Comments on: Teaching journalists to read http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/17/teaching-journalists-to-read/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: şok diyetler http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/17/teaching-journalists-to-read/comment-page-1/#comment-56013 Fri, 24 Oct 2014 18:40:44 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=5390#comment-56013 This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Then you’ll know which is right for you.

1) Since when must one post links on facebook or Twitter to read? The best-read, most interesting folks I know are the ones who aren’t celebrating their cleverness and coolness on f & T but actually reading (and playing guitar and taking hikes and volunteering at soup kitchens) not dinking on their PCs all day. And I find that a good way to learn what people read is to ask them. Old-fashioned, I know, but it works surprisingly well. It’s harder to BS your way through conversation than through a Tweet or facebook posting.

2) Linking is great, and the MSM should do it more. But you can say that in the length of a Tweet. It doesn’t, or shouldn’t, take 2,500 words. If Twitter has taught us anything, isn’t it that?

Traditional media now thinks the way to compete with new media is to up the volume. There are a minute few journalists I talk to who have the time to actually research a story thoroughly. Their go-to sources and sources for quotes are just that – quick and dirty go-tos. Worse, they’re what Goodman, quoted in Nieman Lab’s Week in Review called, ” ‘laundering my own views’ by getting someone from a thinktank to express them in an article.”

I’m totally with you on links. And also on everyone reading and synthesizing more. But the cost structure of old media means I often see very young, very green “journalists” trying to cover a complicated, inscrutable, opaque industry like accounting/auditing whenever a story breaks that absolutely requires it. And they have to suck everything they can out of me in twenty minutes on the phone. I feel bad for them and for the public. Can a blog like mine substitute for well funded, institutional media? As hard as I try, it can’t. I lack the resources to do justice to so many of the stories I’d like to do. I also lack the legal backing. That any independent bloggers in the financial realm – not institutional ones like you – can accomplish anything is a quite a miracle.

(Did he?)

btw: what did you think of Lemann’s recent essay on New Orleans?

And what’s your view of Mr. & Mrs. Krugman’s explanation of the financial crisis?

By media standards, I’m not impressed by that salary. But if you really meant “we live in a world where EVEN AN IDIOT LIKE Dennis Kneale has reportedly been pulling down $500,000 a year,” you have made a very good, but different point.
