What are the 10 technologies or applications with the most potential to disrupt traditional journalism -- to create opportunities and challenges?

A key point of NewsTools2008 is to identify the technologies with the potential to reshape journalism. We've organized some of them in 10 conceptual "pods" for after-dinner coffee klatsch discussions on Wednesday, April 30. Here's the list, with the names of the folks who will each take 60 to 90 seconds to introduce the "space" and pitch the ensuing discussions.

What screens can we apply to answer that core question? For guidance, consider three questions listed by Andrew Haeg, of American Public Media in Minneapolis, during his portion of a [http://newshare.typepad.com/jtm2008sv/2008/02/a-plea-for-jour.html panel at Georgia Tech in January]:
 
  
* What tools can we use to better spot patterns and emerging issues?
+
===Comments of [http://www.analyticjournalism.com/ Tom Johnson]===
* What's the most efficient way to disseminate all of the information and insights we're receiving?
+
* How can we measure trust and confidence?
+
  
At the same Georgia Tech event, Haeg's colleague in Minnesota, Michael Skoler, said technologists can help journalists by advancing work on:
+
'''EX Tom Johnson''':
  
* Filtering

Seems to me that #3 ("trust") is closely related to #8 and #9.  
* Fact-based social networking tools
+
* Advancing authentication networks that assure both trust and confidentiality
+
* Games that assist public-data analysis.
+
  
And also in Atlanta, Yahoo senior vp Chris Barr offered this short list of things he hopes technologists will invent to help news and journalism:
+
And "every phone is a camera."
  
*Self-identifying content
+
I would also suggest that GIS and GPS are driving and will drive a ton of new activities, and the industry doesn't have much of a clue about what these things are and how they can be used. (EVERY story has geographic aspects.)  So how do we employ those tools as additional ways to understand phenomena and to better get the story to people who will care about it.   
*Easier-to-use tools to publish to multiple distribution outlets
+
*Easier user-generated content
+
*Persistent real-time feeds (including video and audio)
+
*Ubiquitous personalization
+
*Massive localization
+

+
*Architecting an OS for Democracy (e.g., FCC reg’s as the blueprint for  information diffusion)

Comments of Tom Johnson

EX Tom Johnson:

Seems to me that #3 ("trust") is closely related to #8 and #9.

And "every phone is a camera."

I would also suggest that GIS and GPS are driving and will drive a ton of new activities, and the industry doesn't have much of a clue about what these things are and how they can be used. (EVERY story has geographic aspects.) So how do we employ those tools as additional ways to understand phenomena and to better get the story to people who will care about it.

Additionally, we are in the very early stages of something for which we do not quite have a vocabulary yet, but there are examples. See FreeRice.com[1] or the project translating the instructions for the One Laptop Per Child project into obscure languages [2] And I'm just working on a project that will try to link persons unknown in the Spanish-speaking world to translate the manual(s) for Netlogo [3]into Spanish. All this as an open source/effort.

These are examples of some new form of global cooperation using digital tools for a common objective. They happen, I hope, with very little direct management, yet new resources -- with great but local utility -- emerge. Again, with relatively little investment except by those who (a) originally create the software and (b)those who have the time and inclination to put it to work.

If these are emergent trends, what's the impact on journalism? (1) They further undermine the elitist concept of "central authority," which journalism has long claimed. (2)These examples are taking place without concern for government authority or national/state legal systems. (3) They are taking place without the need outside traditional political systems and, thereby, presenting more opportunity to citizen participation in a way that enriches the political stew. (See this reporting on SuperDeligates [4]) (4) There are rapidly expanding tools for data visualization, which, when done well, can deliver much more insight than text. (See Music Listening History [5]
