With the launch of The Upshot from the New York Times, there are now three major sites going after the “explanatory journalism” market. Each has its own unique flavor, but is the market for that kind of content really large enough to support that many sites?

Instead of a paywall around its existing content, Slate is trying to convince its biggest fans to become members of a community — membership that will bring them additional benefits, including preferential access to writers and editors at the site. But will it be enough to move the revenue needle?

An appeals court has ruled that a blogger is a member of the media for the purposes of defamation law — another decision that helps support the idea of protecting acts of journalism, rather than just specific people who are defined as professional journalists

Mark Zuckerberg says his approach to mobile consists of breaking the monolithic Facebook app down into smaller, more discrete experiences — ones that may look and feel nothing like the big blue app or main website, and may even allow for different identities

The New York Times is launching The Upshot, a new site that its editor says will offer a combination of data journalism and explanatory reporting — and also try to go head-to-head with new high-profile projects like Ezra Klein’s Vox and Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight

Summary: It would make sense for Google to talk to Square about acquiring its slick but money-losing mobile payments business, but good luck determining who talked to who about what.

Any company interested in mobile payments would do well with such an acquisition. Apple and Google (or even Microsoft...ew) could use such a well-accepted method in their arsenal.

Many media outlets look down on comments, and some have killed them off entirely, arguing that they are filled with bad behavior and therefore worthless. But there is value in listening to one’s readers, and social media doesn’t fill that need completely

It would help if people used their real persona's instead of hiding behind fake names or nicks.

There are more ways than ever to measure traffic, readership, attention and engagement with our content. But all that means is there are even more things to distract us from the important questions about who we are trying to reach and how
