Converging a newsroom

Here in the j-education business, as in many news organizations, the struggles continue about creating "converged" newsrooms.

Kent State has brought its student media newsrooms together, and it has produced a great multimedia site on the "shotgun wedding." You'll find a lot of good insight on here, from the observation that you can't dictate it top-down (d'oh) to good suggestions for equipment and software.

The only thing missing is how to do it without having a 2,000-plus-square-foot new empty space for the newsroom, a luxury many schools and commercial newsrooms don't have.

(If you don't want to page through the Web site -- you should for the multimedia -- there's also a full PDF version of the report - 11.9MB.)
