"Sometime in the past few years, the blog died. In 2014, people will finally notice. Sure, blogs still exist, many of them are excellent, and they will go on existing and being excellent for many years to come. But the function of the blog, the nebulous informational task we all agreed the blog was fulfilling for the past decade, is increasingly being handled by a growing number of disparate media forms that are blog-like but also decidedly not blogs.

Instead of blogging, people are posting to Tumblr, tweeting, pinning things to their board, posting to Reddit, Snapchatting, updating Facebook statuses, Instagramming, and publishing on Medium. In 1997, wired teens created online diaries, and in 2004 the blog was king. Today, teens are about as likely to start a blog (over Instagramming or Snapchatting) as they are to buy a music CD. Blogs are for 40-somethings with kids."

Jason’s article is part of a series of Nieman predictions for journalism in 2014.

Introducing uProxy

a safer path to the Internet

The Internet enables amazing things that most now take for granted. But for one out of every three people who live in societies where free expression is severely restricted, the online experience is quite different.

When corrupt or repressive groups control the Internet’s infrastructure, they often subject their citizens’ internet traffic to censorship, surveillance, and misdirection.

The University of Washington and Brave New Software partnered to develop uProxy, a project seeded by Google Ideas, which enables friends to provide each other with a trusted pathway to the web.

To learn more or help develop the project further visit uproxy.org
