The new norm is that any presentation you give or panel you're on will be live-streamed by someone in the audience using Periscope or Meerkat. Is this happening to you now? #mediadisruptus

"Sensor journalism" is being taught. Hurray! Great to see journalism education thinking about the future. #mediadisruptus  
We made it! The students made their final project presentations on Monday and the moment was bittersweet for me. I was happy to see how far we have come as a class and sad to see our time together ...

"We can start by discarding the lingering notion that paper will remain for long a big part of what we do. It will not. For a while, yes. But it will not last." (About friggin' time someone at his level in the newspaper industry unequivocally stated that obvious truth.) #mediadisruptus

I agree with most of the arguments in this piece. Publishing original content to other platforms, including Facebook (and Snapchat, and Medium), can be a positive thing. Doesn't mean you have to or should abandon or lessen presence on the web. #mediadisruptus   #journalism

This is not good! If companies always actually told the truth (yeah, right), perhaps this would make sense. Get real, Google: this will lead consumers to corporate propaganda over legit news reporting. ... (Not that news reporters don't get it wrong sometimes. But corporate statements too often have more in common with propaganda.)

With Richard Gingras at Google as head of news, I can't help but be optimistic that this will get righted -- or there's a good explanation different than what it appears.

No fee to access content, but pay for right to leave comment(s). I'm coming around to thinking this is a rational business model for online media. #mediadisruptus

There’s this pet peeve of mine about disaster coverage by news media, and it’s been the case again in early coverage of the earthquakes in Nepal and devastation in the city of Kathmandu. Of course, photojournalists and news videographers shoot images of…

Great point, Steve. It's also a less-intrusive way for journalists to cover the scene without consuming resources at the disaster site.

Science fiction suggests some futures for news and media-tech #mediadisruptus

The best creators of science-fiction are great at conjuring up entertaining and sometimes plausible futures. Indeed, the best of them have envisioned future technologies that eventually became reality. (The classic example: Star Trek’s Communicator. Many…

This may be a harsh assessment of the newspaper industry, but it rings oh so true. ... The same thing is oh so likely to happen to commercial TV news soon enough, unless TV-news executives learn the lesson that newspapers have been kind enough to teach. (Unlikely.) #mediadisruptus
Digital First Media and McClatchy, the second and third-largest newspaper holding companies, are going south fast. What happened?
