This is what people were clicking on off my reading list from March 2008.
- Teaching Online Journalism Â» An audience is not a community
- Reflections of a Newsosaur: Think big, act small: Lots of great examples of things news sites are doing that work here.
- CJR: Wiring Journalism 2.0: “How are the media adapting to the new digital technologies that power blogs, interactive graphics, and social networks? Quickly is one answer, but the advent of digital (what used to be called â€œnewâ€) journalism is more complicated than that. Last weekend, the Georgia Institute of Technology held a two-day symposium titled, â€œJournalism 3G: The Future of Technology in the Field.â€ CJRâ€™s Curtis Brainard talked to co-organizer Brad Stenger, who is also research director of Wiredâ€™s annual tech fair, NextFest, about the merger of computers and the press.”
- Itâ€™s not the economy, stupid Â» Invisible Inkling: “Iâ€™m sorry, but every time a newspaper executive discussing layoffs and buyouts blames things like â€œa drastic economic slump and the meltdown of the Bay Area housing marketâ€ I laugh.”
- About the article commenting system and strategy at philly.com: “Managing comments and other forms of online community isn’t rocket science, but it always seems to flummox newspapers. Thousands of online sites have been running thriving, friendly, well-behaved communities for years, but newspapers seem allergic to the idea of letting readers have their say onlineâ€”and almost invariably seem do it badly when they do allow reader interaction.”
- Say NO to video: Conversations with the Video God : MultimediaShooter: The comments on this post are pretty good. So is this quote from the post: “The viewer doesnâ€™t know or care if the image moves like video or is a well paced audio slide show, they want a good story. Period.”
