(Below is my response to this month’s question on Tomorrow’s News, Tomorrow’s Journalists: November Topic: A million to save journalism. See my original post.)
With $1 million to help journalism, I would fund a project to look for ways to financially sustain journalism efforts, building off of the New Business Models for News Summit.
I wasn’t at the conference, so I followed it online. It was a great starting point, but we need more Web people involved. And not just Web people, but innovators who have successfully made money online.
To give you a sense of the people I would invite:
- Sergey Brin and Larry Page (Google co-founders)
- Craig Newmark (Craigslist)
- Matt Flannery (Kiva)
Weigh in: Who else would you invite?
Sidenote: This closed-door summit is not the answer: API Hosting ‘Crisis Summit’ for Newspaper Industry.
