Social Networking and Beat Reporting

Jay Rosen asks, Beat Reporting With a Social Network: Can it Work?

Are there network effects in beat reporting? Across the US, a dozen reporters (with beats) are going to try to find out—simultaneously. This will improve their odds of succeeding.

The answer is yes, I’m certain, and I’m betting this great new project that Jay is working on will conclusively demonstrate it.

    I hope you are right Dan. I’m excited to be working on this project. It’s a good chance to role around in the mud and get dirty trying new things.
