The media and WikiLeaks' uneasy coexistence: The current iteration of the WikiLeaks story is about to move into its fourth week, and it continues to swallow up most future-of-journalism news in its path. By now, it's branched out into several distinct facets, and we'll briefly track down each of those, but here are the essentials this week: If you want the basics, Cephalexin gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, Gawker has put together a wonderful explainer for you. If you want to dive deep into the minutiae, there's no better way than Dave Winer's wikiriver of relevant news feeds. Other good background info is this Swedish documentary on WikiLeaks, posted here in YouTube form.
The big news development this week was WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's release from British jail on bail Thursday, Buy Cephalexin No Prescription. As blow-by-blow accounts of the legal situation go, Buy Cephalexin without prescription, you can't beat The Guardian's. Meanwhile, the U.S. government is trying to build a conspiracy case against Assange by connecting him more explicitly to Bradley Manning's leak, and Congress heard testimony on the subject Thursday.
— The first WikiLeaks substory is the ongoing discussion about the actions of the legions of web-based "hacktivists," led by Anonymous, making counterattacks on WikiLeaks' behalf, Cephalexin used for. Having gone after several sites last week (including one mistakenly Buy Cephalexin No Prescription, ), some activists began talking in terms of "cyber-war" — though GigaOM's Mathew Ingram cautioned against that type of language from all sides — and were urged on from jail by Assange. NYU professor Gabriella Coleman gave a glimpse into the inner workings of Anonymous, and they also drew plenty of criticism, too, from thinkers like British author Andrew Keen. Media consultant Deanna Zandt offered a thoughtful take on the ethics of cyber-activism.
— The second facet here is the emergence of Openleaks, Is Cephalexin safe, a leaking organization formally launched this week by WikiLeaks defector Daniel Domscheit-Berg as an alternative to Assange's group. As Domscheit-Berg explained to several outlets including Forbes, Openleaks will act as a more neutral conduit to leaks than WikiLeaks, which ended up publishing its leaks, something Openleaks won't do. Wired compared it with WikiLeaks' rejected 2009 Knight News Challenge proposal, in which it would have functioned primarily as an anonymous submission system for leaks to local news organizations, Buy Cephalexin No Prescription. Openleaks won't be the last, either: As The Economist noted, if file-sharing is any guide, Cephalexin coupon, we'll see scores of rivals (or comrades).
— The third story is the reaction of various branches of the traditional media, which have been decidedly mixed. WikiLeaks has gotten some support from several corners of the industry, including the faculty of the venerable Columbia School of Journalism, the press in Assange's native Australia, Cephalexin for sale, and Northeastern j-prof Dan Kennedy and numerous other British and American professors and journalists, both in The Guardian. But it's also been tweaked by others — New York Times editor Bill Keller said that if Assange is a journalist, "he's not the kind of journalist that I am."
Salon columnist Glenn Greenwald ripped what he called the mainstream media's "servile role" to the government in parroting its attitudes toward WikiLeaks, then later argued that the government's prosecution of WikiLeaks would be a prosecution of investigative journalism in general. Buy Cephalexin No Prescription, Likewise, Morris' Steve Yelvington listed five reasons the media hasn't shown outrage about the government's backlash against WikiLeaks, including the point that the segment of the American mainstream media concerned about national issues is a shell of its former self.
— All of this provided plenty of fodder for a couple of conferences on WikiLeaks, Internet freedom, and secrecy, what is Cephalexin. Last weekend, the Personal Democracy Forum held a symposium on the subject — you can watch a replay here, as well as a good summary by GRITtv and additional videos on the state of the Internet and online civil disobedience. Micah Sifry offered a thoughtful take on the event afterwards, saying that longings for a "more responsible" version of WikiLeaks might be naive: It's "far more likely that something far more disruptive to the current order--a distributed and unstoppable system for spreading information--is what is coming next," he wrote. Online buying Cephalexin hcl, And on Thursday, the Lab held its own one-day conference on journalism and secrecy that included keynotes by the AP's Kathleen Carroll and The Times' Bill Keller (who distanced himself from Assange but defended The Times' decision to publish). If you want to go deeper into the conversation at the conference, the #Niemanleaks hashtag on Twitter is a good place to start, Buy Cephalexin No Prescription.
Will the iPad eat into print?: The iPad news this week starts with the University of Missouri's Reynolds Journalism Institute, which released a study that suggests, based on survey data, that iPad news apps may cut into newspaper subscriptions by next year. There's a ton of other interesting data on how iPads are being used and how users are comparing them to print newspapers and newspaper websites, but one statistic — 58% of those who subscribe to a print newspaper and use their iPad for more than an hour a day planned to cancel their print subscription within six months — was what drew the headlines, buy generic Cephalexin. Alan Mutter said publishers have to like the demographics of the iPad's prime users, but have to wonder whether developing print-like iPad apps is worth it.
Several news organizations introduced new iPad apps this week, led by CNN. Poynter's Damon Kiesow talked to CNN Buy Cephalexin No Prescription, about the rationale behind its photo-oriented multitouch design, and MocoNews' Ingrid Lunden looked at why CNN might have made their app free. Steve Safran of Lost Remote liked the app's design and sociability. Also, Order Cephalexin online overnight delivery no prescription, the New York Daily News launched a paid (though cheaper than the New York Post) app, and Harper's added its own as well.
Meanwhile, Flipboard, the inaugural iPad app of the year, launched a new version this week. Forbes' Quentin Hardy talked to Flipboard's CEO about the vision behind the new app, and The Wall Street Journal wrote about innovative iPad news apps in general, cheap Cephalexin. The Washington Post's Justin Ferrell talked to the Lab's Justin Ellis about how to design news apps for the iPad, Buy Cephalexin No Prescription. In iPad advertising, Apple launched its first iAd, which seems to be essentially a fully formed advertisement app. One iPad app that's not coming out this week: Rupert Murdoch's "tablet newspaper" The Daily, whose launch has reportedly been postponed until next year.
Looking ahead to 2011: We're nearing the end of the December, Where can i cheapest Cephalexin online, which means we're about to see the year-end reviews and previews start to roll in. The Lab got them kicked off this week by asking its readers for predictions of what 2011 will bring in the journalism world, then publishing the predictions of some of the smartest future-of-news folks in the room. Buy Cephalexin No Prescription, All of the posts are worth checking out, but there are a few I want to note in particular — The AP's Jonathan Stray on moving beyond content tribalism ("a news product that refuses to provide me with high-quality filtering and curation of the rest of the world’s information will only ever be an endpoint"), NPR's Matt Thompson on instant speech transcription ("the Speakularity"), tech pioneer Dave Winer on adjusting to the new news distribution system ("That’s the question news people never seem to ask. How can we create something that has a market?"), and a couple of paid-content predictions on The New York Times and by Steven Brill (who has skin in the game).
The prediction post that generated the most discussion was NYU professor Clay Shirky's piece on the dismantling of the old-media syndication system. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram expanded on the idea, connecting it explicitly to Google News and the Associated Press, taking Cephalexin, and asking, "In a world where the power to syndicate is available to all, does anyone want what AP is selling?" USC's Pekka Pekkala explained why he sees this as a positive development for journalists and niche content producers.
As if on cue, Thomson Reuters announced the launch of its new American news service, one that seems as though it might combine traditional news syndication with some elements of modern aggregation. Media analyst Ken Doctor gave some more details about the new service and its deal with the Tribune Co., and Gawker's Hamilton Nolan was skeptical of this potential new direction for newswires, Buy Cephalexin No Prescription. Cephalexin natural, —
Reading roundup: A few good pieces before I send you on your way:
— At the London Review of Books, British journalist John Lanchester has written an essay making a case for why and how the newspaper industry needs to charge for news online. Anti-paywall folks aren't going to be crazy about it, but it's far from the stereotypical revanchist "Make 'em pay, just 'cause they should" pro-pay argument: "Make the process as easy as possible, no prescription Cephalexin online. Buy Cephalexin No Prescription, Make it invisible and transparent. Make us register once and once only. Walls are not the way forward, but walls are not the same thing as payment, and without some form of payment, the press will not be here in five years’ time."
— A North Carolina j-prof and Duke grad student came together(!) to urge news organizations to incorporate more of the tenets of citizen journalism. They have a few specific, practical suggestions, too.
— British journalist Adam Westbrook gave his goodbye to mainstream media, making a smart case that the future lies outside its gates.
— Finally, Jonathan Stray, an AP editor and Lab contributor, has a brilliant essay challenging journalists and news organizations to develop a richer, more fully formed idea of what journalism is for. It may be a convicting piece, but it offers an encouraging vision for the future — and the opportunity for reform — too.

[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Purchase Diflucan, on Oct. 8, 2010.]
Another old-media stalwart goes online: This week's biggest story is a lot more interesting for media geeks than for those more on the tech side, but I think it does have some value as a sort of symbolic moment. Howard Kurtz, who's been The Washington Post's media writer for pretty much all of its recent history, jumped this week to The Daily Beast, Buy no prescription Diflucan online, an aggregation and news site run by former magazine star Tina Brown and media mogul Barry Diller. Kurtz will head the site's D.C. bureau and write about media and politics. He's about as traditional/insider Washington media as they come (he also hosts CNN's Reliable Sources), so seeing him move to an online-only operation that has little Beltway presence was surprising to a lot of media watchers.
So why'd he do it, Purchase Diflucan. In the announcement story at The Daily Beast, Kurtz said it was "the challenge of fast-paced online journalism" that drew him in. In interviews with TBD, Yahoo News and The New York Times, where can i find Diflucan online, Kurtz referred to himself as an "online entrepreneur" who hopes to find it easier to innovate at a two-year-old web publication than within a hulking institution like the Post. "If you want to get out there and invent something new, maybe it is better to try to do that at a young place that's still growing," he told TBD.
Kurtz has his critics, and while there are some (like the American Journalism Review's Rem Rieder) who saw this as a benchmark event for web journalism, Diflucan photos, several others didn't see The Daily Beast as the plucky, outsider startup Kurtz made it out to be. Purchase Diflucan, PaidContent's David Kaplan said that with folks like Brown and Diller involved, The Daily Beast has a lot of old media in its blood. (It may be partnered with Newsweek soon.) Salon's Alex Pareene made the point more sharply, saying he was going to work for his "rich friend's cheap-content farm" for a "fat check and a fancy title." As Rachel Sklar told Politico (in a much kinder take), for Kurtz, this is "risk, but padded risk."
Maybe the fact that this move isn't nearly as shockingly risky as it used to be is the main cultural shift we're seeing, argued Poynter's Steve Myers in the most thoughtful piece on this issue, buy Diflucan online cod. Kurtz is following a trail already blazed by innovators who have helped web journalism become financially mature enough to make this decision easy, Myers said. "Kurtz's move isn't risky or edgy; it's well-reasoned and practical -- which says more about the state of online media than it does about his own career path," Myers wrote. For his part, Kurtz said that his departure from the Post doesn't symbolize the death of print, but it does say something about the energy and excitement on the web. Get Diflucan, Of course, people immediately started drawing up lists of who should replace Kurtz at the Post, but the most worthwhile item on that front is the advice for Howard Kurtz's replacement by Clint Hendler of the Columbia Journalism Review. Hendler argued we'd be better off with a media critic than with another studiously balanced media writer, Purchase Diflucan. According to Hendler, that requires "someone who is willing to, as the case warrants, state opinions, poke fun, where can i order Diflucan without prescription, call sides, and make enemies."
A reporter and a newspaper chain's sad scandals: Two media scandals dominated the news about the news this week. First, Rick Sanchez up and got himself fired by CNN last Friday for a radio rant in which he called Jon Stewart a bigot and suggested that Jews run the news media and using it to keep him down. Sanchez apologized a few days later, and The Huffington Post's Chez Pazienza mined the incident for clues of what CNN/Rick Sanchez relations were like behind the scenes. Buy Diflucan from canada, There are a couple of minor angles to this that might interest future-of-news folks: Joe Gandelman at The Moderate Voice used the situation to point out that those in the news media are being targeted more severely by partisans on both sides. (We got better examples of this with the Dave Weigel Purchase Diflucan, , Octavia Nasr and Helen Thomas snafus this summer.) Also, Sanchez was one of the news industry's most popular figures on Twitter, and his account, @RickSanchezCNN, may die. Lost Remote said it's a reminder for journalists to create Twitter accounts in their own names, not just in their employers'.
Second, The New York Times' David Carr detailed a litany of examples of a frat-boy, shock-jock culture that's taken over the Tribune Co. since Sam Zell bought it in 2007. (Gawker and New York gave us punchy summaries of the revelations.) The Tribune is possibly the biggest and clearest example of the newspaper industry's disastrous decline over the past few years, low dose Diflucan, and this article simply adds more fuel to the fire. The Columbia Journalism Review's Ryan Chittum noted that the article also contains the first report of Zell directly intervening in news coverage to advance his own business interests, Purchase Diflucan. Meanwhile, the Tribune is slogging through bankruptcy, as mediation has broken down. Order Diflucan online c.o.d, —
The hyperlocal business model questioned: This week was a relatively slow one on the future-of-news front; most of the remaining stories are roundups of various interesting bits and pieces. I'll try to hit them as succinctly as possible and get you on your way. First, we talked a bit about hyperlocal news last week, and that conversation bled over into this week, as Alan Mutter talked to J-Lab's Jan Schaffer about her fantastic analysis of local news startups. Purchase Diflucan, Mutter quoted Schaffer as saying that community news sites are not a business, then went on to make the point that like many startups, many new news organizations go under within a few years. The money just isn't there, Mutter said, buy cheap Diflucan. (The Wall also has 10 takeaways from Schaffer's study.)
For those in the local news business themselves, the Reynolds Journalism Institute's Joy Mayer provided some helpful tips and anecdotes from West Seattle Blog's Tracy Record, and the Online Journalism Review's Robert Niles put together an online news startup checklist. Meanwhile, the hyperlocal giant du jour, AOL's Patch, Purchase Diflucan, continued its expansion with a launch in Seattle, and dropped hints of a plan to get into newspapers. TBD's Steve Buttry assured local news orgs that they can compete and collaborate with Patch and other competitors at the same time.
The iPad's explosive growth: It's been a little while since we heard too much about the iPad, but we got some interesting pieces about it this week, Purchase Diflucan. CNBC informed us that the iPad has blown past the DVD player as the fastest-adopted non-phone product in U.S. history with 3 million units sold in its first 80 days and 4.5 million per quarter, well more than even the iPhone's 1 million in its first quarter. It's on pace to pass the entire industries of gaming hardware and non-smart cellphones in terms of sales by next year. The NPD Group also released a survey of iPad owners that found that early adopters are using their iPads for an average of 18 hours a week, buy cheap Diflucan no rx, and for a third of them, that number is increasing. Purchase Diflucan, When the iPad first came out, many people saw its users spending that time primarily consuming media, rather than creating it. But in an attempt to refute that idea, Business Insider put together an interesting list of 10 ways people are using the iPad to create content. And marketer Hutch Carpenter looked at the quality of various uses for the iPad and predicted that as Apple and app developers improve the user's experience, it will become a truly disruptive technology. Taking Diflucan, —
More defenses of social media's social activism: Malcolm Gladwell's New Yorker piece questioning Twitter's capability of producing social change drew no shortage of criticism last week, and it continued to come in this week. Harvard scholar David Weinberger made several of the common critiques of the article, focusing on the idea that Gladwell is tearing down a straw man who believes that the web can topple tyrannies by itself. Other takes: Change Observer's Maria Popova argued Gladwell is defining activism too narrowly, and that online communities broaden our scope of empathy, which bridges the gap between awareness and action; The Guardian's Leo Mirani said that social media can quickly spread information from alternative viewpoints we might never see otherwise; and Clay Shirky, the target of much of Gladwell's broadside, seemed kind of amused by Gladwell's whole point, Purchase Diflucan.
The sharpest rebuttal this week (along with Weinberger's) came from Shea Bennett of Twittercism, who argued that change starts small and takes time, even with social media involved, but that doesn't mean it isn't happening. "As we all continue to refine and improve our online social communities, low dose Diflucan, this shift in power away from a privileged few to an increasingly organised collective that can be called at a moment’s notice [presents] a real threat to the status quo," he wrote.
Getting started with data journalism: A few cool resources on data journalism were published this week: British j-prof Paul Bradshaw wrote an invaluable guide to data journalism at The Guardian, taking you through everything from data collection to sorting to contextualizing to visualization. To Bradshaw, the craft comes down to four things: Finding data, Buy Diflucan no prescription, interrogating it, visualizing it, and mashing it. ReadWriteCloud's Alex Williams followed that post up with two posts making the case for data journalism and giving an overview of five data visualization tools. Purchase Diflucan, And if you needed some inspiration, PBS' MediaShift highlighted six incredible data visualization projects.
Reading roundup: A few more nifty things to check out this weekend:
— The bookmarking app Instapaper has become pretty popular with web/media geeks, and its founder, Marco Arment, just rolled out a paid subscription service. The Lab's Joshua Benton examined what this plan might mean for future web paywalls.
— Several mobile journalism tidbits: TBD's Steve Buttry made a case for the urgency of developing a mobile journalism plan in newsrooms, The Guardian reported on a survey looking at mobile device use and newspaper/magazine readership, and the Ryerson Review of Journalism gave an overview of Canadian news orgs' forays into mobile news.
— Northwestern j-prof Pablo Boczkowski gave a fascinating interview to the Lab's C.W. Anderson on conformity in online news, Purchase Diflucan. Must-reading for news nerds.
— Netflix founder Reed Hastings gave a talk that Ken Doctor turned into six good lessons for news organizations.
— The real hot topic of the past week in the news/tech world was not any particular social network, but The Social Network, the movie about Facebook's founding released last weekend. I couldn't bring myself to dedicate a section of this week's review to a movie, but the Lab's Megan Garber did find a way to relate it to the future of news. Enjoy.
