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.

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

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.

Reflections of a Newsosaur: State of the news: Shakier than you think | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
Excuse me for not cheering the renaissance of journalism in the digital era, which I would be pleased to toast if there were one. But the reality is that the businesses that historically have funded local journalism are cutting coverage at the same time that most of the hundreds of new digital entrants are struggling to achieve financial sustainability.

Aron Pilhofer on data journalism, culture and going digital | Tow Center for Digital Journalism

Aron Pilhofer on data journalism, culture and going digital | Tow Center for Digital Journalism | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

When it comes to computer-assisted reporting and the ways media companies are using technology, there are few people in the U.S.A. as knowledgeable as Aron Pilhofer. He runs a newsroom team at The New York Times that combines journalism, social media, technology and analytics, co-founded the open source DocumentCloud.org project, is a two-time grantee of the Knight News Challenge, and co-founded Hacks & Hackers, a network of people focused on applying development and digital innovation to the method and practice of journalism. Happily, part of my research into data journalism’s past, present and future has been interviewing people like Pilhofer, given the insight that those talks offers for debugging debates about “what it all means.” He was kind enough to talk to me earlier this month. Our interview follows, lightly edited for clarity, content and [bracketed] for context.

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 | 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 | 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.”

As traditional journalism models collapse, billionaires grab the medium and the message

As traditional journalism models collapse, billionaires grab the medium and the message | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Journalism, as you learn in your first J-school class, is all about the inverted pyramid.

 

It is the shape that haunts you as a writer and guides you as an editor. And now, as evidenced by Pew’s new report on the state of the news, it is a shape that increasingly defines the media industry’s business model. It also explains why we’re suddenly seeing a raft of new Citizen Kanes’ investing in media and journalism.

 

Most of the coverage of the report focused on the rise of online and/or digital-native news operations. In all, Pew reports, such outlets have to date created 5,000 jobs.
