From the advent of the printing press to the emergence of photography, radio, television, and now the Internet and mobile devices, journalists have always found ways to adapt to new technologies by changing the way they tell stories and reach audiences. Interactive and participatory documentaries offer a new opportunity in that development. They provide immersive, visual, and mobile-friendly storytelling techniques; provoke creative collaborations across institutions, "desks" and with publics; and stimulate the use of often overlooked assets such as archives. By so doing, they provide an array of solutions for journalistic institutions that wish to reach a new generation of users and make use of today's technological developments.
The best journalism comes with the same meticulous care as the best poetry. The words of a lede are carefully chosen to not only convey facts but also emotion and purpose. Each shot or soundbite chosen to take a viewer on a journey. This is true not just of narrative or long form journalism but spot reporting, and dare I say it, tweeting.
Right after the sale of FORBES was announced, I got a gracious and astute email from an industry colleague I have followed closely for 10 years. He expressed admiration for our accomplishments -- the reinvention of a grand old media brand by way of new models for journalism and advertising. [...]
Peut-on écrire sur l’actualité économique du nord de la France ou de Lorraine à partir du Maroc? A la lecture de la Gazette Nord-Pas de Calais, la Gazette de Picardie ou des Tablettes lorraines, il semble que oui. Ces titres dirigés par Arnould Méplon, expert-comptable de formation, recourent aux services de deux jeunes rédacteurs installés près de Marrakech, pour des portraits d’entreprises, de «belles histoires» entrepreneuriales, des notes de conjoncture...
La question pourrait paraître évidente, et pourtant jamais la frontière entre ces deux terminologies n'a été aussi mince. La défiance que rencontrent actuellement les journalistes ne doit pas y être pour rien. Dans le même temps, il y aurait aux États-Unis quatre fois de plus de communicants que de journalistes. Un combat perdu d'avance? Pas si on considère que chacun remplit une fonction au sein de notre société.
Deux rendez-vous radio par jour sur France Inter, un humour cinglant et un regard ironique sur nos travers franchouillards: décidément, cette ancienne du Soir et de la RTBF, diplômée de l'Ecole supérieure de journalisme de Paris, est un concentré de bonne ondes.

Robo-journalists, an ongoing battle between publishers and adblockers, bendy smartphones and social media for the workplace; the Reuters Institute launches its new Digital News Project with a set of technology and industry predictions for the global media’s year ahead.
The recent boom in “data-driven” journalism projects is exciting. It can elevate our knowledge, enliven statistics, and make us all more numerate. But I worry that data give commentary a false sense of authority since data analysis is inherently prone to bias. The author’s priors, what he believes or wants to be true before looking at the data, often taint results that might appear pure and scientific. Even data-backed journalism is opinion journalism. So as we embark on this new wave of journalism, we should be aware of what we are getting and what we should trust.
I thought I had Twitter all figured out. Then I decided to use the micro-blogging site to conduct a real-time Q&A with an author while unsuspecting followers watched. How clever, I told myself. How madcap! How wrong I was. But here, tweeters, is how to do it right: 1. Think days, not minutes. My first […]
