This blog basically showcases my final project for COM546 in MCDM program in the University of Washington. It includes the final paper, the annotated bibliography and the slideshare for the presentation.


Introduction of the paper

Technological change in human communication profoundly affected journalistic activities. From print to digital, media evolution has facilitated an exponential variety in news reporting patterns, including its agenda setting, content collection, production and distribution. More substantially, it has redefined the relationship between journalists and audience, especially after the advent of digital media.

This paper provides an overview of media evolution from print, broadcast, to digital, and discusses the supervening social necessities behind adoption of each new technology.  It emphatically expatiates on how each media technology has affected traditional journalistic undertaking and fostered new forms of journalism.

The paper also predicted the future collaboration between professional and grassroots journalism and layouts the framework of a multi-dimensional convergence of old and digital newsrooms.
