TRAILER: Black & White and Dead All Over

See on Scoop.itMediaMentor

Black and White and Dead All Over is an in-depth look at the newspaper industry as it struggles to remain financially viable and to keep the presses rolling. Through the voices of prominent journalists including Bob Woodward of the Washington Post and David Carr of the New York Times, we reveal an industry in the midst of a financial death spiral, as readers abandon print for online news sources. We see publishers and editors desperately trying to create a sustainable business model for their dying papers. Our film examines the importance journalism has on our society by following two fearless investigators into the badlands of North Philadelphia. With the economic crisis in the newsroom threatening to shutter their struggling tabloid, these courageous women bring down a dangerous and corrupt narcotics squad. If the American newspaper dies, who will conduct investigative journalism, who will hold public officials accountable? For more information on the film please visit blackandwhiteanddeadallover.net

The future of publishing

The future of publishing
After nearly 400 years in the slow-moving world of print, the scientific publishing industry is suddenly being thrust into a fast-paced online world of cloud computing, crowd sourcing and ubiquitous sharing. Long-established practices are being challenged by new ones – most notably, the open-access,
author-pays publishing model. In this special issue, *Nature* takes a close look at the forces now at work in scientific publishing, and how they may play out over the coming decades.

Jane Glassco Arctic Fellowship Papers (2012)

The following is collection of papers written by the Jane Glassco Arctic Fellows (now the Jane Glassco Northern Fellows). This amazing group of future northern leaders worked hard over two years (2010-2012) to research how policy can be improved on a variety of topics of importance to communities from Old Crow to Nain. The results of this research are below.

The 2012 Jane Glassco Arctic Fellows are a group of 12 young northerners seeking to make a positive impact on policy issues in Canada’s North. Together the Fellows embarked on a two-year program of both self-directed and collective sharing of knowledge and skills while also allowing for the incorporation of traditional knowledge into the research process. They each came away with an individual policy paper on a subject of their choosing, and a group paper which attempts to pinpoint the kinds of learning environments – within the education system and beyond – that best foster the emergence of “leaders” in Northern Canada.

http://www.ted.com “If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she’s gonna call me Point B … ” began spoken word poet Sarah Kay, in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011. She tells the story of her metamorphosis — from a wide-eyed teenager soaking in verse at New York’s Bowery Poetry Club to a teacher connecting kids with the power of self-expression through Project V.O.I.C.E. — and gives two breathtaking performances of “B” and “Hiroshima.”

Thomas C. Jepsen: My Sisters Telegraphic: Women in Telegraph Office 1846-1950 (2000) — Monoskop Log

See on Scoop.itMediaMentor

The role of the telegraph operator in the mid-nineteenth century was like that of today’s software programmer/analyst, according to independent scholar Tom Jepsen, who notes that in the “cyberspace” of long ago, male operators were often surprised to learn that the “first-class man” on the other end of the wire was a woman.

Like the computer, the telegraph caused a technological revolution. The telegraph soon worked synergistically with the era’s other mass-scale technology, the railroad, to share facilities as well as provide communications to help trains run on time.

The strategic nature of the telegraph in the Civil War opened opportunities for women, but tension arose as men began to return from military service. However, women telegraphers did not affect male employment or wage levels. Women kept their jobs after the war with support from industry—Western Union in particular—and because they defended and justified their role.

 

 

Northern_Clips‘s insight:

My Sisters Telegraphic is a fresh introduction to this pivotal communications technology and its unsung women workers, long neglected by labor and social historians.
