On November 11, Cipher welcomed two great Colorado journalists to speak about the future of journalism in Colorado and around the country. John Ennslin, a top reporter at the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News (see the “Best Of” Cipher) now working at the Colorado Springs Gazette, gave us a view of the aftermath of such a collapse. Wendy Norris, a freelance reporter and the founder of WesternCitizen.com, argued for the potential of regional journalism. Both journalists emphasized in particular the interactive nature of the Internet, suggesting that new media needed to capitalize on the interest of its readers in participating in their news. Both reporters shared a sense of nostalgia and optimism, and ultimately convinced us that journalism is not only going to succeed, but thrive in the Internet age.
