Danskerne vil have flere algoritmer i medierne

Journalisten:
“Men tre ud af fire respondenter i undersøgelsen mener, algoritmer kan spille en vigtig rolle i udvælgelsen af nyheder, hvis det sker i samarbejde med journalister og redaktører. Blandt de unge respondenter er det 94 procent, som tror på, at samarbejdet med algoritmer kan gøre os bedre til at vælge det rigtige indhold til brugerne.

De unge er også mest positivt stemt over for at fjerne den menneskelige faktor fra ligningen. Hver fjerde respondent født efter 1997 synes, det er i orden, at algoritmer alene udvælger, hvilke nyheder der er relevante, og selv publicerer dem uden menneskelig kontrol.”

Listen to News overtager Radio 24syv-navnet

BT:
“Fremover skal platformen hedde 24syv, fortæller direktør Christian Grønlund. Et navn, der sikkert vil få mange til at tænke på den tidligere taleradio Radio24syv. Og sammenfaldet er ikke helt tilfældigt.

For platformen, som eksisterer i form af en app, skal nemlig have alle podcast fra den tidligere kanal liggende, ligesom de programmer, som overlevede Radio24syvs nedlæggelse, vil være at finde der.”

Innovationsrapport lækket fra The Wall Street Journal

BuzzFeed News:
“A brutal internal Wall Street Journal report obtained by BuzzFeed News reveals how the 130-year-old broadsheet is struggling mightily in the current digital and cultural age — such as not covering racial issues because reporters are afraid to mention them to editors, playing to the limited interests of its aging core audience, at times losing more subscribers than it takes in, and favoring ‘a print edition that lands in the recycling bin.'”

Kritik af Spotify: Rogan interviewer konspirationsteoretiker

Spotify har købt Joe Rogan og hans podcast-univers for en kæmpe sum. Det betyder, at de bliver en del af diskussionen, når deres podcast-wonder interviewer kontroversielle personer om kontroversielle emner.

TechCrunch:
“That issue was highlighted in the last day, when Joe Rogan — the highly paid podcaster with a libertarian bent — brought on Alex Jones (of InfoWars fame, whose own podcast was removed from Spotify, along with YouTube and others, in 2018) on to his show for a meandering three hours, leading to an uproar over how Spotify is giving a spotlight and microphone to an infamous purveyor of misinformation.”

How will you measure if your event has been a success? How much of a role will post-event content play? And how will you keep the relationship going with attendees afterwards?”
