A new consensus on the future of news

Just a couple of years ago, although it feels like a lot longer, the media world was embroiled in something like a gigantic family argument over the idea of whether it was good idea to charge readers for news online. Among aficionados, this was known as the "paywall debate."

Davide Lamagni's curator insight, January 10, 4:19 AM

We are all capable of re-posting things, a journalist should be someone paid to investigate the various aspects of a controversial matter and expose them honestly to the general public. We have no need for parrot-fashion repetition of one-sided arguments and misleading reports.

The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest

The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest | Journalism in Transition | Scoop.it

Postill, J. forthcoming. The uneven convergence of digital freedom activism and popular protest: a global theory of the new protest movements. Submitted to the journal Convergence in September 2013, Special issue on “New Media, Global Activism and Politics” Vol. 20, no. 3 (August 2014).

 

The existing literature on the recent global wave of social protest ranges from theories that regard new media as ‘game-changers’, to those that stress the centrality of global communication networks or of online/offline articulations in the occupied squares, to those that seek explanations not in new media but in the protracted crisis of financial capitalism. This article proposes an alternative theory of the new protest movements centred on the growing convergence of the global movement for digital freedom with local forms of social unrest. Eschewing vague references to undifferentiated ‘digital natives’ or young indignants as the driving force behind the protests, the proposed theory highlights the importance of a global techno-libertarian vanguard led by three types of digital freedom specialist, namely hackers, lawyers and journalists. In some national contexts but not others, these politicised technology ‘nerds’ succeeded in joining forces with a heterogeneous front made up of both tech and non-tech specialists (artists, designers, social activists, intellectuals, teachers, students, etc.), blending their techno-libertarianism with popular demands for freedom and social justice. The proposed term for this novel formula is 3MP (3 techno-libertarian types + an activist miscellany + the general population). The empirical evidence for this theory is drawn from my anthropological research among Spain’s indignados as well as from the secondary comparative literature both from countries where the powerful 3MP convergence took place (e.g. Iceland, Tunisia, the US, Mexico) and from those where it failed to do so (e.g. the Netherlands).

The Consequences of the Internet for Politics - Annual Review of Political Science, 15(1):35

The Consequences of the Internet for Politics - Annual Review of Political Science, 15(1):35 | Journalism in Transition | Scoop.it

Political scientists are only now beginning to come to terms with the importance of the Internet to politics. The most promising way to study the Internet is to look at the role that causal mechanisms such as the lowering of transaction costs, homophilous sorting, and preference falsification play in intermediating between specific aspects of the Internet and political outcomes. This will allow scholars to disentangle the relevant causal relationships and contribute to important present debates over whether the Internet exacerbates polarization in the United States, and whether social media helped pave the way toward the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011. Over time, ever fewer political scientists are likely to study the Internet as such, as it becomes more and more a part of everyday political life. However, integrating the Internet's effects with present debates over politics, and taking proper advantage of the extraordinary data that it can provide, requires good causal arguments and attention to their underlying mechanisms.
