The Future Journalism Project explores disruption, opportunity and innovation across the media landscape. We do this through a mix of original thinking and reporting, curation and the use of various platforms that best fit the type of content that we’re working with.
To date, our most visible effort has been FJP Global, a blog that looks at media and technology issues from around the world, and FJP Latin America, a recently launched edition that focuses on what’s happening from Mexico to Tierra Del Fuego with additional attention paid to the Hispanic media in North America and developments in Spain.
About This Site
On this site you’ll find interviews with — and articles by — people from the business, editorial, technology and educational sides of the industry. The primary themes we’re exploring are:
- Journalism Education
- Journalism Business Models
- Journalism Practice and Technology
- Journalism and Society
The FJP is an open media initiative, and we hope products and services we release in the future will reflect the values and practices that entails.
Our plans moving forward are to fund long(er) form journalism and its offshoots by connecting funding sources with writers, documentarians, data wranglers, technologists and other media producers. Some of these methods are traditional (eg., sponsorship & advertising). Others are twists on models we’ve been observing elsewhere and believe can be applied here.
We’re currently talking with organizations and content creators about our first set of initiatives. If you would like to be a part of those discussions, we’d love to hear from you.
Interested partners and prospective sponsors can contact us here.
Journalists and technologists who would like to get involved — or propose an initiative — can contact us here.
The FJP was founded by Michael Cervieri and incubated by ScribeLabs. In the upcoming months it will be spun out as an independent entity.
Activity to date has been made possible by a number of contributors, those who have been generous with their time and ideas during our interviews with them, and initial technology partners who have donated valuable resources that are letting us launch with a stable infrastructure.
