Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Meet the (New Media) Editor -- John Byrne, BusinessWeek:


My boss came in the other day with the Dell article by Jarvis market up for me ;-) John is a very good listener and a keen observer. I learn from each of these new media interviews... his part on digital being permanent really struck a chord with me.

"Do you find that your readers still subscribe to the print edition?"

BusinessWeek is one of the few magazines I subscribe to—and it's how Roger von Oech and I first met. He reads it too.

And I agree with his statement about user generated content not being Journalism:

"But make no mistake, user-generated content is not journalism. It’s not well-reported storytelling or analysis by very intelligent people who know where the value-added is because of their deep knowledge and sourcing."

Good interview. Molto bene.
