At Medium, journalism professor and inveterate Internet observer Clay Shirky declares the end of the print newspaper and makes a blunt recommendation, “If you are a journalist at a print publication, your job is in danger. Period. Time to do something about it.” In particular, he encourages current journalists to learn to understand and present data, become comfortable with social media as a newsroom tool, and get experience working in teams to launch new products.follow link
Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard
Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.
Journalists: Print Newspapers Are Dying, Time to Pivot
I know that the paper is depending on articles like mine to keep the interest of their older readers; and these readers are slowing disappearing (okay, dying) and are not being replaced with younger ones.
It's a win-win situation for me and the paper for now. Although I am not compensated financially, I get to write about what interests me, get to also put my stories on the web site of our local History Museum, and, along with another writer, have published many of these stories in book form.
For the papers, they get free copy, and stave off the wolves a bit longer. But for how long? It's really a bit sad.
