Newspapers: A vision of the networked future

June 16, 2009

KCRW is a fantastic radio station from Santa Monica in Southern California. It is a public radio affiliate and broadcasts some brilliant shows and provides lots of brilliant podcasts.
Among its key staff are the brilliant indie kingpin Nic Harcourt who made his name presenting Morning Becomes Eclectic a one stop shop for live sessions from the hippest bands around.
The Simpsons’ and Spinal Tap’s Harry Shearer has a brilliant show, but my favourite is The Politics of Culture which is also available on iTunes downloads.
Here, the ever more annoyingly right Jeff Jarvis, media blogger, Guardian media online columnist and Professor of Journalism, argues that the future for newspapers is to mimic the success of google.
I think he has a persuasive argument.

Meanwhile, over at the new Guardian Media US podcast Jarvis is joined by husband and wife team Jon Fine and Laurel Touby where the future for newspapers is deemed to be an ecological shift towards deeper co-operation with smaller publics and a shift towards integration into all echelons of community life. They also ponder major US newspaper groups decisions to discuss price cartels.
Jarvis sees the death of newspapers imminently, I’m not sure.
