A new future for Journalism – a Progressive Media point-of-view


A nice piece of work from Tony Deifell, Tracy Van Slyke and the folks from The Media Consortium titled The Big Thaw: Charting a New Future for Journalism. Here’s my favorite excerpt from the publication, from Volume 2, Chapter 2, page 16:

The new competitive landscape requires publishers to build many new
competencies, including community-building, strategic use of technology, multiplatform agility, greater integrated organizational functions and an ability to experiment, which may require counterintuitive ways of working.

Van Slyke is also the co-author of the soon-to-be-released book Beyond the Echo Chamber: Reshaping Politics through networked Progressive Media. In the past week, she has posted a series of four posts exploring the four layers of networks that she and co-author Jessica Clark explore in their book. There’s some nice visuals, intuitive visuals in these posts.

Aah, the trials and tribulations of news media. I wonder if Clay Shirky is right, that things will get worse before they get better?
