It’s always right now, until it’s later

Never let it be said that the good people at News Limited are slow to respond to the digital revolution. In today’s Australian, Dr Mumbo was awed to learn that

News Limited is seeking a new publishing platform that will feed relevant tweets and social media updates directly to journalists as they draft stories, just like a wire service.”

Dr Mumbo is a philanthanthopic fellow so he’ll happily waive his usual hefty consulting fee and offer these suggestions: RSS. Tweetdeck. Storify. The internet…

And he’ll politely pretend that this and this and this never happened.

  6. I think it is perfectly reasonable for News to seek a new platform – after all none of the existing platforms are owned by Rupert Murdoch.

    For a real edge he could look at investing in the electric telegraph – it is a wide open market right now and morse code is on the way back in! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KhZKNZO8mQ)
