Familiar and unfamiliar faces:
Newspapers, magazines, and
publications born on the Web.

This is a collection of links and comments about the arrival of news (and other) publishing on the World Wide Web. It was originally a 1995 list for discussion by students in what is now UNC's JOMC-50, then stayed around for other visitors. It has grown into a five-part collection of more comments and links than you'll have time to read unless you give up having a life.

  1. Browse around your favorite kinds of media, find a few sites that interest you, and get a general idea of what they offer.
  2. Read a couple of the articles cited on the commentary page and make yourself an outline of the authors' suggestions for "news" publications online.
  3. Look at a couple of publications from each category to see how well they fit the writers' descriptions, for better or for worse.

If you want to print this for reading offline, you might prefer the one-"page" version. Or, if you just want to bookmark all of the links without my annotations, see the no-comments version.
