New Media 2005

Vin Crosby has six predictions for 2005. All of them are interesting.

I agree there will be more arguments between the Church of Citizen Journalism and the Temple of MSM. Me, I’m a bit of an agnostic. The two religions need each other in ways many of the devote rarely acknowledge. Bloggers need MSM as a source content, and MSM needs citizen journalists to grow their businesses.

As for other content, 2005 could be the year of Internet deivery of video, so Vin and I are in step on that count.

Belo not withstanding, I think we’re a little ways away from seeing the print side of the newspaper business absorbing online to prop up flagging print revenue. Not in 2005. Maybe 2007.
