10 Twitter-able Ideas from Jay Rosen

Rebooting the News System in the Age of Social Media
Studio 20 Professor Jay Rosen blogs about ten key ideas for the future of journalism in the social media age:
Here are the ten key ideas I plan to share with the Media140/Sydney conference underway right now in Sydney, Australia. I will be speaking to the conference via Skype in a few hours.  The theme of the event is “the future of journalism in the social media age.”  These ten Twitter-able ideas are my contribution to that puzzle.
