Indian Online Journalism or IOJ started as a forum on August 24, 2000 at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/indianonlinejournalism. It was egroups before Yahoo! bought the product. IOJ lies nearly dormant there after being a fairly talkative community. With the evolutions of new media users have scattered all over the web. IOJ too has tried to be as dispersed as the exponents of Online Journalism.
IOJ, more than being just a blog, has attempted to be and Adda for Online Journalists from India be they in Facebook: Indian Online Journalism or in LinkedIn: Online Journalists of India, to name a few place where we are.
This website will be the anchor of all those communities as they grow, evolve or morph.
The communities and this blog is run by Subhash Rai — an online journalist (yeah, what else?). He has been part of ETOnline, indya.com, aol.in, Frontline and Economic & Political Weekly.
Subhash as also been a journalism educator, having worked fulltime at the Indian Institute of Journalism and New Media and was a visiting faculty member at the Asian College of Journalism, Chennai.
Join us in this ever-enchanting journey called Online Journalism.
