Do Mark Hamilton | From Mark Hamilton


Links para o fim de semana | Links for the weekend

Mark Hamilton tem sempre boas sugestões. Da sua lista de quarta-feira escolhi duas: “The newspaper disease” por Roger Black e uma lista de definições de Jornalismo (a minha favorita é a do Charlie Beckett, ando a ler o livro dele, e recomendo que o façam também). Depois tropecei com um interessante post “Blog como subversão do Jornalismo padrão” do blog brasileiro Coffee’n’Cigarrettes. Amostras e links abaixo. Bom fim de semana.

Mark Hamilton always has great suggestions. From his Wednesday Squibs i chose two: “The newspaper disease” by Roger Black, and a list of nine definitions for journalism ( my favorite is by cahrlie Beckett, i’m reading his book and i recommend you to do the same). Then i came across with an interesting post called “Blogs as a subversion of standard Journalism” from the brazilian blog Coffee’n’Cigarrettes. Samples and links below. Have a nice weekend.

INSIDE AND OUTSIDE of the paper, there’s no confusion about who the paper belongs to. Not the editors who built it, not the reporters who fill it with articles, but the men who bought and paid for it. – David Carr

This was the killer graph of David Carr’s mournful recent column, At the Journal, the Words Not Spoken.” There are two big assertions here—ones that helped cause the great slide in the newspaper business. First, Carr implies newspapers are for the newsroom, not for the readers. And second, he suggests that there’s something wrong with the owners of a paper actually running it.

These are wrong ideas, ones that have tripped up journalism over the last 50 years, setting a fluid, dynamic business like concrete, into a stiff, unresponsive institution. J-school defined the methodology; the unions dictated the job descriptions; and the big chains, with their organization charts and greed did the rest.

The newspaper disease, Roger Black


1. Networked says Charlie Beckett

‘A kind of journalism where the rigid distinctions of the past, between professional and amateur, producer and product, audience and participation, are deliberately broken down. It embraces permeability and multi-dimensionality.’ (Beckett via
8. A conversation says Dan Gillmor

‘Tomorrow’s news reporting and production will be more of a conversation or a seminar.’

Journalism: what is it now and where next?


A internet é hoje não apenas um meio de comunicação, como os jornalistas esperavam que ela fosse, mas também um meio de relacionamento. Entre estas novas formas de se relacionar proporcionadas pela internet, podemos citar os blogs. Estes são considerados fenômenos da comunicação e não fenômenos jornalísticos.

A História do Twitter | Twitter History 101

A Business Week dedicou um artigo à evolução do Twitter desde que apareceu há 14 meses. Sim, já foi assim há tanto tempo. A história do Twitter está explicada num pequeno slideshow, e como podem ver no gráfico acima, o crescimento tem sido impressionante.

Business Week dedicated an article to Twitter’s evolution since it started 14 months ago. Yes, it’s been that long. The history of Twitter is well explained in a short slideshow, and as you can see in the chart above, it’s growth has been impressive.

Can the fledgling microblogging service become a social media powerhouse to rival giants like Facebook—or will it be gobbled up?

View Slide Show

The key question today isn’t what’s dumb on Twitter, but instead how a service with bite-size messages topping out at 140 characters can be smart, useful, maybe even necessary. Here’s why I’m looking. In the last few months, the traffic on Twitter has exploded, growing far beyond its circles of bleeding-edge tech enthusiasts and hard-core social networkers.
