The Death Of The Deadwood Doesn’t Mean Dead News

Tom Cheredar is excited. Actually, so am I. I’ll tell you why after you go read his post.

Why aren’t more journalists overwhelmingly excited to be alive and practicing their craft right now? We are living in the middle of a revolution — not just for the production of news as a business, but for the entire world. The way people communicate, learn, live, grow and appreciate… it’s all changing because of the Internet and we are bearing witness to the birth of a new era.

Start acting like it.

This weekend I attended a video journalism seminar. I learned how to create a video package. I’m still a bit shy about it, but I loved it. It needs a bit more editing and I will show what I did here at NewsTechZilla.

And I’ll be damned if I’m not too shabby at it. I’m no Christian Grantham, but I think with a little practice and a bit more confidence, I may have a new tool to use.

Seriously, this really is a great time in journalism. And Tom is right.
