Making online journalism pay

For a good round up of the NUJ's making journalism pay online,take a look at Conrad Quilty-Harper piece at the Online Journalism Blog.

He brings out five pointers

1.that getting to a sustainable position is difficult.

2.The rules of the journalism game aren’t changed by the internet.

3.Traditional media doesn’t do investigative journalism.

4.that the use of Email is important.

5.Local freelance journalism is dying.

The star of the show was political blogger Guido Fawkes who told the conference

I have achieved the Marxist ideal. I own the means of production and distribution. I have job security, I can't be fired and do much better than many journalists."
