"Journalism isn’t “dying” for any lack of need, but the art of journalism is changing. A lot of this is down to infrastructure. Web2 did a lot for journalism, opening new avenues for investigation and communication. Information that once took hours to access is now close at hand, and, if you’re schooled in open-source intelligence techniques, is often of staggering quality. Conversations that once took place down the pub now play out online, allowing reporters to mine them for hints and sources. Web2 also gave many would-be writers a platform. Thanks to social media and internet blogging, anyone can share their story whenever they want."
