Lisa Williams over at the Idea Lab has a post on the “10 Things Journalists Should Know About Surviving in a High-Tech Industry.”
It took me a moment with thinking of “journalism” as a “high-tech industry,” but it is. A lot of the insane things dot-commers were doing a decade ago we’re doing now … a decade late. Don’t know how to code? Learn it on your own time, get yourself a better job. Don’t know how to do an audio slide show? Learn it on your own time, get yourself a better job.
It’s no longer good enough to be good at your current job, you need to be good at the next job, too, even before you get it.
