Hey, Jeff does a great summary of the Aspen Institute conference re business models for journalism at NewBizNews & Hyperpersonal news streams
- the first cut at a new model for hyperlocal journalism from the J-school at CUNY
- ideas re hyperpersonal news from Marissa Mayer from Google: Mayer emphasized to the media folks at Aspen that they must go to where the people are and not expect the people to come to them ("if the news is that important, it will find me"). How does news become part of my stream?
- and ideas stemming from my idea about paying for fact-checking for big articles: I'd like to pay for trustworthy news, and one step in that direction would be to get stuff fact-checked, like an expose of swiftboaters hitting the health care thing.
