PressThink’s new design and the little design feature some call “Winerlinks.”
Online News Association: what are the master narratives of Rebooting the News? For that is what we are going to discuss with the people who come to see the live taping of our show in Washington.
Dave participates in Jay’s class and reads eight news executives grappling with the rebooted system of news, followed by ten bloggers and new media thinkers doing the same thing.
Juan Williams and NPR: I believe Brian Stelter’s piece is the first time “view from nowhere” made the New York Times. Or the first without quotes, at least. Pressthink on it. Jay was on NPR’s On Point about it.
The fun of blogging and the sources going direct: Virgin America, power plugs, and Jim Fallows.

SXSW 2011 - Jay Rosen I wrote my essay, Bloggers vs. Journalists is Over, in 2005. And it should be over. After all, lots of journalists happily blog, lots of bloggers journalize and everyone is trying to figure out what’s sustainable online. But there’s something else going on: these two Internet types, amateur bloggers and pro journalists, are actually each other’s ideal "other." A big reason they keep struggling with each other lies at the level of psychology, not in the particulars of the disputes and flare-ups that we continue to see online. The relationship is essentially neurotic, on both sides. Bloggers can’t let go of Big Daddy media— the towering figure of the MSM — and still be bloggers. Pro journalists, meanwhile, project fears about the Internet and loss of authority onto the figure of the pajama-wearing blogger. This is a construction of their own and a key part of a whole architecture of denial that has weakened in recent years, but far too slowly. The only way we can finally kill this meme—bloggers vs. journalists—and proceed into a brighter and pro-am future for interactive journalism is to go right at the psychological element in it: the denial, the projection, the neuroses, the narcissism, the grandiosity, the rage, the fears of annihilation: the monsters of the id in the newsroom, and the fantasy of toppling the MSM in the blogosphere. That is what my solo presentation will be about: a tale of the Internet, told through types. Lisa Williams will moderate and run the backchannel.
Robert Scoble: Is the tech press needed anymore? A revealing post. He writes…
“So, what’s up with the headline I picked for this blog? I’m noticing that lots of app developers are seeing HUGE adoptions without being pushed ANYWHERE but on Apple’s iTunes app store. That’s how MyTown got so big. It’s also how Instagram got so popular so fast. FastMall’s CEO told me that’s where almost all of its users came from.
“Do app developers need the press anymore? They tell me yes, but not for the reason you might think. What’s the reason? Well, they suspect that Apple’s team is watching the press for which apps get discussed and hyped up.”
Sure enough, the TSA story (introducing “patdowns,” and “don’t touch my junk” to the vernacular) went viral, as we predicted in RBTN #72. So did one of Jay’s tweets on it.
Jay returned to video for Resentment News (and More Blondes Per Square Foot): Explaining What Fox News Channel Is. Should this experiment continue?
Scripting News: The Design Challenge. How to make the river-of-news style aggregator more attractive to the eye. Any takers?
Tumblr’s $25 million, the “freemium” model, and the competition for engineering talent.
Dave’s got a love affair going with Hacker News. What’s that about?

As the countdown to Christmas begins we look at some of the books that would make the best presents for children. We take personal tips from our Twitter followers, and get the expert view from Guardian children’s books editor Julia Eccleshare.
We find out how humour makes the words go down in an interview with Andy Stanton, author of the best-selling Mr Gum books, and we talk politics with the poet and broadcaster Michael Rosen, who explains why some books that we, as adults, remember with affection might not be right for the children of today.

As Dave said Dec. 3rd, “We’re having a Rebooting The News moment here with WikiLeaks.” Indeed. Now we now how the open Net comes crashing down.
- First came the denial of service attacks. (Dave: “How do we know that?”)
- Next, Amazon Web Services kicked Wikileaks off its cloud servers.
- Then it was EveryDNS.net., which stopped serving the domain wikileaks.org
- Then Tableau Software removed data visualizations Wikileaks had running there.
- Then PayPal started choking off the air supply: donations.
- The U.S. Library of Congress even got into the act, shutting down access to Wikileaks at its terminals.

The Local East Village launched since our last show, and Dave re-introduced hi aggregator for East Village feeds, http://east-village.org/.
Last week, Dave asked Jay what his problem with public radio’s Marketplace program was. Jay wrote about it.
What to do about comments.
Dave has been running a series at Scripting News: Rebooting RSS. It started with How to Reboot RSS.. Jay: “I especially liked The Architecture of RSS.”
NewTwitter has been rolling out. Dave and Jay both have it now. And what’s distinctive about it? The signs of Twitter moving into place to become a media company, a seller of attention.
And along those lines…. “Twitter needs to decentralize or it will die.” So says a former Twitter developer, Alex Payne, who was responsible for the developers platform. A key passage:
A large part of the reason I left Twitter was a fundamental philosophical difference that I couldn’t reconcile, either for myself or the company. I believe that Twitter as a medium is and should be distinct from Twitter as a business. Put another way, there’s an important difference between lowercase “t” tweeting and uppercase “T” Twitter, just as with democrat and Democrat.
This is not a new sentiment. Others have expressed it for years, in calls for a decentralized Twitter and attempts to build just that. For a time, I dismissed those missives as faxes from the crazy uncle lunatic fringe of the Internet technology community: the standardsistas, the neckbeards, the open sorcerers, the people who believe that all things must be free and open regardless of context. I came to the conclusion on a different path, but I came to it nonetheless.
- When you don’t own the platform, or you’re not in a situation where no one owns the platform: Seattle Times Describes Difficulty in Getting Huskies iPhone App Approved.
“It’s quite a new experience to cede control over distribution to an organization that we can’t even talk to. As anyone who has produced an iPhone app knows, once the code is finished, you go through a detailed process of submission to the Apple store online. And then you wait.
“In our case, it took five full working days for an Apple reviewer to even look at our app. That much we expected. But when the reviewer rejected our app, we were surprised and bewildered. One issue had to do with Apple’s disclaimer requirements for promotional sweepstakes or contests in apps.
“The other — more troubling — issue concerned ‘features, namely team logos and terminology in the application name and keywords, that infringe on rights owned by NCAA.’ We had used team logos and the word ‘husky’ in contexts identical to ones we commonly use in print and online, and we felt we were fully within our rights to use them as we had in the app.”
It goes on and on. Clearly, Apple has them by the cojones. And everything will be done on Apple’s time. Meanwhile, the San Jose Mercury News reported last week some speculation that Apple may want from publishers 30 percent of subscription revenue and 40 percent of ad revenue for iPad apps.
