  • CBS Interactive Ends Third-Party Ads

    December 21, 2009

    The CBS Interactive decision to join other major publishers in refusing to take ads from most third-party ad networks is one of the biggest stories of the year, because of the cascading effect that, I believe, will follow. Other major publishers, like ESPN, Turner, Gawker, Conde Nast, Martha Stewart, and... more »
  • Repeat After Me: Change is the Opportunity

    November 13, 2009

    The bigwigs gathered in New York this week at a City University of New York conference to discuss "new business models for news." It's a noble effort and one we should all applaud, for we certainly could use a new model for monetizing news content. As I read about these... more »
  • Educate Yourself For Free

    October 30, 2009

    Let's face it: once we graduate from school, we rarely look back. We, as an industry, don't educate ourselves nearly enough. This is a shame -- many non-media companies will pay to have their employees take a course or two. Our companies become smarter when we become smarter. I know... more »
  • Windows 7 Raves Come From Listening to Audience

    October 30, 2009

    Excuse my French, but Windows Vista sucked. There's just no way around it. It was every inch a disaster, so much so that many users switched back to Windows XP , an operating system introduced in 2001. This was a PR nightmare right up there with the New Coke debacle... more »
  • Hulu and the Charge-For-Content Debate

    October 30, 2009

    A topic of discussion of late has been the idea that Hulu will lead to the death of the broadcasting and cable model. A couple of prominent executives have made this allegation, even as it's hinted that Hulu will start charging for content in 2010. So, to keep balance in... more »
  • Media 2.0 101: Local Media Is About Local Audiences

    September 28, 2009

    There has always been an understanding with local media companies that local eyeballs were their source of revenue. Account executives for the Nashville Tennessean , for example, wouldn't generally travel to Seattle to manage clients. Their clients are obviously in Nashville. Likewise, WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge wouldn't generally be selling... more »
  • Why Net Neutrality Is A Good Thing For Local Media

    September 24, 2009

    FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski on Monday outlined plans to turn the agency's principles for open Internet access into official regulation. The speech to the Brookings Institute is being praised by net freedom advocates and roundly criticized by the wireless industry, and this is an issue that we need to weigh... more »
  • Fast Flip and Visual Search: How Big A Leap Forward?

    September 16, 2009

    Google has been getting a lot of hype this week with the introduction of its Fast Flip news product. Microsoft launched its competitive product, Bing Visual Search , on the same day (making one wonder if there aren't some corporate spies traveling between Redmond, WA and Mountain View, CA). Both... more »
  • An open letter to newsroom employees

    September 13, 2009

    I'm filing this in the wake of an " open letter to Rupert Murdoch " from Mark Sudock, a senior editor at Fox 11 in Los Angeles about severe job cuts expected to hit tomorrow. In the letter, Sudock waxes nostalgic about things like competence, quality and "the gold... more »
  • RSS goes to the clouds

    September 13, 2009

    A new development in the world of RSS is getting some well-deserved attention in the tech press , and it has ramifications for anybody in the news and information business. RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication," and it's the primary way that unbundled content gets passed around the... more »
