The Future of Weblogs and Journalism

The Economist: “Is Rupert Murdoch right to predict the end of newspapers as we now know them?”

OJR: “Advertising, editorial lines blur as bloggers’ salaries tied to traffic.”

Business Week: “Blogs Will Change Your Business

Also, as an aside, I discovered recently that Bluffton, South Carolina, right down the coast from my home town of Beaufort, is doing some really interesting stuff with Weblogs and grassroots journalism. (I’d never have expected it, as South Carolina is, how should I say this, not exactly a hotbed of new media innovation. But anyway.)

On their site, BlufftonToday.com, they encourage readers to send in news items, and all the staff writers have Weblogs. It’s pretty interesting. Pretty Korean, in fact.
