Financial Times editor announces digital-first strategy | Media The Financial Times editor, Lionel Barber, has announced plans to move the title to a digital-first strategy in a move he described as a "big cultural shift" for the business daily, and cut 35 jobs. Barber said the FT will make a net headcount reduction of 25 – after hiring 10 journalists for digital roles – in an effort to save £1.6m this year as part of the strategy, outlined to staff in a memo on Monday, seen by MediaGuardian. He added that the FT needed to be "reshaped for the digital age". Barber said: "We need to ensure that we are serving a digital platform first, and a newspaper second. This is a big cultural shift for the FT that is only likely to be achieved with further structural change."

The Irish Times is changing its size and its appearance from tomorrow. It will remain a broadsheet, but it will be narrower than before. And the design is being revamped to take account of the new format. The publishers recruited Palmer Watson to redesign the paper. In a message to readers, the Irish Times's editor, Kevin O'Sullivan, writes: "The smarter look in print will be complemented by more extensive, original journalism… "A smarter Irish Times – in look and content – will continue to produce quality journalism.

Richard Ben Cramer died one year ago this week and he is still sorely missed. His career began at the Baltimore Sun during the Watergate Era, blossomed at the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he won a Pulitzer for his reportage in the Middle East, and broadened in the 1980s when he conquered the long magazine profile with his enduring Esquire piece on Ted Williams.

At the beginning of this month, Clay Shirky offered some thoughts on how we journalists might like to think about our digital future. His essay (it seems trite to describe it as a mere posting), Institutions, confidence, and the news crisis, is short but, as ever, thoughtful. He begins by explaining the nature of institutions. Their value lies in stability. Their problem lies in their lack of genuine adaptability. Here is the news - newspaper organisations defy the digital revolution | Media
If you choose your own news, you'll be less well read | Media | The Observer Last year it was paywalls, the free-versus-subscription argument that gripped newspapers worried about survival. But see how the moving finger flicks on. Welcome to the 2012 version of this debate, otherwise known by the unlovely name of "versioning". The idea of paywalls, you'll recall, is that newspapers set some sort of tariff for reading their sites.
