Jeff Jarvis writes the blog Buzz Machine,  which tracks all the ups and downs of new media, old media, technology, citizen journalism, etc. Jarvis is director of the new-media program at The City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.

A sentence from a post the other day about the death of the press caught my eye:

“The key to survival is reinventing what we do.”

He’s referring to journalists/media here. You students are the “reinventers” and your advantage is you don’t come with the baggage of how things used to be done or “should” be done.
