I’m one of the lucky ones — working journalists who are still employed. Like all those who persist, I believe that delivering the news as best we can (telling the truth, if you will) is still not only honorable but urgently necessary.
The technologies that have disrupted our business are a boon as well as a threat — for the smart and the nimble. With apps and social media, we’re crafting a news experience, not just a news product. Do it well, and we’ll be indispensable players in an information culture that’s messier and more demanding but infinitely more dynamic than journalism 1.0.
Do I know exactly what that looks like? No way. Am I up for the challenge? Heck, yeah.
