I haven't worked with an editor who was more creative or determined in pursuing digital transformation than Matt DeRienzo:

Portable computer comparison -1st to recent (1981-2014)
Yesterday, I posted about the 1983 bankruptcy of the company that made the first successful portable computer, the Osborne 1. I thought it might be fascinating to do a “quick and dirty” spec comparison between the Osborne 1 and today's Apple MacBook Pro.

Possible Sale? Citing sources he said are familiar with the process, Ken Doctor of Outsell, who first reported the company's owner, hedge fund Alden Global Capital, was looking for an exit, predicts Digital First Media could be dissolved by next March.
Analysts predict that Digital First Media will sell its newspapers in regional chunks, including one covering Colorado.

An update of the SPJ Code of Ethics was long overdue (I called for an update in 2010). I'm glad they updated, but I wish they had provided more leadership for journalism in the update, rather than just following (at a bit of a distance): 
The Society of Professional Journalists adopted a new Code of Ethics Saturday at is meeting in Nashville. I am pleased that SPJ updated a code that I described four years ago as profoundly outdated...

Incredible Footage Of An Explosive Volcanic Eruption Captured in New Guinea

A video recently captured by an Australian couple shows the beauty and destructive power of a volcanic eruption. Mount Tarvurvur located in Papua New Guinea erupted on August 29. Debris and ash from this event sent a plume going thousands of feet into the sky, with the eruption continuing for several days afterwards.

Andrew Meyer on how San Jose police killed a woman for holding a power drill, then proceeded to confiscate cameras from witnesses, including ordering one man to delete his footage.

Tech Day One in Kindergarten
Last year when I started as a K-5 tech teacher I had no idea what tech instruction would look like in Kindergarten.  I had some pretty good ideas about 4th and 5th grade, a few bold ideas about 2nd and 3rd grade, but as I focused on younger grades I had no ...

Mark Loundy has been a journalist since 1976, first serving as personal photographer for Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, an intern at the L.A. Times and later as a staff photographer for United Press International in the U.S. and in Europe. He was the Photo Assignment Editor for Thomson L.A. News Group until 1995.

He joined the world of social media in 1997 as Senior Editor for GeoCities. In 2000, he helped found the financial news program Yahoo! FinanceVision. He currently runs MediaWoorks, a video production and media content consultancy.

From 1990 to 1997, he was Telecommunications Chairman for the National Press Photographers Association, overseeing that organization's operations on the Worldwide Web, CompuServe and on the Internet. He was awarded the J.Winton Leman Fellowship award by the NPPA for "outstanding service in the interests of press photography and for outstanding technical achievement in photography." He was a founding member of the Business Practices Committee and also served as the committee chairman.

While serving as Telecomm Chair, he founded the NPPA Web site and the online discussion list, NPPA-L. He was a three-time faculty member of the Electronic Photojournalism Workshop. He has moderated and served on numerous panels on digital ethics, copyright and media law.

He also writes and speaks on future media technology and created several of the earliest interactive news prototypes in the early 1990s.

Mark, his wife, former newspaper editor Patricia Wolf, and their three children, live in San Jose, California.
