Elections, domain names, and you. Yes, you.

In 2012 when Obama was reelected, two of my Republican friends set out to start a website. They wanted to build something big and shiny and fancy that would percolate and disseminate big ideas to dispirited friends of the GOP. But they never finished it. Their plans were so big and so awesome and soon their busy lives swept them away to other things.

So now here we are on the other side of another election. For some it’s an election that may find you wanting to speak louder than being curled into the fetal position will allow you.

But it doesn’t have to be difficult.

Future of News series highlights journalism in a digital age

Journalism today looks very different than it did 50 years ago. Or even a decade ago. Or even a few years ago. In the midst of a digital age, industries are transforming the way they do business in an attempt to meet the changing needs and expectations of today’s consumers. This is especially true for the field of journalism, which continues to endure despite numerous claims throughout the years that the profession is dying out.

Journalism has survived the technological upheaval of recent years for a simple reason: It adapted. Newspapers moved to an online format. Broadcast journalists adopted Twitter as a new way to discover and report breaking news. And reporters who may have started their careers writing news stories via typewriter now curate news through mobile apps. Journalism as we know it is in the midst of a transformation that will shape the way we find and share news in the years to come.
