Web design is in bad shape. In the applications boom, news-related web sites end up as collateral damage. For graphic designers, the graphics tools and the computer languages used to design apps for tablets and smartphones have unleashed a great deal of creativity. The transformation took longer than expected, but great designs begin to appear in iPad applications (in previous Monday Notes, we already discussed Business Week+ and the new Guardian app). The best applications get rid of the print layout; they start from a blank slate in which a basic set of rules (typefaces, general structure of a page, color codes) are adapted to the digital format.

Publishers, don't start skimping on your iPad editions now. Magazine and newspaper apps' quality seems to be the most important factor in their success with consumers, according to the first annual "The State of the App" report from McPheters & Company's iMonitor service, drawing on iMonitor's evaluations of 3,000 apps from publishers around the world.

In a busy corner of the metajournalism world, a crowd of journalists is assembling what amounts to a public, open-source curriculum on how to do hacker journalism. In blogs, tweets, Git repositories, meetups and slide decks, they're sharing code snippets, tutorials, data sets, How To's and more, in ways that are often engaging and accessible to non-geeks.

If I lost you at "Git repositories," let me back up a step.

The great debate in newspaper circles these days involves paywalls and metering.

It wasn't that long ago that the mantra in newspapers was "Internet first" and involved 24-by-7 newsrooms that posted news to the Web first, regardless of print newspaper deadlines.

While at many newspaper companies Internet revenues increased, they didn't rise fast enough to replace declining print advertising and circulation revenues. The spreadsheet dilemma became: "Can print dollars be replaced with Internet dimes?"

So far, the answer has been no.

The 2010 version of the Knight News Challenge featured an entry for a very cool project: PaperNews, middleware that sought to "reinvent how we see news design on the web."

PaperNews wasn't, ultimately, funded. But part of its spirit lives on in Scroll, a new editor that aims to de-templatize news design. The tool, created by soon-to-be-serial entrepreneurs Cody Brown and Kate Ray, wants to take the basic design approach of print -- start with a totally blank page, add elements -- and apply it to the online world.

Physical construction may be down across the Western World, but there's a boom in paywalls.

At least 150 paywalls have been erected over the last year or so, in the U.S., U.K., and across Europe. American companies in on that construction boom include Lee, McClatchy, Morris, MediaGeneral, MediaNews, Gatehouse, and Tribune (all powered by Press+), as well as Scripps, Gannett, and Belo. From Sanoma in Finland to The Telegraph in the U.K., a number of dailies are following the trend. Those that haven't are almost all considering a paywall in some form; many more will launch in the next 12 months.

Last week journalism professor Matt Waite wrote a blog post worrying about the typical defeatist reaction of journalism students when faced with a coding challenge, whether in HTML, JavaScript, or other language: "I can't do this," they tell him. "This is impossible. I'll never get this." When I tweeted a link to the article, I wrote ""Journos: If you fear coding, you fear the future."

That prompted a response from a practicing trade journalist and former colleague, who asked "I can see why knowing things like HTML and CSS can be helpful but do most journos need more than that?"

Social networks have helped make journalists more accessible by breaking down barriers between the public and the media. But there's a disconnect between journalists' accessibility on social networks and their accessibility on news sites.

As a media reporter, I've often been frustrated by how hard I have to look for journalists' contact information on news sites -- and by how few usable results I get. I sometimes find nothing more than a generic email address, or a list of emails for departments instead of people.

Should a local newspaper have its office in the centre of the town, city or borough where it circulates? In an ideal (aka former) world, yes.

Should a local council advertise all its public notices, planning applications and job recruitment opportunities in the local paper (or papers)? In an ideal (aka former) world, yes.

Clearly, by qualifying the "ideal" with "former", my questions are loaded.

Many newspapers and other traditional media entities still think of themselves as delivering their content in a specific package, although most are trying hard to build an online readership as well, or experiment with iPad and Facebook apps (not to mention paywalls). But few are thinking about their businesses in radically different ways -- as content-generating engines with multiple delivery methods, or as platforms for data, around which other things can be built. USA Today appears to be moving in this direction, by opening up its data for others to use and even commercialize, following in the footsteps of The Guardian and its ground-breaking "open platform."
