Reinventing news

Dan Gilmor, a US techno-pundit, has some fabulous ideas for turning journalism into social work in a manifesto for how he would run media if he ran it.

Sample: “Transparency would be a core element of our journalism. Every print article would have an accompanying box called “Things We Don’t Know,” a list of questions our journalists couldn’t answer in their reporting.” (Like, will I have a job next week? Where did I leave that pack of Marlboro Lites? What is that smell from the news desk?)

Some good ideas mixed in with some the muesli. Some.
