Journalism as a Dinner Party

Get your attention?

It’s not my line, I stole it from Khoi Vinh who tossed it out during a presentation in Zurich last week (video below). He was talking about how journalism needs to be tied to user experience much more tightly now because of all the platforms it can be delivered upon.

A few quotes …

Even though great journalism is its own justification I don’t think great journalism is a substitute for a great user experience.

Analog media is a document. Digital media is a conversation.

Both of those ideas resonated pretty strongly with me. Watch the video, add your thoughts in the comments.
