One journalist's musings about the beautiful, bizarre world in which we live
A couple of weeks ago, I bussed to Rosario for the 5° Foro Internacional de Periodismo Digital – the 5th International Forum on Digital Journalism.
I ran a liveblog of the conference, so I was watching the coverage as it happened.
I know people talk about it all the time, but it’s amazing how fast the way people communicate is changing. Even in the few years I’ve been working as a journalist the differences are notable.
People often say that to be a journalist is to make a job out of learning, discovering new topics and becoming an “expert” in a variety of subjects. But that job is now also focused on keeping up-to-date on the various ways to talk to your audience.
