Trends in Journalism

This is posted on with the title The End of Journalism with the following caption: "Annabel Crabb, one of Australia's best known journalists, has made the move from print to digital media. She is an example of the 'new' journalist, able to deliver her unique take on national politics across a range of different platforms. In this thought-provoking (not to mention entertaining) lecture at the University of Melbourne, she discusses the future of journalism in this new and ever-changing media landscape. The A.N. Smith Lecture in Journalism commemorates Arthur Norman Smith, a leading political journalist. October 2010"

Ms Crabb has lots to say that will be of interest to people contemplating careers in journalism. But watch members of the audience too. For the most part, people beyond a certain age don't get it, do they?
