Mathew Ingram: Google Helps Newspapers

April 20th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Mathew Ingram at The Nieman Journalism Lab wrote a post today entitled “Google helps newspapers — period” , intended at least in part to rebut two of my recent posts on the subject: “Is Differentiated Content Enough To Save Newspapers?” and my earlier “Yes, Virginia, Google Does Devalue Everything It Touches“. He cites a proposal […]

Not All Google Critics Are Bigots

September 5th, 2009 · 14 Comments

Jeff Jarvis wrote a post today entitled “Google bigotry“, in which he asserts that: Google has an image problem – not a PR problem (that is, not with the public) but a press problem (with whining old media people). He then goes on to launch a tirade against a Le Monde journalist whose offense was […]

Google: News Timeline

April 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on Google: News Timeline

The other day, when I was blogging about Google’s news cluster timelines, I lamented their lack of a unified approach towards visualizing news over time. Their launch of Google News Timeline thus gives mixed feelings: it’s a cool interface, but it still doesn’t unify their approach to this space. First, the good: the interface is […]

Is Differentiated Content Enough To Save Newspapers?

April 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

The Guardian headline sums it up: “Big newspaper sites ‘erode value of news’, says Sly Bailey“. Sly Bailey is the  chief executive of the Trinity Mirror, one of the UK’s largest newspaper publishers. Here’s what she has to say: A consumer is now as likely to discover newspaper content on Google, visit our sites, then […]

Why Publishers Don’t See Google As A Friend

April 12th, 2009 · 3 Comments

The raging battle between publishers–particularly the newspapers–and Google has been so overplayed lately that I’m tempted to stop blogging about it until something actually happens beyond the war of words. Still, I recently read two paragraphs, in my view, neatly summarize the terms of conflict, and I felt compelled to share them. The first is […]

Danny Sullivan vs. Newspapers

April 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Danny Sullivan has a delightful rant on Daggle, his personal blog, entitled “Google’s Love For Newspapers & How Little They Appreciate It“.  It’s a fun read–though like all rants it could use an editor–and there’s even a fair amount I agree with. Still, as I noted in a comment, he does steal a few bases. […]

I’m No Google Fan Boy, But…

April 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I may not be a Google fan boy (start with this post if you’re new here), but the recent column in the Guardian (which, by the way, is one of my favorite Endeca customers) entitled “Google is just an amoral menace” is over the top. In fairness to the Guardian, the column is an opinion […]

Extra, Extra: Newspapers’ Web Revenue is Stalling

October 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on Extra, Extra: Newspapers’ Web Revenue is Stalling

Today’s news: newspapers’ web revenue is stalling. No wonder: Google is mixing up search, advertising, and publication, while newspapers are responding to this competitive pressure by sliding down the slippery slope into becoming aggregators. This is a tough game, and I’m not sure how it plays out. I understand how media players fear Google commodifying […]

News, Search Experience, and Value

May 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’ve been known to spar with Jeff Jarvis about Google’s role in the present and future of journalism, but I readily admit I’m something of an amateur. Thus I’m delighted to see a thoughtful post from Josh Young, a more serious and informed media junkie, entitled “Not by Links Alone“. In it, he does a great […]

YouTube vs. Unauthorized Advertising

May 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I was intrigued to see a flurry of  posts today about how YouTube is cracking down on unauthorized advertising. Naturally, since YouTube’s raison d’etre is to make videos available for free, they’d like a cut of any advertising revenue associated with the content they serve–particularly since they’re bleeding money to pay for bandwidth. But some […]
