We will be doing a live version of Rebooting the News at the Online News Association annual convention in Washington, DC, October, 2010.
The block-by-block community news summit, an event in September that Jay is co-organizing. The research for it includes this list of local news start-ups. We’re going to bring those entrepreneurs together so they can learn from each other.
Jay: two problems with the (old) news system that I have been thinking and talking about a lot lately… 1.) Mixing up context-dependent and context-independent news, as if these were the same kind of news when they are not; and 2.) Mixing up “level one” users of a given news stream (those who are just beginning to master it) and “level four” users of the same news flow, those who have obtained mastery of the issues and problems and people but still want to know what’s new.
Here’s the show; we hope you like it. And do comment if you feel moved.
