The Future of Journalism

The Future of Journalism | Social media and education |

I selected this piece by Ross Dawson because he is one of my trusted sources and he continues to shed light on the future of journalism. 


He sets the tone by stating:


"There are eight aspects of news that its audience will value, be prepared to pay for, and that will provide a viable financial foundation for quality journalism in the emerging media environment."


The article delves into each of these.  Here's what particularly caught my attention.


**Timeliness is becoming ever-more important in a world ravenous for immediacy.


**Investigative reporting will retain a central role in society. Increasingly this will involve data analysis, and often harnessing information and insights provided by many citizens.


**Insight, through adding context, analysis, and synthesis to news, is where some of the greatest value lies, particularly in business and political journalism.


**Those who can provide this insight, be they domain experts or journalists with the requisite breadth of experience, will always have a bright future.


**The skills required to present information, ideas and data in a visual and highly aesthetic format will shift far closer to the heart of what it is to be a journalist.


Ross also points out the trend towards personalized and local news delivery and suggests that journalists will need to understand how social curation works.  And for me, this is the key to the overlap between the established profession of journalism and the still developing discipline of content curation.


I see clear parallels between the two and believe these are at least partly demonstrated by the points I have chosen to quote and particularly the smaller portions I bolded.  I look forward to clear and growing collaborations between journalists and curators.  We have much to learn from each other.
