I’m very sad to report that Online Journalism Review has been disbanded by USC’s Annenberg School. It was a site that reported on new media, was really one of the first online communities to provide thoughtful coverage on the issues that are dramatically affecting the communications industries. The editor, Robert Niles, did an amazing job, was always positive and open-minded, a great person to direct a community. Robert will continue blogging at www.sensibletalk.com (great name), although not at USC. As for USC, they have jumped into bed with the Knight Center for its Digital Media Center. Lots of info out there, blogs and seminars, so hopefully it will be able to adopt the same spirit that was present at OJR.
Archives will remain availabe at ojr.org. There’s lots of good stuff out there. Take a look see.
