SDPB Features Ehrisman, Powers, and Heidelberger on Journalism's Future

Whoo-hoo! More press for South Dakota bloggers! South Dakota Public Broadcasting includes Scott Ehrisman, Pat Powers, and me in their weeklong Dakota Digest series on the future of journalism. After interesting features on corporate media (including a reminder that our own Larry Pressler helped kill local radio), newspapers (hear Randall Beck's wishful thinking), and the small-town weeklies, SDPB offers observations from three of South Dakota's noisiest bloggers about the role of online journalism. Among the highlights:
  • Mr. Ehrisman prognosticates that within a decade, we'll see the daily paper disappear as most media goes Net-centric.
  • Mr. Powers suggests a lot of small-town newspapers have reporters who wear many hats and may not have much more special training or expertise than bloggers.
  • I contend that hyperlinks are one of the greatest inventions of the last hundred years (give at least a little love to Paul Otlet, Belgium, 1934!).
Hear us three bloggers in amazing full-color audio again this afternoon on SDPB at 5:30 Central, 4:30 Mountain, or stay tuned to the SDPB website, where the audio should be posted shortly!

Update 11:15 CDT; Whoo-hoo! SDPB audio link is up!
