The FJP began in 2011 as a blog covering disruption, opportunity and innovation in the news industry. We’re now forming a media lab to explore and highlight better ways produce, consume and understand the news.What We’re Thinking
  1. Today’s news environment includes traditional and non-traditional actors alike: journalists, news organizations, activists, technologists, citizen reporters, data analysts, designers, gadflies, social media users, your kids, your neighbors, your grandma.
  2. A lot of smart people are creating fascinating ways to produce and digest the news. Sometimes this is a digital tool. Sometimes it’s a methodology to help us stay thoughtful as we immerse ourselves in media.
  3. How can both news producers and consumers better discover and support tools of long-term value?  Is there an inherent tension between them or can their needs be mutually met? As we explore these questions and highlight solutions created by others we believe we can provide a few of our own.
