Here are two tip sheets from a session at the annual conference of
the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) on “Technology: A User’s
Guide to Software, Hardware and Other Tools Revolutionizing Journalism”:

From Jeff South
From Amy Gahran


And this

“What is happening is, in short, a revolution in the way
young people are accessing news. They don’t want to rely on
the morning paper for their up-to-date information. They
don’t want to rely on a god-like figure from above to tell
them what’s important. And to carry the religion analogy a
bit further, they certainly don’t want news presented as
gospel. ”  Rupert Murdoch

“…the notion of mass media is fast becoming an oxymoron.” (Alan Moore)

” [Over the next 10 years audiences will move away from the linear,
scheduled world where relatively limited number of distributors who
push their content at the viewer….] “we will instead enter a world
where content is increasingly delivered through internet- protocol-
based networks that are non-linear, on-demand and entirely
self-scheduled. In that world, the viewer – not the broadcaster – will
decide what is consumed and how.”
Lord Currie, Royal Television Society Fleming Memorial Lecture, 2004

Merrill Brown, author of a Carnegie Corporation of New York report on
media consumption says, “The future course of news is being altered by
technology-savvy young people no longer wedded to traditional news
outlets or even accessing news in traditional ways.”

“77% of Americans seek their primary news today online.”

“Jonathan Schwartz COO of Sun Microsystems believes that the 1000
bloggers at Sun have done more for his company than a billion $ ad
campaign ever could.”

“With the ease of access to programming that computers now have,
younger viewers in particular (a commercially very attractive group)
may become increasingly infrequent television users. There is for
example, already evidence that television has lost young male viewers
to computers.”
John Ranelagh, Founding Commissioning Editor Channel 4 Television

“The biggest story on Thursday was Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia
that Internet users around the world freely add to and edit.
Yesterday’s entry on the London bombings was amended, edited and
updated by hundreds of readers no fewer than 2,800 times throughout the
day. The entry has photographs, detailed timelines, contact numbers, a
complete translated statement by the jihadist group claiming
responsibility for the attacks and links to other Wikipedia entries.”
Newsweek (July 9,2005)

Jeff Jarvis’s 1st law:
“Give us control and we will use it. Don’t and you will lose us.”
