Farewell OJR

I’m a little behind on this unfortunate development: the Online Journalism Review is no more. Editor Robert Niles says the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School has decided to pull the plug. While he doesn’t offer much in the way of an explanation, Niles says USC will focus its online efforts for professionals on the Knight Digital Media Center instead. Niles himself has launched his own blog, Sensible Talk, which he calls “a community devoted to media, business, arts and technology criticism.”

I, for one, will miss OJR. It offered insights and examples of good work that are hard to find elsewhere. Sorry to see it go.
