Those auto-calls seem to be worse than ever.
American Journalism Review highlighted my “social journalism manifesto” in their round up of news about the media. http://ajr.org/2014/04/03/ajr-news-wrap-end-derp-gawker-swearing-new-york-times/
A nice pop in recognition for my social journalism analysis. A really nice piece.
A few lists:
“The Dutch revolution in journalism: all newspapers behind one paydike.” by Alexander Klöpping https://medium.com/p/a2031594e430

I had been on a tear with Quora, with one blog post alone generating 5,000+ reads. (About my youthful misadventures as a NY Times clerk.)
Google responded by placing my Quora “About Ed” page on the first page of “Ed Sussman” search results. Then, for reasons I don’t understand, Quora dropped to page two, then disappeared entirely. Not anywhere. Even when I search the exact URL on Google, it doesn’t show up. The “About” page has been banished from search. I’ve broken some invisible Google rule.
The only thing that occurs to me is that when Slate re-ran the popular Times answer on their site, Google punished the repetition. In any case, here’s the link – maybe it will re-appear on day.
I’m getting more accustomed to the Blogger interface. Still incredibly limited compared to WordPress (let alone Buzzr.com) but OK for simple blogging, particularly mobile app.
My trusty WordPress blogs continue: Publish or Perish by Ed Sussman at http://edsussman.com (for long pieces) and the one you’re reading, Ed Sussman Quick Links (for short pieces).
