We'll start out with an intense session at 2:30-3:15, and if there's still motivation and tasks to keep things going, will be around through our time slot in this tent.  Feel free to stop by!

(This session is being worked on in advance, with NewsFrames and Zotero applications)
