Beginning Baseball: Is Joe Mauer Worth the Extra Buck?

Editor’s note: Amanda Lawson is a lifelong Green Bay Packers fan who is getting into baseball for the first time this year. After much deliberation and counsel, Amanda settled on the Minnesota Twins as her team. With “Beginning Baseball” Amanda is documenting her first season of baseball fandom.

Last Friday, the Twins reactivated Joe Mauer from the DL, marking his return from two long months of recovery. Twins fans everywhere celebrated.

However, Mauer’s long break away from the game has brought up some questioning among fans and some cynicism among the skeptics. After signing an eight-year contract extension with the Twins (worth $184 million) in May of 2010, chatter has developed about whether the organization invested their money wisely.

joe-mauer-twinsThe Dollar Facts

Joe Mauer is the highest paid player for the Minnesota Twins, the highest paid catcher in the MLB, and the fifth highest paid player in the MLB overall. Here’s a list of the players who rank above Mauer:

  1. Alex Rodriguez, Third Baseman, New York Yankees, $32,000,000
  2. Vernon Wells, Left Fielder, Los Angeles Angels, $26,187,500
  3. CC Sabathia, Pitcher, New York Yankees, $24,285,714
  4. Mark Teixeira, First Baseman, New York Yankees, $23,125,000

He’s the only catcher in the list of top 20 highest paid MLB players. In short, Mauer makes some cash.

Rough Start in the Contract

This year began with a rough start for Mauer. While struggling to recover from knee surgery, he missed the majority of spring training. About a week into the regular season, he was put on the DL, and team doctors determined his bilateral leg weakness was due to too light of training before the regular season.

So the questions began to appear: Is Mauer worth the extra dollar? Is the bilateral weakness the beginning to the end? Will he still have the same impact as he did before? Will he make it to the end of his contract?

Well, let’s take a look at the Twins without him.

Ok, let’s not.

We all know it wasn’t pretty. Was that all because of Mauer? No. I don’t believe one player can have that kind of impact on a team. Could Mauer have changed the outcome of some of those games though? Definitely.

And now you’re thinking, “Amanda, you haven’t been a fan long enough to watch him play. How do you know?”

Good point. And frankly, I wasn’t sure how to judge the greatness of a catcher. Luckily, there is this beautiful thing called the internet. What I found led me to believe that Joe Mauer is a hidden treasure that many teams never find in a catcher.

Three reasons Mauer’s worth the money:

1. He does his job, and he does it well.

Mauer is known for his quick thinking to make the defensive plays happen. He works with his pitcher to make them a dynamic duo ready to shutdown the offense. From understanding the pitch to focusing on the players on base, Mauer is capable of multitasking at an elite level needed to be as successful as he is. I found this great little article that helped break down his success.

2. He has experience.

As the first pick for the Twins in the 2001 draft, Mauer has played in the MLB and with the Twins for a while now. He has proven that he is capable of taking on the pressure of the Majors and driving his team toward success.

3. Oh and he can rake.

Mauer was the AL Batting Champion in 2005, 2008 and 2009. He also won the Silver Slugger Award in 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Mauer has a career batting average of .326. Most catchers do NOT have this much success in their batting career.

While some fans question whether or not the Twins made a wise investment in Mauer, I will be watching his strong return with confidence and optimism. Being put on the DL may have been just what Mauer needed to get his mind and body ready for the balance of the season. Two months may seem like a long, expensive time for a key player to sit out, but it is definitely worth it if the player can turn some of the close losses into victories.

Welcome back, Mr. Mauer.

All of the information Newton gave us was all in front of our faces the entire time, I just never put two and two together. For example, when Newton presented the pictures about Star Trek and the cell phone, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the iPad, and Skype from the Jetsons, I was in shock that I have never noticed that before. What really impressed me was how he predicted the future from the movies and television shows we have now. It is scary to me that we are expecting to have media implants that will make us humans part of technology. It is frightening! Newton said that at some point in time, people will be able to answer questions after they have passed away. It is overwhelming, but we cannot stop it now. In Newton’s words, “Each American generation comes of age as a different news medium is rising.”

  469. Although Eric Newton’s lecture is titled with the word “News” in it, his topic revolves around the future in a much more general sense. He analyzes the growth of society and the means by which it communicates information, and how it changes from generation to generation, throughout American history. It was a very thorough and in depth analysis, and his expert insight shaped the information: society trends, following patterns and cycles. He pointed out several of these patterns, such as the 80-year crisis cycle – major crises occur once every eighty years or so. When the dates are brought to light, he predicts that a crisis should be occurring right now, during this current generation. He believes that World War 3.0 has already begun as the crisis of our generation; the cyber-war. I felt that this was a very interesting look at how cyber interaction works, and he made a lot of sense. Nations are developing armies of cyber hackers, coding genii intended to either protect the nation’s cyber vault or hack into the cyberspace of another nation. After this, though, was when Newton’s lecture began to twist off the typical Must-See-Monday track, and onto something else entirely: he began to predict the future, as it will unfold, generation by generation. His predictions go as far as machines virtually exceeding humans in every possible sense. Then he returns to the original topic, and wraps it up with a look at how that would impact journalism. Basically, his argument was simple: the people who believe that the current media jobs will still be available in ten years are out of their minds. The media involves with society, and as society blossoms with the rapid growth of technological advances, media jobs will rapidly change alongside it.

  470. Mr. Newton began his lecture by explaining the beginning of news. He in gave a detailed description of history’s “first ever” news story. After quickly summarizing the history of media Mr. Newton reached the topic which we had all come to learn about, the future of media. Our desired major is such a rapidly changing field few if any have an idea of where future media may go. Mr. Newton informed us that there will most certainly be a time in which the print newspaper completely drops out of existence. From that point the world will engage in an all-out cyber battle which Mr. Newton called “World War 3.0.” In around one-hundred years Mr. Newton mentioned something known as the singularity. The singularity is very similar to the Matrix. Not only will it eliminate a need for schools but for newspapers and television news and many other forms of media. With the singularity humans are basically able to plug in and over night or in a matter of minutes learn whatever they please. The future in my opinion is somewhat troubling. However, Mr. Newton encouraged his audience and provided tips on how to embrace the future of media and potentially prosper in our ever changing field of profession.

  471. Tonight’s discussion with Eric Newton about the history and evolution of journalism answered an important question aspiring journalists might have- how can we shape the future of the media world? Newton informed us about the constantly changing patterns of the media. He concluded with the future of journalism and what it ultimately holds for writers and reporters involved in this field. As students from the millennial generation, we have the power to affect our future and make even further progress with the digital age. Newton discussed the unknown influence of science fiction writers and how they “used their imaginations” to create a story and see their vision come to fruition. It is stimulating that a successful journalist encourages his audience to “think crazy” and write unconventionally in order to produce thriving stories. The only idea that I find hard to accept is the future of the hyper media and discovery of artificial intelligence. Understanding the history and fast-developing technology, this concept seems likely but also shocking that it could potentially happen in our lifetime. Throughout every generation, however, journalism is similarly defined: “the extensive search for truth” and a source for providing critical information to people helping to build and improve society.

  472. In the words of Eric Newton, “we need to think off the planet crazy” in order to move forward into the future. It is almost scary how the movement of technology has evolved in such a short amount of time. When you really think about it cell phones and apple products of today have essentially taken over our world in a matter of a few decades. In a world where the consumer is always wanting more and the inventor can never make his or her invention “perfect” our technology will never stop evolving. So when do we begin to put limits on our evolution? Will monsters that were once a fragment of one’s imagination run our future society? I can only hope that our future generations will not succumb to the desires of wanting more. Although the latest technologies are what we see as a way of survival, I think that following the cycle of crisis and inventing such “off the planet crazy” technologies such as cranial downloads, media implants, and newsbots may be taking our constant progression a little too far. There will come a time when the cycle must be broken to keep our society well…a society.

  473. Can I just say what a relief to find a person that genuinely knows what they’re talking about on the net. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

  474. fantastic publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the other experts of this sector do not realize this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

  475. Tonight I attended Eric Newton’s lecture entitled “The History of the Future of News: What 1767 tells us about 2100.” Newton, the Senior Advisor to the President of the Knight Foundation, discussed basically how journalism is changing as a result of the digital age. Newton told us, “We predict the future based on what we know,” but because technology is changing, we cannot accurately predict what the future is going to look like. He went through at least ten cycles that people have experienced in history based on the media aspect, starting with pamphlets and partisan weekly newspapers to mobile devices and social media. Newton also projected what the future might be like if new forms of media are constantly changing. He used examples like robotics, nanotechnology and telepathy. While he did go into some depth of these cycles and potential cycles, Newton admitted that we are “just scratching the surface of the digital age.” But as he closed, Newton encouraged the aspiring journalists by saying, “To get to the future, someone has to shape it. And that gets to be you.” It is exciting to know that with all of the changes in journalism today and the technology aspect of it, I get to be a part of it and help shape the future.

  476. Tonight’s Must See Monday was one that I have been looking forward to for a while. Eric Newton, senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, was our guest speaker who spoke to all of us about the future of journalism as it may look today. This was also very important for me to attend due to the fact that it is the last posting for Cronkite Conversations that will be accepted for the Christiane Amanpour luncheon.“Do you have any idea how lucky you are?” Newton began the night. He asked us this to get us to think about our future at the Cronkite School. His first point was about the digital age and the unexpected outcomes.We time traveled through time to explore the four ages of human communication. The categories included visual, language, mass media and digital. These began from 1-2 m BC all the way up through 1991 AD.There were approximately 1 million years of visual media until verbal media came along and skyrocketed. This interested me because I knew this all along, I just never thought about it in this context which makes the topic sound huge.Newton showed us some different journalism perspectives that showed how fiction writers dream up things that people can’t seem to calculate. The first principal is to think crazy and unconventional to find something new and ground breaking. We talk about this a lot in journalism to get students to think of ways to be innovative and get entrepreneurship visions started.I found one of his slides very interesting which showed how each generation is raised and comes of age as a different news medium is rising. He stated that about 80 years there has been a crisis and a great awakening. This reminds me of some of Aaron Browns Must See Monday lectures in which he tried to express that America had not recovered over time due to 9/11.I never thought I would visualize and experience so many different patterns over time in which media and journalism evolved before our eyes. I have known that we are in a changing generation that accesses more technologies than in the past which shows American progress. I don’t think I ever would have seen how large this topic is had I not attended this amazing Must See Monday with Eric Newton.

  477. V.P. John Hall will participate.

  478. Hello, I do think your site could possibly be having browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent blog!

  479. In crisis situations, reporters have two responsibilities. The first is to get the story. The second is to get it without causing any further damage. As Ina Jaffe said, “When you walk into these situations, don’t make it worse.” She furthered that it also isn’t the job of the reporter to make things better either. We aren’t social workers, she said. However, journalists can’t get the information we need for a story unless we behave a certain way. If we act like automatons, our subjects won’t talk to us. However, if we are too sympathetic to our subjects, we interfere with the story and cross professional boundaries. If there is anything I learned tonight, it’s that reporters walk a fine line between their professional duties and their duties as a human being when covering crises. This balancing act seemed to have taken a toll on both speakers. Jaffe said that she would often bury the emotions and not cry about them until a week after they ended. This is the sort of trauma characteristic of disaster victims or relief workers. I never thought that the same thing would apply to reporters.

  480. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little homework on this. And he actually bought me lunch simply because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this issue here on your web page.

  481. Eric Newton blew the roof off of the Cronkite institute! His farfetched yet seemingly possible theory of media history left the audience wondering how the movies and shows they watched in their youth predicted the now present future. His words “Science fiction is doing a better job at bridging history than the experts” had the audiences’ gears turning. No matter how crazy Newton’s theory might seem, once one takes a look at the evolution of human communication his ideas do not seem so impossible. We live in a world that has evolved from natural, cyclical, and linear ways of thinking to a world that utilizes a multi-platform broadband connection to stay in touch. The future is not set in stone and he showed us that with our known capability to exponentially increase the speed of communication. It is evident in our past; from pamphlets, to partisan weekly newspapers, to the penny press papers, to the contemporary speed of The Associated Press, as well as in the cycle of awakenings or crisis that some experts say reach back to the dawn of human communication. His words and his evidence piqued at my imagination, raising images of a future where there are no longer humans and machines but a hybrid, a being so intelligent that its only goal is to achieve perfection. Achieve perfection in a cyber world where imagination and battlefronts have no boundaries, where the newest apple technology and the latest fashion trend are simultaneous, where news is where you want it to be and you are where the news is. A world where everyone is a part of the same sentient environment, where mankind is no longer at war with itself but with species that are not of flesh and blood but of gigs and bytes. We have definitely crossed into a new era unlike any the world has ever seen; the possibilities extend beyond the last horizon. We have barely scratched the surface of this new digital age. It pleases me to know that myself as well as my peers are the architect that drives this massive engine of change. We will be the ones who deal with the truthfulness and accuracy of the media, the ones who will master this technology based reporting, evolve with every new digital tool, the ones who rewrite the code of ethics, and the ones who will deal with all the results. It is us that execute the plans that build a culture of continuous change.

  482. Eric Newton, the senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, sat down with his audience, which included many students of the Cronkite school, to discuss the future of news. His predictions of the future baffled many in the crowd but I was skeptical to believe in such fairytales. He talked about futuristic gadgets and things that would most likely be associated with Science Fiction movies, which ironically is what he alluded to several times, including popular movies and shows such as the Matrix, Star Trek, and I-Robot. But I was too smart to believe these things. After all, I AM a Cronkite student. As he continued to talk, however; I was left wondering whether these things were feasible, especially when he got to the gloomier portion of his speech. He talked about two possible world wars, both of which could happen in our life times. I was left fascinated thinking about the possible destruction of the world as we know it, but the creation of a world that we have yet to know. The possibilities for Journalism in the future is infinite. There is no limit to what we might do.

  483. Everyone loves it when individuals come together and share ideas. Great site, stick with it!

  484. Looking at a picture of 1999 New York, it is hard to imagine how someone would ever believe this picture’s futuristic qualities would be evident eleven years ago, let alone today. Eric Newton intrigues the crowd by posing the question “what went wrong in this picture?” Overall it was many things that contributed to the photo’s unnatural characteristics. These traits are: multi-time, science fiction writers, books and TV shows/movies. All of these implements allow us the knowledge of what the future has in store for media. Noticing trends, like Great Awakenings happening every eighty years, enhances the accuracy of the predictions that can take place. It is important for us journalist majors to be aware of what the future has in stake. As Newton said “we must focus on not what has been invented, but how the things exponentially grew.” Eric Newton’s presentation was very educational and interesting—especially when he showed a timeline of the things predicted to come all the way up to the year of 2100. Who would have thought there would be a WW4.0 of humans vs. robotics, like the iRobot? His conclusion was inspirational. It made me want to go out and “master a computer assisted reporting/design, watch a lot more science fiction, fool around with a new digital tool every day [and] rewrite [the] codes of ethics.”

  485. Tonight, Eric Newton opened my eyes to the future of journalism – to what the world of journalism will be like in 2110. I’m not sure how I feel about the future of journalism – or the future of this planet for that matter, considering the world will be taken over by robots or we will all be living on the planet of Pandora and surrounded by rather large blue people for some ungodly and inexplicable reason.I don’t know how I feel about this.At all…For one, if the world is taken over by robots, or even if we are peaceably coexisting… who would a news organization rather hire? …a human with all of our human problems and unpredictability, or a robot with no feelings and dependability through the roof? (Through the roof.) Also, the robots will probably work for less considering they don’t need to buy the necessities humans need. (Like food, for example.) They have no mouths to feed. They have no bacon to bring home. The alternative isn’t really any better. Pandora, really? I like Earth. Pandora doesn’t really seem like the ideal place to live. I need a Walmart and a Starbucks to thrive. That’s all I ask for, low prices and excellent coffee… and I doubt the blue-skinned, sapient humanoids know how to make good coffee, if coffee even exists on that planet. (No offense to the Na’vi. One love, yo.)And what would I write about on the planet of Pandora? It’s a rather peaceful place, I imagine. (As long as we don’t bulldoze it looking for unobtainium. I mean, really, us?) And I guess I could open the Good News Times, but that’s no fun… I don’t think journalists pray for bad things to happen, but hey, it makes a good story. You never see the headline “NOBODY GOT SHOT IN PHOENIX TODAY” on the cover of the Arizona Republic. I guess I could do an in-depth piece on the “mother goddess,” Eywa… but does ANYONE even know anything about her… besides the fact that she’s a healing tree that’s alive..? No, me either.Well… this is depressing.

  486. Mr. Newton began his lecture by explaining the beginning of news. He in gave a detailed description of history’s “first ever” news story. After quickly summarizing the history of media Mr. Newton reached the topic which we had all come to learn about, the future of media. Our desired major is such a rapidly changing field few if any have an idea of where future media may go.

The singularity is very similar to the Matrix. Not only will it eliminate a need for schools but for newspapers and television news and many other forms of media.

However, Mr. Newton encouraged his audience and provided tips on how to embrace the future of media and potentially prosper in our ever changing field of profession.

  487. How would you feel if someone told you there was going to be a world war 3.0 consisting of humans vs the non-humans? Or what if the media is run by artificial intelligence such as robots and smart grids? Well Eric Newton spoke in the First Amendment Forum yesterday and touched on the future of technology with journalism. He talked about how many things were thought up before they were ever invented like Star Trek coming up with the idea for a cell phone, and the Jetsons coming up with Skype. Newton tried predicting the future with the past by finding the similar patterns and this was amazing to me. The whole time, I wanted to hear more and more about how Eric Newton thought about the future and how he went approaching it. It is kind of intimidating know that we are always moving forward and never moving back, and now, it seems like the pace we are doing it at is accelerating. This is the evolution of journalism, and I feel honored to be right in the middle of it, living life on the fast lane. It’s scary to think that one day, people may be able to learn with a chip being installed to our brains, or having possible telekinesis. We don’t know how far technology is moving but we do know it is moving fast and it’s better to stay on top of it before it tries getting on top of us.

  488. Briefly after Dean Callahan’s warm introduction of Eric Newton, Cronkite students divulged into a world that surpasses yesterday and has the ability to fulfill our most bizarre childhood dreams; a world of tomorrow. Eric touched on journalism throughout the ages; going beyond past forms, he gave insight on how technological advances will change the face of journalism. Mr. Newton linked technology utilized in old television shows, such as The Jetsons and Star Trek, to devices, we deem as practical today in the 21st century. While regular people predict the future based on their knowledge, we, as journalists, must be innovative in order to create and to spark progress. Mr. Newton provided insight on future generations in a very organized and clear way. The first, which is visionary, will be the rise of intelligence in media form including, robotics and artificial intelligence. The Hybrid generation will bring about the rise of bio media, which will spark the use of media implants and will introduce enhanced human capacities. The courageous generation will be the rise of hyper media, a science fiction based type of media will emerge. The information Mr. Eric Newton shared at this Must See Monday event was thought-provoking. His level of expertise and passion on the topic he covered was apparent. As for me, I cannot wait to see what the future holds and hope to witness some of Mr. Newton’s outrageous predictions.

  489. Before addressing the myth of the English professor, there are some real differences I experienced in grad school here and at the University of Leicester. While abroad: 1. Faculty went on strike one day in protest for higher wages, which closed down the entire university 2. Graduates prepare tea-time for the seminar break, rather than everyone rushing out (to smoke?). 3. One professor adds Saturday classes to be held in her office if not enough material is covered 4. The U of L has a Paternoster, an “elevator” in constant motion without doors in which people hop in and out. My favorite book on the myths of English professors is David Lodge’s Trading Places. For a scholar exchange program, Morris Zapp from Euphoric State University (US)and Philip Swallow from the University of Rummidge (UK) experience the 1960s on the other side of the Atlantic. (At one point, Swallow entertains at a faculty dinner: he has everyone play a game in which they state what they have not read. A Shakespeare scholar fesses up to not having read what turns out to be the faculty’s highest esteemed text for that field. He later does not get tenure because of this gap in his reading). I teach TP in Transatlantic Literature. The novels in this course express myths between the US and UK when characters encounter the other side of the pond.

  490. Eric Newton, Senior Advisor to the President of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation gave Cronkite students a glimpse into the future tonight. The future, as Newton described it, is one in which journalism and mass communication is constantly changing, just as it has for centuries. Newton’s future involves everything from “news bots” to “cranial implants.” Technology that currently feels at home in a science fiction movie but according to Newton the future he described “is definitely crazy so it might just happen.” In fact science fiction is exactly what Newton points to if we want a peek of what the future may have in store for us. Shows like Star Trek and The Jetsons have already demonstrated this by predicting current technology like cell phones and Skype. As members of the beginning of the digital age Newton believes we are simply “scratching the surface” of what this era has in store for us. As technology progresses so will the future of journalism. “The technology has driven the future of news,” said Newton.

  491. Thanks for sharing. Kind regardsAntonella

  492. Great internet site! It looks really expert! Maintain the excellent job!Revolve Clothing

  493. In tonight’s Must See Mondays lecture, Eric Newton really addressed some point about how media and its connection to quality journalism. With up and coming technology advances happening everyday, people in their 20’s have the biggest effect on news media which effect the rest of the people. Eric Newton stated that journalism is a “fair, accurate, contextual search for truth that provides citizens with the information [journalists] need to run their communities and their lives.” I completely agree and when you really look into things its so interesting how so many advances are happened based on ideas from the past. Some points that I never would have brought attention to would be the examples he used about the cell phone inventor got his idea for the creation of a phone by watching Star Trek. I find that so interesting because us humans keep building off of others to create new inventions and journalists are the backbone of change for the world. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for the changing new media and the emergence of mobile and social media.

  494. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, nonetheless I truly thought you would have something interesting to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

  495. Although the sci-fi genre has long remained in the form of fiction, it has recently taken a turn to being a predictor of the future. As presented by Eric Newton at this week’s Must See Monday, technology has risen exponentially over the last half of the century. This increase in technological advancement has led to outcomes that, as Newton pointed out, have drawn parallels to the fictitious inventions found in sci-fi films and writings. Though Newton’s explanations seemed outlandish at first, they became logical as he efficiently pointed out and explained the similarities found between science fiction and reality. While I am still unsure as to whether or not humanity will ever reach the period of new enlightenment, or Omni Media, I do agree with Newton on the terms that today’s youth will be the leaders of not only journalism but also society. Even though this cyclical nature of society has always been in place, today’s technology has put the field of journalism in a unique and opportunistic position for younger generations to redefine the ideals of journalism. Taking the advice of Newton, as leaders of tomorrow’s news, today’s journalists need to start thinking outside the box and work with traditionalists to efficiently update journalism and put it in a position for a successful future.

  496. Tonight’s movie was quite the treat! I was intrigued to watch The Pelican Brief, filled with lots of Denzel, and Julia Roberts of course, who is one of my favorite actresses. The combination of great actors, a thrilling plot and plenty of suspense thrown in made tonight’s feature my favorite movie shown in The First Amendment Forum to date. Not only was this movie about law and journalism, it also had a ton of unexpected twists! I was so shocked and horrified when the car bomb exploded and the whole audience seriously jumped in their seats. And the intense scene where the assassin was approaching the two main characters in the parking garage and the dog pops out of the car I was not prepared for at all! This movie was so engaging that when the disk stopped I was actually upset. Turns out it just needed to be turned over because it is old school I suppose. I truly enjoyed The Pelican Brief and I would recommend for everyone to watch it because it appeals to all audiences. What a wonderful way to spend my Wednesday night!

  497. I agree with what Victor said about finding a career path that is very exciting to you. You’ll spend so much time working during your life that you should find something you really like and attempt to build a career around that subject. Good luck!

  498. Today’s Must See Monday discussion was led by, Eric Newton, Senior Advisor to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. This discussion was centered on the development of media throughout the ages and how it has made such a profound impact in today’s world of journalism and mass communications. Throughout the lecture, Mr. Newton made it very clear about what communications will be like within the next 100 years. He controlled his theories on 4 main principles consisting of 1. Profoundly new ages of digital communications, 2.Science fiction bridging history and philosophy, 3. Undiscovered patterns in the history of news, and 4. People in their 20’s play key role in inventing news media. With these 4 principles, it has been predicted that within time the digital age will expand from what it is now to something so much more profound such as the “Hyper Media” generation. In this generation, media will be more courageous and more science fictional, ultimately leading to World War 4.0. This Must See Monday was a great explanation of how media in the digital age develops, and what we can expect t happen within the future of Journalism.

  499. The best information i have found exactly here. Keep going Thank you

  500. Good post. I will be dealing with some of these issues as well..

  501. I never thought that I would see a connection between the media cycles and science-fiction. Science-fiction always seemed like an unreal reality. Eric Newton showed that science-fiction can become reality. In his presentation he showed that the “crazy” thinking of science-fiction mirrors the technology we have today. “The Jetsons” had Skype. “Star Trek” used cell phones. “2001: A Space Odyssey” had the iPad. “The Jetsons,” “Star Trek” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” were created in the 1960s which was decades before any of these technologies were created. The 1960s were a part of Generation X whose big media medium was TV newscast. The technologies during this era included satellite, cable and video tape. These technologies were not even close to what was being presented on TV and film. Not many people would think that technology of “Star Trek” or “The Jetsons” would become a reality about four decades later.Newton pointed out that we tend base what the future will be like from what we know. In the 1960s, the people only knew a limited amount of what technology could be. Eric Newton said to predict the future we must think “crazy.” There was someone who thought “crazy” and brought their ideas to reality. These ideas shaped how we use technology and how we get our news. Each generation has grown up with a different media medium. It will be interesting to see what technologies the next generations use as a medium or what science-fiction technology will be made into reality. After listening to his presentation, the possibilities of what the future could be seem endless.

  502. vRMGQG Pretty! This has been an incredibly wonderful post. Thanks for providing this info.

  503. bookmarked!!, I love your site!

  504. Must See Monday opened with Dean Callahan talking about the career of the speaker, telling about his career as an editor for award winning papers and eventually becoming the senior adviser for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The speaker, Eric Newton, drew big crowds with talks about where the future of journalism was headed and information’s humble beginnings. Graphs showed a spike in information with the coming of the internet, but Newton said technology has been foretold by science fiction shows. He proceeded to show pictures of Star Trek and 2001, A Space Odyssey. The Star Trek picture showed Captain Kirk with a communicator, which Newton said, was the muse for the idea of the cell phone. The Space Odyssey picture was the picture of the pilot with what looked like an i-pad. Newton also showed off a picture of the Jetsons with a futuristic twitter. Newton continued with talks about digital war-fare and the coming of a fourth World War, in which men were facing machines for survival, much like the Matrix. He finished the presentation with a quote from Isaac Newton. “Somewhere in that ocean of truth lies the future of news. I wish you all happy sailing.”

  505. usually posts some really exciting stuff like this. If you are new to this site

  506. How would you feel if someone told you there was going to be a world war 3.0 consisting of humans vs the non-humans? Or what if the media is run by artificial intelligence such as robots and smart grids? Well Eric Newton spoke in the First Amendment Forum yesterday and touched on the future of technology with journalism. He talked about how many things were thought up before they were ever invented like Star Trek coming up with the idea for a cell phone, and the Jetsons coming up with Skype. Newton tried predicting the future with the past by finding the similar patterns and this was amazing to me. The whole time, I wanted to hear more and more about how Eric Newton thought about the future and how he went approaching it. It is kind of intimidating know that we are always moving forward and never moving back, and now, it seems like the pace we are doing it at is accelerating. This is the evolution of journalism, and I feel honored to be right in the middle of it, living life on the fast lane. It’s scary to think that one day, people may be able to learn with a chip being installed to our brains, or having possible telekinesis. We don’t know how far technology is moving but we do know it is moving fast and it’s better to stay on top of it before it tries getting on top of us.

  507. In today’s Must See Monday, Eric Newton definitely captured my attention. Mr. Newton’s points and analysis of the past make perfect sense-because it is obvious when we look back. However, he brought up an excellent point about the future. If we only imagine what falls in line with the present then it is not innovation. In his analysis, Eric Newton presented a few timeless truths. The most inspiring and encouraging thing was hearing him say “ People in their 20s play a key role in developing new media… always have.” We do not have to wait to start thinking of new things, in fact, we should not wait at all. We have so many tools at our disposal. At the very least, we can start blogging and using social media. However, we also have the support of student organizations and programs. This is the time for change. Mr. Newton made another excellent point when he said, “ All the things you do now become exponentially more important as technology becomes exponentially larger.” It will become increasingly easier for people to abuse the news through technology which will create a larger demand for those who uphold journalistic values. It will also become more difficult to keep the audience interested, which will challenge journalists to be the very best and most creative. We’re the pioneers of the future.

  508. Very neat blog article.Much thanks again. Great.

  509. It as actually a nice and useful piece of information. I am satisfied that you shared this useful tidbit with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

  510. You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren at afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

  511. I think this is a real great blog post. Really Cool.

  512. indeed, analysis is paying off. sure, study is paying off. Take pleasure in the entry you given.. sure, research is paying off.

  513. Tonight Eric Newton spoke to us about the future of Journalism and what technology in media will look like just before the 22nd century. He gave us a timeline that looked pretty interesting to me. Eric believes that communication is on the exponential rise and that we predict the future based on what we know. The future is always changing and there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s inevitable. Eric said something that I thought was pretty interesting. “Science fiction writers are better at predicting the future than the experts.” It’s sad, but true. Everything he was saying in his presentation was true. Like how every 80 years there has been a crisis or an awakening. He used examples like The Revolutionary War to The Civil War and then finally to World War II. Eric predicts that the next world war will be a cyber war. He believes its happening now. I thought his whole presentation was enlightening and really had me thinking into the future.

  514. Right here is the right website for anyone who wants to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic which has been written about for years. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  515. Seeing the future of journalism would be like asking a Caveman to give a speech. It’s nearly impossible. Eric Newton, senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation knows that one cannot see the future of journalism because journalism is something that needs to be monitored closely. Within each decade, journalism has transformed immensely. From the “first” news story of “Ahhhh” as a caveman would put it, all the way into moveable type and online news stories in the present day. Newton told us tonight that Digital age is a new age and as we move through time, we slowly start to notice the big differences in how things are done. We saw forms of Skype in the television show “The Jetsons” in 1964. Skype was created officially in 2003. The iPad was seen in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apple created the actual product in 2010. Finally, we saw forms of a cellular device in “Star Trek” which is actually how the creator of the cell phone came up with the idea.These three examples prove that “Each American generation comes of age as a different news medium is rising.”Newton also said “Every 80 years there’s been a great awakening” and we will eventually be so far into the digital age that we will enter in World War 4.0, which is the human race vs. the non-human environment around us.If you look back in time, you will notice that five decades ago, five years, five months even five days ago, the world was different and it will continue to be different as we move into our future of digital news.

  516. According to Eric Newton of the Knight Foundation, my grandchildren will have computers attached to their brains. No, Newton doesn’t have a crystal ball—he has a formula of predicting the future of media based on patterns of communication in the past, a thorough investigation of media as it is today, and even by taking some inspiration from science fiction (he presented three modern technologies, Skype, cell phones and the iPad, and showed us how they were “predicted” by science fiction almost half a century ago in “The Jetsons,” “Star Trek” and 2001: A Space Odyssey, respectively). The underlying theme of the entire Must See Monday was the fact that the future is “crazy.” Although Newton is understandably proud of his formula, it really could just as kooky as Harold Camping’s rapture prediction earlier this year. Newton suggested that students prepare themselves by learning to perform in the future that has been/is being predicted, while also being flexible to a random turn-of-events.

  517. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I actually believed you would have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

  687. The Cronkite School ended the semester with a Must See Monday that explored the great strides students are making as digital media entrepreneurs. Dan Gillmor and CJ Cornell introduced four students who accepted a challenge and dove head first into the ambiguous world of entrepreneurship. Each had their own project that proved innovation in new media is the next step in journalism. From community service to a modern day town crier the students have taken a look at what people need and how to address that need with what the community already has. The display of student projects was a glowing affirmation that we have the ability to create our own place in the world. With the intentions to inform the public around us we have the chance to secure ourselves financially as well. New media seems to be a constant in every facet of life today. With the release of the iPad, continuous updates to our favorite search engines, or the LCD screens that play while we pump our gas, the outlet for journalism is growing and these students are taking full advantage of it. This Must See Monday confirms that the Cronkite School is on the cusp of innovation; adapting to the rapid changes that effect the world of journalism every day, like the opportunities for students through the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship, ensures that the school is molding Journalists that will thrive.

  688. I’m so happy to read this. This is the kind of info that needs to be given and not the random misinformation that’s at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.

  689. Cronkite Night At the Movies“The Pelican Brief” At the beginning of this thrilling movie I, personally, had no idea what the connection was between this movie and journalism. As the movie progressed, though, the connection became clear. Denzel Washington’s character provided an exceptional view of what an investigative reporter does and how they provide a pivotal role to the journalism society. Although this story was based off a book, it is quite possible that something of this nature could happen in real life. This movie provides a visual of how exciting and beneficial investigative journalism can be. The loss of such in depth and accurate reporting has been slightly lost in today’s journalism market, which is quite unsettling. Although investigative reporting is expensive, the field will eventually pay itself off by providing the audience with what is needed and wanted. “The Pelican Brief” was a thrilling to watch, but most of all it placed investigative journalism in a sincere light.

  690. Hi Matt,Looks like the turnout in Philly is good for Sestack. What’s your read on that election with a high turnout?

  691. It would be an understatement to say that my mind was blown at tonight’s Must See Monday. Among a couple other things that changed in me tonight is my respect for science-fiction. Before Eric Newton’s lecture, my feelings of science fiction was the same as my feelings on fairytales: unrealistic and a waste of time. I’ll admit I judged science fiction without any real knowledge on it. Nonetheless, my new found understanding for the subject has raised many questions and opened many possibilities in my head. Eric Newton talked about the ever changing media and how it is portrayed. These days, thinking out of the box is simply not enough. “Think crazy” should be coined the new expression for innovators in this digital age. He emphasized that the media changes every so often due to crisis. It is an almost comforting thought that out of catastrophe comes awakenings. The cyber generation that boomed from 9-11 and the recession is fascinating but not as intriguing generation visionary and generation hybrid. The thought of robotics, media implants and a war against machines is a little intimidating but now seems more likely to happen. Once the lecture hit the Enlightened generation, I had already felt as if I had been taken far, far into the future. I’m guessing this was “the point of no return” as Eric Newton had said. I must add though that when we get that advanced into technology, I’m not sure I’d want to return to the simpler times. That being said, tonight’s Must See Monday was one that will resonate as I learn and grow with this digital age

  692. Very good presentation.

  693. Tonight, Eric Newton opened my eyes to the future of journalism – to what the world of journalism will be like in 2110. I’m not sure how I feel about the future of journalism – or the future of this planet for that matter, considering the world will be taken over by robots or we will all be living on the planet of Pandora and surrounded by rather large blue people for some ungodly and inexplicable reason.I don’t know how I feel about this.At all…For one, if the world is taken over by robots, or even if we are peaceably coexisting… who would a news organization rather hire? …a human with all of our human problems and unpredictability, or a robot with no feelings and dependability through the roof? (Through the roof.) Also, the robots will probably work for less considering they don’t need to buy the necessities humans need. (Like food, for example.) They have no mouths to feed. They have no bacon to bring home. The alternative isn’t really any better. Pandora, really? I like Earth. Pandora doesn’t really seem like the ideal place to live. I need a Walmart and a Starbucks to thrive. That’s all I ask for, low prices and excellent coffee… and I doubt the blue-skinned, sapient humanoids know how to make good coffee, if coffee even exists on that planet. (No offense to the Na’vi. One love, yo.)And what would I write about on the planet of Pandora? It’s a rather peaceful place, I imagine. (As long as we don’t bulldoze it looking for unobtainium. I mean, really, us?) And I guess I could open the Good News Times, but that’s no fun… I don’t think journalists pray for bad things to happen, but hey, it makes a good story. You never see the headline “NOBODY GOT SHOT IN PHOENIX TODAY” on the cover of the Arizona Republic. I guess I could do an in-depth piece on the “mother goddess,” Eywa… but does ANYONE even know anything about her… besides the fact that she’s a healing tree that’s alive..? No, me either.Well… this is depressing.

  694. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and today each time a comment is added I get four emails concentrating on the same comment. Perhaps there is that is you may remove me from that service? Thanks!

  695. When first entering journalism at this day and age all you hear about is how media is changing and how much technology is affecting it. When Eric Newton first started talking about entering the digital world, I never thought about how crazy some of the things are that we posses today. Such as cell phones that started out as a fantasy on the TV show “Star Trek”. When he put it in this perspective it almost intimidated and frightened me at the thought of what would happen in the future. But as the talk continued, I realized that as intimidating as these ideas may be, they also mean more outlets for creativity in journalism. As more and more information is being possible to be shared, and shared in different ways, I am beginning to realize that leaving my footprint on the journalism world may be as easy as simply writing this blog and posting it everywhere. Technology is changing, and whether we see it as progressing or not, it means that journalism is changing, and being more accessible and more creative, which I believe is always a good thing.

  696. You created some decent points there. I looked over the internet for your issue and discovered most people will go along with together with your site.

  697. I have been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this website. Thanks, I’ll try and check back more often. How frequently do you update your web site?

  698. The Knight Center for Digital Media and Entrepreneurship may be housed in the Cronkite school, but it’s not just for journalists. Students from other programs and campuses at ASU are recognizing the value of entrepreneurship in the age of technology, and their efforts are producing fantastic results.CJ Cornell, Director of the Knight Center, introduced a group of four ASU students who’s entrepreneurial endeavors are both impressive and innovative. What makes these students successful in the world of entrepreneurship? “You have to have a vision,” Cornell said, “You have to have a tolerance for risk.” And, Cornell adds, you have to find the perfect opportunity to provide a necessary service, based on consumer behavior and trends. Liz Smith spoke first, presenting thewatchtreescottsdale.com, a website she created that connects people in the Scottsdale and Gilbert suburbs with volunteer organizations in the East Valley. “We make it easier to make a difference,” Smith said. Her goal is to simplify communication between potential volunteers and the organizations that need them, which will hopefully encourage more residents of the valley to donate their time and energy to a good cause. Next, we heard from Adam Klawonn, creator of CityCirlces.com, a tool that provides the user with news, events and other helpful information based on a fixed interest point, like a light rail stop. Klawonn said that although CityCircles was inspired by Phoenix public transportation, the concept could be implemented virtually anywhere, which is was makes this project such an entrepreneurial success. Anyone who rides the light rail on a regular basis knows the value of reading material for those familiar commutes, so it was fitting that our next presenter be Amanda Crawford, developer of Fictionado. This up-and-coming software will allow people to access a database of short fiction and literature from their mobile device. “It’s the netflix for short stories,” Crawford said. The application, set to launch this summer, will be available by subscription at an affordable price. Our last presenter, Marius Ciocirlan, is a film major who initially got involved at the Knight Center with the vision of creating interactive touch-screen movie posters. His idea has since evolved into Blimee, an online platform that aims to partner with local news outlets and display breaking news, current events and other useful information on LCD screens placed all throughout the city. Ciocirlan said his goal is to make local news more accessible by bringing back “the town crier,” in a modern sense.

  700. Tonight’s Must See Monday invigorated my thoughts for the future and furthered my curiosity for the present. The advisor to the President of the Knight Foundation, Eric Newton, stopped by the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus to present an interesting speech about the digital advancements that are furthering our generation into farthest spaces of the future. From introducing the computers to showing off cell phones to finally advancing into an Apple addicted generation, Newton showed the growth of each of our ages and how we are slowly becoming a completely digital dependent world. Eric had also brought up some new growth in our digital age with some new inventions that included wearable digital media, an enhanced reality and even a digital implant. Throughout his speech Newton also mentioned various predictions cartoons have made, like the Jetsons, with small screens and even Sci-Fi flicks like Star Trek, with cellular devices. Overall tonight’s Must See Monday was extremely thought provoking and showed me how so much of our past has affected our present. Which causes me to wonder, what can be expected of our future?

  701. I loved this entry. Sorry to hear about Mark’s car though. I hope the ghosts in the house don’t have it out for me – so far, my keys haven’t gone missing. Zozo was adorable, as usual, at her birthday party!

  702. Hello! I recently would choose to make a enormous thumbs up for the great information you have here for this post. We are coming back to your blog site for much more soon.

  703. Tonight’s Must See Monday event feels like an important one; besides the fact of double extra credit, people here seem generally interested in the lecture taking place tonight. Walking into the First Amendment Forum today, I was shocked to see the mass amount of people crammed among the floor. I am currently stuck up on the third level sitting in a chair taken from a nearby classroom. This shows to me that finally some people may be beginning to care about these events; and if any, this one is the most important. Newton spent the event time frame discussing the entire world of Journalism: from the past to the present and everything in between. It was incredibly interesting to see how far we have come. He spoke of numerous statistics, one of which spoke out to me. It explained that half of journalist students believed there would not be any/or relevant changes in the next five years. Looking back five years ago, we are a completely different world.

  704. I thought Eric Newton made some interesting points at this Must See Monday. I found his point that science fiction has done a pretty good job of predicting future technology quite accurate and definitely true, with the Jetson’s version of Skype and the cell phones in an episode of Star Trek. Newton was right when he said that to predict what will happen, we have to think outside the box. The depiction of New York in 1999 that he showed us was an incorrect prediction because the technology was what was current when it was made. To even come close to possibly predicting what technological advancements will happen in the future of journalism, journalists need to think way outside the box. As Newton mentioned in his lecture, technology has changed dramatically within the past five years, and even the past year, as social networking sites like Twitter have gotten even more popular. He said that “each US generation comes of age as a different news medium is rising,” and this is definitely true, with just how much technology has changed in the last century. In conclusion, I enjoyed Newton’s lecture, but the extreme technological advancements he talked about honestly made me a little frightened for the future.

  705. Today’s Must See Monday discussion was led by, Eric Newton, Senior Advisor to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. This discussion was centered on the development of media throughout the ages and how it has made such a profound impact in today’s world of journalism and mass communications. Throughout the lecture, Mr. Newton made it very clear about what communications will be like within the next 100 years. He controlled his theories on 4 main principles consisting of 1. Profoundly new ages of digital communications, 2.Science fiction bridging history and philosophy, 3. Undiscovered patterns in the history of news, and 4. People in their 20’s play key role in inventing news media. With these 4 principles, it has been predicted that within time the digital age will expand from what it is now to something so much more profound such as the “Hyper Media” generation. In this generation, media will be more courageous and more science fictional, ultimately leading to World War 4.0. This Must See Monday was a great explanation of how media in the digital age develops, and what we can expect t happen within the future of Journalism.

  706. Someone Sometimes with visits your blog regularly and recommended it in my experience to read as well. The way of writing is excellent and also the content is top-notch. Thanks for that insight you provide the readers!

  707. Looking at a picture of 1999 New York, it is hard to imagine how someone would ever believe this picture’s futuristic qualities would be evident eleven years ago, let alone today. Eric Newton intrigues the crowd by posing the question “what went wrong in this picture?” Overall it was many things that contributed to the photo’s unnatural characteristics. These traits are: multi-time, science fiction writers, books and TV shows/movies. All of these implements allow us the knowledge of what the future has in store for media. Noticing trends, like Great Awakenings happening every eighty years, enhances the accuracy of the predictions that can take place. It is important for us journalist majors to be aware of what the future has in stake. As Newton said “we must focus on not what has been invented, but how the things exponentially grew.” Eric Newton’s presentation was very educational and interesting—especially when he showed a timeline of the things predicted to come all the way up to the year of 2100. Who would have thought there would be a WW4.0 of humans vs. robotics, like the iRobot? His conclusion was inspirational. It made me want to go out and “master a computer assisted reporting/design, watch a lot more science fiction, fool around with a new digital tool every day [and] rewrite [the] codes of ethics.”

  708. It is difficult to predict the future. Eric Newton says that science fiction has been the most accurate at guessing what the future holds. The way that we access media has been a central habit that is constantly subject to change.The web is being consistently improved for one specific reason – to satisfy the needs of the people. It has been simplified, modified and tailored to accommodate the masses. Personal websites developed into blogs. Websites that sold products evolved and took the form of aggregators that sold an array of products from vendors all over the world.The World Wide Web began to take shape as one large network that is interconnected throughout. This should excite journalists. It means that the possibility of news spreading increased indefinitely.The future is going mobile and the news organizations are falling in step. Active browsing and content will encourage reader involvement. Stories are being packaged in a way that makes them more interesting than ever with text, graphic and video elements.The news and the Internet both share a common interest. The common goal is to best serve the consumer. Now, more than ever, these two entities are working together to provide the most effective and entertaining experience for those with access.Newton said to, “Think crazy.” The presentation presented many futuristic ideas that were both terrifying and intriguing. It will be interesting to see how the world will change in our lifetime.

  709. Another great event hosted by the DU Alumni Association. Very organized, fun and great food!

  710. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and adore learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is extremely helpful for me.

  711. In this day and age news and media are constantly changing. As Eric Newton said, “Every American grows up with a new form of media in ascendence.” In the beginning there were pamphlets, which transcended into weekly newspapers and soon daily newspapers and the Associated Press. Over the years media continually evolved and is still doing so. Approximately every 80 years there is a “great awakening” that seems to bring about even more change. Science fiction writers use their imaginations, where as most people tend to predict what will happen based on what is known. The examples Newton used in showing similarities between technology now and science fiction were interesting. They ranged from The Jetsons and Skype to Star Trek and cell phones. The discussion of what is next in media was particularly intriguing to me. The possibilities are endless. There is so much that can be done with technology, but like Newton said, “To get to this future, someone has to shape it.”

  712. This week’s Must See Monday, presented by the Knight Foundation’s Eric Newton, was one of the best in the series that I’ve seen and by far the most “mindblowing”. Newton’s presentation was a highly informative survey of the past of journalism running from revolutionary pamphleteering to contemporary social and mobile media. Further, Newton looked at science fiction to examine and predict potential future trends in information technology. To make his point, Newton drew from theories about inherent historical cycles in the generations of American culture tied to past and present projections of technological advancements. Some of his arguments, drawn from the “technological singularity” postulated by futurist Ray Kurzweil, bordered on disturbing; for instance, on the dehumanizing fusion of man, machine, and information into one united entity. This potential “transhumanism” is likely to occur in some form sometime within the next century. The talk goes to show that the future role and shape of journalism, as well as information-sharing itself, is uncertain and ambiguous. Nevertheless, he concludes that the central ethics of journalism and the function of journalism itself will not lose their fundamental importance in society, whatever society may look like in the future.

  713. you have a very fantastic weblog here! do you need to earn some invite posts on my small blog?

  714. Everyone loves it when people come together and share ideas. Great website, keep it up!

  715. I was also reading a topic like this one from another site.*~”:.

  716. Thomas Jefferson once famously said, “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” The significance of Jefferson’s quote extends beyond his disdain towards bureaucratic governments, but into two principles of journalism: accountability and objectivity. In the movie The Pelican Brief, this meant exposing corrupt government officials—including the president of the United States—in a cover-up that brought about the death of two Supreme Court justices and other characters. Darby Shaw, the law student whose professor was murdered (portrayed by Julia Roberts) sought out Gray Grantham a Washington news reporter (portrayed by Denzel Washington) to help unearth the injustices committed. The movie concluded with Grantham going to press with the information, and justice was held to those who committed the crimes. Thematically, The Pelican Brief exemplifies journalism principles to correctly differentiate the difference between fact and fiction, and to hold onto those convictions tightly—even when the consequences loom large.

  717. Tonight’s Must See Monday surprised me because I had not realized before tonight that technology has been rapidly changing and will continue to change each and every single day. Eric Newton did a great job explaining the timeline of technology and how it has evolved in journalism and around the world in general. By him showing a slideshow of how the timeline seemed to look like really helped me understand what he was trying to explain. I was fascinated when he mentioned how in the future somehow eventually there will be robots and other types of inventions for the human culture. I would only hear and see that in movies and I would have never thought that eventually our world will experience things like that. A thing I found unfortunate about journalism in the future is how print journalism will eventually be extinct. It seems as if that idea becomes much more true as each year passes by. Though I still have hope print journalism will still be alive for a very long time.

  718. “It’s definitely crazy…so it might happen. Today we’re just scratching the surface of the digital age.”Eric Newton of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, spoke to us tonight about the future of journalism: “A History of the Future of News: What 1767 Tells Us About 2110” and what we can supposedly expect in the years to come. His words were vivid, engaging and, at times, frightening. His presentation reminded me of the idea of a “literary journalist” like we learned in JMC110 earlier today. The world is always changing and journalists must change with it. In his prediction (along with the Newseum) by 2090, we will be in an Omni-Media state. With thought projection and telekinesis. Following the machine takeover. As fictitious as this sounds, his findings found that every 80 years there is a “great awakening,” or a great crisis/new war. While we are in the “multi-media” era, there is much more to follow, including the World War 3.0, an online, media war. I found this Must See Monday quite interesting and also scary. The world changes in an instant and I hope that the human race/journalists will be able to keep up.

  719. Once talking for some time plus getting to know each other, it would be pure to fulfill. It becomes some sort of rather shallow connection if you and him tend to be content to end up being for a long time merely chatting. Each men and women might be seriously seeking another person to help speak with.

  720. What Eric Newton set before me was not only scary and inspiring, but extremely daunting. Scary in the sense that I may very well see my doom at the hands of a cold heartless robot, but also inspiring in the sense that I may see myself as one of the innovators that changes the game forever. It inspired me in more ways than no, though. I think that the only way to survive these days is to either cheat (which I don’t plan on doing) or to create. And I want to create. I feel the need every day to do something new, to bring something to the table that nobody has ever seen before. If I can do that in life, I will be happy. What Newton showed us today though, was daunting in many ways. I am not sure how I feel about the digital age, and I am not sure if I am going to survive it. it seems that everyday there is a new technology that baffles me, and to even grasp the idea of creating one of these vast new technologies makes me feel extremely small to say the least. Unfortunately for me, though, I am going to have to suck it up. Because like Eric Newton said, the age of machines is coming, whether we like it or not. To end on a more hopeful note, though, Eric told us that we as journalists will always be needed, at least in our lifetime. There will be no need for a robot to steal my job, and that makes me feel at ease for the most part. We will always need the innovation of the human mind if we are to progress the field of journalism. And like Isaac Newton said of knowledge: it “is a vast ocean in which i hope to someday explore.” I hope to do the same soon, and as I look out into the sea, my hunger to ride the waves is ever growing. I hope at the very least my hunger for new knowledge will get me somewhere. If not, I can always just work for FOX News.

  721. For the Must See Monday Mr. Merina and Ms. Sullivan spoke to us about dealing with communities in crisis ethically. I found it pretty interesting that both of their first experiences (the Stockton shooting and LA race riots) were with major events. They made so pretty good points about interviewing methods like connecting with the person before conducting the interview. Something as simple as saying “sorry for your loss” can go a long way. Another tip that was given was simply try using language that the locals are familiar with. Mr. Merina used “up the bayou”, “down the bayou” etc. This small attempt to connect with the person being interviewed can open a person up. The final message was to not get too involved with everything in the media because there is a lot of death and negative stories and that can really make a person sad if they focus too much on it. Stay informed, but don’t obsess over stories. I think their advice was really important and useful. I liked the interview tips the most.
