Decades of often awkward interaction with America's "print media" professionals has proven (to me) that writers who talk about their medium are bores, and also

Newspaper companies need to stop lying to themselves, says longtime newspaper editor | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it
Former newspaper editor David Boardman says too many newspaper companies and industry executives are fooling themselves by pretending that their business is better than it really is. They need to face reality, he says — and maybe even stop printing newspapers altogether

Reflections of a Newsosaur: The newspaper crisis, by the numbers

Since hitting that high note in 2005, the industry has undergone a dramatic and traumatic contraction, losing nearly half of its print readership and more than a third of its revenues. With the pre-tax profits of the publicly held publishers cut by 39% since 2003, newsroom staffing has dropped to a historically low level. In spite of the declared determination of most publishers to pivot from print to pixels, the industry's share of the digital advertising market has plunged by more than 50%. 

Rodrigo Mesquita's insight:

A newspaper executive told me a few days ago that some people in the industry hate my continuing coverage of the challenges facing newspapers. For the record, I don’t enjoy writing this stuff any more than newspaper people like reading it. But I do it because I am trying to remind them of the urgent and formidable challenges they face in not just protecting their individual businesses but also in preserving the irreplaceable public trust that newspapers represent.

A Tecnologia Democratizará os Processos de Informação

A Tecnologia Democratizará os Processos de Informação | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it

>> Essa aventura fascinante, infelizmente abortada, tinha sido iniciada em 1988 por um pequeno grupo de jornalistas que comungou minha visão de futuro desenvolvida em meados dos anos 1980. No primeiro passo, reformulamos todos os processos informativos (prospecção, captação e distribuição) do Grupo Estado para que ele pudesse avançar no mercado como empresa de informação e não exclusivamente jornalística.

Rodrigo Mesquita's insight:

1995: É redundância dizer que estamos assistindo ao mais profundo, dramático e rápido processo de mudança que a humanidade já sofreu. Mas é necessário quando estamos falando de responsabilidade das empresas e profissionais empenhados em informar o mercado financeiro: o primeiro setor da nossa sociedade que se interligou em tempo real globalmente, subvertendo a ordem instituída e questionando a noção de soberania nacional.

...

2014: Considerando que nos próximos dez anos a tecnologia estará integrada nos ambientes e em cada um de nós – não será mais algo que você liga e desliga – e que isso mudará totalmente a experiência humana de viver, vejo os avanços das multiplataformas (sistemas integrados) de atuação na rede como a principal tendência em 2014.

Was Content Curation born in a French Hospital 95 Years Ago?

Was Content Curation born in a French Hospital 95 Years Ago? | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it
America joined World War I in April, 1917. With tensions building since 1915, President Wilson finally determined that American interests and lives, increasingly threatened by unrestricted submarine warfare on the part of Germans, required military action. War was declared on Germany, and within a few days America joined its allies in the struggle. However, it would be several months before sufficient troop strength could be mobilized. By March of 1918, only 318,000 Americans had arrived in France, and they were severely overmatched at first.

Pourquoi le journalisme en ligne n’a toujours pas de modèle économique | L'Atelier des icônes

Pourquoi le journalisme en ligne n’a toujours pas de modèle économique | L'Atelier des icônes | Journalism and the WEB | Scoop.it

Nième discussion hier soir, avec une étudiante en journalisme, sur les difficultés économiques de la presse. Une fois qu’on a fait le compte de toutes les raisons objectives qui tirent vers le low cost, des chaînes d’info continue au journalisme people en passant par l’indexation des images (et non, pas des amateurs…), on arrive toujours au même constat: l’absence de modèle économique du web..

Rodrigo Mesquita's insight:

 Le problème du modèle économique en ligne est moins celui de la presse que celui des agences de publicité, incapables pour l’instant de dépasser le modèle des médias de masse. De ce côté-là aussi, on voit que les choses commencent à bouger. On le devine, la question du modèle économique ne restera pas éternellement sans réponse.
