I finally wrote something about the death of Gigaom, and what I think it means (and doesn't mean) https://medium.com/@mathewi/gigaom-is-dead-long-live-gigaom-65cb06caff9b
Last week, the place I’ve called my online home for over five years — a site that has been one of the leading tech blogs…

I seem to have stuck a chord with my piece 10 days ago on weaning myself off Microsoft, Apple, Google et al. It's nearing 200,000 views. In case you missed it:
I’m done sending my money and data to corporations I don’t trust

As doctoral student Frederik De Boer pointed out in a recent blog post on some of the new-media sites like BuzzFeed and Fusion, if you don't focus on a specific market or target a specific kind of reader, you run the risk of blending in with everyone else
One of the best things about the web is that it has meant an explosion of choices when it comes to media, especially recently — with the rise of BuzzFeed, the launch of sites like Vox and Fusion, and blog networks like Gawker. And of course we still have all the old places too, like…

As Columbia Journalism School researcher Maxwell Foxman points out in a research paper, media companies could learn a lot from the game-playing approach that sites like BuzzFeed take towards their content

Social platforms like Facebook and Snapchat are trying hard to become publishers or to host content from media companies, but one of the platforms that has been quietly doing this for years now -- and continues to grow that side of its business -- is LinkedIn

Here are some pics I took on the Caribbean cruise that I went on last week with Rebecca Ingram and some friends -- including +Dave Stone and +Steve Goodliffe and +Brenda Parsons  did an airboat tour of the Everglades, then sailed to Cozumel and drove dune buggies and dove in mini-subs, then sailed to Key West and drove some Jet-Skis around and ate key lime pie. Awesome trip!

Snapchat is a brand new and red-hot mobile app aimed at millennials, but it has a surprisingly old-fashioned media model -- and that could help it take over as television becomes less appealing to advertisers

The power of amateur or "citizen" journalism becomes obvious when you look at two recent examples: one being the tracking of military activity in Ukraine, and the other the effort by residents of one of Rio's biggest slums to document police violence
Are we living in a golden age for journalism, or is it the Dark Ages? There’s nothing that gets a group of media types going like that question, which is kind of an updated version of a perennial favorite: “Are bloggers journalists?” Obviously, the kind of upheaval that leads to mass layoffs at papers like…
