The Future Journalist

The Future Journalist
technology

When I went to lunch with the editor of a media magazine recently, we talked about the evolution of her magazine to the web and I remember how she was adamant that there was no way she was going to make her journalists have to publish directly to their website (when they build one).... Oh actually, we do something different: we get you lot involved in many different ways - from submissions, to comments, to ideas to design.Anyway, I bring this up because Jeff Jarvis pulls out some quotes from an interview with Gruner + Jahr boss Bernd Kundrun, where Bernd suggests that in future journalists will work much like bloggers:"The journalistic skill in the future wil be the moderation of ‘user-generated content,’ exactly like earlier information and data bases in the internet…I believe that journalism must find a new definition.
