Over the past few months we’ve been exploring current disruptions and opportunities in American journalism by interviewing great minds about their thoughts on — and efforts in — a remarkably fluid and changing landscape. The video above introduces some of whom we’ve been talking to.
Following the FJP
Our goal is to launch a Web site in early 2011 that houses these interviews so that those interested in the future of American news media have a deep resource through which they can explore changing newsrooms, business models, education and the stakes all this has on democracy itself.
Interested in Collaborating? We are Too.
A good place to start is joining us at our Tumblr blog at FutureJournalismProject.org. A few of us are posting there now. A few more would be great. If you’re passionate about the changing journalism landscape and want to join in, send us an email and tell us a bit about yourself.
We’re also looking for hacks and hackers of all stripes:
- iPad developers to co-create an app version of the Project;
- Designers multimedia developers to remix content and a create whole lot of awesome on the site;
- Editorial Contributors to expand our reach across the country (we’re based in New York City);
- Industry Partners such as bloggers, publications and organizations to help promote the Project to their communities;
- Your ideas on who we should interview in 2011 as we continue the Project.
Interested in being a Future Journalism Project Sponsor? We are too!
Contact us and we’ll let you know how we plan to integrate Sponsors across the Web Site, the Podcast Series and feature length documentary planned for 2011.
You can learn more about the scope of the project here (PDF).
