National Public Radio's Digital Makeover
FTA: 'This is an organization that's in transformation into becoming a fully functional news content organization, not just a radio company. As part of that, we've been training our journalists to become multiplatform journalists, not only radio—not that radio is not important to our core.'

Circulation Revenue Only Thing Growing at Newspapers : CJR
This is a good 3-part article (link to part 1). I don't agree with everything Ryan is saying, but it's very much worth discussing.

Jeffrey Rosen vows never to "blog" again
Great article! -- FTA: 'Isn't it amazing -- and extremely revealing -- that even as recently as five years ago, the Jeffrey Rosens and TNRs of the world could do things like this, and routinely did them, without any meaningful response or check of any kind? '

PressThink: "Where's the Business Model for News, People?"
FTA: 'It’s worth going back to the first business model in reportage: the merchants, traders, and other “men of affairs” in early modern Europe who employed letter-writers in cities where the man of affairs did not happen to be located. These letters—the most famous example is the Fugger Letters from the latter 16th century—conveyed much the same news that a trader would want today: prices, conditions for trade and transport, what the local authorities were up to, rumors of war, court news and gossip, natural disasters, and anything the people were seriously buzzed about.'

Quote: Sony Pictures CEO on the value of the internet | Boing Boing Gadgets
FTA: '"I'm a guy who doesn't see anything good having come from the Internet," said Sony Pictures Entertainment chief executive officer Michael Lynton. "Period." -- I'm tracking it down (hopefully the whole panel discussion) for context, but it does appear that it was intended as read. (albeit primarily with a copyright maximalist frame of reference). Wow.

Xark!: Axioms for 21st Century Media
Good summary, though actually from another article by Dan (that linked to this one): 'Semi-structured information, created in the process of reporting what we traditionally think of as news and stored in ways that make both facts and contexts easy to retrieve, represents my best candidate for a robust new revenue stream that could support quality, sustainable journalism well into the future. My dictum: Donate the stories, sell the data.'

Facebook and Procrastination : CJR
FTA: 'The crux of the problem centered on reporters’ apparent ignorance of the terms “correlation” and “causation,” two relatively common technical research terms that are as different as night and day.' -- Very, very sad. Professional journalists "FTW!"</sarcasm>

Wikipedia Grappling with Deletion of - Thomas Crampton
FTA: 'Wikipedia - one of the highest traffic websites on the Internet - makes reference to a large number of IHT stories, but those links are now all dead. They need to delete them all and find new references or use another solution.' -- Nicely done, NYT

Jefferson on Politics & Government: Quotes re: Freedom of the Press
'A press that is free to investigate and criticize the government is absolutely essential in a nation that practices self-government and is therefore dependent on an educated and enlightened citizenry. On the other hand, newspapers too often take advantage of their freedom and publish lies and scurrilous gossip that could only deceive and mislead the people. Jefferson himself suffered greatly under the latter kind of press during his presidency. But he was a great believer in the ultimate triumph of truth in the free marketplace of ideas, and looked to that for his final vindication. '

Post Reporter Says It’s Not His Job to Check the Accuracy of People He’s Quoting
FTA: ' Someone tell Media Matters to get over themselves and their overblown ego of righteousness. We reported what Olympia Snowe said. That’s what she said. That’s what Republicans are saying. I really don’t know what you want of us. We are not opinion writers whose job is to play some sorta gotcha game with lawmakers.'

iPods, First Sale, President Obama, and the Queen of England
FTA: 'Of course, no one thinks that copyright owners are going to send lawyers after either President Obama or the Queen over this. But none of us should want a world where even our leaders--much less the rest of us--can't figure out how copyright law operates in their daily lives.'

Facebook's photo storage rewrite
FTA: 'Facebook photographs are viewable by anyone in the world aware of the full asset URL. Each URL contains a profile ID, photo asset ID, requested size, and a magic hash to protect against brute-force access attempts.' -- Zoinks! That does actually appear to be the case. I hope that's a big magic hash. And how do you ungrant permission?

In Baltimore, No One Left to Press the Police
This is a good article, but I think David Simon may misinterpret some of the "new media" spin. Clay Shirky's recent "Thinking The Unthinkable" essay is recommended reading. We're not dancing on the grave of journalism; we're standing at the bedside of newspaper reporting, because...well, it's dying. As Shirky notes, the relationship between journalism and print newspapers is real, but accidental. One is dying, and we need to keep the other. And no, no one knows exactly how that's going to work yet. But the dying is going to happen regardless, so we might as well start trying to figure it out.

Joss Whedon's Plan to Monetize Internet Content (Watch Out, Hollywood)
FTA: (Whedon) 'I'm not a business man. I'm also not a techie. My ideas on how to monetize the Internet for independent productions are ideas that other people have already had. But I am in a position to try to take advantage of them in such a way that we get a toehold in this medium and [establish] a system of creating some original content before the giant companies sweep in and fence it all off.'

January Carnival of Journalism - How to support journalism online financially
FTA: 'Community funded reporting is one angle which I am bias towards and I had to get my peace out. The real answer: we don't know. I think there will be lots of splintering and every news organization will have to figure this question out for themselves. There are no more cookie cutter business models.'

Umphrey’s McGee puts a new twist on selling music
Interesting: "The jam band Umphrey’s McGee has come up with a clever way to promote their latest CD, Mantis. The band is incentivising their fans to help promote the CD by unlocking 8 tiers of free material based upon the number of pre-ordered CDs. The more people who pre-order, the more free material is unlocked for everyone." (found via Pho)

Marvel Digital Comics, not perfect, but worth the money!
Damn...just $60/year (billed annually...or $10/month), and at first glance, it looks to be quite a hunk of the Marvel catalog. I need to peruse the available comics more closely, but this might acually be worth thinking about.
