Public=good, private=bad?

One interesting thing cropping up from the plenaries at the Future of Journalism conference is the reinforcement of the idea that there is no one size all.

This was something that cropped up when I managed to blag a coffee with the editor of The Hindu a little while ago.

At the conference, Bettina Peters of the Global Forum for Media Development questioned whether it was appropriate to try and export business models from the developed world to the developing world.She went on to discuss the need for collaboration between the North and South hemisphere, getting educators and journalists involved in sharing ideas and knowledge.

She gave an example that journalists in Nigeria might be equipped to support journalists in Romania – even though the constraints they face may be very different.

Mixed models and the sharing of ideas are key ideas cropping from the plenary, should be an interesting couple of days.
