Memory Bank Monday (11.23-11.29)

*A weekly roundup of things I think are interesting but am too lazy to write a full post about. This week’s MBM is posted late because, well, it was Thanksgiving break and I had other things to do. Like eat.*

1. What would newspapers look like if they were invented today? Bonnier’s News+ concept for a daily newspaper explores this question with a demonstration:

I think the part I like the most is the social networking integration–reader will be able to interact with writers directly, breaking down the barrier between author and reader that print newspapers have.

2. How Investigative Journalism Is Prospering in the Age of Social Media An informative read for those who are saddened by the demise of investigative journalism in print and on tv. There’s a hope!

3. The NYT reports that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, has already shut down some piracy sites.

4. Confused about net neutrality? Huffington Post’s Gigi Sohn summarizes what the FCC is beginning to do regarding internet regulation.

5. Netflix is booming. The company is willing to pay $75,000-$100,000 for a single episode in order to get new content.
