These are my links for January 6th through January 7th:
- Mainebiz - A new freesheet practicing the Guerilla journalism style is starting in Portland.
- How the newspaper industry tried to invent the Web but failed. - By Jack Shafer - Slate Magazine - The claim: Newspapers were early to get online, they just didn't get on the open web soon enough. The problem: Newspaper structure is inherently flawed for internet consumption. Ad rates alone cannot sustain the newsroom, newspapers have become distracted by video as their answer, and stock price is too much of a concern. There's probably more to add to that list too.
- Public Press FAQ | The Public Press - Here's a radical idea: share your published articles with Public Press, a non-profit that receives its money NPR fashion, so there are no ads.
