When Everyone is an Eye-Witness, What is a Journalist?

When Everyone is an Eye-Witness, What is a Journalist? | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it

I experienced the Boston tragedy solely through the prism of social media. I was particularly struck by a sequence of eye-witness videos curated by Storyful for YouTube’s Spotlight page. I was overpowered by their unspeakable intimacy.  They had a visceral quality missing from those edited and narrated by mainstream TV journalists.

A GoPro camera on the head of a runner records the final stretch down Boylston Street and the thunderclap of the first bomb. The fearful exclamation of the woman outside Walgreens (“Something just blew up”) is cut off by the roar of the second bomb. A video journalist lets his camera roll across the wreckage of the starting line, his distress audible and the blood visible.

Das Leistungsschutzrecht ist keine 5 Tage alt, da wird es von der digitalen Wirklichkeit bereits ad Absurdum geführt. Mit Flipboard 2.0 lassen sich in sekundenschnelle eigene Zeitschriften bauen und veröffentlichen, gespeist aus Zeitungen, Zeitschriften, Blogs und sonstigen Netzfundstücken.

Was ist neu?

Wie schon bei der ersten Version lassen sich mit Flipboard kinderleicht Texte, Videos, sogar Musik zu einem persönlichen Magazin zusammenstellen. Die Suchfunktion des Vorgängers wurde um eine “+”-Funktion erweitert, mit der sich Inhalte zu neuen Zeitschriften-Titeln remixen lassen.

The Data Journalism Handbook

The Data Journalism Handbook | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it

It was born at a 48 hour workshop at MozFest 2011 in London. It subsequently spilled over into an international, collaborative effort involving dozens of data journalism's leading advocates and best practitioners - including from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the BBC, the Chicago Tribune, Deutsche Welle, the Guardian, the Financial Times, Helsingin Sanomat, La Nacion, the New York Times, ProPublica, the Washington Post, the Texas Tribune, Verdens Gang, Wales Online, Zeit Online and many others.

Welcome to the School of Data Handbook

The School of Data Handbook is a companion text to the School of Data. Its function is something like a traditional textbook – it will provide the detail and background theory to support the School of Data courses and challenges.

The Data Wrangling Handbook should be accessible to all learners. It comes with a Glossary explaining the important terms and concepts. If you stumble across an unexplained term or a concept that requires more explanation, please do get in touch.

News adventures

News adventures | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it
IN A recent issue of the beloved comic book, Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, quits his job as a journalist at the Daily Planet because the paper has gutted its news coverage. Is the outlook for newspapers really so dire that even superheroes have given up on them? Ever since 2006, when The Economist asked on its cover who had “killed the newspaper”, the industry’s pains have only intensified. Advertising has plunged. Readers have kept moving online. Revenues of newspapers continued to fall, dropping to $34 billion last year in America—only about half of what they were in 2000

New York Times And Guardian Will Publish More Snowden Revelations

New York Times And Guardian Will Publish More Snowden Revelations | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it

The New York Times is in the Snowden game.The paper — which NSA leaker Edward Snowden deliberately avoided over his fear that it would cooperate with the United States government — is now working with the Guardian on a series of stories based on documents that detail National Security Agency cooperation with its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ.

 

"In a climate of intense pressure from the UK government, The Guardian decided to bring in a US partner to work on the GCHQ documents provided by Edward Snowden," Guardian spokeswoman Jennifer Lindenauer said in an email. "We are continuing to work in partnership with the NYT and others to report these stories."...

Amazon bought Goodreads, but it won't break it

Amazon bought Goodreads, but it won't break it | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it
It's almost as if Amazon announced two acquisitions today. When the retail giant bought social reading site Goodreads, people were excited at the prospect of having the site more integrated with th...

...

Which way will it go – will Amazon make Goodreads better, or will it be its ruin? There’s evidence on both sides. Amazon already owns Shelfari as well as Abebooks, which bought a 40-percent stake in LibraryThing in 2006, so it owns all or part of three of the top social-reading sites.

And Amazon has a history of trying to strongarm these communities. In 2009, to maintain a book-data partnership, LibraryThing revamped its site to link solely to Amazon.com. Last year, Goodreads faced a similar choice and said no, switching data providers instead. Even today, with a link to the Amazon announcement at the top of its home page, Goodreads still uses Barnes & Noble as its preferred retailer.

The concerns of Amazon-wary readers, authors, and independent booksellers over this deal are valid. And I hope they are made loud and clear so that Amazon feels pressure not to change a social site that is working well for its members. But there is a strong case to be made that, while Amazon is likely to integrate Goodreads reviews and recommendations into the Kindle itself, it’s prepared to take a hands-off approach to the rest of the site.

Ich habe bereits mehrfach darüber geschrieben, dass das Presseleistungschutzrecht wohl auch mit Hinblick auf Apps und den Tabletmarkt von Axel Springer und Co. erdacht wurde. Christoph Keese, Cheflobbyist bei Axel Springer und damit automatisch in Personalunion Gesetzgeber in Deutschland, legte die Karten bewusst oder unbewusst bereits 2011 in seinem Blog auf den Tisch. Dort schrieb er über MyEdition, eine iPad-App von  Axel Springer:

 Inhalte aus anderen Quellen werden nicht ungefragt integriert. Sie werden nur mit vorheriger Genehmigung eingebaut. Genau das ist ein wichtiger Unterschied zu Flipboard oder Zite: MyEdition ist legal. Das haben wir bei der Vorstellung der Closed Beta mehrfach deutlich gesagt; ich habe es getwittert und es steht auch in diesem Blog.

Die Implikation ist offensichtlich: Angebote wie Flipboard ohne Geldfluss Richtung Axel Springer sollen in den Augen von Axel Springer illegal sein. In den Köpfen der Springerschergen waren sie das schon 2011.

Meine Prognose: Noch dieses Jahr wird bekannt werden, dass deutsche Presseverlage auf Basis des neuen Presseleistungsschutzrechts Verhandlungen mit Flipboard aufnehmen (wollen).

Vielleicht noch vor Ende des Jahres wird im schlimmsten Fall Flipboard auf unbestimmte Zeit aus den deutschen Appstores verschwinden. Im besten Fall kehrt es verkrüppelt in einer deutschen Sonderedition zurück.

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World | Curating Journalism | Scoop.it

When I wrote that Radar was investigating data journalism and asked for your favorite examples of good work, we heard back from around the world.

I received emails from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Canada and Italy that featured data visualization, explored the role of data in government accountability, and shared how open data can revolutionize environmental reporting...


It was instructive to learn more about the work of two large media organizations, the Los Angeles Times and Canada’s Global News, which have been building their capacity to practice data journalism. The other international perspectives in my inbox and tweet stream, however, were a reminder that big-city newsrooms that can afford teams of programmers and designers aren’t the only players here.acts of data journalism by small teams or individuals aren’t just plausible, they’re happening — from Italy to Brazil to Africa.


That doesn’t mean that the news application teams at NPR, The Guardian, ProPublica or the New York Times aren’t setting the pace for data journalism when it comes to cutting edge work — far from it — but the tools and techniques to make something worthwhile are being democratized.

That’s possible in no small part because of the trend toward open source tools and social coding I’m seeing online, from Open Street Map to more open elections...

An interesting overall look at the state of data journalism on varying scales, as explored through the examination of case studies, resources and applications.

Of particular interest is the role of open data in generating content, and how that may affect the future of data visualization.

Still, the numerous online links provided within the article offer a substantial number of references on a broad range of topics that pertain to data journalism and visualization.
