What Ate the Periodical? A Primer for Web Geeks
“Newspaper” and “magazine” are labels that speak to format and topicality, and plenty has been written about both. But they also speak to how those entities are structured as businesses. What, if anything, did the internet change about those things? And what qualities endure despite the shifting tides? Let’s take a look.

If you're a journalist in the trenches, chances are you're too busy and too poor to attend (and your publisher is too poor to send you to) SXSW Interactive, the annual to-do where all the smart, well-funded bastards go to interact with other smart, well-funded bastards who can afford to think for five minutes about how to get us all out of this goddamn mess we're in.

Google News founder Krishna Bharat
“When journalists think they’re producing content, pure and simple, they’re wrong,” Bharat said — in the same way that a Starbucks barista thinking she simply produces coffee is wrong. “You think you’re there for coffee, but you’re really there for the full experience” — the music, the collegiality, the reading space, the aroma, the brand. You pay for coffee, sure; but “the whole experience is what counts.”

Flipboard's Mike McCue: Web format has 'contaminated' online journalism
"It's generally agreed that the Web isn't a very good place to read. With constantly changing, amorphous formatting and an invariably ad-choked feel, the Web has never been able to replicate the quiet, unencumbered pleasure of reading in print."

10 Best Data Visualization Projects of the Year
Data visualization and all things related continued its ascent this year with projects popping up all over the place. Some were good, and a lot were not so good. More than anything, I noticed a huge wave of big infographics this year. It was amusing at first, but then it kind of got out of hand when online education and insurance sites started to game the system. Although it's died down a lot ever since the new Digg launched.

Journalism Warning Labels
"It seems a bit strange to me that the media carefully warn about and label any content that involves sex, violence or strong language — but there's no similar labelling system for, say, sloppy journalism and other questionable content."

Don’t Mistake Your CMS for a Development Platform
Scott Klein writes, "While the Post is far from the only news organization decrying an old, inflexible content management system, CMSes shouldn’t be an obstacle to building news applications. Even the best CMS was designed to do a different job and — good or bad — shouldn’t be mistaken for an expressive, open development platform."

Joe Zeff asks, "what if the publishing industry helped to defray that cost, bundling an iPad with a multiyear subscription to hundreds of newspapers and magazines? It’s a short-term investment that could pay off handsomely, and one of many options that should be considered in order to lure a new generation of readers to a new world of possibilities."

Final edition: Twilight of the American newspaper—By Richard Rodriguez
"When a newspaper dies in America, it is not simply that a commercial enterprise has failed; a sense of place has failed. ... We will end up with one and a half cities in America -- Washington, D.C., and American Idol. We will all live in Washington, D.C., where the conversation is a droning, never advancing, debate between "conservatives" and "liberals." We will not read about newlyweds. We will not read about the death of salesmen."

Clay Shirky on journalism’s future: Revolutions get worse first – Center for Sustainable Journalism
“In real revolutions things get worse before they get better. .. One of the bad things I think is going to happen is, I think civic corruption is just going to rise for towns and regions of under about half a million people. Which is to say, I think the old model of the newspaper is going to break faster than the hyperlocal civic reporting can come in its place.”
