Last week, in Galway, Ireland, we went to MoJoCon 2017, a world's premiere conference on mobile journalism. Michael was asked to participate in a day one panel. The question posed to the panel was a simple one: Is journalism dead? Michael's answer: yes. In fact, Michael was the only person on the panel on the side of yes, but that didn't mean Michael didn't think it could be resurected.
Traditional journalism IS dead, to be replaced by... us... people with a story to tell using their smart phones to shoot, edit, produce and share with the world. This does not sit so well with employees of CNN, for example. What can replace it is exciting though. Something that lines up more with something like Uber or eBay rather than what the New York Times does today.
