Retweeted by Mathew IngramWhat journalists still don't understand about the Internet is power of networks. That's why news orgs lost control of distribution online.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramHaving comments but never reading or responding is like having a house party and then leaving to go somewhere else. Predictable outcome'To be a writer you need a thick skin.' True. But the bummer is that to write well in the first place you need to be a hypersensitive wreck.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mathewi Janet Cooke and Stephen Glass wrote great stories.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@jasonpaulgrant @jeffjarvis: Telling people interesting and/or useful things that may or may not fit into the structure of a storyNot everything has a finite beginning, middle, end, good guy/bad guy etc., nor can they all be wrapped up with nice neat little bowIf anything, the rise of "journalism as a process" does a better job of showing just how non-linear and messed up most things really areThis obsession with storytelling can lead us to try and make events less chaotic or more understandable than they actually are
