#Journalism agenda: “Time for Journalists to Encrypt Everything”

In Uncategorized on March 23, 2017 at 13:02

If you don’t have revenue, you don’t have a product: It’s one of the first things I tell my clients. With the news media facing extreme economic pressure in many countries, I was keen, in my recent report for the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, to focus not only on editorial innovation but also the commercial innovation that is supporting new formats.

I found news organizations around the world answering the questions of how to monetize radically distributed content strategies, grappling with changes in social media use, and finding a new way to connect with their young audiences when Facebook no longer reached them.

Even within the narrower parameters of public spaces, debates which might lead to issues around accountability and transparency are not hugely popular in the public eye.

Snapshots of daily life: before and after.This is the third interview in a series on the dilemmas and contradictions researchers undertake in conducting research in the Middle East.

I grew up with dictionaries. I have had my own dictionary for as long as I can remember.

I am usually looking for some word I haven’t heard of, or an etymology of a word I was unaware of, but curious about, and sometimes just to remind myself of words I already know. There continues to be something alluring about the book, and the form of the book as a vessel of knowledge.

Dijitalleşmenin gazeteciliğe etkisi, ülkemizde birçok yönüyle incelendi ancak geleneksel ya da yeni medya tabanlı gazetecilik girişimlerinin ayakta kalabilmesi için hayati önem taşıyan iş modelleri konusu görece az irdelenmişti. Bu çalışma bir boşluğu doldurma niyetini taşıyor. İş modeli kavramsallaştırmasını olabilecek en geniş çerçevede ele alıyoruz.Geleneksel finansman kalıplarının zayıflamasıyla birlikte yeni iş modelleri arayışları hayati bir önem kazanırken biz de bu arayışları belgelendirmek ve bu süreçte doğacak beyin fırtınasıyla bu arayışlara katkıda bulunmak istedik. Çalışmamız hem akademik içerikler hem de sektör bazlı yaka incelemelerini içeriyor. Bu sayede konu üzerine yeni düşünmeye başlayanlara da, alanda zaten çalışıyor olanlara da destek olacağına inanıyoruz. Vaka incelemeleri ve söyleşilerin çok daha fazla ve kapsayıcı olmasını istedik. Kitaba yetişmeyen ve gelecekteki çalışmaları içerecek bir web sitesi de kurduk ki ( [Site daha güncellenmeye başlamadı ama takibe başlayabilirsiniz;)] içeriğimiz hem yakınsamalı medyanın ruhuna uygun olsun hem de bu alandaki çalışmaları daha da zenginleştirmiş olalım.
