The Guardian opens up its news agenda: The Guardian took a significant step in the evolution from a closed to open newsroom this week, allowing the public access to a live account of its internal list of planned news stories. In his announcement of the experiment, Buying Cipro online over the counter, Dan Roberts said that it would start with a short trial and that it wouldn't include exclusives, embargoes or legally sensitive unconfirmed material. He also concluded with the rationale behind the bold move: "It seems there are more people wanting to know where their news comes from and how it is made. Painful as it might be for journalists to acknowledge, they might even have some improvements to make on the recipe too."
Here's the newslist — yup, it looks pretty much like a simple version of standard newsroom budget. Roberts talked to Mashable about how helpful Twitter has been in pulling the plan off, and Mathew Ingram of GigaOM praised the move as one other news organizations should emulate, arguing that not only does it benefit the news organization with more ideas and feedback, but that users are beginning to expect this kind of openness, Cipro Mg.
Others were more skeptical, Cipro blogs. Elena Zak of 10,000 Words wondered if the Guardian's experiment is just a dressed-up version of the status quo, since the paper's editors are still maintaining all of the control over what gets published and what doesn't. And j-prof Andrew Cline took issue with Roberts' statement that this move is "a bit of a leap," pointing to a student news project that's opened its coverage plans via Facebook since it began. Cipro treatment, "It was a 'bit of a leap' 10 years ago. Cipro Mg, Today it’s what I’m teaching my journalism students," Cline wrote.
Circulation scandal at the Journal: News Corp.'s series of scandals reached the Wall Street Journal this week with a report that the Journal channeled money through a European company to buy copies of its own paper, in exchange for favorable coverage in the paper's pages. Just before the report surfaced, the man at the center of the scandal, a European executive at Journal parent company Dow Jones named Andrew Langhoff, resigned, Cipro reviews, and the whistleblower was fired in January. The Guardian, which broke the story, also reported that the Audit Bureau of Circulations, the circulation watchdog, Where to buy Cipro, will investigate the issue.
The Journal itself confirmed many of the scandal's elements with its own story published the following day. Poynter's Steve Myers put together a good summary of the story and a quick roundup of the reaction, and Ryan Chittum of the Columbia Journalism Review provided some more reporting on the Journal's coverage of its alleged circulation-inflating partner, Cipro Mg.
Reuters' Jack Shafer noted that the Journal's favorable coverage was in a special section, where fewer people were likely to read it and take it seriously, and that even with the scandal, Wall Street Journal Europe's circulation only reached 75,000, Cipro australia, uk, us, usa. Several observers pointed out, as Chittum put it, that News Corp. keeps showing a habit of covering up its misdeeds rather than being honest about them. The result of this is that everyone will assume the worst about any possible News Corp. Cipro Mg, scandal, according to Reuters' Felix Salmon. Cheap Cipro, The next step, Salmon said, is for the scandals to spread beyond newspapers to Fox or Sky or HarperCollins, which would be truly disastrous for Rupert Murdoch.
Steve Jobs, devotion, and control: The tributes to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs continued to pour in late last week after his death last Wednesday, Cipro gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. Technology Review editor Jason Pontin continued with the theme of Jobs' love for creating products themselves, and tech guru Guy Kawasaki reflected on 12 business lessons he learned from Jobs. The most interesting of those lessons was that customers can't tell you what they need: "If you ask customers what they want, they will tell you, 'Better, Buy Cipro online no prescription, faster, and cheaper;—that is, better sameness, not revolutionary change. They can describe their desires only in terms of what they are already using."
Others reflected on the flood of appreciation for Jobs upon his death and the devotion of Apple fans: TechCrunch's MG Siegler talked about Jobs as "the first truly transformative figure to die in an age of transformative technology, and John Biggs mused about Jobs as a pop-culture artist, Cipro Mg. At Fast Company, j-prof Adam Penenberg wrote about the way the uniqueness of Apple's products have had an addictive effect on us.
Some commentary was more critical, Cipro without prescription. Gawker's Hamilton Nolan pointed to Apple's track record of censorship and authoritarianism and Jobs' brusque personal style, and the Knight Center's Summer Harlow documented Jobs' often strained relationship with journalism. Los Angeles Times media critic James Rainey went deeper into Jobs' controlling behavior toward journalists, Cipro pharmacy, noting, as Dan Gillmor put it in his piece, Apple's "uncanny ability to get normally skeptical journalists to sit up and beg like a bunch of pet beagles."
New and old media within a protest movement: The Occupy Wall Street movement has been one of the biggest ongoing stories in the U.S. Cipro Mg, over the past couple of weeks, featuring heavily in online discussion and garnering increasing coverage from traditional media. The story has some relevance for the future-of-news discussion as well: The New York Times' David Carr looked at the production of The Occupied Wall Street Journal, noting with some nostalgic pride the enduring role of newspapers in protest movements. News designer Mario Garcia was also surprised and pleased that so many young protesters would use various media, including a newspaper, order Cipro online overnight delivery no prescription, as part of their movement's voice.
The Times also examined another media tool being used by Occupy Wall Street protesters — Pastebin, a site created as a way for programmers to save and share code, but now being used as a (mostly) anonymous place to share protest information. Nitasha Tiku of BetaBeat pointed out that Pastebin was also used as a hangout for IRC, Where can i order Cipro without prescription, particularly for the hacking groups Anonymous and LulzSec, well before Occupy Wall Street came on the scene.
Meanwhile, Erika Fry of the Columbia Journalism Review reported on the New York Police Department's efforts to issue and enforce press credentials at the protests, once again raising thorny questions about who is and isn't a journalist, Cipro Mg.
Reading roundup: It's been a somewhat slower week this week news-wise, but there were still a few other interesting issues that are worth keeping up on:
— Facebook released its long-anticipated iPad app this week: The New York Times has some of the basic features (it's free), and All Things Digital detailed the process Facebook developers went through to get their own app and other Facebook-based apps onto Apple devices.
— A few bits on news paywalls: PaidContent reported on Press+'s efforts to sell paywalls to college newspapers (Press+ is the name of the now-bought-out Journalism Online's paid-content system). Poynter's Jeff Sonderman explored how news organizations decide whether to take paywalls down for huge news events, Cipro duration, and NetNewsCheck examined the market-wide effects of one newspaper's paywall in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
— We've heard a lot of talk about "Digital First" lately, particularly from folks within the Journal Register Co. Steve Yelvington, Where can i buy Cipro online, who works within fellow newspaper chain Morris Communications, offered a sharp, succinct explanation of what a Digital First transition entails. One key concept: accepting audience responsibility, not just news responsibility.
— The Lab had a few fantastic pieces this week (no, Josh didn't tell me to write that) — j-profs Nikki Usher and Seth Lewis on what journalism can learn from open-source and maker culture, Megan Garber looking for lessons in failed Wikipedia-like efforts, and New York Times developer Jacob Harris went on a delightful rant against word clouds.

Should Facebook be regulated?: It's been almost a month since Facebook's expansion of Open Graph and Instant Personalization, and the concerns about the company's invasion of privacy continue to roll in. This week's appalling example of how much Facebook information is public comes courtesy of Openbook, a new site that uses Facebook's API to allow you to search all public Facebook updates. (Of course, you'll find similarly embarrassing revelations via a Twitter search, but the point is that many of these people don't know that what they're posting is public.)
We also got another anti-Facebook diatribe (two, Buy Retin A no prescription, actually) from a web luminary: Danah Boyd, the Microsoft researcher and social media expert. Boyd, who spends a lot of time talking to young people about social media, noted two observations in her first post: Many users' mental model of who can see their information doesn't match up with reality, and people have invested so much time and resources into Facebook that they feel trapped by its changes. In the second post, Boyd proposes that if Facebook is going to refer to itself as a "social utility" (and it's becoming a utility like water, Retin A blogs, power or the Internet, she argues), then it needs to be ready to be regulated like other utilities.
The social media blog Mashable has chimed in with a couple of defenses of Facebook (the web is all about sharing information; Facebook has normalized sharing in a way that users want to embrace), but the din has reached Facebook's ears. The Wall Street Journal reported that the issue has prompted deep disagreements and several days of discussions at Facebook headquarters, What is Retin A, and a Facebook spokesman said the company is going to simplify privacy controls soon.
Meanwhile, tech investor and entrepreneur Chris Dixon posited that Facebook is going to use its web-wide Like button to corner the market on online display ads, similar to the way Google did with text ads, Retin A Mg. Facebook also launched 0.facebook.com, a simple mobile-only site that's free on some carriers, leading Poynter's Steve Myers to wonder if it's going to become the default mobile web for feature, or "dumb" phones. But The New York Times argued that when it comes to social data, Facebook still can't hold a candle to the good old-fashioned open web, australia, uk, us, usa.
Are iPad apps worth it?: The iPad's sales haven't slowed down yet — it's been projected to outsell the Mac, and one in five Americans say they might get one — but there are still conflicting opinions over how deeply publishers should get involved with it. Slate Group head Jacob Weisberg was the latest to weigh in, arguing that iPad apps won't help magazines and newspapers like they think it will. Retin A Mg, He makes a couple of arguments we've seen several times over the past month or two: App producers are entering an Apple-controlled marketplace that's been characterized by censorship, and apps are retrograde attempts to replicate the print experience.
"They're claustrophobic walled gardens within Apple's walled garden, Buy Retin A without a prescription, lacking the basic functionality we now expect with electronic journalism: the opportunity to comment, the integration of social media, the ability to select text and paste it elsewhere, and finally the most basic function of all: links to other sources," Weisberg says. GQ magazine didn't get off to a particularly encouraging start with its iPad offerings, selling just 365 copies of its $2.99 Men of the Year iPad issue, real brand Retin A online.
A few other folks are saying that the iPad is ushering in fundamental changes in the way we consume personal media: At Ars Technica, Forrester analyst Sarah Rotman Epps notes that the iPad is radically different from what people say they want in a PC, but they're still more than willing to buy it because it makes complex computing simple. (The term Forrester is using to describe the tablet era, curated computing, Retin A description, seems like a stretch, though.) Norwegian digital journalist John Einar Sandvand offers a similar take, saying that tablets' distinctive convenience will further weaken print newspapers' position. And the Lab's Josh Benton says the iPad could have an effect on the way we write, too, Retin A Mg.
Slipping through the Times' and WSJ's paywalls: New York Times editor Bill Keller gave an update late last week on the plans for his paper's much-anticipated paywall — he didn't tell us anything new, unless you count the news that the wall will start in January 2011, rather than just "next year." But in reiterating the fact that he wasn't breaking any news, he gave Media Matters' Joe Strupp a bit of a clearer picture about how loose the Times' metered model will be: "Those who mainly come to the website via search engines or links from blogs, Retin A treatment, and those who only come sporadically -- in short, the bulk of our traffic -- may never be asked to pay at all," Keller wrote.
In the meantime, digital media consultant Mark Potts found another leaky paywall at The Wall Street Journal. Fast shipping Retin A, Potts canceled his WSJ.com subscription (after 15 years!) and found that he's still able to access for free almost everything he had previously paid for with only a few URL changes and the most basic of Google skills. And even much of that information, he argues, is readily available from other sources for free, damaging the value of the venerable Journal paywall. "Even the Journal can't enforce the kind of exclusivity that would make it worth paying for—it's too easy to look elsewhere," Potts writes. Retin A Mg, Another Times-related story to note: The paper's managing editor for news, Jill Abramson, will leave her position for six months to become immersed in the digital side of the Times' operation. The New York Observer tries out a few possible explanations for the move, Retin A recreational.
Going all-in on digital publishing: Speaking of immersion, two publishers in the past two weeks have tried a fascinating experiment: Producing an issue entirely through new-media tools. The first was 48 Hours, a new San Francisco-based magazine that puts together each issue from beginning to end in two days. The magazine's editors announced a theme, Retin A pics, solicited submissions via email and Twitter, received 1,500 submissions, then put together the magazine, all in 48 hours. Several who saw the finished product were fairly impressed, but CBS's lawyers were a little less pleased about the whole '48 Hours' name, Retin A Mg. Gizmodo had a Q&A with the mag's editors (all webzine vets) and PBS MediaShift and the BBC took a closer look at the editorial process.
Second, effects of Retin A, the Journal Register Co. newspaper chain finished the Ben Franklin Project, an experiment in producing a daily and weekly newspaper and website using only free, web-based tools. Two small Ohio newspapers accomplished the feat this week, Retin A dose, and Poynter's Mallary Jean Tenore took a look inside the effort. Retin A Mg, What she uncovered should be an inspiration for people looking to implement change in newsrooms, especially ones that might be resistant to digital media. A quote from the daily paper's managing editor sums it up: "When we started out, we said, 'We're going to do what. How are we going to do this?' Now we're showing ourselves that we can operate in a world that, even six months ago, used to be foreign to us."
Reading roundup: This week, Retin A pharmacy, I've got two developments and a handful of other pieces to think on:
— Yahoo bought the online content producer Associated Content for $100 million this week. News business analyst Ken Doctor examined what this deal means for Yahoo (it's big, he says), and considers the demand-and-advertising-driven model employed by Associated Content and others like Demand Media.
— If you follow NYU professor Jay Rosen on Twitter, Retin A online cod, you've heard a ton about fact-checking over the past couple of months. A couple more interesting tidbits on the subject this week: Fact-checks are consistently the AP's most popular pieces online, and Minnesota Public Radio has unveiled PoliGraph, its own fact-checking effort, Retin A Mg.
— Poynter's Rick Edmonds compares two of the more talked-about local news startups launching this summer, Washington D.C.'s TBD and Hawaii's Honolulu Civil Beat. He's got some great details on both. Poynter also put together a list of 200 moments over the last decade that transformed journalism.
— If you're up for a quick, deep thought, the Lab's Josh Benton muses on the need for news to structure and shrink its users' world. "I think it’s journalists who need to take up that challenge," he says, "to learn how to spin something coherent and absorbing and contained and in-the-moment and satisfying from the chaos of the world around us."
— And once you're done with that, head into the weekend laughing at the Onion's parody of newspapers' coverage of social media startups.

Apple and Gizmodo’s shield law test: The biggest tech story of the last couple of weeks has undoubtedly been the gadget blog Gizmodo’s photos of a prototype of Apple’s next iPhone that was allegedly left in a bar by an Apple employee. That story got a lot more interesting for journalism- and media-oriented folks this week, when we found out that police raided a Gizmodo blogger’s apartment based on a search warrant for theft.
What had been a leaked-gadget story turned into a case study on web journalism and the shield law. Mashable and Poynter did a fine job of laying out the facts of the case and the legal principles at stake: Was Gizmodo engaged in acts of journalism when it paid for the lost iPhone and published information about it. Social media consultant Simon Owens has a good roundup of opinions on the issue, including whether the situation would be different if Gizmodo hadn’t bought the iPhone.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, Where can i find Armour online, a digital rights group, came out most strongly against the raid, arguing to Wired and Laptop magazine and in its own post that California law is clear that the Gizmodo blogger was acting as a reporter. The Citizen Media Law Project’s Sam Bayard agreed, backing the point up with a bit more case history. Not everyone had Gizmodo’s back, comprar en línea Armour, comprar Armour baratos, though: In a piece written before the raid, media critic Jeff Bercovici of Daily Finance said that Gizmodo was guilty of straight-up theft, journalistic motives or no.
J-prof Jay Rosen added a helpful clarification to the “are bloggers journalists” debate (it’s actually about whether Gizmodo was engaged in an act of journalism, he says) and ex-Saloner Scott Rosenberg reached back to a piece he wrote five years ago to explain why that debate frustrates him so much. Meanwhile, the Columbia Journalism Review noted that the Gizmodo incident was just one in a long line of examples of Apple’s anti-press behavior.
Bridging the newsroom-academy gap: Texas j-prof Rosental Alves held his annual International Symposium on Online Journalism last weekend, and thanks to a lot of people’s work in documenting the conference, we have access to much of what was presented and discussed there, Armour Cost. What is Armour, The conference site and Canadian professor Alfred Hermida devoted about 20 posts each to the event’s sessions and guests, so there’s loads of great stuff to peruse if you have time.
The conference included presentations on all kinds of stuff like Wikipedia, news site design, online comments, micropayments, and news innovation, buy Armour online no prescription, but I want to highlight two sessions in particular. The first is the keynote by Demand Media’s Steven Kydd, who defended the company’s content and business model from criticism that it’s a harmful “content farm.” Kydd described Demand Media as “service journalism,” providing content on subjects that people want to know about while giving freelancers another market. Armour results, You can check summaries of his talk at the official site, Hermida’s blog, and in a live blog by Matt Thompson. The conference site also has video of the Q&A session and reflections on Kydd’s charisma and a disappointing audience reaction. The other session worth taking a closer look at was a panel on nonprofit journalism, which, judging from Hermida and the conference’s roundups, purchase Armour for sale, seemed especially rich with insight into particular organizations’ approaches.
The conference got Matt Thompson, a veteran of both the newsroom and the academy who’s currently working for NPR, thinking about what researchers can do to bring the two arenas closer together. “I saw a number of studies this weekend that working journalists would find fascinating and helpful,” he wrote. “Yet they’re not available in forms I’d feel comfortable sending around the newsroom.” Armour Cost, He has some practical, doable tips that should be required reading for journalism researchers.
Making sense of social data: Most of the commentary on Facebook’s recent big announcements came out last week, but there’s still been plenty of good stuff since then. Armour from mexico, The tech blog ReadWriteWeb published the best explanation yet of what these moves mean, questioning whether publishers will be willing to give up ownership of their comments and ratings to Facebook. Writers at ReadWriteWeb and O’Reilly Radar also defended Facebook’s expansion against last week’s privacy concerns.
Three other folks did a little bit of thinking about the social effects of Facebook’s spread across the web: New media prof Jeff Jarvis said Facebook isn’t just identifying us throughout the web, it’s adding a valuable layer of data on places, things, ideas, where to buy Armour, everything. But, he cautions, that data isn’t worth much if it’s controlled by a company and the crowd isn’t able to create meaning out of it. Columbia grad student Vadim Lavrusik made the case for a "social nut graph" that gives context to this flood of data and allows people to do something more substantive than "like" things. Australia, uk, us, usa, PR blogger Paul Seaman wondered about how much people will trust Facebook with their data while knowing that they’re giving up some of their privacy rights for Facebook’s basic services. And social media researcher danah boyd had some insightful thoughts about the deeper issue of privacy in a world of "big data."
The Wall Street Journal goes local: The Wall Street Journal made the big move in its war with The New York Times this week, launching its long-expected New York edition, Armour Cost. The Times’ media columnist, David Carr, took a pretty thorough look at the first day’s offering and the fight in general, and Columbia j-prof Sree Sreenivasan liked what he saw from the Journal on day one.
Slate media critic Jack Shafer said the struggle between the Journal and the Times is a personal one for the Journal’s owner, Rupert Murdoch — he wants to own Manhattan, Armour online cod, and he wants to see the Times go down in flames there. Meanwhile, Jeff Jarvis stifled a yawn, calling it “two dinosaurs fighting over a dodo bird.”
Along with its local edition, Cheap Armour no rx, the Journal also announced a partnership with the geolocation site Foursquare that gives users news tips or factoids when they check in at certain places around New York — a bit more of a hard-news angle than Foursquare’s other news partnerships so far. Over at GigaOm, Mathew Ingram applauded the Journal’s innovation but questioned whether it would help the paper much.
Apple and app control: The fury over Pulitzer-winning cartoonist Mark Fiore’s proposed iPhone app has largely died down, but there were a few more app-censorship developments this week to note. MSNBC.com cartoonist Daryl Cagle pointed out that despite Apple’s letup in Fiore’s case, they’re not reconsidering their rejection of his “Tiger Woods cartoons” app, where can i buy Armour online. Political satirist Daniel Kurtzman had two of his apps rejected Armour Cost, , too, and an app of Michael Wolff’s Newser column — which frequently mocks Apple’s Steve Jobs — was nixed as well. Asked about the iPad at the aforementioned International Symposium on Online Journalism, renowned web scholar Ethan Zuckerman said Apple’s control over apps makes him "very nervous."
The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta also went deep into the iPad’s implications for publishers this week in a piece on the iPad, the Kindle and the book industry. You can hear him delve into those issues in interviews with Charlie Rose and Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.
Reading roundup: We had some great smaller conversations on a handful of news-related topics this week.
— Long-form journalism has been getting a lot of attention lately. Online buy Armour without a prescription, Slate’s Jack Shafer wrote about longform.org, an effort to collect and link to the best narrative journalism on the web. Several journalistic heavyweights — Gay Talese, Buzz Bissinger, Bill Keller — sang the praises of narrative journalism during a Boston University conference on the subject.
Nieman Storyboard focused on Keller’s message, in which he expressed optimism that long-form journalism could thrive in the age of the web, Armour pharmacy. Jason Fry agreed with Keller’s main thrust but took issue with the points he made to get there, Armour Cost. Meanwhile, Jonathan Stray argued that “the web is more amenable to journalism of different levels of quality and completeness” and urges journalists not to cut on the web what they’re used to leaving out in print.
— FEED co-founder Steven Johnson gave a lecture at Columbia last week about the future of text, especially as it relates to tablets and e-readers. You can check it out here as an essay and here on video. Armour cost, Johnson criticizes the New York Times and Wall Street Journal for creating iPad apps that don’t let users manipulate text. The American Prospect’s Nancy Scola appreciates the argument, but says Johnson ignored the significant cultural impact of a closed app process.
— Two intriguing sets of ideas for news design online: Belgian designer Stijn Debrouwere has spent the last three weeks writing a thoughtful series of posts exploring a new set of principles for news design, and French media consultant Frederic Filloux argues that most news sites are an ineffective, restrictive funnel that cut users off from their most interesting content. Instead, he proposes a “serendipity test” for news sites.
— Finally, if you have 40 free minutes sometime, I highly recommend watching the Lab editor Joshua Benton’s recent lecture at Harvard’s Berkman Center on aggregation and journalism. Benton makes a compelling argument from history that all journalism is aggregation and says that if journalists don’t like the aggregation they’re seeing online, they need to do it better. It makes for a great introductory piece on journalism practices in transition on the web..
