Blown up Articles? the Future of News Publishing?

A couple really good articles on the future of news publishing in a digital age to remind us of the power of our mental models.

Key point: we have to shake the mindset from print, when you only had one shot to publish something.

This article from Mathew Ingram sparked some challenging thoughts about how to reframe what it is we do. His message: the "article" as the atomic unit of the news is the wrong unit. 

The always thoughtful Jeff Jarvis is pushing my thinking hard via posts like this one, where he breaks down the "article" into it's component parts. It's part of his effort to rethink and, um, reimagine, what news will look like when we don't have to jam it into its old containers (like articles).
