An introduction and some freeqin' big questions

By Peter Meng on July 21, 2011 9 Comments Blogs
2011-2012 Reynolds Fellow

A first post demands an introduction. Here it is: My name is Peter Meng and I am not a journalist - in fact I have never worked for any kind of journalism based organization. I am, however, a two-faced geek - tech and marketing. I love both and I'm hoping to blend these two loves to test an idea I've been playing with for a while. My Fellowship with the Reynolds Journalism Institute provides the perfect platform for researching, building, testing, and validating this idea.

My project is based on a problem that's been annoying me for a long time. As an active buyer and seller of services and used stuff on the net, I'm not able to easily promote the things I have for sale or find the things I'm looking for. Instead I have to: wade through Craigslist and sea of smaller classified sites, set-up RSS feeds (a royal pain), use multiple search engines, post "for sale" tweets, scour "TweetDeck," post eBay ads, and sometimes pay ridiculous advertising or membership fees.

"While our colleagues on the business side deserve credit for pushing newsrooms to become more nimble in recent years, they have also consistently failed to imagine and then incubate a Craigslist, a Groupon, a Monster. com, let alone a Google or a Facebook. Nor are they any closer today than they were last year in fixing the broken business model of quality journalism. ... Free is indeed very expensive. But, what the prolonged and knee-jerk debate about free vs. paid inside our news organizations shows is that we still have what led us here in the first place: An imagination deficit. ... It is time we figured out how to make it [journalism] easier, more engaging and useful. -- Raju Narisetti, Managing Editor, read more in The Washington Post
