Here’s a great interview with Dan Gillmor, author of We The Media, about entreprenuerial journalism. In it he says, “The career ladder that people of my generation aspired to is in almost all cases is just not going to be available to them. But that should only be scary to people of my generation. If I were a 20-to-22-year-old right now, and contemplating the future of media, I would be ecstatic at the possibilities.”
So fear not, young journalists. The future is yours for the taking. Just be willing to try new thing, take risks, and yes, sometimes fail.
