Reflections on Ten Years of Blogging

Journalism and Net Nativity

Doc Searls

I don’t go to TV for Journalism any more, even though I’m sure there’s plenty left: needles scattered thorugh a haystack of channels and program schedules that have become so hard to navigate on satellite and cable systems that it’s just not worth the bother. Newsweek’s Journalism of Fourth-and-Long. The Wall Street Journal ’s especially. So can the blogging heads they have talking as well. Journals today have more sources than ever.

e-Media and e-Journalism in the Internet Age

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Responsible journalism, especially CNN, came to the rescue. I hope that Shirley Sherrod’s story becomes a major case study in communications and journalism schools across the country. As I was trying to think through the key lessons in this case, I came across this blog - What journalism students can learn from Shirley Sherrod, JournoList by Matt Vasilogambros , a journalism student at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Blogging and Personal Feelings

What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion.

My blog was me.

NOTE: Live-blogging. I think that’s true, but there’s work to be done to recreate the best values of journalism all over again. Simon: Journalism has to make the case for why it’s its own ism. There are left and right invesetigative journalism sites. Even if it’s celebrity culture, the act of going deeper is instructive to some percent of that group.

The Evolution of My Complex Relationship with Blogging

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From time to time, I like to reflect on my feelings about blogging, and then write about them in an entry in my blog. I have not done so in a while, and it has now been just about six years since I started this blog, so I thought that it would be a good time to return to the subject. I started blogging at the urging of colleagues at IBM. For several years my friend and colleague John Patrick had been urging me to start a blog. I write this blog.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In academia, the CVs will tend to be much longer because they include a complete list of journal articles, conference papers, books and other publications.

I wasn't sure what to expect when colleagues encouraged me to start blogging as part of IBM’s blogging initiative launched in May of 2005.

Blogging at this Particular Point in My Life

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Blogging has continued to play a central role in my life since I started this blog in May of 2005. Given its role in both my work and my life, every so often I like to focus an entry on blogging itself. When I first started blogging, it was almost a giddy experience. IBM was then launching an initiative aimed at encouraging employees to blog - both internal blogs to be shared only with other employees, and external ones aimed at participating the nascent blogosphere.
