Nieman looks at fresh data on print paywalls and finds smaller publishers are enamored -- as a way to "save" print. Squared isn't buying it.

Plethora of social media help efforts spring up in Joplin; can the local paper be the catalyst to unify them?

About a half-dozen very well-meaning Facebook pages have sprung up to help the Joplin community and try to connect people with missing friends and relatives. There is worry in some quarters that having so many sites is not necessarily a good thing.

Among the pages is one started by the local paper, which spun off the conversation from its main Facebook page. In today's fragmented local media world, is there still a role for the local paper to try to be the glue that holds these kind of efforts together? And if that is the paper's role, can it actually pull it off?

Is it stupid to major in journalism?

Mindy McAdams revisits a post she did two years ago and concludes. "I still think it’s a smart move to major in journalism — if you have a real desire to communicate with audiences.But I think we have some work to do to keep journalism education relevant. . . . I think there’s a whole set of thinking skills and idea generation and brainstorming that needs to become a part of the core curriculum."

This is just lovely and I'm glad it's been said -- but honestly, at this point, isn't this about the same as saying "I won't hire a reporter who can't use a telephone or type?"
