Investigative Journalism vs. Blogging

Jeremiah Owyang muses on his experience at a recent journalism meet-up at Stanford:

“I was blogging in real time, and some guests found that it was interesting that we were publishing in real time, while some of them were working on issues for their July publications. I was also asked about the editorial process and fact checking, a conversation of ‘reporting’ vs ‘having a conversation’ was held.”

Each of these reporting styles has its own purpose and virtues. It seems that media companies are still sorting out how to integrate and leverage the power of each.
