The recent European Digital Journalism Survey has some fascinating findings for newsrooms shifting into the multiplatform age.
First off, the surprise of the survey: All of the multi-task work has been perceived as an improvement of overall quality by the journalists themselves.
Another surprise: Most of the skills improvement has been self-generated. Oddly little training has been instituted.
Journalists still feel their traditional bases are most important, but have bought in to digital as the future and are treating it seriously in the present.
There's also a 40/40 factor: about 40 per cent of respondents are producing more than 40 per cent of their content online first.
