Future of Journalism


What do I want from this class? I am looking for a sense of what I need to do to be more successful as a journalist in the future. Unfortunately, many of our classes in JMC have focused on the past and the mechanics of journalism. This is really the first class that I have heard of that is focusing on the future of the industry, which is what matters most because that is where we are going to be. There was an interesting article in the New York Times last week about Wikis and how people are starting to make money from the online sites. What we need to learn is how we are going to be able to survive in the future, be journalists and still make money. Newspapers have not figured that out yet. We need to do it if we are going to have any sort of a future in the industry.
