The belief that environmental protection can support economic growth instead of hindering it – or challenging the idea altogether – is another key component of ecological modernisation ( Hajer, 1995 ; Weale, 1992 ). Here, as in the whole process of regulating environmental risks, technological innovations play a key role.

Can hyperlocals fill the gap?

journalism”, “participatory journalism”, “citizen journalism”, “hyperlocal journalism” and “ultra-local journalism”, to name but a few, with the last four all being different types of community journalism – reporting about a local community. The term “hyperlocal” was coined in 1991 by cable news pioneer John Hillis, to describe his innovation in the context of locally inserted news in a 24-hour news channel ( Pavlik, 2013 ). New types of local media are often referred to as “hyperlocal”. Hyperlocal websites principally serve local residents and tend to be produced by

generations are diverse, and these need to be researched with thoroughness. All in all, it is necessary to explore the nature of different components, where the cultural setting, time and space are crucial for understanding historical and cultural conditions and the context for innovation. Memory studies provide one option for looking at historical reception, or what people remember of history, e.g. the ways it is made useful in their lives or, in this study, in meaning-making processes. Culture is, broadly speaking, regarded as a shared system of meanings that is learned

Disruptive technology in book and local newspaper industries

Introduction In the Norwegian book and newspaper industries, which are the focus of this article, we explore how the distribution of local online news and online books has been disrupted and how Generation Z is engaged in unpaid and paid consumption. Based on Christensen’s (1997) criteria for disruptive innovation and Cunningham and colleagues (2010) notion of disruptive distribution, our research questions for this study are the following: 1) What characterizes Generation Z in paying for books’ and local newspapers’ online content? 2) How is disruptiveness
