FishbowlNY Looks At The Biggest Industry Trends For 2010

2010.jpgWe are not sad to say good-bye to 2009. It’s an understatement to say that the past year has been grim for the media industry. 2010 — a new decade even — offers a clean slate, a fresh start. We’ve seen that the business model that so many publications have relied on for decades is no longer viable, and everyone is looking for whatever next big thing will come and save us.

In the past few months, we have been hearing the same things mentioned over and over, so we know they are going to play a role in the media’s attempt to transform itself and rise from the ashes in the coming year. As industry leaders struggle to get our business back in the black, we know we’re going to be hearing more and more about these important things. Throughout this last week of the year, we’ll be focusing on four key topics we know we’ll be hearing more of in the coming year: e-readers, tablets and digital applications of pubs; pay walls; citizen journalism and crowdsourcing; and non-profit journalism and philanthropy.

Today, we’re focusing on all the digital goodies that lay ahead for us in 2010. We’ll be recapping some important events from this year and we’ve talked to some big names in the industry about what they are working on and what’s in store for the New Year and beyond.
