computer-guyRyan Sholin is watching the changing trends when it comes to journalists in new media. He is a great go-to guy when it comes to how how we can create an “organic” journalist community online. And with Wired Journalists paving the way, we have seen many things happen this past year, and we should be experiencing new waves of it in 2009.

Here’s just a sample:

  • More journalists are using Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking and reporting tools to connect with their peers, sources, and readers.
  • More journalists are learning multimedia skills, whether it’s as simple as point-and-shoot video or as complicated as XML-to-Flash.
  • More journalists are getting curious about what all this new media talk is all about, even if that just means they’re curious enough to sign up for Wired Journalists (where there are now more than 3,000 members) and lurk.
  • All of this is good.

What about you? How do you think journalists, in general, are doing at adopting (and adapting to) new technology?

Sholin goes on to ask what objectives wired journalists need to set for 2009.
