The future of news, part II

A 14-minute podcast follow-up to the previous podcast on the future of news.

Notes

2000: How to make money on the Internet.

2009: Natural Born Bloggers.

We gave everyone a broadcast station and a printing press.

Not everyone does it.

Say 1 percent are NBBs.

They all can do it, but most don’t want to.

News orgs will be machines for processing huge amounts of news, adding/teaching quality.

Evan Williams is doing this at Medium.

But I don’t like that he has a bottleneck, that his publishing system requires that you write and store your writing on his servers.
