Online Journalism: More Than Just Another Distribution Channel

Fred Wilson had a brief post that includes a chart that displays his listening habits for this year. In one graphic, you see his interest in each band wax and wane. This data is based on music he actually listened to throught the online music service.

As we all collect snapshots of our lived, it is intriguing to no longer just collect media, but to capture how we interact with it, and its importance in our lives.

You can now imagine a future where – when you look back to the top news stories from 20 years ago, you don’t just see headlines, you see how you reacted to them, what you posted to a blog, or commented on, and how these interactions shaped your life.

Online journalism really is about more than just another distribution channel.
