Dear Journalists, this is journalism too

If you want a picture of what the job of journalism also includes these days, just take a look at this post where the NYTimes explains their live coverage of the World Cup.  Journalism will not turn exclusively into this but it will also have a lot of programming. Are you willing to accept the change? You know it’s not up to you to decide, but to the users (people formerly known as the audience). I can see the job ads now: “required good writing skills, especially in XML and PHP.” The geek shall inherit the Earth indeed.
