[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Order Tramadol, on Dec. 2, 2011.]
We've got two weeks to cover with this review, but since one of those weeks was dominated for many us by football, family and post-turkey stupor, Tramadol steet value, it's a relatively quiet period to catch up on. Here's what you might have missed:
Citizen journalism and the Occupy movement: The furor surrounding the Occupy Wall Street protests hit another peak before Thanksgiving, thanks in large part to the police officer who pepper-sprayed seated UC-Davis students at close range. The episode was captured in numerous videos and photos by surrounding students that quickly achieved meme status, and the Lab's Megan Garber argued that the Pepper Spraying Cop meme was crucial in pushing the movement beyond its theme of economic justice and in demanding emotional, empathetic participation by viewers, Tramadol reviews.
Zack Whittaker of ZDNet held up the incident as an example of citizen journalism holding authority to account and exposing spin for what it is, and GigaOM's Janko Roettgers argued that while the Arab Spring relied on this type of coverage because many kinds of professional reporting were outlawed, it's being used in the U.S. to supplement the limited resources of the professional press, Order Tramadol. NYU j-prof Jay Rosen highlighted the work of one of those Occupy citizen reporters, Buy Tramadol no prescription, offering some fine advice to young would-be journalists in the process: The most important thing is to put yourself in a "journalistic situation," which is "when a live community is depending on you for regular reports about some unfolding thing that clearly matters to them."
Meanwhile, the concern over police's heavy-handed tactics toward reporters—including arrests and removal from the scenes of their Occupy crackdowns—has continued. Numerous New York news organizations called for an investigation into the New York Police Department's brutishness toward journalists, and New York Times columnist Michael Powell made a sharp rebuttal of NYPD's "but they didn't have press passes!" defense. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram gave some thoughts about how these situations have changed now that journalists are everywhere, purchase Tramadol for sale, and Free Press' Josh Stearns gave a great example of journalistic curation in his explanation of how he's reported on journalist arrests nationwide.
The Times has a few miscellaneous angles covered as well: Brian Stelter looked at Occupy coverage from within and outside the mainstream, and David Carr wondered what's next for Occupy, particularly in terms of its media narrative.
SOPA as innovation killer: On the heels of last month's congressional hearing Order Tramadol, on the U.S.' ominous Stop Online Piracy Act, alarm about the bill's potential to dramatically curtail online speech continues to echo around the web, including from the editorial boards of both the New York Times and Los Angeles Times. Tramadol coupon, Techdirt's Mike Masnick, who has been the go-to writer on SOPA, billed one of his posts arguing against the bill as the definitive argument, and he's probably right. Masnick's argument had a few parts: 1) Enforcement is the wrong way to prevent copyright infringement; 2) Even if it was the right way, SOPA is an ineffective enforcement strategy; and 3) Along the way, Tramadol schedule, SOPA would do significant collateral damage to the economy and innovation. To the first point, Masnick argued that the problem behind copyright infringement is one of a broken business model, the symptom of an industry that refuses to adjust to meet changing audience demands. "The best way, Low dose Tramadol, by far, to decrease infringement is to offer awesome new services that are convenient and useful," he wrote.
Alex Howard of O'Reilly Media provided another long post detailing the dangers of SOPA, particularly the chilling effect it will have on innovation. He also explained to the Knight Digital Media Center's Amy Gahran how the bill could hinder innovation in news organizations, especially small ones, Order Tramadol. In a carefully balanced piece, real brand Tramadol online, the Economist touched on some of the same business model issues behind SOPA that Masnick did, while Ars Technica's Timothy Lee argued that this internationally oriented bill would have damaging effects on the U.S.' reputation abroad in technological areas.
Frictionless sharing's pros and cons: Two months after Facebook introduced a new set of social apps that largely centered on automatic sharing, the company announced some of the early stats from news orgs' new apps. Where can i find Tramadol online, All the news Facebook reported is, of course, good news, but Poynter's Jeff Sonderman went a bit deeper into the apps to pull out several lessons for news orgs. Among them, he noted that publishers are finding success both within the walls of Facebook and on their own sites using the social graph, Tramadol mg. The organizations themselves approve Order Tramadol, , too: The Guardian said it's had great success reaching younger audiences through the app, and the Independent said it's given fresh attention to stories at least a decade old.
Facebook's big changes introduced this fall haven't come without their discontents, though. CNET's Molly Wood argued that Facebook's new "frictionless sharing" through automatically sharing apps like the ones developed by news orgs is actually increasing barriers to sharing, at the same time that it's turning sharing passive. "Frictionless sharing via Open Graph recasts Facebook's basic purpose, Tramadol street price, making it more about recommending and archiving than about sharing and communicating."
Tech entrepreneur Anil Dash chimed in, noting that Facebook is putting up additional barriers even to websites that are using its commenting systems. And ReadWriteWeb's Marshall Kirkpatrick argued that with its new sharing functions making indiscriminate sharing the default, Facebook is starting to resemble malware.
In other Facebook-related news, a study was published that found that the classic "six degrees of separation" has been reduced to 4.74 degrees between any random users across the world on Facebook, rx free Tramadol. As a New York Times article on the study noted, this raises questions of whether Facebook "friends" actually correspond to real-life relationships, though some scholars defended the idea by noting that these "weak ties" have been shown to be quite important for several functions, including spreading news, Order Tramadol. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram went into some more detail on the possible effects of these weak ties that are amplified by Facebook.
Reading roundup: Several smaller stories over the past two weeks. Here they are, in short form:
— WikiLeaks released a new set of documents this week — the first of a database of documents from the surveillance industry, Buy cheap Tramadol, but it's also delayed the launch of its new online document submission system. Julian Assange ripped news editors for being too subservient to the political powers that be, and the Electronic Freedom Foundation examined WikiLeaks' effects on several global revolutions, as well as the future of the U.S.' First Amendment. Order Tramadol, — At a time when almost everyone in finance is running away screaming from newspapers, billionaire Warren Buffett announced surprising plans to buy his hometown newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald. Forbes' Jeff Bercovici saw the move as a vote of confidence in the financial viability of newspapers, while former World-Herald journalist Steve Buttry said it's about personal attachment, Tramadol duration, not confidence in the newspaper business. Jim Romenesko noted that the World-Herald's employee-owned model was struggling, which few younger employees buying in.
— After at least 10 days of testimony into News Corp.'s phone hacking case, Tramadol gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, the Guardian has a good, quick summary of what we've found out so far. The company's stock remains surprisingly hot, even if its public image is plummeting: NYU's Jay Rosen wrote an Australia-centric argument that News Corp. has an incontrovertibly corrupt culture, Order Tramadol.
— A couple of (hopefully) final notes about Jim Romenesko's acrimonious departure from Poynter: Romenesko gave his account of the episode, and the Lab's Joshua Benton wrote a fantastic post comparing Romenesko's aggregation practices with the tech world's dichotomy between specs and user experience. Read it, if you haven't already.
— In a perceptive post, 10,000 Words' Lauren Rabaino traced the evolution of news stories' development online, and argued for a more wiki-style story format.
— I'll leave you with a sharp big-picture piece by the Associated Press' Jonathan Stray, who attempted to define what he called the "digital public sphere" and outlined what we should expect it to do. It's a wonderful starting point (or rebooting point) for thinking about what we're all trying to do here with the future of journalism and information online.

Retin A Dosage, [This review was originally posted on Sept. 30, 2011, at the Nieman Journalism Lab.]
A heavyweight enters the tablet ring: Amazon became the latest company to jump into the tablet market this week, unveiling the Kindle Fire, a $199 tablet that will run on Google's Android system. It's a 7" touch-screen tablet that's essentially a knockoff of the BlackBerry Playbook — much smaller and cheaper than Apple's iPad. Online buying Retin A hcl, Amazon also revealed three new Kindle models ranging from $79 to $149, two of them touch-screen, as well as a new Kindle Fire-only web browser, Silk (more on that at the LA Times).
The two most comprehensive early looks at the Fire came from Wired's Steven Levy and Bloomberg's Brad Stone. Levy looked more at the device itself, describing it as a way for Amazon to spotlight its non-book media library and saying its biggest challenge is to Netflix. Stone looked more at the corporate strategy behind the Fire, noting that it "funnels users into Amazon’s meticulously constructed world of content, commerce, and cloud computing." (Sounds like a certain other tablet we know.)
By the end of launch day, several tech sites like TechCrunch and ZDNet had already declared the Fire the winner of the hypercompetitive Android tablet market, and Ad Age said it would soon have tablet consumption taking off, Retin A Dosage. The bigger question, then, Retin A from mexico, was whether the Fire would present the first real threat to Apple's iPad. The Atlantic's Alexis Madrigal summed up the Fire's challenge to the iPad — smaller, cheaper, and the first media experience as thoroughly integrated as Apple's App Store. As the Atlantic's Alesh Houdek put it, the Fire may do most everything tablet owners really want, Canada, mexico, india, only for a lot less than the iPad.
But ReadWriteWeb's John Paul Titlow said the Fire can't match up to the iPad, and the Guardian's Dan Gillmor and paidContent's Tom Krazit both said it's not even directly competing with the iPad — it's in a more utilitarian market, where the iPad is more about luxury. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM argued Retin A Dosage, that to content producers, Amazon and Apple are going to look very similar: They both see their devices as ways to sell their own content, which puts them in competition with the content providers themselves.
The Fire also launched with a newsstand, with big magazine publishers Conde Nast, Hearst, and Meredith among the first to sign deals with Amazon, Retin A wiki, under similar terms to Apple's 30% cut of revenue. (News Corp. also signed a deal to put Fox TV shows on the Fire.) The New York Observer's Emily Witt noted that the Fire could be the mobile-content Apple competitor publishers have been looking for, and the Lab's Martin Langeveld said the Fire will present a fresh disruption for content providers, furthering the growth of direct-to-consumer marketing and eliminating the need for third-party advertising. Poynter's Jeff Sonderman posed several questions journalists should be asking about the Fire, Buy Retin A from mexico, looking at things like paid content, customer data, and app development.
Objections to 'frictionless sharing': Reactions continued to pour in about Facebook's latest overhaul, announced late last week, Retin A Dosage. Many of those concerns centered around the same theme: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's brave new world of ubiquitous, "frictionless" sharing. The New York Times' Somini Sengupta and the LA Times' Jessica Guynn gave us a picture of what this world might look like, and Slate's Farhad Manjoo explained why sharing should still be a choice.
Needless to say, low dose Retin A, this brought up another round of complaints about privacy on Facebook: Tech pioneer Dave Winer said Facebook has crossed the privacy Rubicon by seeking out information about you to post to others, rather than just using information you've chosen to share. Entrepreneur Nik Cubrilovic pointed out that Facebook can track every page you visit even when you're logged out. Jeff Sonderman of Poynter argued Retin A Dosage, that this type of involuntary sharing should be a concern for every news organization that works with Facebook, and former New York Times developer Michael Donohoe said the Times refused to implement that kind of sharing via Facebook. There was one (non-Facebook) voice countering that the passive sharing isn't that big of a deal: Forbes' Jeff Bercovici.
A couple of deeper thoughts on the issue: The Atlantic's Alexis Madrigal wrote on Facebook as "the Meaning Machine," and media prof Mark Deuze argued that living our lives inside of a mediated environment (like Facebook encourages to) can actually help us to see ourselves as deeply connected to others, Retin A maximum dosage, if we're willing to let go of our self-absorption.
As I touched on a bit earlier, there's also the question of what news organizations should do with Facebook: Gawker's Ryan Tate explained why many media companies are so eager to be part of Facebook's plans (huge audiences, huge amounts of data), and Facebook's Vadim Lavrusik explained at the Lab and at the Online News Association conference how journalists can take advantage of these changes. But Jeff Sonderman was a bit more skeptical, urging news organizations to weigh the costs as well as the benefits.
Finally, these changes probably aren't good news for Google and its own network Google+, as Facebook begins collecting loads of valuable personal data that Google can't touch, Mathew Ingram explained, Retin A Dosage. Twitter does its own thing (real-time news) too well to be too worried, Retin A natural, Ingram said, but the New York Times' Nick Bilton wrote that Twitter isn't user-friendly enough to be for everyone, as Facebook is.
Media trust and the new local news: The Pew Research Center released two surveys over the past week or so: The first was the latest in a regular series of looks at the American public's views of the press, and results weren't pretty. The press hit record lows in the public's mind in terms of fairness, Purchase Retin A, accuracy, bias, morality, professionalism, and impact on democracy. (Poynter has a good, quick summary.)
Reuters' Jack Shafer noted that many of the poll respondents get most of their news from TV, which he said isn't a particularly substantive media diet. "The media assessments of the TV-favoring Pew respondents are about as valuable as the restaurant advice of that guy who has eaten 25, Retin A dose,000 Big Macs," he wrote. One other nugget: j-prof Alfred Hermida pointed out Retin A Dosage, that many social media say they get the same news there as on traditional news.
The second study examined the platforms on which people get their local news. There were a few different takeaways from this one: The New York Times focused on the fact that a broad range of platforms have joined TV as predominant local news sources, while the LA Times and Poynter's Rick Edmonds centered on the paradox that many people were very dependent on their local newspaper but still wouldn't care much if it were gone.
O'Reilly Radar's Alex Howard had a fine analysis of the study, using it as a jumping-off point for a piece on the Internet as the future of local news. Other notes from the data: Broadcasting & Cable looked at the areas where local TV did well, Poynter's Julie Moos noticed that many people follow local news even when nothing big is going on, and paidContent focused on the role of mobile media in local news consumption.
More over-aggregation accusations: The business news site Business Insider announced some happy news late last week — it had recently raised $7 million in funding, Retin A Dosage. But that announcement prompted a wave of criticism about the ethics of their aggregation efforts. Reuters' Ryan McCarthy laid out the basic accusation: Business Insider, kjøpe Retin A på nett, köpa Retin A online, he said, routinely lifts large chunks of stories from other outlets while only providing scant attribution or links. Others, like former Business Insider employee Ben Popper of BetaBeat, echoed the complaint. So did Instapaper founder Marco Arment, Discount Retin A, who noted how little traffic he gets from Business Insider republishing his stories.
Business Insider's Henry Blodget responded Retin A Dosage, twice to Arment, the second time in a massively long, detailed post essentially blaming the aggregation problems on some weird content management system glitches. Based on that post, Reuters' Felix Salmon said Business Insider still falls on the wrong side of "over-aggregation," drawing a distinction between human-edited and automatically driven aggregation pages.
Reading roundup: Other stuff to keep an eye on this week:
— Google launched Google News Standout, which allows news organizations to flag their top work. The Lab's Megan Garber examined the way it rewards generosity, and Wired's Tim Carmody looked at the increasing integration between Google News and Google+. Retin A without a prescription, — This Week in Patch: Patch's local site editors are reportedly being asked to drum up sales leads, and the Batavian's Howard Owens said if you're going to work that hard on local news, you might as well start your own site. Patch President Warren Webster pushed backagainst the criticism.
— The Financial Times said its web-based app has been a higher seller than the Apple App Store version, and ReadWriteWeb called it abig early victory for HTML5-based app developers in their battle against Apple.
— An update on News Corp.'s daily tablet publication, The Daily: It has about 120,000 weekly readers, well below Rupert Murdoch's targets for it.
— Finally, a trio of super helpful/valuable posts for journalists: J-prof Paul Bradshaw wrote on what should make up journalists' network infrastructure online, the Association of Alternative Newsmedia's Jon Whiten gave a guide to making longform writing work online, and Poynter's Jeff Sonderman urged news organizations to start building apps that solve problems.

Order Lipitor, [This review was originally posted on Sept. 23, 2011, at the Nieman Journalism Lab.]
Facebook ramps its sharing up even further: We had been hearing all week about a big announcement Facebook would be making this Thursday at its annual conference — about how it would mark the social network's rebirth and leave the competition in the dust. So here's what we got (in a handy roundup from Gizmodo): A Twitter-like mini-feed called Ticker (meant to make the News Feed look more like "your own personal newspaper"), apps on Facebook's Open Graph, sharing music and games through integration with services like the music player Spotify, No prescription Lipitor online, and Timeline, essentially a one-page Facebook life story.
It's pretty clear what Facebook's goal is with all of this: Put charitably, as Wired's Mike Isaac did, it's "allowing for the Facebook page to be a sort of one-stop shop, scooping up all of your activities and displaying them in one grand, blue and white frame." Put more skeptically, as the New Yorker's Nicholas Thompson did, is Lipitor addictive, Facebook wants to eat up a large chunk of the Internet, which has some real consequences: "The more our online lives take place on Facebook, the more we depend on the choices of the people who run the company—what they think about privacy, how they think we should be able to organize our friends, what they tell advertisers (and governments) about what we do and what we buy."
Tom Foremski of Silicon Valley Watcher made the point a different way, arguing that Facebook is trying to combat the natural slowdown in how much we're willing to share online by making it more frictionless and ubiquitous. Lipitor alternatives, Reactions were similar in displaying two sides of the same coin: The ability to pull together a lot of old social information into a single Timeline was either "something a lot of users wanted without much of a voice asking for it" (ZDNet's Rachel King) or a fix to "a problem absolutely no one was clamoring about" (Gawker's Adrian Chen). We'll get more of a sense of which side is more accurate over the next several months, Order Lipitor.
Facebook meets news apps: Another one of the changes announced by Facebook on Thursday was the addition of several new Facebook-based news apps, the first of which was the Wall Street Journal's WSJ Social, unveiled on Tuesday. (Others, like the Washington Post's and Yahoo's, were announced on Thursday.) As the Lab's Megan Garber explained, the app allows each user to edit their own stream of Journal material, is Lipitor safe, and to follow and rank others based on their editing.
As Forbes' Jeff Bercovici pointed out, the app seems to serve both the Journal's and Facebook's interests quite nicely: It keeps people's news consumption and interaction within Facebook, but allows the Journal to sell its own ads within the app and keep the money. (Facebook gets everything for the ads outside the app.)
There were questions about the app — Adweek's Dylan Byers wondered how fond people would be of an app that curates content from only one source, and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram questioned how well the socially oriented app would work with a hard paywall, Herbal Lipitor, and more generally, whether it's wise for news organizations to leave so much of their user interaction inside Facebook.
AOL's struggles and the future of online content: The AOL/TechCrunch saga Order Lipitor, seems to be (mercifully) winding down this week — the last real drama took place late last week, when one TechCrunch writer, Paul Carr, quit with a scorched-earth post directed at new editor Erick Schonfeld, and Schonfeld disputed his claims. But the bad news continues to roll in for AOL: The sales director for its hyperlocal news project, Patch, left — the second top AOL ad exec to bolt in the past month. Business Insider reported that AOL may lose $30 million on Patch this year. And AOL's prospects as a content-based company in general don't look rosy, as paidContent's Robert Andrews pointed out, online Lipitor without a prescription, looking at the declining revenues for AOL Europe once it dropped Internet access from its business model.
AOL execs remain positive in the face of all the bad news: Arianna Huffington said her Huffington Post's merger with AOL has been a boon for both HuffPo and Patch, thanks to the new synergies between the two operations. On the advertising side, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong said he hopes to catch Microsoft and Google in online display ads, a tall task, Order Lipitor.
Outside the company, of course, skeptics still abound. Where can i find Lipitor online, Bloomberg Businessweek's Peter Burrows declared AOL and its fellow web portal Yahoo dead companies walking, saying they "have tried to live by Old Media rules while masquerading as New Media powerhouses." And at Adweek, Michael Wolff pointed to AOL and Yahoo's struggles as evidence that online content can't sustain a business model. The only content that can still do that, he said, is TV or video: "What still works, what advertisers and audiences still seek, is superexpensive content."
Netflix's big split: It wasn't related to journalism per se, Lipitor pictures, but the big story at the intersection of media and tech this week was the announcement of Netflix's split into two businesses — one for streaming video online, and a new one, Qwikster, to continue its DVD-by-mail service. The change was welcomed by approximately no one: Not users or investors, as the New York Times reported, Buy generic Lipitor, not analysts like Business Insider's Henry Blodget (who said it's bad for customers) and paidContent's Robert Andrews (who said it's bad for business), and not the Oatmeal's Matthew Inman, who summed up the head-scratching nature of the move as well as anyone. Order Lipitor, Of course, Netflix had to have a reason for doing this, and there were several popular guesses, rounded up well by Tim Carmody of Wired. As Carmody explained, there are two main theories: 1) Separating DVDs and streaming makes it easier and cheaper for Netflix to negotiate rights with Hollywood (best articulated by venture capitalist Bill Gurley), and 2) Netflix wants to let its DVD business die in peace, without taking streaming down with it (argued in two posts by tech writer Dan Frommer). Along the lines of the latter theory, rx free Lipitor, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram likened Netflix's situation to the news business and wondered who would be the first newspaper company to spin off its print product from its digital side.
The News Corp. scandal and a press freedom threat: It's been a couple of months since News Corp.'s phone-hacking scandal was making big headlines, but the problems stemming from it continue to spread week by week. Deadline New York's David Lieberman looked at some of the financial signs indicating that the fallout may not be isolated to News Corp.'s British newspaper division, Order Lipitor. This week, a couple of aspects of the scandal heated up as another wound down: News Corp. Lipitor over the counter, is expected to settle its highest-profile hacking case (with the family of a murdered 12-year-old girl) for $4.7 million, while the U.S. Justice Department reportedly began asking the company for information in its investigation into bribery charges, and new allegations of hacking into a former government official's voicemail emerged.
Meanwhile, apart from News Corp., the story briefly sparked a press freedom fight when Scotland Yard invoked an espionage law to threaten the Guardian to give up its anonymous sources on one of the hacking cases. Order Lipitor, Journalists across Britain, including some from competitors like the Daily Mail, rose up to defend the Guardian, and within a few days, police dropped their threat. The backlash was strong enough that members of Parliament will question one of Scotland Yard's top officials over the plan, about Lipitor.
Reading roundup: Tons of other little things going on this week. Here's a quick tour:
— Some interesting media fallout from WikiLeaks' recent diplomatic cable release: Al Jazeera's news director resigned after the cables showed that he had modified the network's Iraq war coverage based on pressure from the U.S. This, of course, raised questions about Al Jazeera's independence and credibility. Elsewhere, British journalism thinker Charlie Beckett talked about what WikiLeaks can tell us about where news is headed, Order Lipitor. Buy Lipitor without a prescription, — Though its changes were trumped by Facebook, Google+ unveiled several new features and announced that it's open to everyone. J-prof Dan Reimold declared the new social network dead, but Wired's Tim Carmody explained how Google+'s changes are meant to change that.
— The Washington Post's Monica Hesse wrote a thought-provoking piece on journalists' tendency to obsess with things happening on social networks, leading to insights that ... aren't that insightful. If you're interested in using social media in a way that's actually worthwhile, fast shipping Lipitor, Poynter's Mallary Jean Tenore has a good guide to ways journalists can use Twitter before, during, and after reporting a story.
— At Silicon Valley Watcher, Matthew Buckland did a fascinating Q&A with Wired editor Chris Anderson — the first half on the decline of the open web, and the second on what journalism is now. Lipitor steet value, — This week's most interesting piece of media-related research comes from NYU's Tim Libert, who looked at thousands of comments about the online hacking group LulzSec, finding that the discourse indicated that the group is "in the position of villain rather than the champion of the people’s rights, as they would presumably like to be seen."
— Finally, the AP's Jonathan Stray wrote a stirring piece on what it would look like if we merged journalism with "maker culture," concluding, "This is a theory of civic participation based on empowering the people who like to get their hands dirty tinkering with the future. Maybe that’s every bit as important as informing voters or getting politicians fired.".
