J-School: Educating Independent Journalists

“If tools could make anyone who picked them up an expert, they’d be valuable indeed.” Plato, The Republic

Officially Outdated

Posted by chanders on December 4, 2008

With the online debut of New York Times “Extra” , that beautiful study I did of newspapers (not) linking out is now a historical study of past journalistic reluctance to link to other publications.

“In the old days, son, they did it this way!”

Oh well. Call me a historian of ancient media practices.

    What are you up to these days, Mr. Murley? I miss the good old days of Athens, couches on fire myself.

    Hey Chris,

    Hope all is well.

    You might be interested in a chapter I wrote comparing newspaper organizations and blogs practices of out-linking.
