And here is some slightly less local media stuff:

  • “The latest industry to get a Trump bump: Journalism schools.” Apparently applications have jumped at Columbia’s graduate school of journalism, The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
  • Jason Kottke looks back at twenty years of writing kottke.org. Quite the milestone!
  • The Canadian Association of Black Journalists is running a survey to find out what a re-imagined CABJ should look like.
  • A new report examining virtual reality formats for journalism found that VR “prompted a higher empathetic response than static photo/text treatments and a higher likelihood of participants to take ‘political or social action’ after viewing.”

You can follow Edmonton media news on Twitter using the hashtag #yegmedia. For a great overview of the global media landscape, check out Mediagazer.
