Innovation Journalism Vol.2 No.12, Oct 31 2005
By David Nordfors.
It’s innovation time for journalism! Traditional news media are being challenged by innovative sources of news on the Internet, such as blogospheres, or citizen journalism. Traditional journalism struggles when covering innovation as a topic. While innovation pivots society it is not a key news word. Traditional news beats – such as technology, business or politics – chop up innovation processes to fit their news slots, missing the bigger picture.
How can journalism report on innovation, following the cross-boundary interactions driving today’s society? Who can do it? This DVD presents a roundtable discussion about the future of journalism with the “father of the Internet” Vint Cerf (Google /ICANN), Whitfield Diffie (Sun Microsystems), Amy Bernstein (Business 2.0), Lee Bruno (Red Herring), Dan Gillmor (Bayosphere), Anders Lotsson (Computer Sweden), Frances Mann-Craik (Tornado Insider, Addison Marketing), Harry McCracken (PC World), Tony Perkins (AlwayOn Network), Jan Sandred (Biotech Sweden), Richard Allan Horning (Tomlinson Zisko LLP), Charles Wessner (National Academies) and Stig Hagström (Stanford Center for Innovations in Learning). Producer and moderator: David Nordfors (Stanford / VINNOVA)
