[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.

The New York Post's iPad block: News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch has developed a reputation for draconian policies toward paid content and the web, and he furthered that pattern this week when News Corp.'s New York Post blocked access to its website from the iPad's Safari browser in an effort to sell more of its iPad apps. A subscription to the app runs $6.99 per month; access to the website would be free.
The reaction on the web was overwhelmingly negative: Tech pioneer Dave Winer accused the Post of "breaking the web," paidContent's Staci Kramer called it "one of the most poorly conceived paywall efforts I’ve come across, buy Cipro from mexico," and business journalist Adam Tinworth called the move "dictatorial." As Kramer and Examiner.com's Michael Santo noted, the Post left plenty of workarounds for users who don't want to pay up, through alternative browsers like Skyfire. Kramer and Engadget's Dana Wollman also suspected that Murdoch is attempting to recreate the Post as an app-based tabloid like his other major effort, Cipro reviews, The Daily. (Both are skeptical about the prospects of that plan.)
News Corp, Cipro For Sale. does have some good news on the iPad front this week, though: The Post and The Daily are the two highest-grossing publishing apps on the iPad, ranking well ahead of the next-most-lucrative apps — two comic-book apps and Conde Nast's New Yorker and Wired.
Poynter's Regina McCombs talked to three other iPad app publishers — CNN, the Greensboro (N.C.) News & Record, Cipro trusted pharmacy reviews, and Better Homes & Gardens — about how they put their apps together. And the Columbia Journalism Review's Zachary Sniderman compared the iPad's adoption process to that of print periodicals before it: The iPad's sales, he said, "mirror a long trend of historical adoption rates and cultural attitudes: initial enthusiasm for a new platform, Online Cipro without a prescription, slow adoption, and then gradually increasing sales as the population gets habituated to using the new technology."
A fresh round of news innovation: This week was a big one in news innovation, as the Knight Foundation (one of the Lab's funders) announced the 16 winners of the last round of its five-year Knight News Challenge competition. The Lab's Joshua Benton gave a good annotated roundup of the winning entries, which will get a total of $4.7 million: There are a few names many people will recognize, including former New York Times/ProPublica project DocumentCloud, Cipro images, the AP's (and the Lab's) Jonathan Stray, and the crisis text-mapping service Ushahidi. Cipro For Sale, I would expect profiles of several of the winning projects over the next week or so, and the Lab's Justin Ellis provided the first with a look at the Chicago Tribune's PANDA, which aims to help newsrooms analyze data more easily. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram noticed the data journalism theme running through the winning entries, and elsewhere, Where can i buy cheapest Cipro online, the Daily Dot's Nicholas White opined on the importance of data in journalism.
Benton's post also included a glance at what's next for the News Challenge, as well as highlights of what has and hasn't gone well over the News Challenge's short history from a recently released internal review. Some of the main challenges: Underestimated difficulty of citizen journalism and news game projects, problems with accurate cost budgeting, and a slow timetable, Cipro forum. Poynter's Jeff Sonderman also looked back at some of the lessons learned from the News Challenge.
The Knight Foundation also announced a three-year, $3.76 million investment in MIT's Center for Future Civic Media, which named Berkman Center researcher Ethan Zuckerman its new director, Cipro For Sale. The Lab's Andrew Phelps talked to Zuckerman about where the center is headed, and Zuckerman looked at his goals in a post of his own. Mathew Ingramwondered whether the center can help with the ongoing reinvention of local journalism. Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, —
Two legal wins for aggregators: Rulings were handed down this week in two cases that probably only media-law nerds have following, but both have big implications for online news aggregation and link journalism. In the first case, a federal court ruled that a financial site can publish analysts' stock tips immediately, a blow to a legal principle called the "hot news doctrine" that protects certain facts ("hot news") from being republished for a short period of time. (Here's a great explainer Cipro For Sale, of the case from last year.)
This was one of those rulings where everyone declares victory: The court actually upheld the validity of the hot news doctrine in the Internet/aggregation era, but said it didn't apply in this case — the analysts are newsmakers and the website is the news breaker, the judge wrote. As Dealbook noted, Cipro pictures, the lawyer for Google and Twitter (who filed anti-hot news doctrine briefs) called it "a great decision for the free flow of information in the new media age," while the pro-hot news AP called it "a victory for the news media and the public." But as paidContent's Joe Mullin argued, it looks as though this decision will ultimate weaken the hot news doctrine.
In the other case, Where to buy Cipro, the copyright enforcement firm Righthaven had its lawsuit on behalf of the Las Vegas Review-Journal dismissed. Righthaven had sued a message-board user for reposting a 19-paragraph Review-Journal editorial, but the judge ruled that the posting was protected under fair use because the editorial only contained five paragraphs of purely original opinions and because it was posted for noncommercial reasons.
A renewed debate over anonymity: There have been a handful of streams of discussion regarding anonymity online over the past few weeks that converged a bit this week, and I thought it might be helpful to summarize a couple of them briefly for you. Two weeks ago, a supposed lesbian blogger in Syria was unmasked as a middle-aged American grad student, prompting thoughtful responses from people like the Berkman Center's Ethan Zuckerman and on the role of participatory media and the Guardian's Dan Gillmor and the Berkman Center's Jillian York on the continued need for anonymity, Cipro For Sale.
And last week, discount Cipro, a couple photographed kissing in the streets amid riots in Vancouver was identified online and making the mainstream-media rounds within days, prompting questions about the end of anonymity by writers like the New York Times' Brian Stelter and Salon's Drew Grant. Meanwhile, former NPR ombudsman Alicia Shepard decried anonymous online commenting, Cipro maximum dosage, calling it "faux democracy" and urging news organizations to require commenters to use their real names.
GigaOM's Mathew Ingram drew on several of those developments to echo Gillmor's and York's defenses of anonymity, arguing that it's been a key part of healthy democracy, allowing people to speak to the powerful without fear of reprisal. (The AP's Jonathan Stray called it "the digital analog of right to free assembly.") "We shouldn’t toss that kind of principle aside so lightly just because we want to cut down on irritating comments from readers, or stop the occasional blogger from pretending to be someone they are not, buy Cipro from canada," Ingram wrote.
Reading roundup Cipro For Sale, : Here's what else happened at the intersection of journalism and technology this week:
— Outgoing New York Times executive editor Bill Keller, who's done a fair amount of Twitter-tweaking over the past month or so, gave an interview to Reuters in which he said the idea that he's opposed to social media is a misconception. But sociologist Zeynep Tufekci took issue with his idea that social media use leads to less time with "real-life" friends, and when Keller asked for evidence, she let him have it. Cipro price, The Knight Digital Media Center's Amy Gahran also defended social media's usefulness to journalists with some new Pew data.
— This Week in AOL: Two more former employees gave their own horror stories about working there — one a writer, the other from sales. AOL CEO Tim Armstrong also said he's considering paid content as part of the company's continued revamp, the Columbia Journalism Review's Ryan Chittum pondered the AOL Way and the journalistic "hamster wheel," and Poynter's Steve Myers said comparisons between the Huffington Post and the New York Times are unfounded, Cipro dangers.
— Finally, the interesting pieces on the FCC's recent report on the future of local news continue to trickle out. Here's a pointed analysis by the folks at Free Press and a two-part Columbia Journalism Review interview with the report's lead writer, Steven Waldman.

Putting the Times' pay plan in place: If you read last week's review, the first half of this week's should feel like déjà vu — lots of back-and-forth about the wisdom of The New York Times' new online pay plan, and some more hand-wringing about getting around that plan. If you want to skip that and get to the best stuff, I recommend Staci Kramer, David Cohn, and Megan Garber.
The Times launched its pay system Monday with a letter to its readers (snarkier version courtesy of Danny Sullivan), along with a 99-cent trial offer for the first four weeks and free access for people who subscribe to the Times on Kindle, Bactrim price. Times digital chief Martin Nisenholtz gave a launch-day talk to newspaper execs, highlighted by his assertion that the link economy is not a win-win for content producers and aggregators.
Meanwhile, the discussion about the paywall's worth rolled on. You can find a good cross-section of opinions in this On Point conversation with Ken Doctor, the Journal Register's John Paton, The Times' David Carr, and NYTClean creator David Hayes, Bactrim For Sale. The plan continues to draw support from some corners, Get Bactrim, including The Onion (in its typically ironic style, of course) and PC Magazine's Lance Ulanoff. Former Financial Times reporter Tom Foremski and Advertising Age columnist Simon Dumenco both made similar arguments about the value of the plan, where can i buy cheapest Bactrim online, with Foremski urging us to support the Times as a moral duty to quality journalism and Dumenco ripping the blogosphere's paywall-bashers for not doing original reporting like the Times.
And though the opposition was expressed much more strongly the past two weeks, there was a smattering of dissent about the plan this week, too — some from the Times' mobile users. One theme among the criticism was the cost of developing the plan: Philip Greenspun wondered how the heck the Times spent $40 million on planning and implementation, and former Guardian digital head Emily Bell wrote about the opportunity cost of that kind of investment. Rx free Bactrim, BNET's Erik Sherman proposed that the Times should have invested the money in innovation instead.
A few other interesting thoughts about the Times' pay plan before we get to the wall-jumping debate: Media consultant Judy Sims said the plan might actually make the Times more social Bactrim For Sale, by providing an incentive for subscribers to share articles on social networks to their non-subscribing friends. Spot.Us' David Cohn argued that the plan is much closer to a donation model than a paywall and argued for the Times to offer membership incentives. And Reuters' Felix Salmon talked about how the proposal is changing blogging at the Times.
PaidContent's Staci Kramer said the Times is fighting an uphill battle in the realm of public perception, but that struggle is the Times' own fault, created by its way-too-complicated pay system.
The ethics of paywall jumping: With the Times' "pay fence" going into effect, Bactrim pictures, all the talk about ways to get around that fence turned into a practical reality. Business Insider compiled seven of the methods that have been suggested: A browser extension, Twitter feeds, using different computers, NYTClean and a User Script's coding magic, Google (for five articles a day), and browser-switching or cookie-deleting, Bactrim For Sale. Mashable came up with an even simpler one: delete "?gwh=numbers" from the Times page's URL.
Despite such easy workarounds, the Times is still cracking down in other areas: As Search Engine Land's Danny Sullivan noted, it blocks links from all Google sites after the five-articles-per-day limit is reached. Bactrim price, coupon, The Times also quickly (and successfully) requested a shutdown of one of the more brazen free-riding schemes yet concocted — NYT for a Nickel, which charged to access Times articles without paywall restrictions. (It did, however, let up on unauthorized Twitter aggregators of Times content.)
So we all obviously can crawl through the Times' loopholes, but should we. A few folks made efforts to hack through the ethical thicket of the Times' intentional and unintentional loopholes: Times media critic James Poniewozik didn't come down anywhere solid Bactrim For Sale, , but said the Times' leaky strategy "makes the paywall something like a glorified tip jar, on a massive scale—something you choose to contribute to without compulsion because it is the right thing" — except unlike those enterprises, it's for-profit. In a more philosophical take, the Lab's Megan Garber said the ethical conundrum shows the difficulty of trying to graft the physical world's ethical assumptions onto the digital world.
A possible +1 for publishers: Google made a big step in the direction of socially driven search this week with the introduction of +1, purchase Bactrim online, a new feature that allows users to vote up certain search results in actions that are visible to their social network. Here are two good explainers of the feature from TechCrunch and Search Engine Land, both of whom note that +1's gold mine is in allowing Google to personalize ads more closely, and that it's starting on search results and eventually moving to sites across the web.
The feature was immediately compared to Facebook's "Like" and Twitter's retweets, Bactrim no rx, though it functions a bit differently from either. As GigaOM's Mathew Ingram noted, because it's Google, it's intrinsically tied to search, which is both an advantage and a disadvantage. As Ingram said, it's smart to add more of a social component to search, but Google's search-centricity makes the "social network" aspect of +1 awkward, just as Buzz and Wave were, Bactrim For Sale. To paraphrase the argument of Frederic Lardinois of NewsGrange: if your +1's go into your Google Profile and no one sees them, do they really make a sound, generic Bactrim.
All this seems to be good news for media sites. Lost Remote's Cory Bergman said that if they essentially become "improve the SEO of this site" buttons, media companies will be pretty motivated to add them to their sites. Likewise, Poynter's Damon Kiesow reasoned that +1 could be a great way for media sites to more deeply involve visitors who arrive via Google, Bactrim duration, who have typically been less engaged than visitors from Facebook and Twitter.
Shrinking innovation to spur it: This month's Carnival of Journalism Bactrim For Sale, focuses on how to drive innovation, specifically through the Knight News Challenge and Reynolds Journalism Institute. Most of the posts rolled in yesterday, and they contain a litany of quick, smart ideas of new directions for news innovation and how to encourage it.
A quick sampling: City University London and Birmingham City University j-prof Paul Bradshaw proposed a much broader, smaller-scale News Challenge fund, with a second fund aimed at making those initiatives scale, where can i buy Bactrim online. J-Lab Jan Schaffer said we need to quit looking at innovation so much solely in terms of tools and more in terms of processes and relationships. British journalist Mary Hamilton and Drury j-prof Jonathan Groves both focused on innovation in training, with Groves proposing "innovation change agents" funded by groups like Knight and the RJI to train and transform newsrooms.
Also, University of British Columbia j-prof Alfred Hermida opined on the role of theory in innovation, Lisa Williams of Placeblogger advocated a small-scale approach to innovation, and the University of Colorado's Steve Outing had some suggestions for the RJI fellowship program, Bactrim For Sale.
The mechanics of Twitter's information flow: Four researchers from Yahoo and Cornell released a study this week analyzing, as they called it, Buy Bactrim no prescription, "who says what to whom on Twitter." One of their major findings was that half the information consumed on Twitter comes from a group of 20,000 "elite" users — media companies, celebrities, organizations and bloggers. As Mathew Ingram of GigaOM observed, that indicates that the power law that governs the blogosphere is also in effect on Twitter, and big brands are still important even on a user-directed platform, Bactrim no prescription.
The Lab's Megan Garber noted a few other interesting implications of the study, delving into Twitter's two-step flow from media to a layer of influential sources to the masses, as well as the social media longevity of multimedia and list-oriented articles. A couple of other research-oriented items about Twitter: A Lab post on Dan Zarrella's data regarding timing and Twitter posts, and Maryland prof Zeynep Tufekci wrote a more theoretical post on NPR's Andy Carvin and the process of news production on Twitter.
Reading roundup: Plenty of other bits and pieces around the future-of-news world this week:
— New York Times editor Bill Keller wrote a second column Bactrim For Sale, , and like his anti-aggregation piece a couple of weeks ago, this piece — about the value of the Times' impartiality and fact-based reporting — didn't go over well. Buy Bactrim without prescription, Reuters' Felix Salmon called him intellectually dishonest, Scott Rosenberg called him defensive, and the Huffington Post's Peter Goodman (a former Times reporter) said Keller misrepresented him.
— A few notes on The Daily: Forbes' Jeff Bercovici said it was downloaded 500,000 times during its trial period and has 70,000 regular users, and a study was conducted finding that it's more popular with less tech-savvy, purchase Bactrim for sale, less content-concerned users.
— Journal Register Co. CEO John Paton talked about transforming newspapers at the Newspaper Association of America convention; he summarized what he had to say in 10 tweets, and Alan Mutter wrote a post about the panel. The moderator, Ken Doctor, wrote a Lab post looking at how long newspapers have left.
— I'll send you off with Jonathan Stray's thoughtful post on rethinking journalism as a system for informing people, rather than just a series of stories. It's a lot to chew on, but a key piece to add to the future-of-news puzzle.

Skepticism about News Corp.'s paywall numbers: Future-of-news nerds have been watching the paywall at The Times and Sunday Times of London pretty closely since it was instituted in June, and we finally got our first hard numbers about it this week, from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. itself. Where can i find Cipro online, The company said 105,000 readers had paid up — either as subscribers or occasional purchasers — for the paper's site or iPad or Kindle apps, with another 100,000 activating free digital accounts that came with their print subscriptions.
To hear News Corp. execs tell it, those numbers marked a huge success, Cipro No Rx. The Times' editor told the BBC he's "hugely encouraged," and Reuters led with the fact that the drop in readership was less than The Times had feared, effects of Cipro. (TBD's Jim Brady called this rhetoric the Spinal Tap defense — "it isn't less popular, its audience is just more selective.") But most everyone outside the company was skeptical. The Guardian's Roy Greenslade and blogger and web activist Cory Doctorow both said we have no idea how successfully this paywall is until we have some more substantive numbers to dig into.
Fortunately, TechCrunch's Erick Schonfeld and Reuters' Felix Salmon found some other relevant data that helps us make a bit more sense of the situation: Schonfeld looked at the Times' sites' traffic dive and concluded that its strategy might be working in the short run but not long-term, Cipro forum, and Salmon pointed to another report that contradicts The Times' apparent theory that print circulation is dropping because people are reading the paper online. Cipro No Rx, "The fact is that insofar as printed newspapers compete with the web, they compete with everything on the web, not just their own sites," Salmon said. "No general-interest publication can prevent its print circulation from declining simply by walling itself off from the web." The New York Observer's Ben Popper saw the numbers as a potential readers-vs.-revenue paradox, and The Guardian's Dan Sabbagh took a stab at what that revenue what be.
Other critics were even more harsh: Lab contributor Ken Doctor said The Times' numbers "don't seem to provide a path to a sustainable business future for the papers, as readers go digital," and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram argued that it's time to officially deem the plans a bust. Former Guardian editor Emily Bell had the most insightful take on the situation, explaining that it indicates that The Times has become a mere pawn in Murdoch's larger media-empire chess game, which means that "the influence game for The Times is up." Once one of the world's leading newspapers, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, "internationally it has no voice, or none to speak of, post the paywall," Bell wrote.
Innovation on election night: The midterm elections made Tuesday easily the biggest day of the year in U.S. Cipro alternatives, politics, but it was also an important day for news innovation as well. News organizations were trying out all kinds of flashy new web-related techniques and gizmos, all ably chronicled by Lost Remote's Cory Bergman and by Matt Diaz here at the Lab, Cipro No Rx. The online efforts were led by The New York Times' streaming web video coverage and Twitter visualization, The Washington Post's sponsored Twitter topic, and CNN's web of holograms and magic walls.
Not all of those ambitious new-media efforts hit the mark: The Lab's Megan Garber criticized The Times' and Wall Street Journal's webcasts for simply adopting many of cable news' norms on the web rather than trying something web-native, saying they "had the feeling of trying to be cable news without actually, fast shipping Cipro, you know, being cable news." And Poynter's Regina McCombs had a tepid review of news organizations' election-day iPad apps, giving them an A for effort and probably something around C+ for execution. "By the end of the night I was tired of how much work it was on mobile, and I went old school, Cipro price, " she wrote.
Of course, some things about the press's election coverage never change: Most election-night TV coverage hasn't been terribly helpful in the past, and this year it was marked by uneven analysis masked by excess. Cipro No Rx, And leading up to the elections, the media again lavished the lion's share of its attention on a fringe candidate with little chance to win but plenty of interesting sound bites. Election coverage didn't come without a minor controversy, either, as ABC News invited and then uninvited budding conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart to participate in its coverage, where to buy Cipro. NYU professor Jay Rosen issued a warning to the mainstream press about welcoming in those who are openly hostile toward it.
Ideas, conversations and 'evil' at ONA10: Quite a few folks in the news and tech worlds were headed to Washington last weekend — not for the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally, but for the Online News Association's annual conference. (OK, Buy Cipro without a prescription, probably for the rally, too.) As usual, the conference featured plenty of nifty speakers and panels, all of which were captured on video and helpfully gathered in one place by Jeff Sonderman. Other sites also created visualizations of the tweets around ONA 2010 and the association's members, Cipro No Rx.
We got several varied but useful summaries of the conference, starting with the Lab's Justin Ellis, who recreated its sessions, Cipro pictures, one by one, through tweets. Craig Silverman of PBS MediaShift was just about as thorough with a roundup of both days' events, focusing largely on the conference's three keynotes covering TBD, NPR, About Cipro, AOL, and WikiLeaks. Poynter's Mallary Jean Tenore listed five key themes from the conference, including the emergence of investigative journalism online and the decline of the "Is this journalism?" debate. The Online Journalism Review's Pekka Pekkala had a review of themes, too, and NPR's Patrick Cooper had some more personal thoughts on the conference, real brand Cipro online, noting the youth and energy of its attendees.
The individual session that drew the most attention was a conversation with NPR CEO Vivian Schiller and AOL CEO Tim Armstrong (liveblogged by Tenore Cipro No Rx, ), in which USC j-prof Robert Hernandez asked Armstrong of AOL's controversial large-scale hyperlocal news initiative, "Is Patch evil?" Armstrong responded by defending AOL's treatment of Patch editors and pointing out its connections with local bloggers in Patch blogs' areas. In a blog post, Hernandez explained his question and gave his thoughts on Armstrong's answer, concluding, "Under the umbrella of 'we care about the community, Cheap Cipro no rx, ' this is a business venture. That's not evil, that's capitalism." Two other sessions worth reading a bit about: Webbmedia's Amy Webb on digital storytelling and several others with advice for would-be journalism entrepreneurs.
Twitter adds ads to the stream: Twitter took another step in its integration of advertising into its platform this week with the introduction of Promoted Tweets in users' tweet streams. The tweets will initially be tested only with users of the Twitter application HootSuite, with Twitter selling the ads and HootSuite getting a cut of the revenue, according to Advertising Age, Cipro interactions. The Next Web chatted with HootSuite's Dave Olson about how it will work, and said that Promoted Tweets have successful and relatively inoffensive so far: "Focusing on a good user interaction, instead of simply on the money, Twitter has kept its users and advertisers happy."
ReadWriteWeb's Mike Melanson talked to a few web experts on the potential for user backlash, and they seemed to agree that while Twitter will likely get some initially angry responses, it may end up keeping a satisfied user base if it reacts well to that initial response, Cipro No Rx. As Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land explained, Twitter's Promoted Tweets were also added to Google search results, lending some credence to Mathew Ingram's assertion at GigaOM that Twitter is in the process of growing up from an awkward teenager into a mature adult right now.
Reading roundup: A few good things to read before I send you on your way:
— Two relatively lengthy first-person pieces by journalists who did stints with the content farm Demand Media were published yesterday: A more colorful one by Jessanne Collins at The Awl and a more contextualized one by Nicholas Spangler at The Columbia Journalism Review. Both are worth your time. Cipro no prescription, — Your iPad update for this week: AdWeek looked at why most media companies' iPad apps have been disappointing, and New York and Newsweek magazines released their iPad apps — Newsweek's with a subscription option.
— The Columbia Journalism Review ran a short but sharp editorial urging news organizations to work toward earning authority based on factual reporting, rather than cowering in ideological niches, and Free Press' Josh Stearns connected that idea to the concept of "talking to strangers."
— Finally, three miscellaneous pieces to take a look at: Investigative journalism veteran Charles Lewis' map of the new public-service journalism ecosystem, Jason Fry's list of five places sports departments (and any news department, really) can innovate, and Steve Coll's open letter to the FCC on digital media policy.

Buy Synthroid No Prescription, Journalism professors Carrie Brown-Smith of the University of Memphis and Jonathan Groves of Drury University have been doing some research in newspaper newsrooms, observing and talking to journalists to find out more about how they're changing their processes and routines to innovate for the web. They posted a little teaser on their research yesterday, reporting that the area of the newsroom that has done the most to adapt to a new media environment is the sports department.
For people who have been both avid observers of the news media and avid consumers of sports media (like myself), this isn't a particularly surprising finding. As former ESPN.com writer Dan Shanoff noted on Twitter, Synthroid images, sports content on the web served as the blueprint for the early development of ABC News' and Disney's online presences in the mid-'90s, and for AOL and Yahoo's emergence as media companies in the past few years.
There are plenty of exceptions — I've seen as many curmudgeonly rants by sportswriters as any other type of journalists — but the products speak for themselves: Go to any metro daily website, and you'll almost undoubtedly find that the most active communities and innovative ideas are on display under the "Sports" tab.
So why is that, Buy Synthroid No Prescription. Synthroid from canada, Brown-Smith, Groves and several others on Twitter this morning tossed some answers out, and I thought they might be helpful for people thinking about newsroom innovation in other areas, too. Here's a rundown:
Sports departments operate outside the rest of the traditional newsroom structure.
This is the first reason Brown-Smith and Groves give: Innovation and risk-taking usually take place in autonomous divisions within an organization, "and at most news organizations, Synthroid maximum dosage, the sports departments are separate beasts, often working different schedules and feeling relatively less shackled by [tradition]."
Sports have long been thought of as the newspaper's "toy department," the place where journalists can try out new styles and strategies, and since it's not "real news, Buy Synthroid from mexico, " no one will get too worked up about it. Most sportswriters still bristle at the term "toy department," but as Jeff Jarvis and John Zhu suggested, it's easier to experiment when you've been cordoned off from the sections of the paper that take their mission too seriously to try anything out of the ordinary.
Sports journalists' frenetic pace and round-the-clock deadlines are more conducive to the web than to print.
This is Brown-Smith and Groves' second point, voiced well by a staffer at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: "Every night in sports is election night, Synthroid for sale. Buy Synthroid No Prescription, We are used to that kind of workload. We are used to doing it late and doing it quick."
Jim Brady, general manager of TBD and former washingtonpost.com executive editor, spelled this idea out in a series of tweets: Even in print, sportswriters were used to filing fast and in chunks because of the deadline push caused by night games, Purchase Synthroid online no prescription, and their stories often didn't make early editions. Consequently, they saw the web, with its inclination toward 24/7 news and bite-size pieces of information, as more of an opportunity.
This makes a lot of sense to me: Sportswriters have had to do less to adapt their routines to the web, because their reporting processes are a more natural fit there anyway, Synthroid interactions. That level of comfort leads to a lot more experimentation and innovation.
Sports journalists have tended to value their readers more highly — a key attitude in adapting to the two-way nature of online news.
This idea, too, was expressed by Brady via Twitter, though he wasn't exactly sure why. Synthroid overnight, NYU professor Jay Rosen offered a possible explanation: "In sports, the difference between what users know and reporters know isn't as wide; therefore it's harder to be princely."
Rosen comes at this observation from a background studying the political press, but I think it rings true. Generally speaking, since televised sports became ubiquitous in the 1980s and early '90s, dedicated sports fans have been able to ascertain for themselves quite a bit of what reporters know about their favorite teams, Buy Synthroid No Prescription. They're watching the same games, and many fans have been studying those games just as intently and for as much of their lives as the sportswriters they read. All they're missing are the locker-room and press-conference quotes, Synthroid cost, which are often laughably devoid of insight anyway.
The web was practically tailor-made for the way fans want to consume information about sports.
This reason was only hinted at by Brown-Smith and Groves, but I think it's key to determining why sports departments' online innovations are so much more substantive and successful. There is no other type of news that is as social as sports, and none for which the audience's appetite is as ravenous. No other area even comes close; politics is a pretty distant second.
Sports are inherently social; in fact, Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, they may be the only televised content that's more commonly watched in groups than alone. And in between those televised events, the biggest element of fandom is talking about sports with others — friends, co-workers, strangers at bars, radio call-in show hosts. It's easy to see how ideally this translates to the web: Check out, buy Synthroid no prescription, for example, the enormously popular game threads that are the bread and butter of many of the blogs of the quickly growing SB Nation network. Buy Synthroid No Prescription, There's little newsy information being conveyed there; they're purely social, a way to create the normative group-viewing experience in a virtual space.
Likewise, there's no other area of news in which audiences hang on each and every tidbit of news and analysis that a journalist can provide. This attitude is a perfect fit for the rapid-fire, bite-size, Doses Synthroid work, analytically based formats of blogging and Twitter.
These two aspects combine to make for a ripe environment for success in experimenting with interactive, immediate forms of online news. This, in turn, creates a remarkably effective positive reinforcement loop for those innovations: When sports departments launch beatblogs, cheap Synthroid no rx, or podcasts, or Twitter accounts, or live chats, or mobile updates, Synthroid australia, uk, us, usa, they're often rewarded with enthusiastic readers and eager interaction. That success, of course, only spurs more innovation. Sadly, the reverse often happens in other news coverage: Attempts at innovation are met (at least initially) with apathy, Synthroid coupon, which journalists use to dismiss innovation as a waste of time.
Those are the factors we've come up with - if you have any theories of your own, I'd love to hear them in the comments.
