In case you missed it, the new journalist/ism is upon us. Powered by wifi and blog-engines, journalists like Dan Farber over at ZDNet are hammering out stories live from announcements. They are breaking a few rules along the way – commenting on what ‘competitors’ are saying – in this case Shankland, opting for speed over gramatical accuracy, and capturing the essence of the event.
This has been going on for a while now – Farber’s peice on ZDNet today just bought it home for me.
If you are in a non-technology industry and see this happening in your trade rags and elsewhere I’d love a few other examples.
