News agencies play a vital role in securing that news reporting is accurate and trustworthy. New technology only emphasises that. We asked Jonas Eriksson, the President of EANA a few questions about the state of the industry, the role of technology and the future of newsrooms.
From a live content marketplace based on Live Blog to new development partners, a digital-native publishing platform for Superdesk and wider network effects for Airtime Pro, 2017 was a year of exciting developments at Sourcefabric.
One of the few certainties in today’s rapidly changing media environment is that news organisations need allies. Small and medium-sized operations in particular, and independent journalism outlets in general, have to find creative ways to survive in an environment of increasing consolidation and competition.
The team that worked on Newscoop has moved on to Superdesk Publisher, our next-generation platform for digital journalism. As of September 2017, we will no longer be developing or supporting Newscoop ourselves, although the code will remain available to be forked on GitHub. As we close this chapter on our own development of Newscoop, we would like to take a moment to recognise the contributions Newscoop made to digital journalism among independent media organisations worldwide.
