Journalism 2.0
How to survive and thrive in the digital age

This blog is a companion to the book I have written. It will teach current (and future) journalists the skills they need to do better journalism with the help of digital technology. More information about the book.


The outsourcing of newspapers has begun

It’s inevitable that outsourcing would visit journalism eventually. Some newspapers have been using freelance copy editors who work from home for years. So maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that the Miami Herald is sending some of its work to India.

This is all part of Journalism 2.0—and Newspapering 2.0. Some of the changes the come with the information age are good, others are not. The goal is to make it through this period so we can create Journalism 3.0.
