Funny: "The first job is to instill fear in the newsroom. Oh, there's fear there now. But it is fear of the unknown. What we need is fear of the known." And the author continues on to list a few good reasons for fear, adding, "the first thing I think a newspaper should do is report about the future of news. Assign your best reporters and editors - the Bejesus Task Force - to get all the prognostications." Good advice, not just for journalists, but for everyone in the content business. I try to do it for education and learning, here. But the vast majority of teachers and educators get their news elsewhere, from, shall we say, less radical sources. What education needs as much as jorunalism, though, is fear of the known. Via Robert Paterson.
