Digital tools allow anyone to find new ways of meeting the information needs of communities united by geography, identity, and common interests. Entrepreneurial journalists have found ways to get paid using these tools. Paid subscribers support newsletters about everything from progressive politics to perfume; podcasters and TikTokers seek crowdfunding; newsrooms with nonprofit status focus on single issues such as gun violence, big tech, and higher education. In this course, students will prototype a journalistic product of their own devising using a design process and lean startup principles. Students will also explore a wide array of examples of 21st-century journalism: global and local, successes and failures, inspiring models and cautionary tales.
