Facebook: a tale of two media models

See on Scoop.itJournalism and the WEB

the future is coming and we have somehow convinced ourselves that forward-thinking technology companies, by learning so much more about people’s behavior and habits and knowing more about them than they do themselves, will somehow, with undreamed-of efficiency, sell them something. And these social media savants will be able to do this without having to rely on the much more mysterious and hit-and-miss process of producing good stories.

Perhaps. Just don’t call it media.

Os jornais, os velhos portais e o tempo da rede

The pace of technological change will not abate, and to think of our current time as a transition between two eras, rather than a continuum of change, is a mistake. There has been tremendous disruption in journalism, but there are upsides: everyone has a printing press, there are no gatekeepers [or at least new gatekeepers], and journalism can and will be better than in the past.

O diálogo é o vento na arte de navegar

O diálogo é certamente uma arte difícil. Significa esclarecer as questões em conjunto, mais do que conduzi-las por meio de seu próprio caminho; multiplicar as vozes, mais do que reduzi-las; ampliar as possibilidades, mais do que ter em vista um consenso total; perseguir o entendimento, em vez de visar a derrota do outro; e tudo isso deve estar animado pelo desejo de manter a conversa fluindo. Dominar essa arte consome um tempo terrível e não promete tornar nossa vida mais fácil. No entanto, promete torná-las mais excitante, mais útil aos outros, e transformar nossas escolhas profissionais em uma viagem de descobrimento contínua e interminável.
