Doing is knowing: “Sweet Jane” and the Web — Wordyard
What is it that you learn from being a media actor and not just a media consumer? What do you come to know by playing a song and not just listening to it? I don’t think the answer is reducible to bullet points. For me, two ideas stand out. One is: Define yourself if you get the chance — if you don’t, others will be happy to do it for you. The other is: Empathy. Andy Carvin's response: In awe of this essay by Scott Rosenberg. Sweet Jane was one of the first songs I learned how to play on my guitar back when I was around 14. It was a liberating, self-affirming experience that I haven't thought about in decades - yet an experience that I've often felt online while I'm working during a big news event, when everything seems to be coming together and I'm able to craft a story that really resonates with people. Not with an audience, but with real, actual people whose generosity, empathy and authenticity comes through in ways that were rare to experience prior to social media.

When sources can go direct, do we need journalism less or do we need it more than ever? — paidContent
Sources of all kinds -- including politicians -- can become publishers and distribute their own information directly to an audience, without the need for a traditional media outlet. Is that a good thing or a bad thing for journalism?

Streams of consciousness : Columbia Journalism Review
One might assume that a phone, with its small screen, would lend itself only to reading short items. But young readers are willing to consume longer features on their phones as well, often in several chunks throughout the day. “We’ve seen really surprising numbers—almost a quarter of all our traffic is on the iPhone,” says Max Linsky, 32, co-founder of, an aggregator of in-depth magazine pieces.
