Das Q-Wort - Europäisches Journalismus-Observatorium - EJO
«Qualitätsjournalismus ist höchst wichtig, ganz im Gegensatz zu Qualitätsmusik und Qualitätsmalerei.[...] Die goldene Epoche bestand darin, dass es auf Redaktionen nur großkalibrige Geistesathleten gab, die messerscharfe Analysen des Zeitgeschehens lieferten. Sie waren glänzend ausgebildet und gut bezahlt. Sie arbeiteten ohne den heutigen Zeit- und Verwertungsdruck, dafür mit Alkohol im Büro. Die unvermeidliche Folge war Qualität.

Das muss lange her sein. Ich stieg 1975 in den Journalismus ein. Zeitungen druckten damals massenhaft dieselben Agenturmeldungen ab. Communiqués von Parteien und Verbänden kamen ungefiltert ins Blatt. Recherche und investigativer Journalismus waren eine überflüssige Luxusdisziplin. Die Journalisten kuschten vor den großen Tieren. Parteinähe war wichtiger als Objektivität.

Vor 1975, so erzählten mir die damaligen Kollegen, sei es noch schlimmer gewesen.»

20 Jahre Online-Journalismus (MMvB, faz.net, 11.9.2014)
Sehr schöner Rück- und Rundumblick, am Ende leider auch wieder nur mit dem Rezept «Mehr». Der Job, sich zurechtzufinden, ist der des Lesers und von Lehrpersonen? - «Sie haben in den vergangenen Jahren nahezu alles bekommen, was sie sich nie vorgestellt hatten. Informationen im Sekundentakt, ein unendliches Videoangebot, aufwendig recherchierte Storys in wunderbarer multimedialer Aufmachung, ganz umsonst und allzeit zugänglich, jetzt auch am Handgelenk oder in der Brille. Nun müssen sie nur noch eines lernen: mit dieser ungeheuren Informationsvielfalt auch umzugehen. Zu vertrauen, wem man trauen kann. Und zu misstrauen, wer Misstrauen verdient.
Keine Schule bringt das bisher den Kindern bei, keine Bildungsstätte den Erwachsenen, kaum ein Medium seinen Lesern.»

Slate is hiring: Apply to be our director of strategy and audience development.
«Slate is hiring a director of strategy and audience development. Ideal candidates will be voracious users of the Web, dedicated students of its ongoing evolution, and lovers of online journalism who want to help one of the oldest news sites on the Web continue to be one of the most innovative. The ability to see around corners and anticipate opportunities for growth is a prerequisite. Applicants should have experience working with Web publications to boost traffic, expand audience, and develop new products and editorial programs. Applicants should be social media sages and Omniture wizards—they should check Chartbeat before they brush their teeth in the morning. The job demands a smart, funny, inventive editorial sensibility and a keen understanding of Slate’s voice and approach to the news. It also demands an ability to think and act entrepreneurially and to push the magazine in new directions, whether toward an untapped area of coverage, a growing social media platform, or a promising partnership with another publication or business. Applicants should be both creative thinkers and rigorous analyzers of data and be as comfortable presenting to a room of editors as a room of developers. Good management skills, good team play, and good humor also required. The position is full time, on staff, with benefits. Slate welcomes candidates from all backgrounds. The position can be located in New York or Washington, D.C. »

NYT Innovation Report: Deja Vu All Over Again for Digital News - AJR.org
Gnadenloser Kommentar zum Innovation Report der NYT und den Innovationsproblemen von Zeitungshäusern generell.

«In other words, for all the challenges facing The Times and other news organizations, all the issues with declining circulation and advertising, all the problems with upstart competitors attacking what used to be a near-monopoly business, all the difficulties of trying to speed up to what we used to call Internet time, the biggest barriers to change have been tribal customs and ancient systems, along with stubborn newsroom denizens and well-meaning-but-clueless managers. The result: a change-resistant, technology-poor culture that just can’t get out of its own way.»

Scarcity Is A Shitty Business Model (avc.com, 15.1.2012)
»restricting access to content is a bad business model in the age of a global network that costs practically nothing to distribute on.«

»If they went direct to their customers, offered their films at a reasonable price (say $5/view net to them), and if they made their films available day one everywhere in the world, I can't see how they wouldn't make more money.«

In a nutshell: »This is what happens in digital distribution. Prices come down, markets expand, customers see lower prices and broader availability. Producers do better. Everyone else does worse.«

»they lose transactions every night, to piracy, to competing forms of entertainment, and possibly to apathy brought about by frustration.«
