Lisa Williams has written what may be one of the best posts about how to adapt to an increasingly technology-driven journalism world.
Lisa, the Placeblogger founder who has a foot planted in both media and technology worlds, impressed the heck out of me at the ONA conference in Toronto when she illustrated how journalism is becoming a high-tech industry. Now I know you’re thinking right now: “Well, I already know we’re becoming high-tech,Â Danny. I’m always looking around for new web tools I can use for our site.”
However, journalism becoming a “high-tech industry” doesn’t simply mean we’re using the latest gizmos and knick-knacks to deliver news. It means we’re experiencing a fundamental change in our values, culture and business practices — changes that are more pervasive than you may initially realize. Check out Lisa’s post for some prescient advice on how to deal with it.

Very interesting article, especially since I did the opposite – went from high-tech to dabbling in journalism during the high-tech lows while dh stayed on the high-tech track. We’re both well-acquainted with the roller coaster ride and the need for flexibility. You have to manage yourself as if you were self-employed, whether you freelance or on staff. We even moved across the country and back in order to keep afloat. What a ride! 🙂
