  1. Podcast about front pages

    A 14-minute podcast about front pages, tweets, getting fired, rivers.

    The users drifted away from the NYT front page, yet the organization remains structured around it. In many ways it’s the front page, and the sections, that define who they are. And then the front page was no longer wanted.

    News has always been a river. The front page model was necessary when the pulse to the news was daily. But behind that, the news has always been a flow. The reporters take the flow and turn it into a front page.

    To even observe that there has been a fundamental change is enough to get you in trouble, and most people don’t want any more trouble than they have. This is esp true for employees. And most people at the Times probably like their jobs and want to keep them. That’s why the fundamental change has to be realized outside their organization, made to seem friendly and then at some point can be adopted by them.

    Every org has to deal with that. For Twitter the whole place is structured around the 140-char limit. No one knows what lies on the other side, and who wants to even find out! Things are okay. And also, as with the Times, most people who work at Twitter want to keep their jobs.

    But — and here’s where things break — with users, the front page and the 140-char limit are not sacred. They are comfortable. But no one will fire you for saying you think otherwise.

  2. Online News Startups Attract Big-Name Talent: Forum | KQED Public Media for Northern CA

    Some of the media’s biggest names are leaving traditional outlets to venture into digital journalism. Since July, writers like The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein, The New York Times’ Nate Silver and The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg have left to join or co-found media startups like Vox, FiveThirtyEight and Re/code. Will these departures and new websites reshape the future of news?

  4. Gillmor Gang 10.11.13: Context Matters

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — took out their devices and slapped them down on the table. By any measurement, the Context Wars are well under way. But neither Apple or particularly Google seem to realize what Twitter does — that notifications are the way to roll up both armies in the battle for user engagement.

    Twitter’s direct message lab is producing experiments in personalized notification of group swarming. Right now it looks very tentative and potentially too much of nothing. But the more companies and even political parties reform around these new dynamics of user cloud attention, the more likely a meaningful way forward out of the swamp of gerrymeandering gridlock. Yeah, we talked some shutdown too.
