  6. How to Build a Newsroom Time Machine

    A student journalism class puts together a newspaper using manual typewriters, scalpels, glue, analogue photography, etc. Sounds like a good exercise and not just because I’m old(ish). (via Waxy)

  9. The Online Photographer: The World’s Best Photography Magazine Tries a Different Revenue Model

    For the bit about “vampire” publications, which rely on the journalism of others. eg, ‘The Week’. I reckon, when/if increasing numbers of traditional publishers charge money, there will be more of these vampires — well curated, re-written content, without original journalism, on a tiny budget.

  14. Sean In Tumblr

    “For journalists, bloggers and music fans in general, there is no real way to justify listening to one thing over another…” How a music website, never mind your average punter, struggles to cope with the amount of music around today. (via Haddock)

  15. LRB · John Lanchester · Let Us Pay

    On the future of the newspaper industry. Many good nuggets, including: “New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year.”

    From Feb 2010. Wikinews’ combination of deadlines and less of a formula for story structure than Wikipedia has proved challenging for collaborative writing.

  19. 11 years old, on the pill and sexually active? The media loses the news again

  25. BBC News | Technology | Vacuum-powered rubbish disposal

    “Britain’s first vacuum-powered waste-disposal system.” What, aside, for example, from Quarry Hill Flats in Leeds in the 1930s or the Barbican in the 1960s? BBC News mindlessly regurgitating press releases? Who’d have thought!
