NYU's New Journalism Innovation Program

Waiting for the on demand edited version of the Naked Media show from Scribe Media, but in the meantime can say a few things that came of it beyond Jay Rosen gamely and graciously trying to come up with business models for the new journalism:
- New York University is launching a new program, in Fall of '09, that somehow mingles innovation with journalism, perhaps in a business or tech way. It's not an entrepreneurial journalism program. Rosen didn't want to say too much more.
- Talking Points Memo is profitable, and something he holds up as a model of journalism in the new era -- very lean, involving its like-minded even opinionated community of a half-million readers or so in information gathering and parsing. He also doesn't consider it a full developed model, yet.
