– So You Want to Be a Journalist

A humorous look at
the lofty expectations some new journalism grads have about walking out of
university and into a metro daily.

Do you want to work
at Quest Newspapers? No, I want to work at the New York Times.

"The Register
Citizen has six times the readership online that it has in print, and its
new building is designed to mirror the open, collaborative culture of the
Web. The business plan is based on making The Register Citizen’s Web
site a magnet for all things local and thus an attractive place for
advertisers, sponsors and others who can replace declining newspaper
subscribers and advertisers."

face=Georgia>"Everymap.com.au is part of Streetcorner.com.au,
which also comprises a series of hyper-local citizen journalism sites
dedicated to different Sydney
precincts.
The business model for both sites – and a third which is expected to launch
next year – will be local business advertising, Ms Clark said."

 

When
All Content Is Personalized, Who Needs TV Networks?

In all these cases, one thing
is clear: The world is gradually moving toward on-demand viewing based on personalized
recommendations. But in a world where viewers choose what to watch based on
their own personal interests, what happens to the gatekeepers who
previously had toiled to make sure people tuned in to a certain show at a
certain time?

Perhaps the best example of
this comes from Netflix’s recommendations engine: its streaming
service doesn’t thrive because it offers users the hottest new
releases, but because it consistently serves up content that is relevant to
the user.

Brands Are Dominating Social Media

face=Georgia>Posted: 15 Dec 2010 05:13 PM PST

face=Georgia>"The dominance of big marketers is in many ways a
straightforward matter of resources. For example, Pepsico’s Gatorade has a
group of full-time staff who man their "Mission Control" room,
monitoring and participating in social media 24 hours a day. Smaller brands
may not be able to afford that."

face=Georgia>Posted: 15 Dec 2010 05:05 PM PST

One way to

Size of staff is something of
a predictor of size of traffic, it turns out! If you have no staff, you
cannot make the traffic, for one thing.

interested in. Another part of what they’re doing is buying from and selling

"The bottom line is that the model of journalism that prioritises
objectivity is probably dead.
Its efficacy was always exaggerated, but in a world where journalistic
judgement and knowledge of the underlying facts of a story are so easily
challenged and surpassed, journalists can no longer pretend to be offering
an impartial, authoritative, god’s-eye-view of the news."

face=Georgia>Posted: 07 Dec 2010 10:52 PM PST

face=Georgia>"No fewer than 92% of Americans today “use
multiple platforms to get their daily news,” according to a survey
conducted earlier this year by the Pew Research
Center
. However, 70%
of respondents felt the volume of news was overwhelming and 50% said they
looked to others to help them divine its significance."

This represents a golden opportunity, if you believe, as I do, that
journalists not only possess valuable insights into the matters they cover
but also have an absolute obligation to share their perspectives with the
public after diligently gleaning all sides of a story in an ethical and
open-minded manner.

For journalists to be able to report effectively on the news and its
significance, we have to replace the intellectually indefensible pretense
of objectivity with a more authentic standard that journalists actually can
live up to.

Groupon Could Own Your Brand’s Future

face=Georgia>Posted: 07 Dec 2010 05:08 PM PST

face=Georgia>Groupon’s success should have every CMO pondering what
a future tyranny of price could mean for sales and margins.
– Price has always been a somewhat artificial construct.

– Sales, discounts and promotions erase these beliefs, or premiums.
– Therefore, Groupon isn’t a distribution or sampling tactic, but rather a
repricing strategy.

Future of Media Gradually Coming Into Focus

face=Georgia>Posted: 07 Dec 2010 04:46 PM PST

face=Georgia>"Newsrooms of the future are likely to be built
around the topics they cover (Wall Street, Sports, New York City) instead
of the medium they are in (newspapers, television, radio) because they will
likely have to transcend any one medium and distribute on several so they
can highlight their strength of coverage of their particular subject matter
and bring in the revenue they need to support a healthy news
organization."
