Journalists as entrepreneurs

It's never been easier for journalists set up our own blogs, produce our own podcasts or make our own videos. But how do you go beyond just building an online portfolio? How do you build something that has a unique view of the world and does something that others don't? We'll use examples of prominent new journalistic startups to examine how to find your niche, to make your name and build, and say, something others haven't already.
