Future of News Media
A long but excellent article by steve johnson on the future of news media. I especially like the diagram of the news creation / distribution supply chain.

... another article by clay shirky ... and a third one There is only Us on, where I fond this very interesting paragraph:
If a central element of the undoing of the traditional press is unbundling — the diminishing power of jointly packaging advertising and news, the atomization of formerly coherent monopoly news products into info-snippets on blogs and aggregators — a central element of journalism’s renewal will be connection — our ability and responsibility to all play shifting, complementary roles in a potentially vast system of journalism.
The transformation will be painful but the long-term future is bright!
