[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Order Zoloft, on March 9, 2012.]
After a week off last week, this week's review covers the past two weeks.
Cultural roots of news' revenue problems: Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism released this week one of the more interesting of its recent studies on the financial state of newspapers: It used (anonymized) private data from 38 newspapers and numerous interviews to paint a picture of how newspapers are fitting together the revenue puzzle online. The news, as usual, wasn't good. The big takeaway stat is that for every dollar newspapers are gaining in digital revenue, they're losing $7 in print revenue.
The Lab's Justin Ellis pulled together some of the other highlights from the report: Mobile isn't big money yet, Zoloft reviews, digital revenue is still dominated by classified and display ads, and most newspapers have adopted Groupon or one of its daily-deal clones, with mixed results. PaidContent's Staci Kramer critiqued the study for not touching on paid-content plans, but came up with a good (though depressing summary): "some papers are less screwed than others right now; all of them face a reckoning but some will postpone it longer than others; some papers have lots of room to grow with digital revenue because they’re so far behind; and some view running a modern newspaper as the equivalent of strip mining."
Based on those dispiriting findings, Gawker's Hamilton Nolan offered a few predictions for the next several years of the newspaper business: Newspapers will survive and eventually stabilize, but with much smaller staffs, ubiquitous paywalls, and a few mid-sized metro closings, Order Zoloft.
Another area of the study that got a lot of attention was its emphasis on "culture wars" between print and the web as a persistent obstacle to change. Poynter's Rick Edmonds said a faster culture-change approach seems to be working at previously struggling properties like the Journal Register Co., but outfits that still have strong print operations need to strike a tougher balance. Zoloft price, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram said the best way to fight cultural inertia is to put the digital folks in charge, and Michele McLellan of the Knight Digital Media Center advised news orgs to stop ostracizing the innovators and start ostracizing the curmudgeons.
More momentum for paywalls: A year after the New York Times launched its influential paid-content plan, newspaper paywalls may be reaching critical mass. Order Zoloft, The Los Angeles Times announced a new paywall that launched this week, and like just about everyone else right now, it's following the Times' metered model: 15 free articles each month, then an initial charge of 99 cents a week that goes up to $1.99 a week (with a Sunday newspaper thrown in). The Times is calling its plan not a paywall, but a "membership program," which Spot.Us' David Cohn saw as an important rhetorical shift.
Several other papers announced moves into paid content, where to buy Zoloft, too: As Poynter's Jeff Sonderman noted, the Washington Post's new politics iPad app charges users $2.99 a month for its full features, the paper's deepest foray yet into charging for digital content. Rhode Island's Providence Journal launched a paywall built around a digital replica of the print edition. Gannett also announced its coming company-wide paywalls last month, which, Purchase Zoloft for sale, as the Lab's Justin Ellis reported, may be banking on the success of its smaller papers. And at News Corp., the hard-paywalled Times of London is watching the New York Times' metered model closely, and Search Engine Land's Danny Sullivan noticed the paywalled Wall Street Journal is pulling back on what Google readers can see for free, Order Zoloft.
All these varied developments, of course, make what the news industry calls a Trend™, so we had features on the rise of newspaper paywalls in the Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and The Wrap. The (paywalled) Journal was pretty bullish on their prospect, while the (mostly non-paywalled) Monitor and Wrap emphasized the continued skepticism. Several small-newspaper execs chimed in supporting paywalls, including Keith Foutz at Editor & Publisher and others covered by NetNewsCheck, as did Warren Buffett, Rx free Zoloft, new owner of the newly paywalled Omaha World-Herald. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram pushed back against Buffett in particular.
Poynter's Rick Edmonds pointed out an interesting element Order Zoloft, of the paywall rush—many of these regional newspapers are developing their plans in close consultation with one another. He focused on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Boston Globe's roles as models for other regional newspapers. Poynter's Mallary Jean Tenore, meanwhile, looked at a practical aspect of paywall implementation—how those newspapers' social media efforts work with (and around) their paywall plans.
Apple's new iPad and new warning: Apple unveiled the newest version of its iPad this week, as well as an update to Apple TV. Bloomberg and the New York Times have the best summaries of what exactly Apple announced and how it differs from what came before: As the Times' Sam Grobart wrote, Zoloft dosage, this was a "plumbing event," where the biggest innovations were under the hood with the infrastructure of Apple's products.
For Apple, the event was about trying to push the iPad as the gateway to the "post-PC" world: It pointed out that it sold more iPads last quarter than any PC manufacturer sold of their PCs. At TechCrunch, MG Siegler said that rhetoric (and those stats) need to be taken seriously, and ReadWriteWeb's Dan Frommer said this could be Apple's chance to build something bigger than the PC market ever was, Order Zoloft. Larry Dignan said it's not just PCs that the new iPad is competing with, but pretty much everyone. Zoloft street price, Unfortunately for Apple, that probably wasn't the biggest news about the company this week. The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of Justice has warned Apple and five of the nation's largest book publishers that it's planning to sue them for antitrust violations regarding Apple's model for iPad e-book prices that allows wholesales to dictate prices directly. PaidContent has a handy Q&A Order Zoloft, on the issue, and Wired's Tim Carmody looked at the uphill battle the DOJ may be facing.
News Corp.'s culture of corruption: The developments in News Corp.'s ongoing scandal are still coming fast and furious. The biggest of those in the past two weeks was the news that Rupert Murdoch's son, James, was stepping down as head of News International, Zoloft treatment, the company's British newspaper arm that's been at the center of the scandal.
As the New York Times reported, the company portrayed the move as a routine jump across the Atlantic to work on its international TV properties, but others saw it as an attempt to protect James Murdoch from the scandal's fallout. Disgruntled shareholders are still working to oust James from the company altogether, and the BBC's Robert Preston pointed out that rather than receding from the spotlight in the wake of the scandal, the 80-year-old Rupert is actually taking on even more control. Zoloft use, James Murdoch's move came after some new allegations last week from a top police investigator that News Corp.'s Sun had a "culture of illegal payments" to a broad network of government officials from the paper's highest levels. According to the Guardian, those new allegations increased the chance of a possible U.S, Order Zoloft. prosecution of News Corp., and an 11th Sun reporter was arrested in Britain for illegal payments last week. Meanwhile, we're finding out the phone hacking may have extended to competing British newspapers, and Britain's judicial Leveson Inquiry, which is investigating News Corp., is also preparing to call top News Corp, where can i cheapest Zoloft online. execs, including Rupert Murdoch, for testimony later this spring.
The public and professional value of linking: The intermittent debate over the relative value of linking in journalism flared up again last week, leading to some particularly thoughtful pieces on the subject. Order Zoloft, It started after the Wall Street Journal didn't credit tech blogger MG Siegler for a scoop he had, prompting a lengthy discussion on Twitter, Storified by Mathew Ingram, over whether news orgs should link to competitors who beat them to a story.
Ingram argued in a subsequent post that even if scoops aren't as important as journalists think they are, Zoloft from canadian pharmacy, the failure to link to a competitor's scoop is a dishonest suggestion that they came by the information independently. Reuters' Felix Salmon responded with an insightful piece on journalistic sourcing that concluded that such linking is usually more of a courtesy: "commodity news is a commodity: facts are in the public domain, and don’t belong to anybody."
Mother Jones' Kevin Drum and Poynter's Steve Myers agreed with Salmon, while Digital First's Steve Buttry and web philosopher David Weinberger echoed some of Ingram's points. Weinberger argued that places like the Journal are failing to link based on a need to protect their authority over knowledge, rather than sharing it with the public, and that "Links are a public good. They create a web that is increasingly rich, useful, where can i buy Zoloft online, diverse, and trustworthy. We should all feel an obligation to be caretakers of and contributors to this new linked public."
WikiLeaks' Anonymous partnership: WikiLeaks made its latest document release last week with five million emails from the private global intelligence firm Stratfor, acquired by hackers from the group Anonymous who breached the company's servers late last year. WikiLeaks worked with 25 media partners on this release, including McClatchy and Rolling Stone in the U.S. Wired's Quinn Norton reported on the connection between Anonymous and WikiLeaks, which Gawker called the most interesting thing to come out of this leak, Order Zoloft.
Others seemed to agree — mostly on the boredom of the rest of the leak. Zoloft trusted pharmacy reviews, Reuters' Jack Shafer and Foreign Policy's Daniel Drezner gave it a yawn, while the Atlantic's Max Fisher called WikiLeaks a "joke" for taking Stratfor seriously. Yossi Melman of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz told the story of how he became an enemy of WikiLeaks' Julian Assange by getting his hands on the diplomatic cables, and with WikiLeaks on the wane, GigaOM's Mathew Ingram asked what the organization means in the long run.
Reading roundup: I've tried to cram a ton of news into this week's review, so I'll run through the miscellaneous bits pretty quickly:
— Conservative digital media mogul Andrew Breitbart died suddenly last week at 43. Order Zoloft, We're not so much interested in what he meant to the culture wars as his imprint on the online news environment, and it was sizable—he helped launch the Huffington Post, helped undermine the traditional media's gatekeeping authority, and made it his career goal to "go out and create our media."
— It's been two weeks now, but I wanted to note that NPR put out a new ethics policy focusing on balance, transparency, and clarification, among other principles. J-prof Jay Rosen loved the changes, order Zoloft from mexican pharmacy, calling them a win for truth-seeking over "he said, she said" journalism.
— The discussion of Google+ as a "virtual ghost town" continues, with the Wall Street Journal reporting on the social network's struggles and Google countering that image by reframing Google+'s purpose. TechCrunch's Josh Constine explained why Google may not care if people stick around at Google+.
— Last week's monthly Carnival of Journalism focused on the digital trends that are likely to shape journalism over the next few years, and Steve Outing's Storified list of the predictions is a great array of thoughts about what's next in the field.
— Finally, a couple of cool resources: One from the Columbia Journalism Review on countering misinformation in the news, and another huge set of tools and tutorials for journalists and programmers from last month's NICAR conference.

[This week's review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Purchase Bactrim, on May 20, 2011.]
Twitter on the brain: Last week, New York Times executive editor Bill Keller got a rise out of a lot of folks online with one of the shortest of his 21 career tweets: "#TwitterMakesYouStupid. Discuss." Keller revealed the purpose of his social experiment this week in a column arguing, in so many words, that Twitter may be dulling your humanity, and probably making you stupid, too. Here's the money quote: "my inner worrywart wonders whether the new technologies overtaking us may be eroding characteristics that are essentially human: our ability to reflect, real brand Bactrim online, our pursuit of meaning, genuine empathy, a sense of community connected by something deeper than snark or political affinity."
This, as you might imagine, did not go over particularly well online. Bactrim used for, There were a couple strains of reaction: Business Insider's Henry Blodget and All Twitter's Lauren Dugan argued that Twitter may indeed be changing us, but for the good, by helping make previously impossible connections.
Alexia Tsotsis of TechCrunch and Mike Masnick of Techdirt countered Keller by saying that while Twitter isn't built for deep conversations, it is quite good at providing an entry point for such discussion: "What you see publicly posted on Twitter and Facebook is just the tip of the conversation iceberg," Tsotsis said. GigaOM's Mathew Ingram, meanwhile, defended Twitter's true social nature, and sociologist Zeynep Tufekci gave a fantastic breakdown of what Twitter does and doesn't do culturally and socially, Purchase Bactrim.
Two of the most eloquent responses were provided by Nick Bilton, Bactrim brand name, one of Keller's own employees, and by Gizmodo's Mat Honan. Bilton pointed out that our brains have shown a remarkable ability to adapt quickly to new technologies without sacrificing old capacities. (Be sure to check out Keller's response afterward.)
Honan made a similar argument: Keller, he said, Bactrim schedule, is confusing the medium with the message, and Twitter, like any technology, is what you make it. "If you choose to do superficial things there, you will have superficial experiences. If you use it to communicate with others on a deeper level, you can have more meaningful experiences that make you smarter, Bactrim for sale, build lasting relationships, and generally enhance your life," Honan wrote.
Google gets more local with news Purchase Bactrim, : Google News unveiled a few interesting changes in the past week, starting with the launch of "News near you." Google has sorted news by location for a while now, but this feature will allow smartphone users to automatically get local news wherever they are. ReadWriteWeb's Dan Rowinski explained why newspapers should be worried about Google moving further onto their local-news turf, and GigaOM's Mathew Ingram criticized newspapers for not coming up with like this themselves. Cheap Bactrim, Poynter's Jeff Sonderman, on the other hand, said Google's feature is still in need of some human curation to go with its algorithmic aggregation. That's an area in which local newspapers can still dominate, he said, but it'll require some technological catchup, as well as a willingness to get over fears about linking to competitors, Bactrim over the counter.
Another change, not publicized by Google News but spotted by the folks at Search Engine Land, was the addition of an option to allow users to filter out blogs and press releases from their results. This raised the question, what exactly does Google consider a blog, Purchase Bactrim. Google told Search Engine Land it relies on a variety of factors to make that decision, especially self-identification. Bactrim coupon, Mathew Ingram ripped this classification, and urged Google to put everything that contains news together in Google News and let readers sort it out.
Fitting linking into news' workflow: A discussion about linking has been simmering on Twitter on and off over the past few weeks, and it began to come together into something useful this week. This round of the conversation started with a post by web thinker and scholar Doc Searls, who wondered why news organizations don't link out more often. Purchase Bactrim, In the comments, the Chicago Tribune's Brian Boyer suggested that one reason is that many newspapers' CMS's and workflows are print-centric, making linking logistically difficult.
CUNY j-prof C.W, purchase Bactrim online no prescription. Anderson responded that the workflow issue isn't much of an excuse, saying, as he put it on Twitter: "At this point 'linking' has been around for twenty years. The fact that this is STILL a workflow issue is almost worse than not caring." This kicked off a sprawling debate on Twitter, aptly chronicled via Storify by Mathew Ingram and Alex Byers. Bactrim wiki, Ingram also wrote a post responding to a few of the themes of resistance of links, particularly the notion that information on the web is inferior to information gained by old-fashioned reporting.
British journalist Kevin Anderson took on the workflow issue in particular, noting how outdated many newspaper CMS's are and challenging them to catch up technologically: "It’s an industrial workflow operating in a digital age, Purchase Bactrim. It’s really only down to ‘that’s the way we’ve always done it’ thinking that allows such a patently inefficient process to persist."
AOL's continued makeover: Another week, another slew of personnel moves at AOL. PaidContent's David Kaplan reported that AOL is hiring "a bunch" of new (paid) editors and shuffling some current employees around after its layoff of hundreds this spring. Overall, Kaplan wrote, doses Bactrim work, this is part of the continued effort to put the Huffington Post's stamp on AOL's editorial products.
One of the AOL entities most affected by the shifts is Seed, which had been a freelance network, but will now fall under AOL's advertising area as a business-to-business product. Purchase Bactrim, Saul Hansell, who was hired in 2009 to run Seed, is moving to HuffPo to edit its new "Big News" features. In a blog post, Bactrim long term, Hansell talked about what this means for HuffPo and for Seed.
Meanwhile, the company is also rolling out AOL Industry, a set of B2B sites covering energy, defense, and government. But wait, no prescription Bactrim online, that's not all: AOL's Patch is launching 33 new sites in states targeting the 2012 election. The hyperlocal news site Street Fight also reported that Patch is urging its editors to post more often, and a group of independent local news sites is banding together to tell the world that they are not Patch, nor anything like it.
Reading roundup: As always, plenty of other stuff get to this week, Purchase Bactrim.
— We mentioned a Pew report's reference to the Drudge Report's influence in last week's review, Where can i find Bactrim online, and this week the New York Times' David Carr marveled at Drudge's continued success without many new-media bells and whistles. Poynter's Julie Moos looked at Drudge's traffic over the years, while the Washington Post disputed Pew's numbers. ZDNet's David Gewirtz had five lessons Drudge can teach the rest of the media world.
— A few paid-content items: A Nielsen survey on what people are willing to pay for various mobile services, Poynter's Rick Edmonds on the New York Times' events marketing for its pay plan, and the Lab's Justin Ellis on paid-content lessons from small newspapers, online buying Bactrim hcl. Purchase Bactrim, — A couple of tablet-related items: Next Issue Media, a joint effort of five publishers to sell magazines on tablets, released its first set of magazines on Google Android-powered Samsung Galaxy. And here at the Lab, Ken Doctor expounded on the iPad as the "missing link" in news' digital evolution.
— Columbia University announced it will launch a local news site this summer focusing on accountability journalism, and the Lab's Megan Garber gave some more details about what Columbia's doing with it.
— The Columbia Journalism Review's Lauren Kirchner had an interesting conversation with Slate's David Plotz about Slate's aggregation efforts, and in response, Reuters' Felix Salmon made the case for valuing aggregation skills in journalists.

The Times has the Pulse (briefly) pulled: Last week, I noted one of the more interesting iPad news apps: The Pulse Reader, designed by two Stanford grad students, is a stylish news aggregator. But on Monday, the app was pulled from the iTunes store based on a claim that it infringes on The New York Times' copyright after some Times folks saw the paper's own blog post about the reader. The app was reinstated the next day, but the debate over copyright, aggregation and mobile apps had already taken off.
The central point of the Times' argument was that the $3.99 app was an illegal attempt to make money off of the Times' (and the Boston Globe's) free, publicly available RSS feeds, rx free Synthroid. (The paper also objected to app's placement of the Times' content within a frame on the iPad.) The Citizen Media Law Project's Kimberley Isbell helpfully broke down the Times' claims and the Pulse Reader's possible fair-use defenses, noting the Times articles' free accessibility and the relatively small article portions displayed on the reader.
Reaction on the web weighed overwhelmingly against the Times: Wired contended that every piece of paid software used to access the Times' site would be outlawed by the paper's logic, while Techdirt's Mike Masnick argued that Pulse was selling its software, not the Times' feeds, Synthroid Price. GigaOm's Mathew Ingram wondered whether the Times was declaring war on news aggregators, and the Sydney Morning Herald reasoned that if the Times is offering its RSS for free, it can't complain when someone designs a reader to view it. Blogging and RSS vet Dave Winer had the harshest response in a post arguing that the Times is in the business of news production, Fast shipping Synthroid, not distribution: "Look, if the Times is depending on stopping those two kids for its future, then the Times has no future."
The reader's creators were just as baffled as anybody about why the app was reinstated, a Times' spokesman apparently tried to pass off the complaint as a mistake, though that response doesn't exactly square with the Times' Martin Nisenholtz's reiteration of the paper's case to paidContent's Staci Kramer. As for whether this claim would apply beyond the Pulse Reader, Nisenholtz said it would be handled "on a case by case basis."
We had plenty of other iPad news this week, too — Jobs made a number of mostly iPhone-related announcements at a conference on Monday, Synthroid recreational, and the Lab's Josh Benton explained what they mean for mobile news. A few highlights: Apple's not too concerned about app-banning controversies, but it is moving decisively on ebooks and its iAd mobile advertising platform. The AP reported that publishers are seeing encouraging early signs Synthroid Price, about wringing advertising dollars out of the iPad, but Ken Doctor went on a wonderful little rant against publishers that are slow to take advantage of the iPad's capabilities. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal's Robert Thomson slammed news orgs' repurposed "crapps" and talked, with the Journal's Les Hinton, Buy cheap Synthroid, about his paper's own iPad strategy. And the iPad faced its first major security issue, as the email addresses of its 114,000 owners were exposed by hackers.
The purpose of the link: A Nicholas Carr post last week ignited a spirited discussion about the relative values of the link, and that conversation continued this week with twin Wall Street Journal columns by Carr and web scholar Clay Shirky debating whether the Internet makes us smarter. Carr said no, using a similar argument to the one he laid out in his earlier post (it's also the central point of his new book): The Internet encourages multitasking and bite-size information, making us all "scattered and superficial thinkers."Shirky said yes, Synthroid without prescription, arguing that the Internet enables never-before-experienced publishing and connective capabilities that allow us to put our cognitive surplus to work for a better society. (That's also the central point of his new book.) Quite a few people, led by GigaOm's Mathew Ingram, posited that both writers were right - Carr in the short term, Shirky in the long term.
Here at the Lab, Jason Fry weighed in on the delinkification debate, giving a useful classification of the link's primary purposes — credibility, readability and connectivity, Synthroid Price. Credibility has become a vital function in today's web, Synthroid for sale, Fry said, though he conceded Carr's point that the link adds to the cognitive load when it comes to readability. Based on Carr's original post, the web design firm Arc90 added an option to its browser extension to convert hyperlinks to footnotes.
The Lab also ran a fantastic three-part series on links by Jonathan Stray exploring four journalistic purposes of the hyperlink (it's essential, he says), examining the way news organizations talk about links (they're a bit muddled) and studying how much those news organizations actually link (not a whole lot, especially the wire services), Synthroid trusted pharmacy reviews. It's a tremendously helpful resource for anyone interested in looking at how linking and journalism intersect.
Debate over Newsweek's bidders: We found out about three bidders for Newsweek Synthroid Price, last Thursday, so last Friday was the time for profiles and commentary, much of it centered on the conservative news site and magazine Newsmax. Newsmax's CEO, Christopher Ruddy, told the Washington Post that it has a number of non-conservative media projects, so Newsweek wouldn't have to adopt a conservative viewpoint to be part of Newsmax's plans. "Newsmax's success is in its business model, Synthroid dose, not just its editorial approach," Ruddy said. Newsweek employees were worried about the prospect of a Newsmax-owned Newsweek, but the New York Times' Ross Douthat, himself a conservative, said Newsmax's influence could be just the nudge Newsweek needs to hit its sweet spot in America's heartland. Chicago magazine profiled another bidder, venture capitalist Thane Ritchie, Synthroid pics, while the Washington Post reported that audio equipment exec Sidney Harman is considering a bid, too.
Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz devoted a column to the publicly acknowledged bidders, exploring the question of why no major players have emerged as bidders and concluding that the lack of interest "amounts to a no-confidence vote not just on the category of newsweeklies, which have long been squeezed between daily papers and in-depth monthlies, but on print journalism itself." Newsweek, via its Tumblr, ripped apart the work of its Washington Post Co, Synthroid Price. colleague, taking to task for a lack of evidence and disputing his claim that the re-envisioned Newsweek is a flop. (That Tumblr is written by Newsweek social-media guru David Coatney, who got a New York Daily Intel Q&A a couple of days later.) Meanwhile, Synthroid natural, New York Times columnist David Carr proposed eight ways to revive Newsweek.
A sports blog network goes local: ESPN has been making a well-documented and initially successful local sports media play over the past year, but this week, a very different sports media company is making a push into what used to be local newspapers' territory. SB Nation, a network of more than 250 fan-run sports blogs founded in 2003 by Tyler Bleszinski and Daily Kos' Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, began rolling out 20 city-specific sports media hubs. Synthroid Price, Until now, the company has focused on team-specific (or sport-specific, in the case of some less prominent sports) blogs, but the new sites will aggregate real-time sports news mixed with fan-generated conversation and commentary.
In a New York Times feature, generic Synthroid, SB Nation's Jim Bankoff said that while his company is trying to provide a ground-up alternative to traditional sports coverage, he'd be happy to collaborate with local newspapers. Former ESPN.com columnist Dan Shanoff echoed that perspective, saying that SB Nation's brand of sharp fan analysis is ripe for media partnerships because "it is something that local newspapers and local cable-sports networks can't or won't do well." Shanoff proposed that SB Nation become a piece of a larger media company's local media strategy, suggesting Comcast as an ideal fit.
Here at the Lab, Is Synthroid addictive, Bankoff gave Laura McGann a handful of lessons media organizations could learn from the SB Nation model, including tightly focused subject matter and maximizing repeat visitors. SB Nation's team-specific focus seems to be a major component in its success, and could have some ready implications for news organizations, as Bankoff noted: “We’re not fans of sports — we’re fans of teams. We’re not fans of television, Synthroid Price. We’re fans of shows.”
Reading roundup: This week, I've got two news items, a few interesting pieces of commentary and one set of tips, purchase Synthroid online no prescription.
— Advertising Age reported that AOL is planning to hire hundreds of journalists for a major expansion into news production. At the local media blog Lost Remote, Cory Bergman, who owns a local news network himself, noted that AOL's hyperlocal outfit Patch is making 300 of those hires and wondered what it will mean for local news.
— Los Angeles Times media writer James Rainey wrote a piece on the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a newspaper that has poured legal resources into stopping people who use its content without permission. The Times' Mark Milian also provided a quick guide Synthroid Price, to what's OK and what's not when reposting.
— Publish2's Scott Karp wrote an intriguing essay on the concept of a Content Graph, in which media organizations collaborate through distribution to enhance their brand's value.
— News business guru Alan Mutter sensed a theme among news startups — too much focus on news, not enough on business — and wrote a stiff wakeup call.
— Two journalism/tech folks, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, Jeff Sonderman and Michelle Minkoff, wrote a bit about what journalism school is — and isn't — good for. Both are worthwhile reads.
— Finally, British journalism David Higgerson has 10 ideas for building good hyperlocal websites. Most of his (very practical) ideas are useful not just for hyperlocal journalism, but for online news in general.

[This review was originally posted at the Nieman Journalism Lab Tramadol No Rx, on June 4, 2010.]
The FTC's ideas for journalism: The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has spent much of the last year listening to suggestions about how they might change antitrust, copyright and tax laws in order to create the best possible climate for good journalism, and this weekend it posted its "discussion draft" of policy proposals to "support the reinvention of journalism." It's a 47-page document, so here's a quick summary of their ideas:
— Expand copyright law to protect news content against online aggregators, including "hot news" legislation, further limits to fair use and mandatory content licenses. Tramadol street price, — Allow antitrust exemptions for news organizations to put up paywalls together and develop a unified system to limit online aggregators.
— Enact direct or indirect government subsidies through a variety of possible means, including a journalism AmeriCorps, more CPB funding, a national local news fund, tax credits to news orgs for employing journalists, university investigative journalism grants, and newspaper and magazine postal subsidies, Tramadol interactions. These subsidies could be paid for through taxes on broadcast spectrum, consumer electronics, advertising, or ISP-cell phone bills.
— Tax code changes to make it easier for news organizations to gain tax-exempt status, Tramadol No Rx.
— Pass various FOIA-related laws to make government data easier to access and search.
It's worth noting that the FTC isn't explicitly endorsing these proposals; the draft reads more as a list of possible proposals that might be worth exploring further. Purchase Tramadol online, Still, j-prof and new media pundit Jeff Jarvis saw a perspective of old-media protectionism running through the draft, as he tore it apart point by point. The FTC is defining journalism through established news organizations and looking to prop them up instead of supporting visionary startups, he wrote. "If the FTC truly wanted to reinvent journalism, the agency would instead align itself with journalism’s disruptors. But there's none of that here." Tramadol No Rx, Jarvis' charges were seconded by two newspapermen, the Washington Examiner's Mark Tapscott and the Los Angeles Times' Andrew Malcolm, who likened the proposals to the government trying to save the auto industry by reviving the gas guzzlers of the 1960s. Steve Buttry of the new Washington news site TBD chimed in, too, online buying Tramadol hcl, homing in on the assertion that newspapers provide the overwhelming majority of our original news.
Free Press' Josh Stearns responded by cautioning against "throwing the baby out with the bath water," noting a few of things that he liked about the FTC's proposals. And at the Huffington Post, Alex Howard praised the FTC's open-government proposals. NYU j-prof Jay Rosen chipped in his own tweet-length proposal for the FTC: "Subsidize universal broadband; fight for sensible net neutrality."
Steve Jobs' pitch for paid news: The folks from the Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital interviewed Apple chief Steve Jobs on stage this week as part of their D8 conference, Tramadol overnight, and Jobs had a few words for the news industry: Yes, he wants to help save journalism, because, as he put it, "“I don’t want to see us descend into a nation of bloggers myself." But if they're going to survive, news organizations should be more aggressive about getting people to pay for content, Jobs said, like Apple did in helping raise e-book prices earlier this year, Tramadol long term.
As it turned out, there was something for everybody to pick apart in that exchange: Ex-Saloner and blogging historian Scott Rosenberg took issue with Jobs' "nation of bloggers" jab, and Steve Safran of the local-news blog Lost Remote said that what Jobs really wants to save is paid, professional journalism, Tramadol No Rx. GigaOm's Mathew Ingram argued that an "iTunes for news" model that Jobs proposed might benefit Jobs, but probably won't work for news outlets. And here at the Lab, Laura McGann pointed out a statement Jobs made elsewhere in the interview that rejected Apple app applicants (sorry, couldn't resist) should simply resubmit their apps, unchanged.

You may not notice the little extra cognitive load placed on your brain, but it's there and it matters." Carr approvingly noted a couple of experiments in leaving links to the bottom of articles.
ReadWriteWeb's Marshall Kirkpatrick responded with a thoughtful look at the purpose of links, Order Tramadol from mexican pharmacy, wondering if they really might be better off at the end of articles, and the Columbia Journalism Review's Ryan Chittum was sympathetic to Carr's point as well: "It’s not a trivial question to ask what the Internet is doing to our attention spans," he wrote. "I know mine, for one, is shot to hell."
Carr, who's had his runins with the Internet cognoscenti in the past, predictably caught some flak for his post too, Tramadol without a prescription, including from Mathew Ingram, who argued that links are at least as much an intellectual discipline for the writer as the reader.
