@kcarruthers Some journos don’t want to change? Diddums. Plenty of farriers were happy fitting horseshoes once, too. “Adapt or STFU” I said.

@kcarruthers I argue that the new media free up journalists from having to shackle themselves to industrial-age mass-media factories.

@kcarruthers You could argue that the printing press freed up the scribes from just copying stuff to writing new things to be printed…

@bronwen Heh! Hey what would I know? I’m only IN the damn thing! LOL! (But “only” a supplementary essay, not the core thesis.)

@DavidFeng I truly LOVE the idea of a franchise store being “harmonised” by Santa. :) “Harmonised” is SUCH a useful word!

@bronwen I only knew it was complete when I saw you tweet the Oz story today! :) http://is.gd/8KQZ Such is “The Future of Journalism” ;)

@bronwen I have idea when/how the MEAA report will be distributed, guessing online since it’s a lobbying docuemnt? [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bronwen

@earleyedition MEAA/TFOJ website says the report is launched Wed. Did the Oz go early?

Whenever I encounter the Newington College horde I wonder why people pay $22k to produce self-centred spoiled brats.

Errand to the Sydney CBD, then Newtown for pre-dinner writing. Still moderately fnord crap.

@trib THIS is the marketing stream? Sounds like the whole thing is marketing (from where I sit at home).

@kcarruthers Are you suggesting there are doubts over whether I am the Height of Evolution? Hmmm…?

@firstdogonmoon I do like the Magical Bandicoot of Not Making Stupid Mistakes. http://is.gd/8JWs He/She would be very handy.

@duncanriley @Nickhodge I think the mugshots are pretty special. http://is.gd/8JIL “So what were you boys up to last night…?”

@BreakfastNews Ahem. 3 ATMs attacked is hardly “ATMs across Sydney”. Don’t exaggerate. “Old people died across Sydney overnight” is truer.

@marclehmann And, gee, my business is having a tough time atm, can has big handout of $ just ‘cos kthxbai.

RT @marclehmann: Is the US gov going to bail out employees or just shareholders? This all feels very peasants and kings to me.

Watching @BreakfastNews, realising why I don’t watch broadcast TV news. With all the feeds on my screen, a linear narrative desn’t cut it.

Pre-ermerges. Aircraft overhead awaken me. Once awake I don’t go back to sleep. It’s not a “common” cold, but “popular”. I’m not common.

@ssharwood [nods] I did an advertising-funded weekly street mag startup back in 1991-92, I know how it’s done. Hard work!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@kcarruthers That said, I expect to have a fully-monetised user-centric business ecology around our offerings soon, going forward.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers Um, Mr Sharwood deigned to use the word “monetise” first. I merely follow his example. ;) I am a complete puppet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@ssharwood Building the new mastheads will take time. Pol;itico.com is 2 years old, a baby. Unless Rupert’s Secret New Thing is socmed?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@ssharwood @kcarruthers I don’t expect the journos will do the “monetising” [ugh!] in socmed any more than they sell ads in the paper now.

@kcarruthers A website, not a newspaper or news agency, has the biggest team covering the White House. http://is.gd/84ZB Golden Age, I say.

@kcarruthers The career path thing is the core. [Some] journalists confuse “journalism” with “having a job at an established media factory”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers In my essay in the MEAA/TFOJ Report I argue that journalism is entering a new golden age.
