On Optimism

From TechCrunch, commenting on a study from The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism:

Online journalists are cautiously optimistic that their publications have viable business models compared to traditional forms of media. Over 60 percent of respondents reported that their online news units were making a profit. But only four out of every ten online journalists are “very confident” that online news can find a profitable business model for journalism, and are worried about the money-making prospects of internet advertising.

Here’s the thing…

We all know the demand for news and journalism is there. But I sometimes wonder if the answer is for those who are demanding it to lose it before they truly understand its value. Maybe it’s one of those “don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone” situations?

On one hand, I hope not. It would be a shame to lose what’s been built. On the other hand, a truly fresh approach isn’t always a bad thing either.
