No one wants to pay for news. But how do we foster journalism that makes a difference?

No one wants to pay for news. But how do we foster journalism that makes a difference? | Online News Squared | Scoop.it
Kathy Kiely says that issues facing digital publishers aren't just about who will pay. It's also about who is going to pay attention. "As publications ask readers to pay for more of the actual cost of producing a professional news report (something subscribers to this publication already do), news consumers have to ask themselves what kind of reporting they are willing to support—with their dollars and their eyeballs."

"[M]y Twitter feed is a personalised wire service, except, unlike the traditional wires, I have to interact with it… my followers have become an extra tipping service.

Why a hyper-personalized Web is bad for you

Why a hyper-personalized Web is bad for you | Online News Squared | Scoop.it
No two people's Web searches, even on the same topics, return the same results. That's because search engines and other sites are basing what they send back on our previous searches, the sites we visit, ads we click on, preferences we indicate, and much more. . . .But while the results are no doubt geared to what we're most interested in, they come at a price--in terms of lost privacy, more ads, and even being followed by certain types of ads no matter where we go online.

Rick Reilly Urges Journalism Grads Not To Write For Free. Good Luck With That. | The Big Lead

Look, the journalism boats have already sunk. They were sinking when newspapers and magazines spent nearly a decade trying to ride out rather than adapt to this Internet fad. They were sinking when said outlets decided to pay columnists ridonkulous money in perpetuity. They were sinking when snotty college kids took what had traditionally been a trade and tried to stretch it into an art form, a profession and an academic discipline.

The current climate, for the 99.9 percent of writers who aren’t Rick Reilly, resembles Waterworld. We’re sifting through the wreckage, constructing crude rafts and, hopefully, converting our own urine into potable water.
