Le strategie dei blog nelle grandi testate | LSDI | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

In che modo le gradi testate dovrebbero gestire i propri blog? Mentre gli editori lottano per aumentare la propria copertura informativa, come pianificano la loro strategia relativa all’ uso dei blog? Esiste per un media online un numero ottimale di blog da tenere in piedi? Dovrebbero adottare una linea alla Mao Tse-tung – ”lascia che fioriscano migliaia di blog”? O al contrario, dovrebbero essere rigorosamente selettivi? Una serie di interessanti riflessioni di Frédéric Filloux
- Il giornalista francese, colleaboratore del Guardian, le affida al suo MondayNote, spiegando che ‘’un numero troppo alto di blog ospitati da grosse testate sembrano inconcludenti o aggiornati raramente’’, mentre ‘’ alcuni organi di stampa preferiscono focalizzarsi su un piccolo numero di blog: FT.com (solo 14 blog) o l’ Economist (23), ad esempio, hanno optato per un approccio selettivo, che molto spesso garantisce dei risultati complessivi migliori’’ continua a leggere...http://www.lsdi.it/2012/le-strategie-dei-blog-nelle-grandi-testate/

Guardian says open journalism is the only way forward

Guardian says open journalism is the only way forward | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

If there’s one newspaper that has stood apart from the crowd in terms of its eagerness to embrace a digital-media world, it is The Guardian in Britain. The paper was one of the first to make user-generated content — and crowdsourcing — a key part of its business, and also one of the first to try and turn itself into a truly open platform for data sharing. Now, in what appears to be a response to the wave of paywall-ism that is sweeping the newspaper industry, editor Alan Rusbridger has launched a new campaign aimed at reinforcing the Guardian’s commitment to “open journalism,” an approach that he says is the only real option for media in the digital era.

MediaShift . Technology Journalism: The Jobs Are There; the Journalists Are Not | PBS

MediaShift . Technology Journalism: The Jobs Are There; the Journalists Are Not | PBS | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

BARCELONA -- If journalism is a profession in trouble, you would never know it from the newsroom at the Mobile World Congress.

It's hard to find one of the 500 seats in the newsroom empty as journalists from around the world file stories for specialty newspapers, websites and blogs. Unfortunately, few journalism schools can boast about placing their alums here.

Technology journalism is booming.

"There are lots of jobs out there," said Kerry Davis, a recent M.A. grad from the University of Maryland. "But I don't know anyone out there teaching people how to do it."

Davis is an experienced broadcast journalist hired by IDG News Service when it wanted to expand into multimedia coverage. She is enjoying her success, even though "some of what they say goes right over my head."

 

A NEW VERNACULAR
Knowing the lingo of technology is an important visa to being accepted in the tech journalism world.

"This is different," said Marco Lombardi, veteran technology reporter for Milan's il Giornale. "We are learning it day to day."

A couple of years ago, one of my tech friends paid me an unusual compliment. He said, "You're not a geek, but you speak geek." I frankly fake it much of the time, but the point was that one does not need to be a programer to move comfortably through the tech world. As the newsroom here at MWC attests, the world is in desperate need of journalists who can translate what technologists say into a language we lesser beings can understand.

 

THE NEED FOR INSTITUTIONAL LEARNING

Right now, most of the tech journalists say they learned their specialty on the job. But that job could be much easier to obtain with a few extra college-level courses.

"They really need to learn IT history," said Simon Lee of Cisco. Lee is global client services executive for Cisco and a key source for journalists. He said coursework that would give journalism students the background to the technology world and an overview of how systems work would be invaluable.

YDR Insider | What does success look like?

YDR Insider | What does success look like? | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Last week I asked my editors to share the following with everyone on their staff:

Ask yourself

 

1) How many page views did your work generate this week? What can you point to that you know is yours?

2) What did you do to get your work in front of everyone who would have been served by it?

How did you use social media to expose your work?
What guerilla tactics did you employ?
Who did you partner with to expand the audience?

3) What can you point to that would show proof that you served a larger audience this week than last? What did you do this week that was new?

4) How did your work influence your audience? What evidence can you point to that shows impact?

5) What was the least valuable thing you did this week, and how can you avoid doing it again?

 

This is unusual stuff to be talking about in a newsroom. Our traditional goals have involved such things as making deadline, getting front-page play and winning awards. That’s what success used to look like.

But in the new world of media — one in which user-generated content is on equal footing with original reporting, and in which the front page of the paper is of fleeting concern — we need a new vision of success.

Introduction to Digital First metrics: How do you measure success?

You can’t know how successful you are — or even if you’re succeeding — unless you find a way to measure performance.

I’ll be leading a workshop today on metrics for Digital First journalists in Connecticut. It’s scheduled for the Middletown Press, but if the weather turns nasty, I might stay in New Haven. Either way, you can follow the workshop on a livestream and live chat. The workshop starts at 4 p.m. (but if I’m traveling, weather could delay that slightly).

I’ll start with a process journalists should use to measure their digital efforts, then I’ll discuss some possible ways and tools to carry out that process:

What and how should you measure?

 

Here’s the metric process I recommend for every Digital First journalist:

 

1.Identify an important goal for your position and discuss the goal with your editor.
2.Consider what measurements would show how well you were achieving your goal.
3.Explore what tools are available to provide that measurement.
4.Consider how much money or time it would take to provide that measurement and adjust accordingly.

5.Consider what the measurement shows about your performance (and what it doesn’t show).

6.Repeat steps 2-3 to provide metrics in areas that the first tool didn’t measure.
7.Repeat steps 1-6 for other important goals.
8.Review your measurements periodically (monthly would be good) to assess your performance.
9.Determine whether and how you should change what you’re doing.
10.Determine whether and how you should change what you’re measuring.
11.Share and discuss that review with your supervisor.
12.Keep in mind that metrics aren’t perfect.

Launching a new idea in a post-paper world - The Domino Project

Seth Godin:

Today my new manifesto Stop Stealing Dreams goes ‘on-sale’. On-sale is in air quotes because it’s free, but we don’t have a word for the on-free date.

Ideas that spread are worth a lot–to the community and to the creator of those ideas as well. When they’re bound up in a book, an object that costs money to produce and print, there’s just no practical way for an author to spread the idea in that medium without slowing it down by charging for it. That’s why authors always embraced electronic media–you could go on TV to talk about your book, spread the idea and then get paid later when people actually bought the book.

But what if there’s no book to buy?

We still don’t have a good way to demarcate when a book ends and when something else (a manifesto?) begins. How long something has to be, or how involved, before it crosses from tweet to blog to manifesto to book…

For this project, my goal is to spread the idea, not monetize it.

I’ve posted the manifesto as both a printable PDF [http://www.thedominoproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/StopStealingDreamsSCREEN.pdf] as well as a PDF you can read on screen and as an ebook (in both sideloading Kindle and ePub/Nook format).

Digital First, "Digital Divide" e i quotidiani italiani

Digital First, "Digital Divide" e i quotidiani italiani | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

dal blog jumpinshark:

 

El País, il quotidiano non sportivo più diffuso in Spagna, ha di recente avviato una strategia "digital first" fortemente originale (anche per il rapporto che intrattiene con il suo passato, ovvero il suo archivio), ben presentata da Mario Tedeschini Lalli in due articoli (Giornalismo digital first? e El Pais guarda al futuro e re-inventa il passato). "Digital first" è diventata anche da noi espressione corrente almeno dal giugno dell'anno scorso quando il Guardian e l'Observer hanno intrapreso tale nuovo percorso per far fronte alle "sfide del futuro", o meglio per tentare di rimettere in sesto i conti (con britannica concretezza il pezzo appena linkato inizia con "The Guardian and Observer lost £33m in cash terms last year").

 

Il direttore Alain Rusbridger dichiarava: "Ogni giornale è in viaggio verso un qualche tipo di futuro digitale. Ciò non significa uscire dalla stampa, ma richiede una maggiore focalizzazione di attenzione, immaginazione e risorse sulle diverse forme che il futuro digitale probabilmente prenderà."
In relazione a questa scelta "digitale" e -importante specificazione- pure "aperta" il Guardian ha introdotto una grande serie di innovazioni (o ha innovato nell'uso di strumenti già noti):
*adozione magistrale di Twitter con account ufficiali dedicati per le varie sezioni del giornale e account personali dei giornalisti (da News a Tech, da Rusbridger a Marina Hyde)
*nuova applicazione Facebook che è subito diventata un modello da imitare
*lancio di n0tice, la "open community news platform" (vd. NiemanLab)
*lancio di Open Platform, un insieme di servizi (accessibili attraverso un API) per sviluppare prodotti digitali e applicazioni con il Guardian (buona presentazione di Ingram, che include anche un video dello sviluppatore del Guardian Chris Thorpe)
sperimentazione di un'apertura al pubblico della newslist, l'elenco delle storie che il giornale intende coprire ("Che cosa succederebbe se i lettori fossero in grado di aiutare le redazioni nel comprendere quali sono le storie su cui vale la pena di investire risorse giornalistiche?", qui l'elenco live).
*grande impegno su contenuti che proprio attraverso il digitale trovano la loro migliore forma di espressione, in primo luogo il Guardian DataBlog, uno dei più illustri esempi di data journalism. Attraverso il web si possono offrire visualizzazioni dinamiche, dati grezzi e altri materiali, molto difficilmente riproducibili su carta.

4 reasons why linking is good journalism; 2 reasons why linking is good business

4 reasons why linking is good journalism; 2 reasons why linking is good business | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

from Steve Buttry blog:

 

"*Honesty is good journalism.

If you weren’t first with a story, or a piece of a story, someone will have read the first one. Even if you independently verified every fact in your own piece, linking shows the readers who saw both pieces that you are honest, acknowledging the work that came before and not pretending to be first.

 

*Transparency is good journalism.

Some readers want to see your work, and reading that other piece was part of your work, whether it guided your reporting or whether you were racing along the same path and the other reporter beat you to publication. As Brian Boyer and Matt Thompson like to say, “Show your work.”

 

*Attribution is good journalism.

Often a journalist is actually relying on the work of another journalist. If you are quoting or paraphrasing another journalist’s work, attribute by name and link. Ethical journalism is more than just avoiding plagiarism. In digital journalism, attribution is incomplete without a link.

 

*Context is good journalism.

Rare is the story or blog post that tells everything you could possibly want to know about the subject at hand. Work by other journalists on the topic you are covering provides valuable context for your readers. So link to that work".

"I consider myself one small part of a community on Twitter that focuses on information visualization, computational design, and interaction design. Collectively we tweet about our personal work, highlight other work of quality or that has interesting characteristics, critique approaches or individual designs, discuss tools and techniques, and suggest interesting datasets or projects. I'm grateful to be connected with such an interesting group of people and I've learned a great deal from them.

Moritz Stefaner is an important part of this group and in July 2011 he created an interesting map of this community he calls The VIZoSPHERE. Basically, he started from a set of 18 selected twitter accounts, found their friends and followers and included any twitter account that met a minimum criterion of connectedness. A small version of part of this map is below. Node sizes reflect the number of followers within this community".

8 keys to creating, growing blogs within a news website | Poynter.

8 keys to creating, growing blogs within a news website | Poynter. | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
It’s not easy to craft a strategy for starting and growing blogs on a news website. But it is important. Blogs can be a magnet to attract a loyal audience around the most important subjects, and can improve the whole site around them.

 

I talked with Megan Liberman, The New York Times’ deputy news editor for blog development, who tangles with these issues every day, to help identify these eight keys to starting the right blogs and growing them harmoniously on a news site.

 

*When to create a blog

 

Blogs can be about anything, written by anyone. Where do you begin?

 

There are at least two essential ingredients for a good news website blog. The first one is Voice. You need the right kind of writer.

 

“Blogging is not [just] reporting… Blogs are not just news feeds. They do have to have more of an identity than that,” Liberman said. “There may be people who are great journalists and great reporters and even great writers, where blogging is less natural for them.”

 

One of the blogging format’s founding fathers, Dave Winer, described blogging most fundamentally as “the unedited voice of a person.” Of course some blog copy could use a second set of eyes, but the writing should carry the personal viewpoint or the authentic voice of an author.

So What is Open Journalism? – Doxa, Hyperplanes and the Intersection of Journalism and Technology « Data Miner UK

Yesterday saw the launch of The Guardian’s new ad campaign for their new ‘open’ approach to journalism. In terms of a newspaper which is metamorphosing into a digital information platform, this means:

 

"The newspaper is moving beyond a newspaper. Journalists are finding they can give the whole picture better".

 

The Guardian is ground-breaking; this is their identity, their ecological niche. Here they are finding new ground to embrace. The idea(ls) of ‘open’ is the hyperplane expansion resulting from the intersection of the journalism and technology. But wait. Hold on. What do I mean by this?

First things first, I studied Theoretical Physics, Zoology and Anthropology (don’t ask). So most of my thinking will be a mixture of physical constraints, natural selection and sociological observations. So let me talk to you about doxa, hyperplanes and the intersection of journalism and technology.

Doxa ia a term coined by the sociologist, Pierre Bourdieu. One way of understanding doxa and how it fits into the hyperplane model of social thinking is cars. The invention of the automobile was a paradigm shift in the concept of personal travel. This then shaped our physical landscape. The car industry then became intertwined in the performance of major economies. A car became not a machine, but a culture. It says as much about you as the job you have, the area you live in and the clothes you wear.

What makes a paradigm shift disruptive to society is the idea of scale. What the car has done to society it does to the individual in their lifetime. You need to learn to drive a car and once you do it, it becomes second nature. It becomes part of your bodily doxa. There is a threshold for a which a paradigm shift is worth this investment, but once that threshold is broken on a large scale, the whole of society becomes embroiled.

What do we mean by ‘longform journalism’ & how can we get it ‘to go’? | Poynter.

A Kickstarter project [http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/02/23/matters-vision-for-long-form-journalism/]  run by two journalists raised $50,000 in just 38 hours last week and has raised a total of $87,297 so far. The goal of the project, called “Matter,” is to “publish a single piece of top-tier long-form journalism about big issues in technology and science. That means no cheap reviews, no snarky opinion pieces, no top ten lists. Just one unmissable story.

 

The project raises interesting questions about what constitutes longform journalism. We know that technology has renewed attention to longform journalism in recent years. But it’s also changed how we think about it.

Do we define longform by the quality of the writing? By the amount of time it took to write? By the research it entailed? Or do we define it by length? The longform journalism site Longreads, for instance, asks people to “post their favorite stories over 1,500 words.”

Let me guess. You have a huge team of highly skilled designers and developers who use your unlimited budget to publish your beautiful, well-written content regularly for every type of device. Each device is then tested it to make sure it's an intuitive and readable experience for your loyal customers.

Probably not reality for most of us.

The great news is that digital subscriptions are growing and people are buying devices to read more content. It's an exciting time for digital publications, and marketplaces like Apple's Newsstand are helping consumers to find more of what they like and subscribe easily.
But here's the problem: device versions, hardware capabilities, operating systems, memory specifications and everything else are changing every day. So is the amount of content people read and interact with. Publishers need to be able to reach as broad an audience as they can while still maintaining a sane workflow and budget. How is this possible?

 

New tools for website owners, content managers, and publishers are growing, too. Below you'll find reviews of 10 methods of getting your content to a wider audience. I've included pros and cons for each tool as well as sample sites so you can see their end result in action.

Ethan Zuckerman had a great insight yesterday at the Knight Foundation event looking at the information needs of communities.

 

@EthanZ Social media is not one-to-many, it's one-to-some. Messages need amplifiers to reach a larger audience #infoneeds

 

Ethan pointed to the coverage of Tunisia and how the video of Mohamed Bouazizi’s self-immolation was uploaded to Facebook, one of the few such sites still accessible in Tunisia. Exiled Tunisian Sami ben Garbia covered the early stages of the revolution on her personal blog and also Nawaat.org, but Ethan noted at the time that there was precious little coverage, especially in the US. The video and story of Bouazizi’s self-immoltion was then picked up by Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera became the amplifier.

Greater accuracy through corrections tracking? - Editors Weblog | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

While new technology has changed just about everything when it comes to newspapers, some aspects persist. One of them is the regrettable presence of errors - they used to exist in print, and now they occur also online.

 

Thanks to technology, however, there are new tools that help combat mistakes in reporting. Writing for Poynter, Craig Silverman [http://www.poynter.org/latest-news/regret-the-error/164467/how-the-new-york-times-corrections-tracker-improves-accuracy/] examined how the New York Times keeps track of - and reacts to - errors on its pages and website.

Thanks to an internal database that the Times uses to track errors and corrections, the paper noticed that articles by one of its freelancers were being corrected increasingly often.

Le incertezze del giornalismo digitale « EJO – European Journalism Observatory

Le incertezze del giornalismo digitale « EJO – European Journalism Observatory | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

di Piero Macrì:

Sono un po’ scettico sul futuro del giornalismo digitale su iPad, quanto meno se continuerà a essere una semplice trasposizione dell’originale cartaceo. E’ vero, da quando è apparso sul mercato la futuribile tecnologia della Apple, i giornali hanno scommesso sulle potenzialità del mezzo, hanno investito e hanno creato una possibile alternativa al modello di sostenibilità economica che ha fino ad oggi sorretto la dimensione cartacea. I primi risultati sono incoraggianti, sebbene non si possa ancora parlare di percentuali di pubblico significative rispetto ai numeri della carta stampata. Comunque, è vero, l’iPad e succedanei (piattaforme Android) potranno facilitare nel tempo la migrazione dai giornali tradizionali alle edizioni digitali. Come dire, in un certo qual modo si riuscirà a compensare la perdita di lettori che si andrà progressivamente a evidenziare, con lo stesso identico trend cui abbiamo assistito in questi ultimi anni, sulla carta stampata.

La vera domanda, però, è se l’ipad sarà in grado di intercettare lettori che non siano quelli tradizionalmente legati alla formula del giornale di cellulosa. Insomma, o le edizioni digitali inizieranno a proporre contenuti che possono essere fruiti in modo originale e diverso dal modello della carta stampata, o l’iPad è destinato a un futuro incerto.

Felix Salmon: Matter’s Vision for Long-Form Journalism

Felix Salmon: Matter’s Vision for Long-Form Journalism | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Two days ago, a very exciting new journalism project was launched on Kickstarter. It’s called “Matter,” and it’s going to be home to long-form investigative narrative journalism about science and technology. “No cheap reviews, no snarky opinion pieces, no top ten lists,” they promise. “Just one unmissable story.”

They hit a nerve: As this is being published, some 48 hours after the Kickstarter campaign was launched, Matter has already exceeded its $50,000 funding goal with 826 backers — and 28 days to go. That’s an average of almost $60 each. “People are giving way more than I thought they would,” said co-founder Jim Giles when I talked to him Thursday. “We have tapped into frustration with the way the internet has promoted quick and cheap journalism and bashed longer-quality stuff, or at least undermined the business model that used to support that sort of thing.”

New model to support long-form journalism - Shaping the Future of the Newspaper Blog

New model to support long-form journalism - Shaping the Future of the Newspaper Blog | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

What do we want? In-depth journalism! When do we want it? Now!

 

Two reporters have responded to this rallying cry and have announced their intention to launch a new online technology magazine dedicated to long-form, quality journalism.

Jim Giles, who has written for Nature, The Atlantic, The Economist and New Scientist, and Bobbie Johnson, European editor for GigaOm and a previous tech reporter for The Guardian, created the project, which has been named Matter.

So why does Matter matter? According to a blog post [http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/readmatter/matter] by the new team, the idea is to foster thorough, long-form journalism rather than the "fast and cheap" reporting the web has encouraged so far. In a video introducing the project, Giles spells out the problem bluntly:

 

"The thing about long-form, in-depth journalism is that it's expensive. There used to be many more newspapers and magazines that produced that kind of content, but journalism is in financial trouble and those outlets have cut back."

 

Johnson says when it comes to long-form journalism "we all know how important it is, but yet we're not able to support it, we haven't built ways to do it. Frankly, if nobody sticks their neck out then it's going to die away."

 

To prevent this, Giles and Johnson are investing their hopes in a micro-payments based model to support thorough long-form reporting. The site will publish just one long story a week, without any of the cheap, fluffy articles that other sites use to pad out their content. The long pieces on Matter will be funded through individual payments from readers, set at around 99c per story.

 

Matter is also donation funded, using a model that encourages financial supporters to get involved in the editorial side of the publication. Giles and Johnson have used the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to ask for contributions to the project and supporters have been invited to donate between $1 and $3,000 - with different privileges attached to different rates. Those who donated $10 were promised Matter's first three stories for free, plus a credit on the website. Those who gave over $25 were asked to join the "editorial board". This means they will be asked to contribute to and comment on story ideas via the crowd-sourcing tool All Our Ideas.
