マードックが FTC へ

FTC’s “Journalism & Internet Age” Workshop To Feature Murdoch & Huffington


ちょうど良いタイミングでワークショップが開かれるのか、はたまた、ここに合わせてマードックが仕掛けたのか、いぞれにしても、面白そうな展開ですね。 --- A.C.


今年の初めに FTC (Federal Trade Commission) がアナウンスしたのは、12月1日/2日の両日で Washington DC において、“How Will Journalism Survive The Internet Age” というタイトルのワークショップを開催し、インターネットの公正な使用や、アグリゲーションがジャーナリズム与える影響、そして関連した問題を調査するというものだった。 アジェンダが提供されたが、Google の Josh Cohen と Yahoo の Lem Lloyd に加えて、Rupert Murdoch、Arianna Huffington、White House CTO の Aneesh Chopraspeakers といった強力な人選が成されている。 多くのパネル・ディスカッションが行われるだろう。 そして、私は自身は “Emerging Business Models for Journalism” に参加する。

PDF 形式のアジェンダはココだ。また、 PDF が嫌いな人ために、HTML 形式のアジェンダを作成した。 このライブに参加できる人は限られているが、ワークショップの全体が、このホームページで公開されるだろう。 — by Danny Sullivan

「金を払えばBingに有利な提携を結んでGoogleのシェアを奪うことができるかもしれない」という希望をMicrosoftに抱かせるのがマードックの狙いだ。これでマードックは労せずして検索結果に対する影響力を大きく拡大することができる。案の定、Microsoftは検索エンジンのウェブサイト・クロールのための次世代プロトコル、ACAPの開発に資金援助することに合意した。ACAPはNews Corpのようなコンテンツ所有者が何を検索エンジンに提供するか、きめ細かいコントロールができるようにする技術だ。
