How the Smartphone Ushered In a Golden Age of Journalism

How the Smartphone Ushered In a Golden Age of Journalism | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it


The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Frank Rose:  "When I first arrived in New York, some time back in the last century, I gazed in awe and fascination at subway riders reading The New York Times. Thanks to a precise and universally adopted method of folding the paper (had it been taught in schools?), they could read it and even turn its pages without thrusting them in anyone else's face.

A fresh look a news. The reporting and spreading of news. But, it seems, still emphasizing the same boring 'Masters of the Universe.' 

Roger Ellman's curator insight, August 7, 2014 9:53 AM

Moving forward - there's every reason to adapt and adopt. Like vinyl records and old photographic film, some old media methods will become a collectors (small audience) market, leaving mainstream media in the new delivery vehicles of our day today, and tomorrow's (there's the trick, working out what THEY will be!).

The lines at SxSW definitely tell the story: this isn't just the year of the story, it's the decade of coordinated, additive and interactive storytelling across multiple media channels for everything from entertainment and branding to education and journalism. It all starts with the story.

Minna Kilpeläinen's curator insight, January 12, 4:35 PM

If journalists want to raise real awareness of what is going on in the world, they can´t just offer the audience facts and images.  They also have to give possibilities to feel the reality. Nonny de la Peña´s Project Syria is a great example of it.

Mervi Rauhala's curator insight, January 13, 1:42 AM
