Newsonomics

Just wanted to say congrats and thank you to Ken Doctor, who generously included some of my comments in his new book “Newsonomics: Twelve New Trends That Will Shape the News You Get.” Based on my participatory media work at The Bakersfield Californian,  I’m included in trend 6, “It’s a Pro-Am World,” about how content created by community members is being blended with journalism from professional organizations to create a whole new kind of mix.

I’m a longtime admirer of Ken, whose Content Bridges blog is widely read in the news media business.  In addition to being a smart guy, he’s a very nice guy and I wish him all the best with the book.
