Innovation in journalism and the evolving paradigm : Sarah Granger : City Brights I’ve spent a lot of time thinking and speaking about innovation – in government, politics, policy and media. While innovation may be commonplace in the San Francisco Bay Area, where entrepreneurship is the top keyword on LinkedIn profiles and creativity is generally rewarded, innovators often get pushed out of more traditional organizations. I’ve alluded to this in the past in terms of how difficult it’s been for some older newspapers and magazines to shift to new media models, but innovation goes far beyond just moving with the times. Today through Wednesday, Stanford University is hosting their eighth annual Innovation Journalism conference – IJ-8 – dissecting some of the biggest issues involving media today, from channels to influence, earned media to mobile development.

change As a supporter of the Women's Media Center, I was saddened to hear MSNBC host Ed Schultz's misogynist comment about extreme right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham.

How Digital Detectives Deciphered Stuxnet, the Most Menacing Malware in History It was January 2010, and investigators with the International Atomic Energy Agency had just completed an inspection at the uranium enrichment plant outside Natanz in central Iran, when they realized that something was off within the cascade rooms where thousands of centrifuges were enriching uranium. Natanz technicians in white lab coats, gloves and blue booties were scurrying in and out of the “clean” cascade rooms, hauling out unwieldy centrifuges one by one, each sheathed in shiny silver cylindrical casings. Any time workers at the plant decommissioned damaged or otherwise unusable centrifuges, they were required to line them up for IAEA inspection to verify that no radioactive material was being smuggled out in the devices before they were removed.
