Newsrooms posing the wrong question?
An interesting post by Steve Yelvington highlights some of the questions newsrooms are posing – and should be posing – today. In a discussion about, among other things, open and closed systems and journalism for a new generation of non-seekers, Yelvington lands at:

One of the recurring themes: What will be the economic foundation that will support serious professional journalism in the future?
What if that’s the wrong question?
What if the right question is: What does an open journalism company look like? How does it work? Because if traditional journalism is a closed system, it’s going to be clobbered by an “OK” open system. How can we make that open system “good enough?”
