A friend of mine has asked me to send some links to sites that cover developments in how we consume news. I thought it would be useful to share those links here. Journalism and news publishing has been on the sharp end of technological change in the last few years which has seen business models vanish, skill sets change and new ways of producing and consuming news emerge.
If you are interested in the way publishing is evolving then these sites are worth following. I’m sure I have missed out loads of good ones so do add any in the comments. These are the sites I follow and which consistently share useful and interesting updates – that means there is no science to how they have been selected! I added a few tech focused sites at the end because in many ways tech is powering the change.
