200 Moments that Transformed Journalism, 2000-2009
These moments chronicle change in four critical areas (mouse over the icons at the lower left to reveal business, technology, news and social media). Many are drawn from research compiled for Poynter's "New Media Timeline," a resource that tracks developments from 1969 to the present. To view each of the years included in "200 Moments," click the date at the top of each column. To comment and share this interactive, go to the story about this project.
The 20 selections for each year of the decade reflect the assessment of David Shedden, director of Poynter's Eugene Patterson Library.
This project is funded by the Carnegie Corporation as part of a generous grant to the Poynter Institute to support the work of transforming journalism.
