Ny blogg på jobbet

Efter två test med bloggrapportering från Bokmässan respektive Förskolebiennalen tyckte jag och mina kollegor att det var dags för en permanent redaktionsblogg för tidningsavdelningen. I mellandagarna snickrade jag ihop den och igår var det premiär. Förutom inlägg från de två tidigare bloggarna innehåller den än så länge tidningen Origos rapporter från Mattebiennetten i helgen, Annika […]

Twitter is becoming the one stop place for relevant reading these days, especially since I’m way behind with my Google Reader feeds. Today’s most retweeted post, and a required read, must be Clay Shirky‘s long and insightful look at past media revolutions and the one we’re going through right now, Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable.

Interesting times ahead at the tabloids in Sweden

Today Thomas Mattsson was appointed editor-in-chief of Expressen, the 2nd largest tabloid/evening paper in Sweden. Great news, as Mattsson has made a name for himself being web2.0 friendly, listening to people and using social media to connect with his users/readers. Very exciting, and a very good choice.

Good use of microblogging in journalism – give us more examples!

• November 28, 2008 • Comments (1)

Whether status updates on social media sites should count as microblogging or not, the walled garden that Facebook still is to a large extent, makes status updates if not useless from a publishing perspective then atleast difficult to accommodate as they are on an open to all site. The same goes for users whose updates […]

More conversation needed on journalists' blogs

• October 22, 2008 • Comments (0)

On too many blogs written by Swedish journalists you see people commenting but the journalist never replies. They use a platform built on conversation as yet another megaphone, ignoring their readers. What journalists turned bloggers need to understand is that providing a space for comments is not enough – if you want to be taken […]
