Perhaps the future of journalism lies not in the art of a highly skilled orator but instead in the skills of a facilitator of stories who is able to ascertain one truth by taking the voices of many and vastly enriching the media we consume.

Why disruptive technology will continue to claim jobs in the media industry | memeburn | Crowdsourced Journalism | Scoop.it

We need quality reporting so that we can make the right decisions about our future, and about hugely important issues such as the economy, ecology, education, elder-care, energy use, the environment — and those are just the issues that begin with ‘e’.
The problem is we don’t have a value recovery mechanism for quality journalism. Clicks are the currency for most of today’s media but a click is a click regardless of the quality of the content it surfaces.

A journalist's guide to crowdsourcing - Consider crowdsourcing a fork in the citizen journalism movement. | Crowdsourced Journalism | Scoop.it

 


Unlike more traditional notions of "citizen journalism," crowdsourcing does not ask readers to become anything more than what they've always been: eyewitnesses to their daily lives. They need not learn advanced reporting skills, journalism ethics or how to be a better writer. It doesn't ask readers to commit hours of their lives in work for a publisher with little or no financial compensation. Nor does it allow any one reader's work to stand its own, without the context of many additional points of view.

Behold! The Data Journalism Handbook | via Gigaom

Behold! The Data Journalism Handbook | via Gigaom | Crowdsourced Journalism | Scoop.it

Some of the media industry's leading "data journalists" have published a crowdsourced handbook for the practice of data-oriented journalism. As many of us know, one of the big areas of focus over the past year has been “big data” — the idea that there can be immense value in sifting out patterns in the massive quantities of user data and other information that many companies generate. Consider, then, the value in finding patterns in the sea of news-related information we are immersed in every day of our lives. This past weekend, at the 2012 International Journalism Festival in Italy, the Data Journalism Handbook was unveiled - a free ebook that could be a useful resource for anyone who works with, and writes about, data. The ebook is free under a Creative Commons license. .

To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of the death of newspapers are somewhat exaggerated. But traditional media is experiencing the “perfect storm” of declining circulations, collapsing advertising revenues and seismic changes in the way news is produced and consumed.
