Digital first: what it means for journalism

Going digital does not mean merely putting articles online before the presses roll, as then print still rules the process. No – digital first means the net must drive all decisions: how news is covered, in what form, by whom, and when. It dictates that when journalists know something, they are prepared to share it with their public. They may share what they know before their knowledge is complete so the public can help fill in blanks.

Wichtiger Artikel vom guten alten Jarvis, in dem er schlüssig argumentiert, dass “Digital First” sehr viel mehr bedeutet, als die Printinhalte über einen neuen Kanal zu verteilen.
