"Genuine innovation requires a fundamental shift in how journalists think about their role in a changed world. To begin with, they need to get used to being ‘curators’; sorting news from the noise on the social web using smart new tools and good old fashioned reporting skills.

"* Discovery: How do we find valuable social media content?
"* Verification: How do we make sure we can trust it?
"* Delivery: How do we turn that content into stories for a changed audience?"
