How Marvel's API Will Change Cultural Criticism

How Marvel's API Will Change Cultural Criticism | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Anyone who gets their news online knows data journalists are trying to change cultural criticism. Browse around today and you can see Vox.com explaining the "7 things Kindle highlights tell us about readers," or Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEightsupposedly proving boy bands are awful, or Slate's explanation of why readers’ opinions of a book drop after it wins a prize. But we're still waiting for a transformative voice, the equivalent of Billy Bean outsmarting Major League Baseball’s system in 2002 or Nate Silver embarrassing career election prognosticators in 2012.


This is fundamental to Marvel,” says Peter Olson, VP of web development at Marvel Entertainment. “We’ve always been involved in conversations with fans. We’re just keeping the conversation going in the digital realm.” Olson and others at Marvel admit the program bears a little “throw against the wall and see what sticks” element. “There aren’t many who are doing quite what we’ve done,” says Olson. “Marvel experiments a lot. In terms of opening up access, it’s new ground.”

Other art forms aren't as well equipped for data-infused criticism. “Art historians already have trouble writing about digital art forms because their usual descriptors don’t work anymore,” says author and media theorist Dr. Charlotte Frost.

Write on the button: the grammar of interactivity

Write on the button: the grammar of interactivity | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Jonathan Richards:  "Deciding what text to put on an interactive button can be difficult, not least because of the unusual grammar of the 'interactive voice'. Here, we propose a test to use when in doubt."

Online database for interactive documentaries : MIT Open Documentary Lab Launches _docubase

Online database for interactive documentaries : MIT Open Documentary Lab Launches _docubase | Big Media (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

As a consumer of new media – to say nothing of its makers – how does one go about keeping abreast of the emerging form’s constant developments? MIT Open Documentary Lab hopes to keep interested parties up to speed with _docubase, a new project that was launched yesterday at IDFA. A curated platform, _docubase will maintain an open dialogue on the “new documentary,” the fledging form that draws from interactive and community-created fact-based storytelling.

“No longer must we look back at those unconstrained moments of creativity from a nostalgia-tinged distance,” reads the _docubase manifesto, referring to the unchecked and experimental early years of film and television. “Instead, we can learn from the past and record today’s nascent steps, collect and consider their many innovative directions, and in the process, expand and enhance meaningful participation in the new documentary community.”
