A note on Nieman


A blog I’ve been following for a while (mostly through its Facebook and Twitter posts) is the Nieman Journalism Lab‘s blog, which is a product of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University. On its “about” page, it says:

The Nieman Journalism Lab is an attempt to help journalism figure out its future in an Internet age.

and, as I mentioned in the first post, I’m all about that. Along with industry-specific observations, there are posts and links to stories about interactive media in general. It’s become a daily read.

A post today called “Micropayments and the power of free” is especially interesting because it references Chris Anderson’s book “Free,” which I’ve been listening to, in connection with a pricing experiment for an iPhone app, which I’m hoping will be on the drawing board for my publication sooner than later.

    “A Note On Nieman” is perfectly fitting for your area of work. I took a glance at the actual blog only to find myself spending more time than anticipated reading different entries. What a clever site that is filled with information I would never even consider. I can see why this is especially a daily read for you. It is a hidden gem in terms of being a central location for letting the news world know what is happening with news its self. I am interested in seeing this iphone app you have been pursuing and its outcome. It makes you wonder about the power of Apple over the news industry as well as media in general.
