What do you call an ‘entrepreneurial journalist?’

Writing a book is easy. Compared to naming a book, that is.

In 2009 I asked you (and my LinkedIn colleagues) to vote for your favorite title among 4 options and many of you answered “none of the above.” Which was fine, because several of you offered great alternatives. One of them ended up as the title: Journalism Next.

I’m finishing my third book and this time the focus is on how to launch your own journalism or news-based startup. I’ve been looking for a catchy term for “entrepreneurial journalist” but haven’t found one. So I’m turning to the collective wisdom of my blog readers  for help. Please let me know which of the following three options you like best or, if you don’t like any of them, give me a suggestion for something better.

NOTE: A technical glitch prevented anyone from actually voting in this poll. I’m leaving it up so you can see what we were considering. Thanks to everyone who voted and voiced their feedback by email, Twitter and LinkedIn.

What should I title my new book?
