This blog is about the future of journalism - the interplay between citizen journalism and the so-called "mainstream media," and all of the things that affect the industry, from top to bottom, mergers to internships. We usually update twice a week.
This blog came into being almost a year ago, and just last week we received our 1,000th unique visitor. Thank you - please keep reading!
For a quick introduction to the tone of the blog, I invite you to browse recent entries. Here are some of the most popular posts:

Young Journalists Are Lost. Here's Why.
Additionally, I've noticed some compelling searches by visitors in the last week: "internship hearst magazine," "wage comparison journalism," and "how many unpaid hours per week is an intern supposed to work."
And it got me thinking: what would YOU, readers, like to see on this site?
Would you like more coverage on the young journalist? The MediaBistro trolling, Ed2010 scrolling, I-need-an-internship reader?
Would you prefer coverage of the established business? The new blog-writing, paycheck-got-cut moping, I'd really like to talk about journalism but I'm too old for school reader?
Please comment - I'm open to anything!

P.S. - I've begun writing a new satire column on the Ivy League for a small New York City daily. If Gawker's your thing, I think you'll enjoy it. Keep your eyes peeled, link to come soon!
