Is audio going to be bigger than video for the multimedia journalist?| Poynter.

Is audio going to be bigger than video for the multimedia journalist?| Poynter. | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Audio is becoming a force in Internet content, well beyond music and radio streaming.

SoundCloud CEO Alexander Ljung put it starkly at the French Internet conference, Le Web, earlier this month: Sound will be bigger than video, he said.

You might expect those words coming from the head of a company that relies on wide adoption of audio for its business, but his argument was convincing. Recording audio is less intrusive than recording video. Everyone who has a smartphone doesn’t just have a camera in their pocket, but a microphone. And unlike video, you can listen to audio you and others create when you’re doing other things.

Top 50 multimedia packages of 2011

Top 50 multimedia packages of 2011 | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

It’s always fun to revisit multimedia projects at the end of the year when I create my ‘top 50′ list. As I do each year, I must stress that this is my list and not a definitive ‘best of’ list simply because I have not seen all multimedia created and thus cannot create a comprehensive list.

Therefore, below are 50 projects that have inspired me most in 2011. A reader suggested last year that I better organize the sites, so I decided to pick 10 each from the five sectors: journalism, advertising, student work, philanthropy, and documentary.

Newspaper companies will continue to cut costs, maximize profits (or minimize losses), and do their best ostrich imitations until they find themselves under siege once again.

They’re standing up for traditional values — and what could be more traditional than failing to plan for the future?
