Evolving Newsroom is Julie Starr’s blog. I’m interested in the evolution of news and public information, having worked in media for 25 years in the UK and New Zealand. In that time I have:
- led organisational culture change and workflow projects, most recently for Fairfax Media NZ
- founded (and since closed down) allaboutthestory.com, an experimental online content marketplace
- been a journalism tutor, chief/layout/downtable sub-editor, reporter and radio presenter
- been a key member of the team who designed and launched the UK Daily Telegraph‘s integrated web-and-print newsroom way back in the early 2000s (before Facebook or Twitter were born).
I update this blog as time and inclination allow. It’s intended as a place to think out loud about how the internet is changing news and public information: a small node in a loose network of thousands of future-of-news and future-of-whatever blogs. It’s also a place to experiment with online publishing, muck around with apps and learn a little coding – no better way to learn than by doing.
This is predominantly a links blog: I read a lot so I figure I may as well share interesting stuff I come across.
I try to corroborate information through two or three sources online (and sometimes offline). Given time constraints, however, more often than not I just point to or respond to blogposts. In any case, I attribute/link so you can follow up as you wish.
Where I quote verbatim from somewhere else it will look like this.
Or sometimes like this.
I don’t get paid for anything I write here and any views expressed are my own and not necessarily shared by clients or employers, present or past.
I am happy to be corrected where I’ve got things wrong. Thanks!
