Marc Andreessen Thinks the News Business Is About to Grow 1,000 Percent

Marc Andreessen Thinks the News Business Is About to Grow 1,000 Percent | Digital and online journalism | Scoop.it

The news business is about to undergo a long boom driven by a tenfold increase in demand, says Silicon Valley wunderkind Marc Andreessen. Here's what that will mean to news consumers.

garassini's insight:

L'opinione di Marc Andreessen sul futuro del giornalismo online. Secondo l'inventore del primo browser grafico della storia, Mosaic, il fatto che molti pezzi grossi della Rete abbiamo investito nell'editoria (Jeff Bezos di Amazon, Marissa Mayer di Yahoo, Pierre Omidyar di eBay, fra gli altri) è il segno che le news sono tutt'latro che marginali nel nuovo ecosistema della rete. E questo avrà ricadute anche dal punto di vista economico. C'è da ben sperare.

If you've only considered traditional media, this article will come as a shock. But from another perspective, the interest graph, niche curation, the explosion of mobile and several other factors are boosting the opportunity for content.

Excellent analysis by Gilles Raymond, the founder of mobile and tablet news app News Republic.


In other words, the App Store model is fundamentally a short-tail model which is mimicked after the iTunes store, itself derived from the way music companies launched records: hits or miss...


What the world badly needs is a long tail social/SEO discovery model like we have on the Web and which makes it possible for niche content publishers or e-commerce shops to be discovered. Small is beautiful and I love the variety of the Web: as a former mobile guy, I miss it badly on my smartphone.


But beyond my own opinion, it's the whole ecosystem that needs a healthy mix of organic and paid discovery in order to develop its full potential.

Twitter vs. Facebook as a news source: Ferguson shows the downsides of an algorithmic filter

Twitter vs. Facebook as a news source: Ferguson shows the downsides of an algorithmic filter | Digital and online journalism | Scoop.it
Twitter’s brevity and the nature of the relationship that users have with each other will likely always make it better suited for breaking news, but Facebook also loses out as a news source because of the way it uses ranking algorithms to filter the newsfeed
garassini's insight:

Il funzionamento di Facebook lo rende poco adatto alla diffusione di news. L'algoritmo che decide cosa viene visualizzato nel newsfeed risponde a logiche che lo rendono poco adatto a seguire news in tempo reale, a differenza di Twitter. Un'analisi interessante e ben documentata di un ennesimo esempio dell'esistenza della bolla-filtro

New Media models: when BuzzFeed fact checks a Pulitzer-prize winner | Digital and online journalism | Scoop.it

Just two days ago, the Guardian and the Washington Post were awarded the prestigious Pulitzer prize for their work relaying Edward Snowden’s revelations about the NSA. This is of course well deserved and a lot of us probably feel great that we can still count on independent press to deliver us serious, quality news.

 

Or can we?

My first post on LinkedIn's new publishing platform - which is quite awesome and very straightforward I have to say. 


I found it ironic that in the same week, the same media institution was both awarded the most prestigious prize in journalism and the origin of a misinformed article that went viral.


Not trying to put some blame here but it inspired me a few thoughts on the future of online content and of course content curation.
