benjamin costello's curator insight, May 20, 6:16 PM

This scoop is a bit more political than I should post but the idea of it is great. It is already happening. History is being shown through millions of pictures of the same or similar topics or events. History still needs more information but it is a start towards gaining a public history aspect to the history profession.

Apps versus the web

There's an involved, technical and (for people like me) fascinating conversation in tech about smartphone apps and the web - what can each do, how does discovery work, how do they interplay, what does Google plan with
Chrome, how watches affect things, whether the web will take over as the dominant form and so on.

Under threat - the changing state of media safety

Under threat - the changing state of media safety | New Journalism | Scoop.it

There has long been a mantra in journalism that no story is worth dying for.

But there are stories worth taking risks for. The anxious issue of our time is assessing those risks as clearly and carefully as we can.

Never have we lived in a time when journalists, their editors, and media organisations like INSI spend so much effort and care trying to assess the dangers.

But never has there been a time when journalists have faced such odds of being in the right place at the wrong time.

In all too many places, we are no longer just taking calculated risks to report on the front line.

We are the front line.

Unresolved murders, kidnappings for ransom, beheadings are now happening at an alarming rate. Now, all too often, we are also the story. That's not the way journalism should be.

New business models for new media

Not all of them necessarily will cross the chasm, but each is helping to write the new rules for new media, which are distinctly different from the rules followed by most of the old media companies.  Old media companies would be well advised to pay attention to the newcomers.
