Some pre-show notes:
Dave gave a presentation at the New York Times. What did he say?
Hacks and hackers comes to New York. Dave was there. Anything rebootish about it?
Nate Silver joins the New York Times: what do we think?
The sources go direct: an Internet Week event at NYU, followed by an open newsroom. What’s it all about?
Apple has WWDC this week: reflections?
We will be doing this show at ONA in DC is October, 2010.
Jay decided to stop writing about Facebook and privacy. Why?
The Block-by-block community news summit, an event in September that Jay is co-organizing. The research for it includes this list of local news start-ups. We’re going to bring those entrepreneurs together.
Jay: two problems with the news system that I have been thinking and talking about a lot lately… 1.) Mixing up context-dependent and context-independent news; and 2.) Mixing up “level one” users and “level four” users.
Finally, a question I hope we can visit sometime on RBTN: what is Yahoo? I have a hard time understanding their strategy or even their definition.
