In anticipation of next week’s Online News Association annual conference in New York City, Vin Crosbie has thrown down the gauntlet:
Unfortunately, the major obstacle for online journalism is the people who practice it ó the best of whom will be attending the conference. Most are transplanting into the new medium the failings of the old, mass medium: the failings of traditional journalism and the failings of traditional journalismís packaging.
