My Top5 series turned out to be quite a hit, thanks to references in other blogs, like Mindy McAdams’, so i’ll take this opportunity to put the list in one place:
These posts could have been more developed but i think they got to the point. These are complex issues and important in this time of change, but lets not wast time with the small stuff and come forward with more solutions than problems.
Megan Taylor listed a few other quarrels that are as important as the ones i posted about. I’m not doing another series about these, but if someone does, please let me know. Thanks.
Estes posts podiam estar mais desenvolvidos, mas penso que estão claros. São assuntos complexos e importantes nestes tempos de mudança, mas não vamos perder tempo com picuinhices,mas apresentar soluções em vez de problemas.
A Megan Taylor listou mais algumas disputas que são tão importantes como as que eu postei. Como não vou fazer outra série sobre estas, se alguém o fizer, digam. Obrigado.
My additions (in the comments):
7. It’s Google’s Fault
Others (in the comments):
7.5. Google should pay restitution for driving traffic to my news site
10. “X is not journalism!” and “Journalism is not Y!”
I think these conversations pop up every few months, though I haven’t kept track of who is having them. Is it the same people over and over? Or, do different people encounter the same questions as the printies move online? Can we build an F.A.Q. for newbies, listing the different points to each argument?
Having the same conversation over and over again does not progress make. We need to move beyond these questions and find new ones.
Some new questions:
How can we support journalism? Do organizations need to turn non-profit? Or get their work funded by the community? What online advertising models are being used and are they effective? How can news organizations collaborate?
