Rebooting the News #84

In Podcast on February 28, 2011 by Jay Rosen

Tweeting while watching the Academy Awards. Connecting up and across at the same time. An example of Audience Atomization Overcome.

Dave and Jay discuss the minimal blogging tool, along with the rebooting of RSS, the effort to get beyond the corporate blogging silos and why everyone needs to be able to run his or her own server.

Good question from Nieman Lab. What does it look like for a quality news organization to focus on making journalism that is more (inherently) sharable?

An idea for election coverage 2012. A coalition of bloggers, journalists, J-schools and news organizations who leave the horse race to the savvy and take a citizen’s agenda approach.

Andy Carvin was innovating live on Twitter while curating coverage of the uprisings in the Middle East.

Here’s the program; we hope you like it.

  2. Dave and Jay,

    As always, a thought-provoking podcast!

    One comment: Dave, saying you’re going to quit twitter when you’re still pushing out to twitter via your new tool (plus the excellent TwitterFeed) is kind of like saying rss is dead because people aren’t aware of it, even though they are still using it, but not necessarily through traditional feed-readers. 😉

    By which I mean that in both cases the speakers are using words in a way that not only can be misunderstood, but are actually likely to, and as far as I can tell that’s exactly why you use those words!


  3. The Minimal Blogging Tool looks and sounds amazing. How can I join the community using it today?
