Mathew Ingram’s OrthodoxyJosh

Fri, 30 Sep 2011 15:53:24 +0000

Writing at gigaom, Ingram has become the orthodox voice of criticism of know-nothing newspapers and their superficial attempts at innovation in journalism. Cases of “Don’t get me wrong…” make his tone sound apologetic to me. My guess is that he’s moderating his frustration and anger in order to keep the readership of the editors he […]

Pick twoJosh

Wed, 27 Jul 2011 05:07:08 +0000

Journalism’s challenge: “No one has figured out a way to present lots and lots of constantly updated information in a way that (a) is beautiful, (b) is effective at story discovery, and (c) privileges editorial control.” Josh Benton has the goods:

Pure Money Gifts Are Basically a Bad IdeaJosh

Sun, 20 Jun 2010 02:55:02 +0000

The broad thesis under which I like the pwyw model is that there is a huge positive externality that goes to the payers. They look noble, the same way the endowers of chairs at universities look noble. Now, I’m not saying that all the payers in a pwyw scheme will be rich and pay vast […]

Speculation on Links, Traffic, and AuthorityJosh

Wed, 25 Nov 2009 19:42:25 +0000

We can say this: traffic flows along links that we click. For a few years—before google—we could even say this: a link is not a link until we click it. But now that is wrong because google made links really something else—meaningful signals, not just infrastructure. Links have a deeply important role in pagerank, the […]

Picture this! The news graphed.Joshslate news dots

Tue, 15 Sep 2009 15:47:23 +0000

Slate added a curious addition to its site last week. Its heart is in the right place, and this is a good experiment, not a silly one. I believe there’s extraordinary value to be unlocked by mapping a world of articles onto the social graph that they describe textually. I’ve written about graphing the news when […]

Curating the News Two WaysJosh

Fri, 04 Sep 2009 19:48:37 +0000

There are two relatively new efforts to curate the best links from twitter. They’re both very simple tools, and their simplicity is powerful. As with any good filter of information, there’s a simple, socially networked mechanism at play, and analyzing how that mechanism works helps us predict whether a tool will thrive. The name of […]

The Wall Street Journal Isn’t StarbucksJosh

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 16:25:11 +0000

I am at pains here not to seem like a big, gruesome troll. I am therefore going to avoid anything that could be even reasonably construed as an argument anything close to “information wants to be free.” That would give lazy opponents a too easy strawman, which is too bad, because what I’m really giving […]

The Wall Street Journal’s Fancy SEO TricksJoshpaywall

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 14:26:40 +0000

I’m not an SEO expert. So if there were a group of SEO experts standing in the corner, I wouldn’t be among them. I would be among the mere mortals, who apply basically their common sense to how search engines work. All that said by way of longwinded preamble, I did happen upon a fun […]

Parasites, readers, and valueJosh

Wed, 26 Aug 2009 21:33:24 +0000

The idea that some sites, like blogs and aggregators or whatever they’re called, are parasites on traditional news is interesting. It’s not crazy. Those who run traditional news sites see aggregators benefiting from the resources of the traditional players and worry that they, the traditional players, may be hurt by that use. The worriers say, […]
