Novos modelos de negócio | New Business Models

newspaper_next_715.gif

O que é que mudou a face do mercado da informação? A possibilidade de escolha. Os utilizadores puderam passar a escolher os conteúdos, em vez de apenas os veículos desses conteúdos.

Neste post de Paul Lamb são apresentadas cinco formas de as empresas de comunicação abordarem essas transformações, assentes nos conceitos inerentes aos novos públicos: personalização, comunidade, mobilidade, hiperlocalidade.

Paul Lamb cita ainda um extenso relatório chamado Making the Leap Beyond ‘Newspaper Companies’, que pode ser considerado como o guia de sobrevivência das empresas de comunicação.

What has changed the face of the news market? The ability to choose. Users were able to choose content, instead of only choosing the vehicles of that content.

In this post by Paul Lamb are introduced five ways for the communication companies approach those transformations, based on the concepts inherent to the new audiences: costumization, community, mobility, hyperlocality.

Paul Lamb also refers to an extensive report called Making the Leap Beyond ‘Newspaper Companies’, which may be considered as the survival guide for media companies.

O nosso romance com os jornais | Our romance with newspapers

day-0106.jpg

“This gents had only a coffee and newspaper for breakfast. When he finished his coffee then he read his newspaper. And exactly before 8 AM he left for work or wherever. I took this picture in diner where I used to go to have my breakfast which is scramble eggs, bacon and home fries with coffee. Location: Shay’s Diner in St. Clair Ave. and E.40 St.”
Cleveland Daily Photo

Durante os largos períodos de tempo em que estive desempregado, aprendi a apreciar e a viver sem os pequenos luxos da vida: comprar livros, jantar fora, ir ao cinema. Mas de todos, o que mais senti falta foi o de comprar o jornal de manhã cedo e ir tomar o pequeno almoço num café.

Era o princípio ideal, o momento de arranque para enfrentar o dia. Um café, as notícias no nosso jornal favorito, o primeiro cigarro da manhã. E ao nosso lado alguém fazia o mesmo, partilhavam-se secções entre grupos de amigos, discutia-se as páginas de desporto, emprestava-se um exemplar a quem não tinha comprado. Os próprios cafés têm dois ou três jornais para os clientes, por isso, mesmo com pouco dinheiro, ainda dava para ir beber o café e ler o jornal, antes de o passar para o próximo. Fazem-se caras de desânimo quando alguém já fez as palavras cruzadas, ou não se despacham a ler.

A nossa relação com o papel de jornal é na verdade um caso amoroso, é algo de sensual na forma como viramos as páginas e ainda sentimos o cheiro da tinta, na maneira como nos aproximamos dos outros, como os avaliamos pelo título que trazem debaixo do braço. É uma relação efémera com cada exemplar que se renova no número do dia seguinte, quando os outros encontram destino a cobrir montras de lojas vazias, a embrulhar louças numa mudança, a forrar o chão de uma divisão a ser pintada. Por isso não acredito na morte dos jornais.

Mesmo com o aumento de estabelecimentos que oferecem wifi, são poucos os que andam com um portátil para todo o lado, na maior parte do mundo. Com a internet, abriram-se as possibilidades, mas a comunidade que a usa ainda é uma minoria, apesar do seu crescimento exponencial. Os números das tiragens estão a descer, mas não estarão reduzidos a zero tão cedo. Há dois anos atrás houve que escrevesse que os jornais não estavam a morrer mas a cometer suicídio. Há uma semana atrás essa ideia foi repetida. E o declínio dos jornais começa há 80 anos com o aparecimento da rádio.

Como em qualquer actividade competitiva, nem sempre os melhores sobrevivem, mas desta vez é possível que isso aconteça, desde que não se subestime o público. Todos queremos notícias, e a maioria gosta de ser fiel ao que conhece. Somos criaturas de hábitos. E o mais divertido é que muitos desses hábitos são partilhados por muita gente de diferentes países, culturas e origens.

Por isso é muito interessante ver como o Ryan Sholin e a Mindy MacAdams falam da forma como “usam/usavam” os jornais em papel. É um acto ritualizado, que já não praticam, mas eles são ainda a minoria. A maioria são os infoexcluídos, os que não têm um computador, os que continuam a precisar que os jornais e os jornalistas cumpram a sua função: informar, criar uma consciência colectiva, alertar para os abusos e questionar as fugas de quem é responsável pelo bem estar comum, relatar e manter a identidade de uma comunidade local, nacional, ou social.

Os jornais precisam de evoluir dentro dos novos media apenas para manter essas funções, como mantiveram depois do aparecimento da rádio e da televisão. Hélder Bastos, na entrevista que me concedeu, diz que “os catastrofistas sempre negligenciaram aquilo a que Roger Fidler chama a mediamorfose, ou seja, a capacidade que os media têm de se adaptar ao aparecimento de novos media. Acresce que, pelas mais diversas razões, nem toda a gente se “converte” aos novos media.” Trata-se apenas da sobrevivência do mais apto, e como sempre, os mais aptos são os que melhor se adaptam.

E acredito que antes de chegar o dia em que se blogará o epitáfio do jornal em papel, o nosso nome será impresso nas páginas do obituário. O que espero que seja realmente daqui a muito, muito tempo.

Esta semana, saiam cedo, comprem o jornal no quiosque, bebam um bom café, e aproveitem o momento. Entretanto, contem-me qual é a vossa relação com o jornal em papel.

During those long periods of time i was unemployed, i learned to appreciate and live without the small luxuries of life: to buy books, go out to dinner, go to the movies. But, of all, the one that i missed the most, was to buy the newspaper early in the morning and have breakfast at a cafe.

It was the perfect beginning, the starting moment to face the day. A cup of coffee,the news in our favorite newspaper, the first cigarrette of the morning. And next to me, someone did the same, suplements were shared among groups of friends, there were arguments over sports pages, copies were lended to strangers who didn’t bought one. The cafes have two or three newspapers for the costumers, so, even with little money, i could have some coffee and read the newspaper, before passing it to the next costumer. Faces frowned when we discovered the crosswords were already made, or people were taking too much time reading.

Our relationship with the print paper is actually a love affair, it’s something sensual in the way we turn the pages and we still smell the ink, in the way we approach the others, how we evaluate them by the title they carry under their arm.It’s a short lived relationship that we have with each copy, that renews itself with the next day’s edition, when all the others find their fate covering the windows of empty stores, wrapping dishes when we move, covering the floor of a room ready to be painted. That’s why i don’t believe in the death of print.

Even with the increase of places that offer wifi, there are few who carry laptops around, in most places in the world. With the internet, the possibilities were open, but the community that uses it is still a minority, albeit it’s exponential growth. The circulation numbers are decreasing, but they won’t reach zero so soon. Two years ago someone said that the newspapers aren’t dying but commiting suicide. A week ago that idea was repeated. And the decline of newspapers started 80 years back when radio appeared.

Like in any other competitive activity, not always the best survive, but this time that may happen, as long the public is not underestimated. We all want news, and most of us stick to what we know. We’re creatures of habits. And the fun part is that many of those habits are shared by many people from different countries, cultures and origins.

That’s why it is so interesting to see how Ryan Sholin and Mindy MacAdams talk about the way they “use/used” print paper. It’s a ritualized act they no longer exercise, but they’re still the minority. The majority are the infoexcluded, the ones who don’t own a computer, the ones who still need newpapers and journalists to keep to their job: to inform, create a collective conscience, alert to the abuse and question the subterfuges of those responsible by the common welfare, to report and maintain the identity of a local, national or social community.

 

Newspapers need to evolve within the new media only to keep those features,just like they did after the coming on the scene of radio and television. Hélder Bastos, in the interview he gave me, says “the catastrophists always neglected what Roger Fidler named as mediamorphosis, in other words, the capability that media have to adapt to the appearance of new media. To this adds, for several reasons, not everybody “converts” to the new media.” It’s just the survival of the fittest, and like before, the fittest are the ones who better adapt.

 

And I believe that long before the day when the print newspapers epitaph will be blogged, our names will be printed in the obituary pages. Which i sincerely hope it will happen a long, long time from now.

This week, get out early, buy the newspaper at the kiosk, drink a cup of good coffee, and enjoy the moment.

Meanwhile, tell me about your relationship with print newspaper.

JEECamp Digest

Rick Waghorn, MyFootballWriter @ JEECamp

O que se diz do JEECamp? Depois de uma curta análise por aqui, falámos com Paul Bradshaw,que nos deu as suas impressões sobre o evento que organizou, e recolhemos algumas das ideias expostas em alguns blogs de quem participou.

What is the word on JEECamp? After a short analysis from our side, we’ve talked with Paul Bradshaw, who gave his impressions on how it went, and we gathered a few ideas, taken from the blogs of some parcipants.

 

Entrevista com Paul Bradshaw | Paul Bradshaw interview

Did JEECamp lived up to your expectations?

Mostly, yes. People seemed to find it very useful, contacts were made, and a lot of exchange of ideas and experience. I was disappointed we didn’t get a broader representation from mainstream media, but on the flip side surprised at how many entrepreneurs we got. I hear there’s nothing like this in America either so I’m pleased we’re providing an alternative platform for this cottage industry. I wish I’d had a chance to enjoy it more myself but spent a lot of time making sure it and coverage was running smoothly.

What is the main conclusion you get out of it?

That there is a need for JEEcamp. There are similar events aimed at the corporate MSM but nothing for indie journo startups. That there is a cottage industry we don’t often hear about, and that that industry has the potential to creep up on the larger news organizations. That even the most cutting edge people at mainstream news orgs are behind the people launching startups.

There were no easy answers, and there were raised new tough questions too. How much an event like this was needed to put in touch all of these different people and their ideas?

Enormously. For the reasons mentioned above.

Will the questions in next JEECamp be the same, or the challenges will be different? Are things moving that fast?

I think it will be very different. Things are moving very fast indeed – if we’d done this last year the questions would have been around video and blogging. This year Twitter and mobile obviously dominated. Next year – who knows? I’m considering making it about enterprise and experimentation so that a broader audience attends.

When can we expect another JEECamp?

I’m hoping to do one in January 2009, but I’d also like to see if anyone wants to do a US JEEcamp or Europe JEEcamp before then.

 

JEECamp Digest

JEECamp was a bit of a mixed bag, to be honest, but that’s not a criticism and even the disapointing stuff was illuminating in its own way. If I took away one thing it was this. If, when it comes to awareness of how online stuff is going to affect their industry, there are two sorts of journalists, those who get it and those who, for whatever reason, are unable to get it, then the distance between these two is so great that the definition of “journalist” is pretty meaningless.”

Hubdub is a game,Pete Ashton’s Blog

 

“Pour se lancer, les journalistes doivent regarder leur carnet d’adresse comme une liste d’annonceurs potentiels. Eux seuls ont les moyens d’amener et de faire fructifier ces micro-budgets sur le web.

JEEcamp: La monétisation est un sport de combat, Nicolas Kayser-Bril

 

“The very last point from JEEcamp was also VERY relevant:

“Now is the best time to be a journalist. The demand is for journalists who WANT to tell a story. All of the contacts, features, etc, are in place to become a great journalist. This is THE time to be a journalist. It doesnt get much better than this.”

Reflections on JEEcamp , Azeem Ahmad

“Entering the afternoon session at JEECamp, delegates have been invited to pitch their ‘journalism enterprise’ ideas to the floor.

Kyle McRae, who left photo agency Scoopt, which he founded, only a week ago, raised the idea of Qotz (working title), a community site, where online articles and content will be submitted and filtered on the basis of ‘pull quotes’.”

 

JEEcamp: pitch from Kyle McRae, ex-Scoopt , Laura Oliver Journalism.co.uk

 

“Relying on one revenue stream isn’t enough: 400,000 pages impressions over three months to MFW generated a paltry $180. Google is not the piece of advertising kit needed by local sites, Waghorn said.”

JEEcamp: online revenue models – the Waghorn way, Laura Oliver Journalism.co.uk

 

“And something really stuck out. The idea of a reporter as a brand, and of creating a community around oneself as a reporter. This isn’t original thinking by any means, I’m sure, but certainly struck home with me. Particularly with the idea of the news gathering process being transparent to improve readers’ access to; and views of; the journalists they read. “

Response from JEECamp (1),Tom Scotney

 

“Online journalism is all about making links, but the online editors at Jeecamp say their journalists find it difficult to visit other sites, make comments or connect with other communities. Everyone has a Facebook page now but journalists are curiously reluctant to socially network with their news. This might be because journalists still think in terms of individual blogs rather than online networks.”

” The event saw a number of leading journalists, bloggers, commentators and innovators in attendance, discussing the challenges facing today’s new media publishers, particularly in light of digital media replacing the role of conventional print publications.”

JEEcamp, looking back., SoGlos.com News

 

“The day ended with a panel discussion of some of the emerging issues. As I looked out at the people gathered it occurred to me that in ten years time one half would probably have bought out the other half.

The question is, which half will be which?”

Efeitos da web no Jornalismo | Web effects on journalism

A AP article on the unexpected effects of the web on journalism
According to David Bauer, the changes brought upon the news scenery by the internet aren’t exactly the ones that you’d expect: instead of a broadening in themes and content democratization, it seems the the focus has narrowed; if, on one hand, the websites are no longer the “online morgues” for the printed news, and many pros are embracing the new formats, on the other, companies want less journalists for more tasks; and citizen websites and blogs are more closed to commentary than corporate media sites. To read and reflect.
Um artigo da AP fala dos efeitos inesperados da web sobre o jornalismo

De acordo com David Bauder, as mudanças que a net trouxe para o panorama informativo não são propriamente as esperadas: em vez de uma maior abrangência de temas e democratização do conteúdo, parece que o foco se estreitou em vez de alargar; se por um lado os sites deixaram de ser as “morgues online” dos jornais, e muitos profissionais estão a aderir aos novos formatos, por outro as empresas querem menos jornalistas para cada vez mais funções; e os sites e blogs criados por cidadãos são mais fechados aos comentários do que os sites de orgãos de comunicação. Para ler e reflectir.
