How to build a fictional world - Kate Messner

How to build a fictional world - Kate Messner | Journalism, information and mass media communications | Scoop.it
Why is J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy so compelling? How about The Matrix or Harry Potter?
What makes these disparate worlds come alive are clear, consistent
rules for how people, societies -- and even the laws of physics --
function in these fictional universes. Author Kate Messner offers a few
tricks for you, too, to create a world worth exploring in your own
words.

This post is actually about personal branding for journalists, as opposed to journalism done by brands.

And the answer to the poster's queston is, no, don't ignore a career in traditional media and concentrate on building your personal brand. Rather, use personal branding to help in your search for a job in a media company.

Using ‘generic’ illustrations in news stories dishonours the dead and distorts the truth

Using ‘generic’ illustrations in news stories dishonours the dead and distorts the truth | Journalism, information and mass media communications | Scoop.it
We all know about Photoshop and the dissimulation of truth.  A picture taken recently of an armed Syrian fighter with a rifle in his hand contained an unexplained video-camera in the bottom left hand corner. So the photographer, in the interests of clarity, deleted the intruding camera in favour of some grainy trench wall.

David Patton's curator insight, December 29, 2013 4:45 PM

In a few ways, notably the rising tide of crap of all kinds in media and the loss of some of the valuable journalism of the past, this is cause for deep worry. Yet there's plenty of reason for optimism, too: amid all the garbage, is more quality information than we've had access to before. Increasingly, the trick will be finding it.

10 years of social media by the numbers

10 years of social media by the numbers | Journalism, information and mass media communications | Scoop.it

Facebook launched ten years ago in February 2004. Social media hasn't, doesn't and won't stay still. As Myspace rises, Friendster declines. The pattern's repeated itself a few times already, and even Google hasn't quite cracked the magic social network formula, at least not yet. The crown currently belongs to Facebook, a company that's made some big, big startup purchases on the way, although Twitter continues to pack (arguably) more influence. A whole lot has happened in the last decade, but we've tried to squeeze the more interesting parts into something a little more visual.

70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day

70% of Time Could Be Used Better - How the Best CEOs Get the Most Out of Every Day | Journalism, information and mass media communications | Scoop.it
The average tech CEO works about 300 days a year, 14 hours a day. That’s 4,200 hours a year. The stats for most other tech leaders and startup employees aren’t too far off. It sounds like a lot of time, but for most, it’s not enough. Nearly 30% of that time gets sunk into email. Another third gets spent in meetings — and studies show that half of those hours are completely wasted.
Looking at the schedule of a typical CEO, a full 70% of that time is sub-optimal, and I’ll back that up with my own experience. Prior to joining First Round as a partner, I served as Co-Founder and CEO for three companies, including LiveOps. Today, I meet with dozens of founders every week, helping them grow their teams and get more productivity out of themselves and the people they work with. They know they should be using every hour to move their companies forward, create great products, close deals and hire the best candidates. Many just can’t find the time. So, how do we get better?
This year, I spent several weeks leading up to our annual CEO Summit catching up with people I know who do a superhuman job at managing their time. My goal was to capture the tools, tips and hacks they use to make every work hour count. Below, I share eight strategies that have worked for them and for me, so we can all stop wasting time and missing out on opportunities.

From being a nerdy, expert-driven pseudo-science, SEO became much more human through the influence of social media.

Los problemas del periodismo tradicional no son los que el fundamentalista Feinman, obediente a las consignas de su secta kichnerista, señala, sino tienen su origen en la gran transformación que se inició con la llegada del medio virtual, una revolución tan radical como la que supuso la invención de la escritura primero y luego la de la imprenta. Nuevos retos exigen nuevas actitudes y estrategias.
