From me, 8+ years ago. “Data, diffusion, impact: Five big questions the Wikileaks story raises about the future of journalism.” https://t.co/RRAlg5Gzmj

Whenever big news breaks that's both (a) exciting and (b) relevant to the stuff I research, I put myself through a little mental exercise. I pretend I have an army of invisible Ph.D. students at my beck-and-call and ask them to research the three most important "future of news" items …

On Nov 19, 2018
@dangillmor shared
About that idea to merge the biggest online news sites -- about a decade ago I suggested, mostly tongue-in-cheek, that the biggest traditional journalism orgs do that. (They'd need an antitrust exemption, most likely. Also it'll never happen.) https://t.co/nE51QL4Fn2
