We’re milking our recent poll with Editor & Publisher while we can. Previously we looked at what editors had to say about how their own jobs are changing and then about how they use freelancers. We also asked them to spitball about the future. More specifically we asked, “What one innovation do you most want to see happen to the field of journalism in the next five years?”
Of the 609 responses we received, a great many were pleas for the return of quality journalism, calls for the overthrow of our search engine overlords, exhortations to rebellion against the tyranny of CPMs, disgust with digital standards and so on. However, plenty were also novel or revealing. Being fans of visual representations of large datasets, as well as stuck in the internet of the 20th Century, we put together a nice word cloud based on the responses.

This article examines the relative value of open innovation principles for digital media, exemplified by the emergence of Open Application Programming Interfaces (Open APIs) at four news organizations: The New York Times, The Guardian, USA Today and NPR. The use of Open APIs represents a shift toward an open innovation paradigm that may help address twin challenges facing the news industry: the need for improved R&D and the need for new revenue streams. This paper extends the interdisciplinary study of open innovation to digital communication. Findings indicate that the use of Open APIs has accelerated R&D through knowledge-sharing with web developers; generated new means of commercializing content by extending a firm’s product portfolio; and forged innovation networks that function as external R&D departments. The article discusses the constant negotiation between openness and control, and open and closed paradigms in journalism.
