By commenting on a blog posting on Internet Evolution about one of our companies, statSheet, I ended up having a great conversation with Joe Grimm the author, who ended up inviting me to an online chat about Valhalla and Journalism 2.0. I had never done a chat before, but it’s essentially marathon top-speed IM-ing with a live audience whose comments are moderated but real-time.
Terrific group. Mainly journalists trying to figure out how to make sense of the new world. The remark I made that was most enthusiastically received by the group was that the transformation of the journalism industry produced “opportunities to make lots of money”. Good luck, I know the journalists of the world will migrate to the new world of Journalism 2.0 and make out well.
Here’s a widget with the whole chat:
