How The New York Times’ ‘Snow Fall’ project unifies text, multimedia | Poynter.
The discussion of how the piece was composed demonstrates that it is more like vid and simulation inserted into the text stream that structures the story, in a very conservative, none-risky way. "better design" here means using the genre-traditional structure to guide the placement of other media. Media are added on not integral to. That's not future. What's revealing is that the designers are basing their choices on traditional text-encompassed values.

Why “Bloggers vs. Journalists” is Still With Us
An interesting article nteresting on two counts: the topic amd thesis he's taking (bloggers want to be journos and journos want to be bloggers), and how he's presenting his preparation: crots with commentary that constellate into multiple patterns. Nice.

Why The Daily Is So Yesterday
from tidBITS, good commentary on the yesterDaily. "The Daily has been compared to USA Today, which made a splash when it debuted in 1982 with its challenges to the traditional newspaper model." but it's lamer than USA Today because we now read from multiple sources.

From Indymedia to Wikileaks weighs in. "The battle over Wikileaks, and the journalistic questions that it raises, are genuinely new developments — but they’re new developments grounded in a few long term trends and a history stretching back nearly two decades.The impact of WikiLeaks on journalism is more an impact of degree than of kind; what’s happening isn’t entirely new, but it is happening on a greater scale than ever before.

The Times’ Paywall and Newsletter Economics « Clay Shirky
Even Murdoch can't change the commodity market. "online, the Times has stopped being a newspaper, in the sense of a generally available and omnibus account of the news of the day, broadly read in the community. Instead, it is becoming a newsletter, an outlet supported by, and speaking to, a specific and relatively coherent and compact audience."

Transparency brings us to reliability the way objectivity used to."

MediaShift . Embedded at NYU::Old Thinking Permeates Major Journalism School | PBS
Embedded student reports on NYU: "NYU does not offer the kinds of classes I want. It continues to focus its core requirements around learning how to work your way up the traditional journalism ladder. Here is the thinking I find here:

1. Get an internship at a magazine or newspaper. “This is good for your resume.”
2. Bring the New York Times to class. The hard copy. “It’s the only way to get the news.”
3. Learn how to write for a magazine or newspaper. “Writing for blogs or websites is not journalism.”
4. Become an editor at a magazine or newspaper. “This is the only respectable position.”
