IMMERSE YOUR SELF.
"Nirvana Not much chance, completely cut loose from purpose, He was a young man riding a bus through North Carolina on the way to somewhere. And it began to snow. And the bus stopped at a little café in the hills and the passengers entered. And he sat at the counter with the others, and he ordered, the food arrived. And the meal was particularly good. And the coffee. The waitress was unlike the women he had known. She was unaffected, and there was a natural humor which came from her. And the fry cook said crazy things. And the dishwasher in back laughed a good clean pleasant laugh. And the young man watched the snow through the window. And he wanted to stay in that café forever. The curious feeling swam through him that everything was beautiful there. And it would always stay beautiful there. And then the bus driver told the passengers that it was time to board. And the young man thought: “I’ll just stay here, I’ll just stay here.” And then he rose and he followed the others into the... more... - IMMERSE YOUR SELF. from Bookmarklet

What happens when a reporter who authors a respected Twitter page moves to the competition? Can she take the identity with her as part of her personal brand? Can the paper assert ownership? - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
This is why I do not use my personal social-media accounts for work-related promotion. I am more than happy to create a work account, such as a Twitter or a Fan Page, for that purpose. But I own my name and social-media persona. I just don't want there ever to be any gray area as to who owns my accounts -- which w...ere created before I was employed at said company -- if I should take another job. - rowlikeagirl

This could help the advertising industry out of its slump ... the SCOTUS decision was a good one from an economics standpoint - LANjackal
Oh yes, big business is *loving* it! - rowlikeagirl
So are the people, such as numerous advertising major graduates, who are seeking employment in that industry and those who are already employed by those businesses. I have a few friends who graduated with that major haven't been able to find work. If this puts them in an office, I'm happy. - LANjackal

"Oftentimes when there are layoffs at a magazine, the fact checkers are usually the first people to go because they look at their staff and they say, well, you sort of check other people’s work, you don't actually produce reporting. But what’s going on is that fact checking is becoming kind of a sport now, and everybody from pundits to people in the public are all engaging in fact checking and trying to call B.S. on each other, and there were just a lot of examples of it this year. A website, PolitiFact – they're a fact checking organization – won a Pulitzer. And then, of course, there’s The Daily Show, which has really taken up a lot of fact checking. We've talked about the disappearance of the professional fact-checker; well, The Daily Show actually has one on staff." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

Herald to Online Users: Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? | NBC Miami
"This holiday season, you have several options of where to donate your money: Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, soup kitchens. But have you considered the Miami Herald? It's not quite a charity case yet, but the paper of record in the Magic City is accepting handouts if you have any spare change. Starting today, users of the Herald's Web edition can make donations to the paper on each story." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

AT&T to iPhone users: Cut back on data! | Marketplace From American Public Media
"RENE RITCHIE: You have almost a full Web browser, and people are starting to really use data and that's hitting these networks very, very hard right at the cell-tower level. That tower basically gives up, can't handle it and kinda melts into a little pathetic puddle in the corner somewhere. In the name of pathetic puddle prevention, AT&T is building up its network and asking customers to cut back on things like video streaming. It's also considering charging iPhone users based on how much broadband they use, like they do with phone minutes. Broadband consultant Scott Cleland says carriers are going to have to start charging because the problem is only going to get bigger." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

"In fact, much of the world is still a blank void on Google Maps, especially slums and lower income communities. The majority of Rio de Janeiro is remarkably well-mapped, and even includes public transit information. But if you live in a favela like Santa Marta (where Michael Jackson shot the video to "They Don't Care About Us") there is no street information at all:" - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
Access to geographic information is crucial to the development of any community. As Mikel Maron, an evangelist of Open Street Maps, puts it: "Without basic knowledge of the geography and resources of [a community] it is impossible to have an informed discussion on how to improve the lives of residents." Last Saturday Fredy Rivera, a leading mapper of Open Street Maps based in Bogotá,... more... - rowlikeagirl

"The bankrupt Tribune Company spends millions of dollars a year on its subscription to the Associated Press. Next week, it's going to test drive some less expensive services, like Reuters, Bloomberg and The New York Times.

"If you are a local publisher still reeling from Craigslist and the collapse of display advertising, grab your helmet. Google is coming to town. In recent months the search giant has released a dangerous trio of local services that newspapers and local publications should begin planning their counterattack (or their partnership agreements). Each new feature is a clever integration of an existing Google service localized to maximize advertising revenue. Make no mistake, Google is putting significant resources into going local, and you should be prepared." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

"Sexton's concern is that when people type "chicken noodle soup recipe" into Google, they don't necessarily care whose website they end up at. They just click on the top search results. "More and more, people don't care about brands," Sexton says. "It's an interesting challenge for companies based on brands. Do they resonate as well online when people have a thousand different choices for where to get a recipe? Even a venerable brand like Gourmet, unless they play the SEO game really well, the big name won't matter to the audience."" - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

"At almost the very moment former publisher John Temple candidly told the Berkeley media-technology conference last week the reasons why the Rocky Mountain News succumbed, the Rocky Mountain Independent was drawing its final breath. The Independent was the second in a series of online news sites established by several Rocky veterans in the hopes of being able to continue doing the work they love in a place they would hate to leave. Ironically, the Independent failed for exactly the same reason the Rocky did: A suicidally stubborn determination on the part of the organizers to be in the business they wanted to be in, instead of attending to the business they needed to attend to." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet

MediaShift . Can Memberships, Clubs, Cruises Keep Media Companies Afloat? | PBS
"These new memberships and clubs, which focus on offering services to readers that are largely different than a pay wall, are a byproduct of declining advertising revenues. As a result of that lost income, news organizations are looking at new ways of generating revenue from readers. The Washington Post has PostPoints, a reader rewards program that offers special benefits to subscribers and online readers. The Globe and Mail, a national newspaper in Canada, recently organized a special luxury cruise that put readers in close contact with some of the paper's top talent, all while cruising the Mediterranean." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
