By Pew Research Center: News people are stretched to the limit trying to feed the seemingly insatiable appetite of the web for content—immediately. The enormity of its impact on the industry—both real and potential—is hard to overestimate.
The web has opened new vistas for daily newspapers, enabling them to offer video content that competes directly with television. The Internet has also helped facilitate collaborative efforts such as that between the St.
Although several editors voiced concerns about the web as a distraction that deflects resources from the print edition, overall, the view of the web appears to be increasingly positive. In interviews, for example, newsroom executives said their website readers want strong visuals, concisely-packaged information and easy navigation—all preferences that have begun to influence the presentation of print newspapers as they work to lure an Internet-savvy generation of potential readers to a more user-friendly experience.
As a result, many newspapers today emphasize visuals, including improved graphics, more white space and better sign-posting.
Because of this, it is helping counter sagging morale as newsrooms shrink. The optimism also exists at smaller papers, but not as strongly. Whatever their feelings, there is no doubt that the web has been accepted as a fact of newsroom life. Today, editors said they no longer ask reporters if they have time to file for the web before embarking on their story for the print edition.
Filing first for the web is a given. Editors also noted that exclusive material is no longer kept off the web as it was just a few years ago to protect the print edition impact. Today, it is posted immediately. To meet new challenges, some newsrooms have completely reorganized to provide a variety of written and visual content more efficiently to both the website and the paper.

The team brought together everyone at the paper responsible for gathering data for listings, then melded them with library researchers and archivists, a reporter trained in computer-assisted reporting CAR plus an editor who had been a high-level database researcher.
Their job, she said, is to mine data, then work with other teams across the paper to develop stories based on that data. Initial results have included front page enterprise stories on local restaurants and housing foreclosures.
Driven largely by the Sunday front page treatment in the newspaper, the on-line database drew over a quarter of a million page views during the first few days, Hall said.
Working with data on housing foreclosures, the team produced a two-day front page package that mapped foreclosures in the Orlando region.
The on-line version of the story allowed readers to zoom in by zip code or street name using an interactive map. Other databases produce lighter fare but still draw large reader interest.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel circulation:As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from ph-vs.com “It is all Bullshit”, is what Mr.
Money Mustache says, “You need to get the News out of your life, right away, and for life.” The reasons for this are plentiful, from the inherently sucky nature of news programming itself, to the spectacular life benefits of adopting a Low Information Diet in general.

Jango is about making online music social, fun and simple. Free personal radio that learns from your taste and connects you to others who like what you like. In a somewhat disorganized rehash of more visionary arguments expressed in McLuhan's "Understanding Media", and of less angry analysis in Bloom's "Closing of the American Mind", Postman stops short of alleging Progressive conspiracy to undermine our culture, and stops well short of suggesting any practical antidote.
