Adrian Holovaty said what every young journalist needs to hear, in a commencement speech at the Missouri School of Journalism earlier this month.

… the foundation is important because you need to understand the rules before you can break them. And now, more than ever, this industry needs to break some rules….

Rarely is an entire industry in a position such that it needs to completely reinvent itself.

That’s what keeps me going, personally: The challenge of coming up with the best ways of presenting news and information in this new world where the products the industry has been producing for the past several decades are no longer in as much demand. The challenge of writing the rules, coming up with best practices. That challenge is monumental — but, man, it’s fun.

Found by way of Steve Yelvington.
