Media Futures (1 of 4) - Newspapers | BBC World Service - The Documentary,

With more news now available online does the internet spell doom for the daily newspaper? As more and more news is available online, the idea of buying a traditional newspaper is fast becoming a thing of the past. Or is it? Some parts of the world are still enjoying strong print circulation. And even places like the west where newspaper sales are plummeting, it has often proved difficult to make the digital alternative pay its way. In part one of this four-part series, Mark Coles asks what is the future for newspapers? And if they survive, how will they need to change? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0199y2s http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0199y26

Economists and Democracy by Dani Rodrik - Project Syndicate

Raised on textbooks that obscure the role of institutions, economists often imagine that markets arise on their own, with no help from purposeful, collective action. And, once we recognize that markets require rules, we must next ask who writes those rules. http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/rodrik56/English

The Memory Palace Episode 24: The Moon in the Sun

The article began by triumphantly listing a series of stunning astronomical breakthroughs that the famous British astronomer, Sir John Herschel, had apparently made "by means of a telescope of vast dimensions and an entirely new principle." Herschel, the article declared, had established a "new theory of cometary phenomena"; he had discovered planets in other solar systems; and he had "solved or corrected nearly every leading problem of mathematical astronomy." Then, almost as if it were an afterthought, the article revealed Herschel's final, stunning achievement: he had discovered life on the moon!

Rebooting the News: Episode 80

Jay is on the road, and I just got back — but the news keeps on rebooting — so we got Doc Searls to fill us in on what’s going on with cable and how Al Jazeera is covering the events in Egypt. He calls it the Sputnik Moment for cable. Doc weaves a wonderful story. We had nothing but technical glitches starting up the podcast, but we found a rhythm. We talked about WikiLeaks, educating the journo-programmer, and whether the US will flip the Kill Switch if there ever is such a thing. Doc thinks not, but I think hmmm… Huffduffed from http://rebootnews.com/2011/01/31/rebooting-the-news-80/
