  22. 22. “ Society doesn’t need newspapers. What we need is journalism.” <ul><li>For the next few decades, journalism will be made up of overlapping special cases. Many of these models will rely on amateurs as researchers and writers. Many of these models will rely on sponsorship or grants or endowments instead of revenues. Many of these models will rely on excitable 14-year-olds distributing the results. Many of these models will fail. No one experiment is going to replace what we are now losing with the demise of news on paper, but over time, the collection of new experiments that do work might give us the journalism we need. </li></ul><ul><li>– Clay Shirky, “Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable,” 2009. </li></ul>Nancy Proctor, ProctorN@si.edu
  23. 23. And we need curation – but who is a curator? <ul><li>While scholars and museum visitors contribute to the enrichment of curatorial practice through a social media dialogue, I do not share the view that using social media makes everyone a curator. Curators are the most trusted art experts, whose aggregated knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and aesthetic observations define the meaning and value of art. </li></ul><ul><li>– Neal Stimler, Metropolitan Museum of Art </li></ul>Nancy Proctor, ProctorN@si.edu
