Meghin Moore's insight:

This is quite an interesting blog, especially since it's an "optimistic" look at where journalism is or isn't going in the digital age.

Meghin Moore's insight:

Paywalls are a pain, period. I'd rather deal with ads popping up when trying to read a paper's website, as opposed to a paywall happily reminding me that I've hit my limit of stories for the month.

The Worst Work of Journalism
Huffington Post (blog)
This week at least a hundred reporters are doing the worst work of journalism.
Meghin Moore's insight:

There is a point where emotions and journalism meld together. I know that when I end up in journalism, covering topics like these are going to weigh down heavily on me. Is there a point where stories about victims of tragedies might end up overtaking the actual news story in itself, because of how compelling they are?

CNN Tells Stories With Data, in Six-Second Vine Videos

CNN Tells Stories With Data, in Six-Second Vine Videos | Future of Journalism | Scoop.it
Can mobile technology enable us to create innovative data visualizations that are incredibly low-budget, to boot? Absolutely.

Via M. Edward (Ed) Borasky
Meghin Moore's insight:

Vine and Instagram Video are two platforms that are rapidly gaining traction in the journalism world to get the news out. While I'm partial to what Now This News does with the medium, I'm interested to see where this could go in the future. Do more people want their news in six or fifteen second intervals, or do they just want the facts to say they're "keeping up" with what's going on in society?

Millennials in the Workplace: More Engagement, Less Powerpoint

Millennials in the Workplace: More Engagement, Less Powerpoint | Future of Journalism | Scoop.it
As employees and members of your team, Millennials are keen to engage in meaningful work and less motivated by the minutiae of post-college, entry-level positions.

Via Color-Art
Meghin Moore's insight:

I'm technically part of the Millennial generation, which is a description I absolutely loathe. With that said, I'd rather be engaging in actually doing my work (hopefully in social media or journalism) as opposed to just sitting around, doing menial office work. My generation has grown up ready and willing to fully immerse themselves in the world around us, and to actually get to work.

Marissa Mayer "The Future is Personalization"

Marissa Mayer "The Future is Personalization" | Future of Journalism | Scoop.it

Former self-described Google "search girl" and current Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer says that "the future is personalization...where you're the query." Such searches will take into account all your history and preferences.


Via KazzaDrask Media
Meghin Moore's insight:

So if Marissa Mayer says that "the future is personalization," what impact will that have on news? Will journalism start to cater to each and every individual? Will this allow more bias-filled articles to come to light, based on an individual's search preferences? Will the ever-growing divide in the media be affected by this? That's something I'll probably end up seeing as I go on in life.

If there's a future without cable, or even television, what will happen to the cable news networks? It would be impractical to have them on Netflix, because it would constantly need to be updated.
