OhmyNews seeks Citizen Participatory Financing: Club 100.000

We wrote before about the role model of Citizen Journalism, the OhmyNews | OhmyNews English. OhmyNews impact on the Korean society, their success, their expansion plans and their setbacks and failures with it.

Now the economical situation and the decline of traditional advertising (yes I call conventional graphical advertising (Banners, etc.) traditional, they are in trouble.

Besides having in South Korea and around the world lots of contributing citizen journalists, they have now 70 employees (down from 80 one year ago), notable cost for contributors (in South Korea) and cost of infrastructure.

From more than 4 million daily visitors only 2.000 contribute, participate money to sustain the operation. And so OhmyNews heavily relies on advertiser and sponsors (has been around 80 % of their income in the past) - but we all know that during this economical crisis corporate advertising has been going down even more than before.

Last year they where around 400.000 Euro in the red and 1st half 2009 already shows a minus of 280.000 Euro and more to come.

And that is the way OhmyNews want to safe this lighthouse project of citizen participatory Internet media in South Korea.




Oh Yeon-ho, Founder, CEO and OhmyNews Representative Journalist, wrote in OhmyNews:


Source: OhmyNews

Korean Version| in part translated here

Let us surprise and shock the world once more. Let us change the course of media once more. Together with you, we would like to become the first model of citizen participatory Internet media that becomes financially self-reliant through the power of the people, awake and acting with their conscience.

Today, OhmyNews will begin the "100,000 member club" project. Our 100,000 members' club is a group run by citizens acting with their conscience to make OhmyNews financially independent.

What is OhmyNews' value for you? Our 100,000 member club will contribute KRW 10,000 per month (about 5,63 Euro) and enable OhmyNews to become wholly financially self-reliant and continue to develop and sustain itself.
via /more OhmyNews

It remains to be seen, however, whether the OhmyNews Club 100.000 will be enough to make OhmyNews 10th Birthday in February 2010 a happy one. I keep my fingers crossed for a great future of OhmyNews and a role model we can learn from the good and the not so good ways to further democracy and citizen journalism!

Barack Obama verpflichtet Katie Jacobs Stanton als Director of Citizen Participation

Im März 2009 wird sie Google verlassen und ihren neuen Job im Whitehouse antreten. Bei Google war Katie im Bereich New Business Development als Google Moderator und PM tätig, u.a. in Projekten wie OpenSocial, Elections und Open Government (mehr zu Katie auf ihrem LinkedIn Profil).

Vielleicht sollte Steffen Büffel (Was machen deutsche Tageszeitungen im Netz), Leander Wattig (Social Media Marketing der Verlage im deutschsprachigen Raum)und andere einmal untersuchen, welche Zeitungsredaktion, welche Magazinredaktion oder welches Online-Portal einen oder mehrere Citizen Editor oder Partizipations Editor eingestellt hat und ob diese Sitz und Stimme in der Redaktion haben ... [uu fragen welche Regierung, Minister, Partei, Politiker einen solchen 'Näher am Bürger Direktor hat, schenke ich mir].

Middleberg/SNCR: Social Media & Journalists Survey Reveals Generational Gap

by Jennifer McClure

journalists across all age groups and beat assignments are rapidly adopting social media tools into their everyday work

- 71% use Wikipedia
- 68% of all respondents use blogs to keep up on issues or topics of interest
- 48% of all respondents use LinkedIn
- 46% use blogs to research an individual organization
- 45% use Facebook to assist in reporting

Key findings among youngest versus older journalists:

- 100% of Millennial respondents (i.e., 18-29 year-olds) believe new media and communications tools are enhancing journalism, versus 40% in the 50-64 demographic
- 87% of 18-29 year-olds believe bloggers have become important opinion-shapers, versus 60% of 50-64 year-olds
- 87% of 18-29 year-olds confirm that new media and communications enhances the relationship with their audience, versus 42% of 50-64 year-olds

Journalist's Take on the challenge of Social Media - Save Your Ass

Actually, I have no idea why (and how) journalism should save the world. And I am not so sure either, whether I find this desirable at all. But journalism is an art, an hopefully useful set of skills, so let them join in and network.

Charlie Beckett wrote a book on Networked Journalism. It is called

Super Media
Saving Journalism so it can save the world



ISBN: 978-1405179232

Table of Contents

Introduction: Why We Must Save Journalism So that Journalism Can Save the World.
1. "Help! Help! Who Will Save Us?": The New Media Landscape.
2. "Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No! It's SuperMedia!": Networked Journalism.
3. "Will Nobody Do Anything to Help?": Networked Journalism and Politics.
4. Fighting Evil: Terror, Community, and Networked Journalism.
5. We Can All be Super Heroes: Networked Journalism in Action: Editorial Diversity and Media Literacy.


It is, as Adrian Monck, head of the Department of Journalism and Publishing, City University, London says, a serious, accessible introduction to the challenges facing contemporary journalism, intellectually and professionally. And Jeff Jarvis, blogger and professor, CUNY Graduate School of Journalism likes it because it favors the idea and practice of networked journalism. Richard Sambrook, BBC News that 'This important book charts a course through journalism's current crises of Trust, Economics and Technology and points to a way of reconnecting with a broad social purpose.'

So I pass on their recommentation more

Is (Citizen) Journalism endangered to fall in the hand of chrackpots and sly marketers/PR people

Adam Weinstein (on MotherJones - Smart, Fearless Journalism) writes and thinks so and Scott Karp (on Publishing 2.0) doesn't.

While Adam (a journalism student) sees and writes under the heading Stop the Press Releases! Citizen Journalism mainly as a trick of newspaper publisher to fill their pages, cutting costs and replace paid staff, support lazy journalists and editors and open up the 'holy grail' to flacks and hacks (is that what he has been taught at his journalism classes?)

Scott is seeing Citizen Journalism / Networked journalism as a chance and progress for newspapers, journalists and journalism and shares his ideas in 'Developing Algorithms To Prevent Citizen Journalism From Being Gamed: Lessons From Google and Digg'

As Leonard Witt points out at PJNet, you are better off reading both articles.

P.S.
I fully support Adam on his call 'Stop the Press Release [Culture]! '

South Korean Cit-Journalism OhmyNews Chances in Europe and elsewhere

Emma Thelwell wrote on Telegraph.co.uk (in the Money Section, how come, Emma?)

South Korean news pioneer targets Europe

and was quoting Oh Yeon Ho (OhmyNews) with

"I hope I can keep introducing our model to other countries including Europe, North America and hopefully North Korea in the future. Why not?

Actually, we are in talks with a European partner to launch an OhmyNews site in Europe."

Is Why not good enough?

Over the last 18 month I studied the situation in Europe and specially in Germany. How Startups and established Publisher can make use of Citizen Journalism and Networked Journalism for the better for their

- readers / users
- writer / users / reader
- advertiser / user / readers
- publisher / user / reader / writer

Most, if not all countries in Europe are not in a similar situation South Korea was in 2000 and btw., the situation in South Korea since has changed quite a bit and OhmyNews has to run, if the will keep their relevance for Korea!

Of course it is always good to study examples, but in the end you need to develop a compelling play / show for the stage you want to be successful on ...

Three years ago, I was recommending the model to a client and checked with Seoul - but he client declined to consider. Today, I still praise the founders and start of OhmyNews, but for me it is now more about the Do and Don’ts - OhmyNews is becoming to established, does not adapt to the changes in South Korea’s society and does not care enough about their community needs and wants.

Participatory Media Literacy

MIT Press hat ein Kapitel von Howard Rheingold's neuem Buch

Civic Life Online: Learning How Digital Media Can Engage Youth
(die Seiten 97 - 118)

Auf der MIT Website steht als Abstract zum Buch:

"Teaching young people how to use digital media to convey their public voices could connect youthful interest in identity exploration and social interaction with direct experiences of civic engagement. Learning to use blogs (“web logs,” web pages that are regularly updated with links and opinion), Wikis (web pages that non-programmers can edit easily), podcasts (digital radio productions distributed through the Internet), and digital video as media of self-expression, with an emphasis on “public voice,” should be considered a pillar—not just a component—of twenty-first-century civic curriculum. Participatory media that enable young people to create as well as consume media are popular among high school and college students. Introducing the use of these media in the context of the public sphere is an appropriate intervention for educators because the rhetoric of democratic participation is not necessarily learnable by self-guided point-and-click experimentation ...
