The Web’s sublime promise for better journalism

This is a great slideshow from Lisa Williams, founder of Placeblogger.

The Web will change everything about journalism and the bottom line will be more effective journalism, in sublime ways that we cannot see now. As Williams says, now “[Perpetrators of waste and corruption] will deny everything until you go away, but with the internet you can do better. ”

That’s because with the Web and tools that are being developed now, the story never goes away. It sticks. It grows. And it builds. This iterative quality and the technology that is being developed now can ‘effectively” make “the story” happen.

For me, it is time to read Susan Sontag’s “On Photography” again.

Hooray! This is just one of an excellent series of presentations that community foundation execs are being treated to at hashtag #infoneeds.
