The Daily After One Year: Some Lessons Learned

The Daily After One Year: Some Lessons Learned | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

for now, just shy of two years into the iPad era, The Daily is still around and growing. According to publisher Greg Clayman, The Daily has 250,000 monthly readers and 100,000 paid subscribers, which would put it the size of The Detroit Free Press or The Seattle Times. It has expanded beyond Apple to be on Android devices. It has the attention and track record with top-flight advertisers, who aren’t yet ready to throw in the towel on the ambitious experiment — and appreciate the risk News Corp. is taking with it.

“I think it is the future of print,” said Josh Martin, group director of media strategy at ID Media. “I think their model of a free trial, followed by a paid model is a good bet

The New York Times vs. Mail Online: Who’s Got The Better Business Model?

The New York Times vs. Mail Online: Who’s Got The Better Business Model? | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

Britain’s new world champion, by contrast, sees things in another light. It rejects any form of print and online integration. It runs its online operation under an editor – Martin Clarke – who’s free to produce a digital version that, by the end of a working day, bears almost no similarity to what Paul Dacre ordains for print. “A good story’s a good story – particularly a good human story”, Clarke tells his growing American audience. But he doesn’t try to break the bank when he tells it.

The mothership Mail Online office in Kensington has only 25 seats and terminals. In New York, there are 20 staff people, nine in Los Angeles (most of them buying celebrity pictures). You’re not talking huge wage bills, or (in NYT mode) striving to slim 1,250 journalists down to 1,000. Mail numbers keep early losses under control and let profits flow more easily; the Huffington Post, remember, took off with 50 staff. Mail Online, even before its current American surge, made £15m profit last year.

Curate, create and conquer: Journalism 2.0 startups to watch | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

Investors see strong potential in the companies that curate, rather than create, content. A group of technologies broadly defined as “personalized news aggregators” or “content curators” have emerged to distribute information, recommend news articles to users and offer publishers opportunities to monetize content through targeted advertising. “We have very dedicated investors who believe in both the space and the product”

New York Times releases code to help journalists collaborate on WordPress, other platforms

New York Times releases code to help journalists collaborate on WordPress, other platforms | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

More and more journalists use blogging platforms to write and edit stories, but those text editors are pretty basic: It’s not easy to see what changes others have made to a post. And two people can open the same post, overwriting one another’s edits.

The New York Times has solved those problems for online journalists by building a tool that will track changes in a browser-based text editor. The tool, called ICE (for Integrated Content Editor) was built so that it will work with a variety of text editors; the Times has already built plugins for WordPress and TinyMCE, a common text editor used in blogging platforms. (The New York Times Company is an investor in Automattic, the company that develops the WordPress blogging platform.)

It must be tough to be in the traditional journalism field. Us tech bloggers have cut our teeth on social media, making mistakes and learning the ropes as we grew. But traditional journalists have had it tougher when it comes to social: they have big brother Associated Press telling them what to tweet and what not to tweet.

News Cafes and Open Newsrooms: Experiments in Innovation

News Cafes and Open Newsrooms: Experiments in Innovation | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

"So we opened the doors wide to the community. You walk into our building it looks like a cross between a Starbucks and a library and kind of a newsroom. There’s leather couches and chairs and big screen TVs and you go a bit further and there are café tables, an outdoor courtyard with tables, free Wi-Fi, Artist of the Month hanging on the wall, coffee and pastries for sale. So that is part of the effort to bring people in. We wanted to design the building as a community center that had other reasons for them to be here than to talk to us. We wanted to have a continuum of engagement with the public."

UK’s The Guardian is expanding its open journalism experiment with a new live blog that, according to one editor, aims to “bring readers into the heart of our news editing operation.”

Newsdesk Live launched today and will not only incorporate the news organization’s newslist of daily stories but also a comment thread, writes national news editor Dan Roberts. This new feature allows “readers to discuss what’s going on directly rather than having to do so via Twitter,” Roberts explains.

Seth's Blog: When the world changes...

The history of media and technology is an endless series of failed rearguard actions as industry leaders attempt to solidify their positions on a bed of quicksand.

Again and again the winners are individuals and organizations that spot opportunities in the next thing, as opposed to those that would demonize, marginalize or illegalize (is that a word?) it. Breaking systems that benefit your customers is dumb. Taking money from lobbyists to break those systems is dumber still.

ABC, Reuters, Twitter, Klout scores and newsroom policies

ABC, Reuters, Twitter, Klout scores and newsroom policies | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

"The company gives its employees room to breathe. I’ve seen several colleagues tweet things at Reuters that would never be allowed at KGO and would be frowned upon by the higher-ups at Disney-ABC, but this company recognizes that a little heartburn is expected now and then with the trade-off of allowing your people to be people — with personalities, opinions and thoughts.

The trade-off works. People like Social Media Editor Anthony De Rosa (disclosure: my boss) and Director of News Product Alex Leo have created an amazing dotcom product and built a tremendous community on various social platforms — including their own. Their personality and transparency plays a large part in why people follow them, and why Reuters content does well when either of them tweet or Facebook or tumble it out."

With a False Start on Paterno's Death, SEO Journalism Fails Again

With a False Start on Paterno's Death, SEO Journalism Fails Again | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

"(saturday night) a student website prematurely announced former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had died, leading one veritable news organization and also the Huffington Post to erroneously publish his obituary. They wanted to be first, so fact checking didn’t seem to matter. Most shamefully of all, neither outlet sourced their information to the student site until it turned out to be wrong (at least give credit where credit is due if you can’t even pick up a phone to do your own reporting). Almost immediately, the false news went viral."

Why reporters don’t fact-check assertions and how the Web could change that

A week after the Internet turned on New York Times Public Editor Arthur Brisbane for asking whether reporters should fact-check assertions, a few people explore why journalists, frankly, don’t check out everything they publish in news stories.

Conor Friedersdorf writes that newspapers are set up to provide two things independently: nonjudgmental and inconclusive news reporting, and opinion writing that helps people sort out truth from fiction

'Highly Tweeted Articles Were 11 Times More Likely to Be Highly Cited'

'Highly Tweeted Articles Were 11 Times More Likely to Be Highly Cited' | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it

We have a new study for those who argue that social media, whatever its virtues may be, doesn't correlate very well with the real world. It comes from the Journal of Medical Internet Research and is based on a three-year study of that journal's articles' relative success in the Twitter and academic worlds.

The bottom line is simple: articles that many people tweeted about were 11 times more likely to be highly cited than those who few people tweeted about. Its implications are even more interesting. It generally takes months and years for papers to be cited by other scientific publications.

Famous Photogs Pose With Their Most Iconic Images | Journalism and Internet | Scoop.it


(...)At a time when everyone has a camera in their pocket and millions, if not billions of photos are flying around the internet each day, Mantoani wants to help people understand that iconic photos don’t just happen. They are the product of people who devote their entire lives to photography. Giving these people a face, he says, helps do that.

“It was important to step back and understand that cameras didn’t make these photos, photographers made these photos,” he says. “Without these people and their understanding of photography, these moments would not be there for us to understand and appreciate over the course of time.”
