The Journalist of the Future – Scott Christian – Open Salon

Cerrone tweeted about this one.  Good read, I like this evolving media stuff.  A taste…

I equate the current climate for journalists to the end of the studio system in Hollywood, where hundreds of low rent actors lost their steady paychecks, but the cream rose to the top to collect a much bigger payday.  When the studio system ended, actors essentially became freelance contractors, guns for hire if you will.  Journalists look to be going this way as well, especially while the media world looks to find a new and successful business model.  This may not be all bad though.  Just as the studio breakdown put the industry power in the hands of the actor, so the media breakdown might do the same for the journalist.
