Pick of the day: The iPad and the future of journalism


Like my colleague, Mike Rosenwald, I’m totally psyched for the iPad (though I’m not quite as gaga as he is). I think it’s going to change our behavior—how we watch movies, read books, magazines and newspapers. And it’s going to change how authors and journalists do their work. Don’t believe me? Just check out what Sports Illustrated might look like on one of these devices. To me, the iPad is not, as too many have said, “revolutionary,” but rather the natural next step, if, indeed a dramatic one, in the evolution of technology. Jay Rosen, a professor at New York University, isn’t so sure it will save the business of journalism, but he has some interesting thoughts in this interview with the Economist about where the profession is headed. And, yes, continuing the theme of the week, I found this link on Twitter.

Another interesting debate on the topic can be found on WETA.

Print may be going out of style, but does that mean an end to quality journalism? This program shows both sides of the debate from experts in the field. The show airs this Saturday at 3:00 pm and 5:00 am. Those of you that find this topic interesting will certainly enjoy this debate, I know I did!
