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.

[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Buy Tramadol No Prescription, on Nov. 4, 2011.]
Should we rethink online paywalls?: It may not be grabbing as many headlines as it was a year ago, but the paid-content train keeps rollin' along, with two more newspapers jumping on board this week: Britain's The Independent is launching a metered paywall for readers outside the U.K. (powered by the Press+ system formerly of Journalism Online), and the Minneapolis Star Tribune is launching a metered model similar to that of the New York Times — 20 free page views a month, Cheap Tramadol no rx, after which the paywall kicks in. Print subscribers will have unlimited access, and the Strib estimates that it'll eventually get $3 million to $4 million in annual revenue from the plan.
On another paywall front, the Lab's Justin Ellis reported that Google, which has been working with publishers on paid content online for a while, has been quietly experimenting with a survey-as-paywall, in which visitors are asked to answer a survey question in order to gain access to the site, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal.
This week's quarterly circulation numbers included some positive news about the New York Times' paywall, as Ken Doctor noted at the Lab last week: The New York Times' Sunday circulation actually went up, for the first time in five years, Buy Tramadol No Prescription. Poynter's Rick Edmonds pointed out that this quarter's numbers are the result of a formula in flux, but the good signs have people like NPR's David Folkenflik rethinking the value of online news paywalls.
Not everyone's high on paywalls, of course: After initially being surprised by the high numbers of subscribers to Newsday's online edition, Forbes' Jeff Bercovici found that the number paying for it on its own is still under 1,000. Is Tramadol safe, And GigaOM's Mathew Ingram said that despite its initial success, the Times' paywall is still a stopgap strategy — "an attempt to create the kind of artificial information scarcity that newspapers used to enjoy. And if that is all that newspapers are trying to do, the future looks pretty bleak indeed."
Yahoo's new personalized news app: Yahoo jumped into the tablet world this week, announcing the launch of several products for the iPad, including the social TV app IntoNow and Livestand, a "personalized living magazine" (yup, another one), discount Tramadol. Buy Tramadol No Prescription, The obvious point of comparison is Flipboard, and opinions were varied as to how well Livestand compares to Flipboard. Mashable's Ben Parr was pretty impressed, though he noted that Livestand and Flipboard are gathering their content in different ways — Flipboard through your social feeds, and Livestand through its content partners.
Others weren't quite so wowed. Kara Swisher of All Things Digital said Livestand shouldn't be anything new for Flipboard users, and Wired's Tim Carmody saw the difference between Flipboard and Livestand that Parr mentioned as a fundamental error by Yahoo. Tramadol overnight, Flipboard is built for readers, to allow them to distill the good stuff from their social and RSS feeds, he said. But "Yahoo’s Livestand only solves problems for publishers and advertisers: how to display content and advertising to readers without having to have everyone write their own code from scratch." The Lab's Ken Doctor gave several useful areas in which to evaluate Livestand and the coming tablet aggregator wars, Buy Tramadol No Prescription.
Advertising is a big part of what's new with Livestand: With it, they also unveiled Living Ads, which is the latest attempt to create a magazine-like ad on the tablet, using HTML5. As Adweek noted, generic Tramadol, the ads take up a third of the screen and are interactive, with animation and video available. These ads are pretty expensive, but Yahoo's Blake Irving told Business Insider they get advertisers away from the CPM model, which he believes hasn't served advertisers well.
Is Assange a step closer to the U.S.?: A week after WikiLeaks announced that it would temporarily shut down to raise money, Tramadol from canada, the whistleblowing website got some more bad news when a British high court ruled that WikiLeaks' founder, Julian Assange, can be extradited to Sweden on charges of sexual assault, rejecting an appeal of a ruling made earlier this year. Buy Tramadol No Prescription, Assange can still appeal to Britain's Supreme Court, but it's headed to Sweden to face trial.
Assange has opposed the extradition to Sweden because he contends that the rulers of that country are aligned against him, but the specter of another extradition is also looming: As Paul Sawers of The Next Web noted, Assange and his supporters are concerned that a move to Sweden would make it much easier for him to be sent to the United States, where the Obama administration and members of Congress have discussed prosecuting him for releasing sensitive information through WikiLeaks, where can i order Tramadol without prescription. Forbes' Andy Greenberg argued, however, that Assange would be more likely to be sent to the U.S. from Britain than from Sweden.
The Associated Press looked at whether WikiLeaks could survive Assange's extradition — its answer: probably not — and Swedish columnist Karin Olsson wrote in the Guardian that Assange has lost all of his intriguing man-of-mystery status in her country. But Australian journalist Matt da Silva urged people not to let up in their support of Assange, praising him as a crusader against government's efforts to manage and control the media, Buy Tramadol No Prescription.
Reconciling journalism and political views: What started a couple of weeks ago as yet another public radio conundrum regarding its employees and political opinions morphed into an interesting discussion about journalism and transparency. My Tramadol experience, Two public radio employees, Lisa Simeone of Soundprint and Caitlin Curran of WYNC's The Takeaway, were fired after taking part in Occupy Wall Street protests. Curran told her story at Gawker, and Brooke Gladstone, host of the NPR show On the Media, discussed NPR's policy in a live chat.
The Atlantic's Conor Friedersdorf argued that WNYC was wrong to fire Curran, buy Tramadol without prescription, pointing out that several NPR reporters have made essentially the same point she did in her protest sign, and have been praised for it. He and the Guardian's Dan Gillmor also made the case Buy Tramadol No Prescription, for doing away with the philosophy of viewlessness in the American press. As Gillmor put it, telling journalists they can't even hint at what they believe "puts a barrier between them and their audiences – a serious problem given that news and journalism are evolving from a lecture into a conversation." Though he wasn't discussing the public radio firings, Gawker's Hamilton Nolan did provide a counterargument, defending journalistic facelessness and an institutional writing style. Tramadol trusted pharmacy reviews, And as if on cue, former New York Sun editor Ira Stoll launched News Transparency, a site that lets people know about journalists' backgrounds as a kind of imposed transparency from the outside, as Poynter's Jeff Sonderman put it.
The Verge takes off: A new tech blog to watch: The sports blog network SB Nation launched a tech blog called The Verge this week, under the leadership of several former Engadget staffers. As part of the launch, SB Nation and The Verge will both fall under a new parent media called Vox Media, where can i buy cheapest Tramadol online. The site got some initial rave reviews over its updating story streams, something that SB Nation has been using for a while, Buy Tramadol No Prescription.
Business Insider has an interview with the folks behind the site, and the Lab's Justin Ellis talked about where SB Nation/Vox will go from here. The Lab's Joshua Benton also pulled three lessons for news orgs out of the site's development, emphasizing bold, tablet-style design, structured data, Tramadol class, and community.
Reading roundup: Tons of stuff going on this week. Here's the TL;DR version of the rest:
— Google began giving journalists photos next to their stories in Google News — but only if they have a Google+ account. Alexander Howard was OK with it Buy Tramadol No Prescription, , but Columbia's Emily Bell wasn't, calling it coercion and saying it only helped Google, not journalism.
— The St. Petersburg Times, a newspaper owned by the nonprofit Poynter Institute, announced it will change its name to the Tampa Bay Times on Jan. 1, order Tramadol online c.o.d, broadening its geographic focus. Poynter rounded up some of the reaction on social media and compared the decision to other recent newspaper name changes.
— Your weekly News Corp, Buy Tramadol No Prescription. phone hacking update: New documents released by a committee of Britain's Parliament revealed that a company attorney warned of a culture of hacking back in 2008. Here's the summary from News Corp.'s own Wall Street Journal and a blow-by-blow from the Guardian.
— As GigaOM's Colleen Taylor reported, Twitter has quietly unveiled new Top News and Top People search functions. Tramadol photos, Poynter's Jeff Sonderman looked at the effect it will have on publishers.
— The Guardian launched n0tice, their open community news platform. The Lab's Megan Garber took a look at the new site, and The Next Web's Martin Bryant examined it as a possible replacement for local newspapers.
— Finally, here's hoping this inspiring Lab post by Jacob Harris will forever put an end to the insipid question, "Will X save journalism?".

News consumers and paid content on tablets: We're now a year and a half into the tablet era, so we've started to get a more stable sense of exactly who's using them and how. The Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism added to that understanding this week with what's probably the most comprehensive study to date on tablet use, particularly for news, Cipro use.
The survey's big headline was of the good-news, bad-news variety: 77% of users read news on their tablets at least weekly, and 53% do it daily. That's the good news. The bad news, Cipro Over The Counter. Cipro price, Only 14% have paid directly for the news they're reading on their tablet — though another 23% get access as part of a print subscription package. And those who haven't paid valued the free-ness of their news sources pretty highly.
The fact that people love to read news on their iPads but aren't particularly willing to pay for it didn't seem to worry PEJ director Tom Rosenstiel too much — he told Adweek that things will be different in a year or two as people get used to paying for tablet news, just as they got used to paying for TV.
Poynter's Jeff Sonderman noted that while most users prefer to get their news via browser, many of those in the paying crowd are the ones using mostly apps, buy Cipro from canada. Cipro Over The Counter, He suggested going with a two-tiered paid/free approach, with an ad-driven browser site and a paid, premium app. "Rather than bemoan the small number of people who will pay, or freeze out the large number who won’t, the smart publisher will find ways to capture both audiences," he said.
A couple of other tidbits from the study: John Paul Titlow of ReadWriteWeb said it's good news for publishers and e-businesses that tablets are drawing much more of people's undivided attention than desktops or laptops did, and Mathew Ingram of GigaOM noted that people aren't sharing much of the news they're reading on their tablets, identifying social features as an area where news orgs could stand to improve on tablets.
WikiLeaks goes into hibernation: WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange announced this week that the site may be forced to close by the end of the year because what he called a "financial blockade" of major banks and credit card companies refusing to process donations for it. Australia, uk, us, usa, The blockade, begun last December after WikiLeaks began releasing its collection of diplomatic cables, has wiped out as much as 95% of the site's revenues, according to Assange, forcing it run on its reserves over the past several months.
WikiLeaks has stopped processing leaks and shifted its resources to fundraising, where can i cheapest Cipro online, including lawsuits and petitions it has filed in several countries to force the companies to process their donations. As Australia's the Age reported, its leaders hope to back up and running within a month, Cipro Over The Counter.
At the Guardian, Dan Gillmor chastised news organizations for their lack of concern about the financial companies' action against WikiLeaks, saying the blockade is "a danger to everyone. Where can i buy cheapest Cipro online, It is a harbinger of a future where governments will find new leverage points to shut down the media they don't like." Gawker's Adrian Chen, on the other hand, posed some good questions on WikiLeaks' use of money this year, wondered how the group has used up most of its reserves (reported at $1.3 million at the end of 2010) without publishing any major new leaks.
With WikiLeaks now in rebuilding mode, the Atlantic's Elspeth Reeve reflected on what the site has done for transparency and networked journalism, Cipro for sale, and her conclusion wasn't a flattering one. She called its experiment in enabling mass document leaking "an abysmal failure," noting that its most consequential leaks all seem to have come from one man — Bradley Manning — who's now in jail. Cipro Over The Counter, "All those theoretical discussions of an anarchic new citizen press driven by anonymous file-sharing remain academic," she said.
Reeve noted that leakers seem to be no safer now than they were a few years ago, Online buy Cipro without a prescription, and that goes for the ones who give information to traditional news organizations as well as WikiLeaks. Writing in the New York Times, data security expert Christopher Soghoian praised WikiLeaks for its security measures to protect its confidential sources while lamenting how poorly traditional news orgs do at the technical aspects of that job. It's probably not a coincidence, then, that news orgs' efforts at creating WikiLeaks-like leak submission programs have stalled, Cipro overnight, as Forbes' Jeff Bercovici reported.
Murdoch & Co. hang on at News Corp.: The long-simmering outrage at News Corp, Cipro Over The Counter. over its phone-hacking and circulation inflation scandals may have been expected by some to come to a head last Friday at the company's annual shareholder meeting, but there were relatively few fireworks to be seen. My Cipro experience, Rupert Murdoch made a defiant address to shareholders, describing the criticism of his company as "both understandable scrutiny and unfair attack."
As expected, there were shareholders who called for Murdoch and his sons to step down, and a good number of critical questions parried by Murdoch, as paidContent documented. But the main business of the meeting remained unaffected: Murdoch and his sons were re-elected to the News Corp, effects of Cipro. board, though there was speculation that an "embarrassingly high" number of shareholders voted against them, according to the Independent. Cipro Over The Counter, Meanwhile, former Dow Jones CEO Les Hinton testified before a committee of Parliament about the phone hacking and, predictably, gave a whole lot of "I don't recall"s and non-answers.
Reading roundup: This week was one of those weeks without many big stories in the future-of-journalism world, Purchase Cipro online no prescription, but with a lot of small ones. Here are a few of them:
— As Megan Garber reported at the Lab this week, USA Today tried something new that we may see other news organizations doing in the future, licensing the data from the databases it produces on its website to commercial app developers. As GigaOM's Mathew Ingram and the Knight Digital Media Center's Amy Gahran pointed out, the real benefit of moves like this may be less about revenue and more about a creating a crowdsourced R&D department, Cipro online cod.
— The death of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was the big news story late last week, and there were a couple of media-oriented angles. The big one was whether news orgs chose to show pictures or video of Gadhafi dead or being beaten, Cipro Over The Counter. Poynter's Julie Moos found that U.S. newspapers were less likely than European ones to run the gruesome images. Cipro forum, Those orgs that did run them ended up having to defend themselves. Meanwhile, Techdirt's Mike Masnick looked at the copyright issues involved with camera-phone footage of Gadhafi's beating. Cipro Over The Counter, — After Jeff Jarvis and Evgeny Morozov traded blows over the past couple of weeks about Jarvis' new book, "Private Parts," the Lab's Megan Garber weighed in with a brilliant post on why books's ideas aren't truly read and discussed, and how to make it so that they are. Jarvis chimed in with some more ways to disrupt the book/conference cycle.
— Gawker's Hamilton Nolan unearthed a sketchy linking-for-pay scheme from a small marketing company that claimed to have pulled it off with the Huffington Post and Business Insider. Those two orgs, buy Cipro online cod, naturally, issued denials.
— Media/tech entrepreneurs Cody Brown and Katie Ray introduced another venture this week with Scroll, a tool intended to help publishers use a variety of more sophisticated web designs without knowing how to code them. The Lab had a profile of it.
— In a masterful column, the New York Times' David Carr suggested that some of the Occupy Wall Street agitation should be directed toward newspaper chains, such as Gannett and the Tribune Co., who give their executives massive bonuses while laying off employees.
— Finally, I've linked to a lot of "programming for journalists" guides and tipsheets here, but this one by Jonathan Richards at the Guardian may be the best I've seen at capturing and explaining the coding mentality in simple terms. Give it a read.

TechCrunch, ethics, and new notions of journalism: The prominent tech news site TechCrunch tends to find itself in the middle of some controversy or another fairly regularly. Usually they're relatively inconsequential inside baseball, but this week's blowup is by far its biggest, and it spurred some enlightening discussion outside of the tech-news bubble, canada, mexico, india.
Here's the quick summary of what happened (the Guardian has a fuller version): Michael Arrington, TechCrunch's founder and editor, launched a venture capital fund to invest in tech companies — the same companies TechCrunch covers. AOL, which bought the site last year, responded by taking him off of TechCrunch and moving him to the business side in an arrangement that no one completely understood. Arrington fired back with an ultimatum: Give TechCrunch total editorial freedom, or sell it back to him, Order Glucophage. Effects of Glucophage, AOL has reportedly countered by booting Arrington entirely. Whatever happens, TechCrunch's MG Siegler said the site won't likely be the same.
There were conflicting views on the impact of Arrington's reported ouster, of course — Reuters' Felix Salmon said AOL is losing its top journalist, while Fortune's Chadwick Matlin said the fall of TechCrunch would be good for the tech industry. But the central issue here was the ethics of Arrington's arrangement — investing in the same companies his site covers, something he's been doing openly for years, real brand Glucophage online.
The critique was articulated most strongly by the New York Times' David Carr Order Glucophage, , who documented several instances of TechCrunch writing favorable pieces on companies in which Arrington had invested, calling the arrangement "almost comically over the line." All Things Digital's Kara Swisher delivered an angrier version — "A giant, greedy, Silicon Valley pig pile" — and many others were also critical, including the Atlantic's Alexis Madrigal, Rem Rieder of the American Journalism Review, and VentureBeat's Dylan Tweney.
TechCrunch had its defenders, too, including Gawker's Ryan Tate, who argued for the hypocrisy of AOL's Arianna Huffington's sudden concern about ethics. The most thorough defenses, though, Glucophage coupon, came from TechCrunch's writers themselves: First, Paul Carr asserted that the new company would have nothing to do with TechCrunch. Then, both Carr and MG Siegler responded to David Carr's column by arguing that their site doesn't have the editorial workflow that its critics assume, and by criticizing the Times for its own ethical conflicts. "Ultimately there is only one thing that matters: information. People don’t care how they get it, just that they get it. If they don’t think they can trust it from one source, they’ll find another way to get it," Siegler wrote, Order Glucophage.
Some observers, buy cheap Glucophage no rx, like New York mag's Chris Rovzar, called that defense naive. In a terrific post here at the Lab, j-prof C.W. Anderson looked a bit deeper into the ways TechCrunch's philosophy challenges traditional journalism's norms, particularly the site's commitment to transparency as its primary ethical safeguard and its idea of the supremacy of information. About Glucophage, There was also the question of whether Arrington should have to abide by journalistic standards in the first place. Arrington asserted Order Glucophage, that he's not a journalist, and tech pioneer Dave Winer argued that "journalism itself is becoming obsolete." GigaOM's Mathew Ingram countered that journalism is still alive, just evolving and expanding, and j-prof Jeff Jarvis said journalism defies definition, and that's just fine.
A bigger challenge for Digital First: John Paton has grabbed a lot of attention with his rejuvenation of the formerly bankrupt newspaper chain the Journal Register Co., and this week, his project expanded to include a much larger (also formerly bankrupt) company, MediaNews Group, which owns papers such as the Denver Post, St. Paul Pioneer Press, Glucophage gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, and Detroit News. Though the two companies will remain formally separate, Paton will manage both companies under the auspices of the newly created Digital First Media.
Paton briefly reiterated his digitally centered philosophy in a blog post on the move, and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram called him the "patron saint" of the digitally focused, open approach to newspapers, Buy Glucophage no prescription, as opposed to the more print-protectionist, paywall-oriented one. Reuters' Felix Salmon said Paton's model of leveraging local sales staff and trusted editorial content for digital revenue makes much more sense than the hyperlocal-en-masse Patch model, Order Glucophage.
There's another important aspect to this deal, though: the Journal Register Co. was bought this summer by Alden Global Capital, a hedge fund that also owns a significant stake in MediaNews and several other newspaper companies. The Lab's Joshua Benton provided some background on that situation, and Ken Doctor predicted that the move "may mark just the beginning of a local newspaper roll-up, Glucophage cost, resulting in the United States’ first truly national local news(paper) company," noting that Paton's Digital First initiative is also accompanied by major cost-cutting. At the Knight Digital Media Center, Amy Gahran expressed concern that Paton's plans could run aground on an entrenched traditional culture at MediaNews and the impatience of hedge-fund investors. Order Glucophage, MediaNews also has newly installed paywalls at 23 papers, and Paton told paidContent he isn't sure yet what will happen to them. But one change has already been made: MediaNews' contract with copyright litigant Righthaven has been ended.
WikiLeaks under fire: We talked last week about the inadvertent release of the rest of WikiLeaks' archive of 251, Glucophage pharmacy, 000 diplomatic cables and the fallout that ensued. As it happened, WikiLeaks decided late last week to go ahead and publish all of the unredacted cables themselves, given that they had already been leaked online.
The decision led to more criticism — not just from the traditional media, but from others on the web: the Personal Democracy Forum's Micah Sifry, author of a book on WikiLeaks, chastised the organization for the dump, online buy Glucophage without a prescription, saying it's thrown away the moral high ground. Consultant Tom Watson said WikiLeaks' move has damaged their efforts at transparency and an empowered society, and James Ball, a former WikiLeaks volunteer, made the same point more powerfully by painting a picture of an internal culture at odds with the group's stated ideals of accountability and openness. "WikiLeaks has done the cause of internet freedom – and of whistleblowers – more harm than US government crackdowns ever could," he said, Order Glucophage.
Tech blogger Dave Winer, however, After Glucophage, was more troubled by the traditional media's eagerness to blame and ostracize Assange for the incident. It's not about one person, he said, it's about the technology that makes WikiLeaks possible: "They have a method that they have religious feelings about, ones that some of us don't share, and that method is broken by the Wikileaks model." Mediaite's Frances Martel, meanwhile, wondered why no one seemed to care about the documents themselves, herbal Glucophage.
Yahoo fires its CEO: After a tumultuous two-and-a-half-year tenure, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz was fired this week. The next step for the troubled Internet giant could be to engineer a sale, as CNNMoney's Paul La Monica urged it to do. Order Glucophage, Plenty of names were tossed around as potential buyers, most recently Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang.
The Wall Street Journal detailed what's gone wrong at Yahoo, and Om Malik of GigaOM was one of many who pinned many of the company's failings on its board.

Hurricane news' innovation and hype: The big U.S. news story this week was Hurricane Irene, which hit the East Coast and New England last weekend. It was a story that hit particularly close to home for many of the U.S.' leading news organizations, which led to some innovative journalism, but also some questionable coverage, Cipro treatment, too.
Several news organizations temporarily took down their online paywalls during the storm, led by the New York Times and the Long Island newspaper Newsday. The Times also used the storm as an opportunity to introduce a new Twitter account devoted to curation of information on Twitter by the paper's editors, Purchase Cipro. The Lab's Megan Garber noted that the account is incorporating much more conversation than the Times' other official Twitter accounts, and Jeff Sonderman of Poynter talked to the Times about its goal with the account — to provide a space for faster, more unrestrained information from the Times on Twitter. Cipro street price, Another good example of storm-related news innovation: The Journal Register Co.'s Ben Franklin Project.
Irene was also a big occasion for TV news, which trotted out the usual round-the-clock coverage and on-location weather-defying reports. After the storm passed through, many questioned whether news organizations had gone over the top in their breathless coverage of Irene. The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz accused cable news Purchase Cipro, of being "utterly swept away by the notion that Irene would turn out to be Armageddon," and at the Boston Herald, Michael Graham called the Irene coverage "a manufactured media product with a tenuous connection to the actual news."
Others (many outside the TV news industry) pushed back against those charges: Northeastern j-prof Dan Kennedy said that the storm's damage actually largely matched the coverage; it just seemed like it fizzled out because that damage wasn't near New York or Washington. The New York Times' Nate Silver took a more scientific approach and made a similar conclusion, showing that the amount of Irene coverage was generally in line with that of previous storms, when the level of damage was factored in, Cipro dose.
Poynter's Julie Moos, who put together a great summary of the hurricane hype debate, also argued that Irene's severity matched the level of coverage, providing along the way a useful six-part measuring stick for journalistic hype. "The perception of hype is fed by the gap between supply and demand," she said. "Journalists must make more closely calibrated decisions than ever about what information to provide."
Social network as identity service: Google CEO Eric Schmidt threw some more fuel onto the slow-burning argument over Google+ and real names when he said at a conference last weekend that the new social network is essentially an "identity service with a link structure around your friends" — a way for others on the Internet to verify your identity and communicate with you under that identity. Where can i cheapest Cipro online, Asked about the risks to some people of such a hard-and-fast online identity, Schmidt replied that, well, they don't have to use Google+ then.
It was quite a telling quote regarding Google+'s true purpose — one that several commentators seized on, Purchase Cipro. Mashable's Pete Cashmore described the battle between Google and Facebook over web identity and reasoned that the reason Google is taking a hard line on real names is that it needs its identity system to be more reliable than Facebook's. Venture capitalist Fred Wilson said now we officially know who the real-names policy is really for: Google, not us. "The answer to why you need to use your real name in the service is because they need you to," he said, where to buy Cipro.
GigaOM's Mathew Ingram used the statement to tie together his description of what's at stake in the identity competition — the more accurate and detailed identities are, the more advertisers will pay for them. Tech blogger Dave Winer was more blunt: Google+ is a bank, he said. Purchase Cipro, They need people's real names because they want to move money around, like any other business. At the Guardian, tech writer Cory Doctorow argued that we need to open up this discussion about online identity, Cipro class, and that the single-identity philosophy Google's espousing isn't in our best interests.
Meanwhile, this month's Carnival of Journalism blog ring wrote about Google+, with several writers urging journalists and academics to "just use it," as the University of Colorado's Steve Outing put it. Spot.Us' David Cohn put the rationale well: "The reason to be on Google+ isn’t because it’s the newest, hottest, sexiest thing, Cipro from canadian pharmacy. ... You should be on these sites to understand how people are communicating and the vocabulary of this communication."

Zite will continue to operate as a separate unit, Cipro long term, across the country from CNN's headquarters.

And when asked by Mashable's Lauren Indvik about adding ads, CNN execs said they're going to build up the product first and worry about the business model later. Mathew Ingram of GigaOM said Zite can help CNN learn what people are sharing, why, Cipro use, and how they want news presented in a mobile format.
WikiLeaks' inadvertent cable release Purchase Cipro, : This week marked what looks like the beginning of a new, bizarre confusing chapter in the WikiLeaks saga. The story's been a bit of a confusing story, but I'll try to break it down for you: Ever since last November, WikiLeaks has been gradually releasing documents from its collection of diplomatic cables. But over the past couple of weeks, the full archive of 251, Cheap Cipro no rx, 000 cables was inadvertently released online, without sensitive information redacted, as WikiLeaks had been doing.
WikiLeaks blamed the Guardian, the British newspaper with which it had been working, for publishing the password to the hidden document files in a book about WikiLeaks earlier this year.

In the meantime, as Der Spiegel explained well, Daniel Domscheit-Berg had defected from WikiLeaks with the server that contained the files, and other WikiLeaks supporters spread the files around to keep them from being taken off the web, Purchase Cipro. Once the password leaked out, the contents of the files gradually started spilling online, and by Wednesday night, they were completely public, according to Der Spiegel. It's not entirely clear what WikiLeaks will do with the files now, Cipro duration, but that's where the conflict stands.
FT pulls out of the App Store: Back in June, the Financial Times became the first major news organization to develop an HTML5 app for Apple's App Store, allowing it to design a single app for multiple platforms and to handle subscriptions outside of the app itself, which gave it a way around Apple's 30% cut. FT removed the app from the App Store this week instead of complying with Apple's requirement that all subscriptions be handled within apps.
As paidContent's Robert Andrews explained Purchase Cipro, , FT can still make money off of existing iPad app users, but the paper says most of its users have switched over the web app, and its web app use is growing quickly enough that this isn't a big loss anyway. As GigaOM's Darrell Etherington pointed out, this could be an important test case in whether a news organization can replace its Apple-based app business with an HTML5-based web app, comprar en línea Cipro, comprar Cipro baratos.
A new generation of campaign reporters: We're starting to hurtle toward full-on presidential campaign season in the U.S., and according to the New York Times, many of the reporters who'll be covering it are 20-somethings, mere babes in the dark, scary woods of campaign journalism. The Times did a trend story on these young reporters, Doses Cipro work, focusing on a boot camp for them put on by CBS and National Journal. Among the advice they're getting: Be careful to slip up in public view, and don't break news on Twitter.
Mocking, of course, ensued, Purchase Cipro. Village Voice's Rosie Gray said CBS and National Journal are asking to get beat on big stories with their Twitter policy, and Alex Pareene of Salon said the moral of the story is that modern campaign journalism is so inane that it can be pushed off to barely experienced reporters without anyone being the wiser. The Columbia Journalism Review's Erika Fry had perhaps the most substantive concern: Why are these reporters being taught primarily about avoiding gaffes, rather than actually doing good journalism.

— The New York Times' public editor, buy Cipro from canada, Arthur Brisbane, wrote a column criticizing the Times' popular DealBook site for missing large-scale economic issues in favor of small, incremental daily stories.
