Mini Series : Dejourno 4 by EurekaJohn | Web3 Incentivizing Journalism as a Public Good
Mini Series : Dejourno 3 by EurekaJohn. In this episode, we focus on funding and journalism as a public good. We start by defining the definition of a public good. Then we explore ad-driven revenue and how it affects the algorithms in journalism. What are some tools we can use to help incentivize journalists to work outside of the ad model? We want to build tools for journalists that are as pure and untainted by financial and business interests as possible, but we can envision ways that some of those tools might be spun out and adapted for non-journalism commercial ventures.
We explore how communities can use web3 to build their own decentralized, community-owned, not ad-driven, news outlets. In the long run, we're interested in experimenting with whole new business models for journalism, and for rebuilding communities in news deserts. This is a little more abstract, but we can envision a role for investors to build some of the base layer tools that will enable this process without interfering in the editorial process.
