Via The Link, According to Jarvis June 19, 2007Posted by newscoma in Newscoma Files.
Jeff Jarvis at BuzzMachine writes this about the role of linking in a newspaper’s on-line format in his archives:
And that is how journalism will surely expand into new areas of coverage – hyperlocal, niches, specialities: News organisations can no longer afford to own, employ, and control – to vet, verify, and sanitise – everything that happens. The only way they can expand is to work cooperatively with witness-reporters, community members, experts, people who publish on their own, finding and sending readers to the best and most reliable among them. How? Via the link.
It’s a good read. Go give it a read.
