Platform or Publisher? Call it whatever you want. But it's the future of media. - moviepilot.com | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We started moviepilot.com in 2012, right when Facebook started to become a big driver for content distribution. We were convinced that Facebook as a platform had the power to completely change the media landscape. That Facebook would become the frontpage of everything. The place you would discover what is going on in the world, in your network, in your family or your field of interest.

Jeff Bezos and the Post Don't Know the Future of Media, But Are Preparing for It Anyway | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
When Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post just more than a year ago, expectations of a digital renaissance for the paper became assumptions. What would one of the most visionary business minds of the Internet age do with something as stodgy and inflexible as a newspaper?

Effects of Algorithm Awareness - P2P Foundation

Effects of Algorithm Awareness - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
"The rise in prevalence of algorithmically curated feeds in online news and social media sites raises a new question for designers, critics, and scholars of media: how aware are users of the role of algorithms and filters in their news sources? This paper outlines an approach to studying how users perceive the algorithmic "curation" of their feeds, using Facebook as a sample case. Such a problem presents particular challenges when, as is common, neither the user nor the researcher has access to the actual proprietary algorithms at work."

A short video on Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Work on developing Commons Based Reciprocity Licenses (or CBRLs, for short) continues apace here at the P2P Foundation. When speaking of the types of licenses, we often find it hard to explain how they fill a niche in the alt. license spectrum, falling somewhere between the straight up copyleft and the popular Creative Commons Non-Commercial License.

» Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable Clay Shirky

Back in 1993, the Knight-Ridder newspaper chain began investigating piracy of Dave Barry’s popular column, which was published by the Miami Herald and syndicated widely. In the course of tracking down the sources of unlicensed distribution, they found many things, including the copying of his column to alt.fan.dave_barry on usenet; a 2000-person strong mailing list also reading pirated versions; and a teenager in the Midwest who was doing some of the copying himself, because he loved Barry’s work so much he wanted everybody to be able to read it.

Journalists: Print Newspapers Are Dying, Time to Pivot - TidBITS

The Roanoke Times, the local paper in my family home, is a classic metro daily, with roots that go back to the 1880s. Like most such papers, it ran into trouble in the middle of last decade, as print advertising revenue fell, leaving a hole in the balance sheet that digital advertising couldn’t fill. When the 2008 recession accelerated those problems, the Times’ parent company, Landmark, began looking for a buyer, eventually selling it to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Media Group in 2013. The acquisition was greeted with relief in the newsroom, as Buffett had famously assured the employees at his earlier purchases “Your paper will operate from a position of financial strength.” Three months after acquiring the Times, BH Media fired 31 employees, a bit over a tenth of the workforce.

It's Official: The Newspaper Industry Has Given Up on Newspapers - Street Fight

It's Official: The Newspaper Industry Has Given Up on Newspapers - Street Fight | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In the past couple of weeks, three of the major legacy media companies announced they were splitting their companies into separate-but-unequal broadcast and print ventures. The decisions by Gannett, E.W. Scripps and Tribune to divide their once “synergistic business models” into separate and very distinct businesses indicate that we are now at the beginning of the end-of-the-end for this industry. The pronouncements followed similar moves recently by News Corp, Belo, Media General and others.

P2P Foundation » Blog Archive » Video of the Day: Open State cc on Building the Open Source Economy

We recently featured Open State cc as a “Project of the Day” on the P2P blog. I first heard about it while watching Dominik Wind’s excellent presentation at this year’s Ouishare Fest. As I expressed in that earlier post, “In talking with others afterwards, we agreed that it had been amongst the most powerful. While other sharing initiatives mentioned environmental conservation as a “positive element” of the mutualization of resources, there was precious little specific talk about restoration or active environmental engagement. Dominic’s talk particularly hit home within this context, as he presented it from a very intimate, familiar standpoint.”

A few quibbles with Clay Shirky's 'Nostalgia and Newspapers ... | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Five years ago Clay Shirky wrote an eloquent blog post titled “Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable.” His essential argument was that we were only at the very beginning of trying to figure out new models for journalism following the cataclysmic changes wrought by the Internet — like Europeans in the decades immediately following the invention of Gutenberg’s press. Along with a subsequent talk he gave at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, Shirky helped me frame the ideas that form the foundation of “The Wired City,” my book about online community journalism.

- Nostalgia and Newspapers Clay Shirky

Aaron Kushner, CEO of Freedom Communications and the architect of a contrarian plan to expand southern California newspapers, began erecting hard paywalls for his digital properties while increasing newsroom and print outlay in the summer of 2012. That strategyimploded earlier this month, with layoffs, buy-outs, furloughs and the merger of two Freedom papers, essentially reversing the previous two years of investment.
