Rapport: Fagenes Fremtid præsenteret

Dansk Journalistforbund nedsatte i 2017 et ekspertudvalg, der skulle kigge på fremtiden for journalistitikken, kommunikationsfaget og de visuelle fag. I ugens løb præsenterede arbejdsgruppen sit arbejde, der har resulteret i fire rapporter.

Anbefalingerne har også fået lidt omtale i branchemedierne:

7 provinsmedier byder på FM4

Til november udløber Radio24syvs sendetilladelse, og licens skal derfor udbydes.

De syv mediehuse er udover Jysk Fynske Medier Herning Folkeblad, Skive Folkeblad, Sjællandske Medier, Lolland-Falsters Folketidende, Flensborg Avis og Radio ABC. Dermed lever sammenslutninger af medierne i høj grad op til de politiske intentioner om at placere radioen udenfor København og tilbyde et indhold, der dækker regionale og lokale interesser.

Sammenslutningen vil også kigge på andre opgaver, skriver MediaWatch:

FM4-tilladelsen er hovedfokus her og nu for ny regional mediekonstellation, men kredsen afviser ikke at gå sammen om flere opgaver. Aarhus, Herning, Odense og Esbjerg nævnes blandt de byer, radioprojektet kan forankres i.

Der er dog også andre, der vil lege med:

Nordic Entertainment Group driver i forvejen kommercielle radiokanaler i Norge og Sverige og erklærer sig interesseret i at drive public service-radioen FM4 i Danmark – også selvom der skulle knytte sig krav til kanalens geografiske placering.

Rapport: Robotter ser ikke ud til at erstatte journalister

Sådan lokker Schibsted unge læsere til

Spotify klager over Apple

“In recent years, Apple has introduced rules to the App Store that purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience — essentially acting as both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers,” noted Spotify cofounder and CEO Daniel Ek in a statement. “After trying unsuccessfully to resolve the issues directly with Apple, we’re now requesting that the EC take action to ensure fair competition.”

Agate vil hjælpe medier med mikrobetalinger

Agate allows users to pay publishers small amounts, for example 20p or 30p, per each article they read. However, online spending is capped at the equivalent value of the subscription for the same time period; for example, if a weekly subscription is £1, once the reader spent £1 in the same week, they can access content for free. The objective is to reward readers for engagement with the brand without locking them in to a subscription from the beginning.

Det betyder IPv6 for annoncører

‘IPv6’ er den næste version af IP (Internet Protocol), der er navngivningen af alle enheder, der er forbundet til internettet – de bliver tildelt et unikt tal. Der er brug for flere IP-adresser, men overgangen er ikke uden udfordringer:

The transition from IPv4 to IPv6 muddies advertising companies’ ability to match devices based on their IP addresses. IPv4 still accounts for a majority of the IP addresses connecting to the internet.
