Innovation will change the future of newspapers
Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur magazine
Editing Like An Entrepreneur
Rule #1 for an entrepreneur goes like this: If someone is doing something because “that’s the way it’s always been done,” then it’s probably time for a change. Newspaper and magazine editors are guilty of this too. We came up in an industry full of habits and rigid ways of thinking, and adopted many of them whether we meant to or not. So how do we shake free, and look at the media business in a fresh way? In this talk, former Massachusetts newspaper reporter and current Entrepreneur magazine editor in chief Jason Feifer discusses his own efforts, as he tries to practice what his own readers preach. It’s made him uncomfortable at times, and he hopes it makes you uncomfortable too. But the ultimate goal is to be inspired—to rethink why we all do what we do, and how we might be able to do it differently and better.
