How Live Blogging is Changing Journalism

More info: http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/260956

Live blogging has taken off across the Web, giving journalists a chance to write about events in real-time. Will media have to adapt to this rising trend? Digital Journal TV investigates in an interview with the president of Cover it Live, a live blog leader.

Digital Journal — To live blog or not to live blog, that is the question. For journalists of all stripes, it is a decision to consider seriously: covering events and offering commentary in real-time has become the activity du jour for enterprising publishers.

DigitalJournal.com has tested the service from live blog trailblazer Cover it Live, whose software has been used by weather reporters, entertainment writers covering the Grammy Awards and comic-book nuts attending ComicCon. DigitalJournal.com tried out Cover it Live for the first U.S. presidential debate, the U.S. vice presidential debate, the Canadian federal leaders debate, and the second presidential debate in the United States. As impressive as the service was, we ran into some noticeable lag and reliability issues at first. To find out what the company doing to ensure quality in the future, we visited their head office in Toronto, Canada.

Because live blogging is getting more popular every month, Digital Journal TV wanted to know what makes a live blog company tick and why Cover It Live has exploded in popularity.

We spoke with Cover it Live President Keith McSpurren to learn how citizen journalism can benefit from live blogs and what business model Cover it Live may pursue. Journalism’s continuous march to the Internet era just got more interesting.

10 Myths About Blogs – Scott Rosenberg

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/07/29/Scott_Rosenberg_Say_Everything_How_Blogging_Began

Scott Rosenberg, Salon co-founder and author of Say Everything, gives his list of the top 10 myths about blogging. “I will boil down to you to fewer syllables than a haiku: some bloggers are doing journalism, others aren’t.”

—–

You’ve heard all the arguments about blogging, pro and con. Blogs are a wondrous innovation, keys that have unlocked a vast treasury of self-expression and allowed underdogs everywhere to challenge giants. No, wait! Blogs are a scourge that is debasing journalism, undermining traditional authority, drowning us all in meaningless chatter, and destroying civilization as we know it.

Say Everything chronicles blogging’s unplanned rise and improbable triumph, tracing its impact on politics, business, the media, and our personal lives. What blogging has become, Rosenberg says, is a new kind of public sphere – one in which we can think out loud together. – The Hillside Club

Writer, editor and website builder Scott Rosenberg is a cofounder of Salon.com and author of Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers, Three Years, 4,732 Bugs, and One Quest For Transcendent Software. At Salon, Rosenberg served as technology editor and, from 1999 to 2004, as managing editor and vice president for editorial operations. He also started the Salon Blogs program in 2002 and began his own blog as part of it.

Before leaving Salon in 2007 to write Say Everything he conceived and prototyped the Open Salon blogging community. Before Salon he wrote on theater, movies, and technology for the San Francisco Examiner for a decade and was honored with the George Jean Nathan Award for his reviews. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Wired, and many other publications. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and two sons. Today he blogs at wordyard.com. He can be found on Twitter as @scottros.
