The Spinner’s hack on journalism

Doc Searls

The Spinner* is also a hack on journalism, designed like a magic trick to misdirect moral outrage toward The Spinner’s obviously shitty business, and away from the shitty business called adtech, which not only makes The Spinner possible, but pays for most of online journalism as well.

Journalism is outlining

Doc Searls

In Journalism as service: Lessons from Sandy , Jeff Jarvis says, “After Sandy, what journalists provided was mostly articles when what I wanted was specifics that those articles only summarized. ” Journals aren’t going to stop giving us stories, because stories are the main attraction. They are also the frontier, because journals on the whole suck at lists. Back when Sandy was going on, I stayed in Boston and blogged it live.

There are better ways to save journalism

Doc Searls

In a Columbia Journalism Review op-ed , Bernie Sanders presents a plan to save journalism that begins, WALTER CRONKITE ONCE SAID that “journalism is what we need to make democracy work.” He was absolutely right, which is why today’s assault on journalism by Wall Street, billionaire businessmen, Silicon Valley, and Donald Trump presents a crisis—and why we must take concrete action.

Communications, Journalism and Media in the Internet Age

The Open Journal Format

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For some time I have been thinking of launching a journal. The process varies across journals, but in its most typical instantiation , proceeds as follows: a writer submits a manuscript to an editor, who reads it. Then they need to be selected by an editor of a journal to sit on a review board. This was the case, for example, in internet technology. And so it seems a good time now to suggest how I think what I'll call 'the open journal format' should proceed.

Blogging and Personal Feelings

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.

Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What is a Blog? A blog is a personal website that contains content organized like a journal or a diary. Readers catch up with blogs by starting at the top and reading down until they encounter material they’re already read. Though blogs are typically thought of as personal journals, there is no limit to what may be covered in a blog. Blogs are connected to each other to form what is commonly known as the ‘blogosphere’.
