The future of journalism

First of all:  there is one.  And if it’s at least part in new media, who better to talk about it than the estimable Annalee Newitz, editor of io9.com?

Newitz covers the ground from 19th-century muckrakers to WikiLeaks, including crowdsourcing, Ushahidi, and 4chan.  This talk, given at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin, conveys some of Newitz’s characteristic curiosity and humor.  Food for thought for librarians, journalists, and everyone else who worries that the demise of old media traditions might be tanking our habits, assumptions, and jobs.
