The Internet has forever changed the way that news is produced and consumed. It has crippled the traditional business model for print publishers by exploding the distribution monopolies they once enjoyed. It has also been a boon to the audience, allowing accessibility, interactivity and accountability for journalism like never before, and allowing new business models to emerge. Much has been written about using digital tools for the practice of journalism (including what I've contributed with Journalism 2.0 and Journalism Next) so this book will focus primarily on using digital tools (in a new digital ecosystem) to launch and successfully run a new media news business. New digital models have a proven, sustainable economic model supporting quality journalism. A closer look at the new forms of news and journalism that are succeeding will reveal how journalists/entrepreneurs can use those lessons to launch their own start-ups.
