The Carnival of Journalism is a site that asks a monthly question about the future of journalism (carnival.digitalnewsroom.org/). The project was started by David Cohn, formerly of Spot.us and now working with the new endeavor Circa. This month’s question is managed by a team of students at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism led by prof Andrew Lih. The question is “What is your most dangerous idea for pushing the boundaries of journalism?” and they requested video responses (under 140 seconds). I was feeling a little “dangerous” this morning, so I decided to talk about my ideas for the future of journalism education. Enjoy! And check out their site for other submissions.
I’ve been thinking about this concept for a while. Maybe you’ve heard me talk about it. I wrote about it in OJR after attending SXSW in 2005 http://www.ojr.org/ojr/stories/041304royal.
I also had some “dangerous” ideas that I presented at ONA last year, for the session, If I Were in Charge. Take a look at my “7 Things Everyone in Your Organization Should Know” presentation.
What’s your dangerous idea? The deadline is today, so get on it!
I did a little gardening this weekend, can you tell?
And, now, since I am still feeling a little dangerous, I am going to go run with scissors 😉
