Last week, we launched Morph, a real-time conference blog for the Mediamorphosis conference sponsored by the American Press Institute. Ezra Klein, Britta Gustafson, and Mary Hodder worked with me on covering the discussions; we also involved folks like JD Lasica and Jon Dube to comment remotely. The blog launched Wednesday; but Thursday afternoon it had […]
Several people have wished Jeff Jarvis was here. In his usual way, he’s captured some of the issues of the conference via a smart read: An excerpt from his post—and the entirety is well worth reading: “As an old friend and former colleague of mine said often, journalism is a trade, a craft — not […]
The live sessions are winding down here. Look for some summaries of the conference–high points, key points, challenges and recaps to go up in the next couple days. If YOU have thoughts to share, please post them here–your insights and comments will be valued. Give yourself the last word, huh?
Tim Porter’s got comments on on First Draft: “No one needs an editor. Reporters don’t. Bloggers don’t. Even other editors don’t. But last night I realized why I want an editor. I was too busy yesterday to keep up with all the intellectual activity at Mediamorphosis, an API Media Center conference underway in San Diego […]
Some folks at the conference asked about how they can post on this group blog: 1. Get an account–email smernit at aol dot com or come talk to me and we will set you up. 2. Post in the comments section under a post you want to talk about.
80 people in the room, laptops open. Dale and Andrew ask: So how do you like the conversation so far? There isn’t much holding back. Some comments: William Weiss: We need to remember that the technology is strictly an incident…It’s the knowledge of new consumers that matter in building these businesses. Leah Gentry: I am […]
A relaxed dinner at an unexpectedly fancy restaurant with fellow conference participants. Then hanging out in the bar with waves of other attendees coming back from their dinners. A collection of comments on the day: –I’m tired of talking about media vs. blogs–that derailed other points at the conference. –Are we stuck on this topic […]
Terrific, thoughtful post by Len Witt on his own blog. Some excerpts: “So here I am at the MediaMorphosis conference, but got shut out in getting a comment made that I wanted to make. So what, I’ll just blog it here, which represents the power of who has control, the official moderator or the individual […]
If you’re giving this a fast read, be aware that there are some excellent comments–in the I(surprise) comments links for these posts. Steve Portigual, Bill Gannon, Judy Faber, Anne Hunt, Michael Silberman, Rebecca McKinnon.Rob Enderle, Norbert Specker, and others have all added their (quite worthwhile) 2 cents. (As did the presumably fictional Charles Schulz)
Jon Dube is part of the remote reading group, and picks up on some of the themes in what may be a swirling discussion to those not here. He writes: “In answer to a question of whether the new definition of news a conversation, nytimes.com’s Len Apcar hit the nail on the head when he […]
