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/
I’m pleased http://observer.com/2014/03/why-michael-wolff-is-wrong/ is getting a good response in some quarters. Romenesko.com also included the column in their roundup. And I’ve been invited in to talk to execs at a couple traditional media brands, which is encouraging.
Here are the tags, which give you a pretty good idea of the piece: Michael Wolff, Business Insider, New York Observer, Social Journalism, Forbes, Fast Company, Platforms, Old Media, New Media For more, go to: http://bit.ly/OAXj6J
Will they succeed this time? There’s a new wave of players in the space I tried to carve out for FastCompany.com in 2007, with much resistance from traditional journalists. What’s old is new again. See my comment at the end of this piece for more details on my thoughts. http://recode.net/2014/02/07/rise-of-the-platishers/?hubRefSrc=permalink#lf_comment=136566982
