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.


What does it take to grow the world’s most popular blog?

It takes commitment and a ton of hard work to grow the world’s most popular blog, as you learn after reading this an interesting piece. It’s written by a former Time magazine reporter who is now blogging for Techcrunch.

It’s instructive, I think, to see how different the news reporting process is for a “blogger” than a “journalist.” I’m not sure we’ll recognize either of those labels in a few years, but discover a new moniker that more accurately describes the demands and skills related to digital news publishing.
