[UPDATE: Good coverage from The New York Observer on the event below.] I just attended a lively panel discussion at NYU's J-school, entitled, "The Future of Media: 2009," which featured major players from newspaper, magazine, and blogging worlds. A video will go up soon at I Want Media, which sponsored the event. In the meantime, here's two soundbites from my notes: Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter: There's a "need to provide a cohesive story" to tweets. "Getting into the massive repository with no context is a little overwhelming." Bonnie Fuller, former editor of US Weekly: "Twitter has tapped into this enormous need of people to be stars in their own lives." She likens Twitter "to your own reality show." There were a number of interesting conversation threads, such as a few fanciful thoughts on how to monetize newspaper journalism in the digital age (via Bonnie Fuller), why most print reporters make for lousy bloggers (via Nick Denton--of course), and so on. Nick David Carr was there for the NY Times. Maybe he'll cover it in his media column. I'll have more later.
