Report The Future

By 2090, most of you will be too old to care, if you're still alive at all!

“How crucial for us to rehearse the future, in words.

Never to doubt that you will live to utter them.

Never to doubt that you will tell your story.”

Joyce Carol Oates, Black Water

As evidenced when one compares my two "What's in your gear bag" articles (written with reporters / journalists in mind), newsgathering is changing, as is "news selling" (we all know that print has suffered at the hands of digital technology, and the fact that people want their online information addictions fed FREE of charge) - and so too, the newsroom, that beehive of gathering and disseminating, must also adapt to the changing tides of the times.

After reading these next referenced articles, you'll probably think nothing can change the shape of newsrooms to come. Bookmark this or otherwise save the URL and let's revisit 5 years from now, 2020.  You can run your mouse or cursor over the image for a full-screen view. It's from a BBC UK article where innovation team at BBC News Labs created a timeline of what they believe are key future developments for technology and news, as well as some recent milestones. Here's the link.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
