KPLU’s 'rockstar' checklist translates into more pageviews

The process began in earnest in 2009 after we learned what can only be described as a “hard lesson”: Think twice before undertaking a ground-up overhaul of your digital platforms without substantially more resources than you expect to need. Developers who underestimate the complexity of the process will cost money and time — potentially setting you back a year or more.

We are drowning in data about readers and attention, but which metrics really matter? You won't like the answer | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
There are more ways than ever to measure traffic, readership, attention and engagement with our content. But all that means is there are even more things to distract us from the important questions about who we are trying to reach and how.

The Need for Openness in Data Journalism | Brian Keegan

The Need for Openness in Data Journalism | Brian Keegan | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Do films that pass the Bechdel Test make more money for their producers? I’ve replicated Walt Hickey’s recent article [http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-dollar-and-cents-case-against-hollywoods-exclusion-of-women/] in FiveThirtyEight to find out. My results confirm his own in part, but also find notable differences that point the need for clarification at a minimum. While I am far from the first to make this argument, this case is illustrative of a larger need for journalism and other data-driven enterprises to borrow from hard-won scientific practices of sharing data and code as well as supporting the review and revision of findings. This admittedly lengthy post is a critique of not only this particular case but also an attempt to work through what open data journalism could look like.

L’ esercito dei “quasi giornalisti” del web | LSDI

L’ esercito dei “quasi giornalisti” del web | LSDI | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Nell’ odierno ecosistema dell’ informazione, tutti possono trovare pubblico e attenzione, o almeno provarci. Teoricamente, nel mondo dei bit è finito il predominio dei grandi editori o delle testate tradizionali: l’ etichetta di “new media” abbraccia blogger e aziende, enti non-profit e siti sparsi. Come spiega il noto autore e docente Clay Shirky, “la produzione editoriale non è più un’industria, ma un pulsante sul web [http://gigaom.com/2012/04/09/publishing-is-no-longer-a-job-or-an-industry-its-a-button/%5d]“.

Pirate Journalism by Pau Llop

Pirate Journalism by Pau Llop | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

The crisis of both traditional politics and media visualizes possible pathways to a P2P journalism.

The exchange value of the journalistic work has collapsed due to the inability to fit the business model of traditional media (based on limited information and control of the broadcast channel) in the current digital socioeconomics.

Reflections of a Newsosaur: Lessons from the Digital First implosion

Schadenfreude broke out among some publishers today when Digital First Media killed an ambitious interactive publishing initiative and commenced layoffs to bolster the bottom lines of its newspapers in a reported plan to groom them for sale.  

But no one should be happy that Digital First hit the wall. All this episode proves is that digital publishing – which remains the only imaginable way forward for newspapers and other legacy media – is even harder than we think.  

Digital matters, because modern consumers – even those over the age of 55 – prefer to ingest news on a panoply of platforms including computers, smartphones, tablets and smart televisions. Even the American Press Institute, an arm of the Newspaper Association of America, recently concurred that “the majority of Americans across generations now combine a mix of sources and technologies to get their news each week.”

They may be filled with trolls, but comments still have value -- and they could have even more | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
Many media outlets look down on comments, and some have killed them off entirely, arguing that they are filled with bad behavior and therefore worthless. But there is value in listening to one’s readers, and social media doesn’t fill that need completely.

Il bello e il brutto dei nuovi (grandi) siti di informazione Usa | LSDI | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Negli ultimi tempi c’ è stata una notevole effervescenza in campo digitale negli Stati Uniti e sono nati diversi, importanti, siti di informazione (anche se qualcosa non riesce a funzionare, come il Progetto Thunderdome).

Digiday ha chiesto ad alcuni grafici esperti di media un giudizio su cinque di essi e sulla loro impostazione, sia dal punto di vista grafico che per la efficacia nella presentazione dei contenuti.

 

Quello più apprezzato sembra l’ ultimo in ordine di nascita, Vox. Ecco le cinque schede.

Non c'è solo “Snowfall”, ma l’innovazione nel giornalismo passa dal long form | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Snowfall del New York Times ha inventato un genere letterario: un altro modo di fare giornalismo o di raccontare storie. È il multimedia storytelling: testo, video, mappe e animazioni fanno parte di un unico percorso di lettura. Ha ridato forza agli articoli lunghi, perché sul web è difficile trattenere un lettore davanti a un testo online per più trenta secondi.

NYT Now: All the News That Fits on Your Mobile Phone, More or Less

NYT Now: All the News That Fits on Your Mobile Phone, More or Less | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

As someone old enough to remember life before the web, I still associate The New York Times with a big honking broadsheet, something you hunker down with for a few hours on a Sunday. Compared to easy reads like Newsday or The New York Post, The Times was daunting. During the few times I subscribed to daily delivery, I would feel a creeping sense of guilt as the old copies amassed in my recycling bin, mostly unread.
