The changing face of Statusphere

I am a long time and big time fan of the Poyenter Newsleters and was going through them this week and this piece was a wonderful piece that is enriching and delightful. It suits the tastes and fires up the imagination as wel as gives a trend of the industry. I was trying to figure out how many of the Indian Journos are catching up with the trend and are on frontfot of the same!? but sadly I could countupon very few, infact most of them are maintained as communities and fans pages.

Wel am trying to keep up and see if there are really some of these so called Indian Journos on the Statusphere

His Friend : “It’s the wrong question to ask. The real question we should ask is if whether or not we can save good journalism.” He continued, “Think about it. Of the hundreds, thousands, of newspapers around the country, there are really only a few that matter. Good journalism and journalists, on the other hand, are worth saving.”
