Joe Pompeo examines the role of long-form journalism:
The mobile consumption of long-form journalism has become something of a trend lately. And where trends in journalism go, panel discussions are sure to follow.
There was one last month, which convened David Remnick, Ira Glass and other bold-faced geek names to discuss the intersection of technology and narrative storytelling. Another took place last night at New York’s Housing Works bookstore. Several hundred crowded the stacks to hear four writers and editors from Rolling Stone–Jeff Goodell, Rob Sheffield, Brian Hiatt and Will Dana–discuss the role of longer-form writing in an increasingly miniaturized, just-in-time media scene.
