Tech Press Critique - Churnalism Fight Club! Plus - The Science of Liveblogging And The Aftermath of Israel’s Twitter War
In today’s episode, John Biggs, TechCrunch’s East Coast editor, and I disagree about churn and journalism; and Sara Morrison from the Columbia Journalism Review talks with me about the fight, and yes it’s a fight, over the “right” way to do journalism. Alicia Cohn from thehill.com talks about the impact of the Israeli Gaza Twitter war in Washington DC and Neil Thurman tells me about new research into liveblogging. With music by Bobby McElver.
In today’s episode I talk with Chris O’Brien from the San Jose Mercury News about the new IPO process and how it’s changing the way we cover companies who’re about to go public. And Jon Mitchell, from ReadWrite.com, and I talk about how Apple’s product launch hype cycle just might have a little less hype in the future. With music by Bobby McElver.
Today I’m launching Tech Press Critique, a bi-weekly look at how the online media are covering technology. Whether it’s TechCrunch or The New York Times, this show is going to be about challenging assumptions, tipping over some sacred cows, and pushing bloggers and traditional journalists toward greater accountability.
