The new and medieval world of digital

The “new” world created through the digital age.

This post comes as a short take on an old – but still so valid – article from Katharine Viner on “[…] journalism in the age of the open web” (on theguardian.com). As Pettitt says, we are now living in a world that is more medieval, old-fashioned, than anything. Another quote – not from this text – said “the smarter the phone, the dumber the people”. Digital has made information a lot more available, communications have expanded so much. But at the same time the foundations remain word of mouth 2.0. Which is where digital’s failure lies: telling the truth out of the massive amount of information, rumours, etc … pushed online every second.
That is where digital journalism’s challenge – and opportunity – is. Keep up with the flow but bring certainty to it.
