This is the blog of Julie Starr. It’s about the evolution of news and public information, and is updated as time and inclination allow.
A lapsed journalist, Julie has worked in the media for 20+ years in NZ and the UK.
In that time she’s been an agent for change/consultant in newsrooms (developing digital cultures and workflows), a journalism tutor, chief/layout/downtable sub-editor, reporter and radio presenter.
She was part of the team who designed and launched the Daily Telegraph‘s integrated web-and-print newsroom in the UK, having a particular focus on future workflows.
Back in New Zealand, she consults on newsroom change management and workflow projects. She was the founder of allaboutthestory.com, an experimental content marketplace which closed down in 2012.
Julie also posts shiny things from around the web on Magpie, images of big, man-made things on I Love Infrastructure, and tips for TiddlyWiki beginners on a help site that she updates
occasionally very rarely.
