If you’re not already subscribed to the PBS IdeaLab blog, the forum for Knight News Challenge winners to talk about their projects, spout off on related topics, and generally try to change the world, now would be a good time.
Here’s a few recent posts over there that I’m still thinking about:
- Amy Gahran on learning to swim before you jump off the sinking ship of working for mainstream news organizations.
- Geoff Dougherty on the economics of paying stringers and citizen journalists at a news start-up in Chicago.
- David Cohn on building a community from scratch at Spot.Us.
- Dan Pacheco on the print-on-demand revolution.
Check it out, leave a comment, rate a post. I’ll be posting there for the next two years (!) about the progress and upkeep of ReportingOn.
