Tim Porter: Intentional Journalism

Tim writes: “In order to preserve the principles of journalism, we must change its practices and form. We must create journalism we can sell. We must commit journalism by any means necessary. [Read: Journalism by Every Means Necessary.]

The future of news belongs to those who build it. Journalists are not excluded from this process – although they have been acting like they are. Were I to rewrite the Quality Manifesto, I could call it the Innovation Manifesto or the Reinvention Manifesto (or the Phoenix Manifesto in honor of Phil Meyer’s up from the ashes metaphor). More likely, though, I’d title it Intentional Journalism.”

Tim’s post is long and thoughtful. If you are riding the edge of change in journalism or participatory media, this is a good read.
