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. The trick? Folding those big, inky broadsheets into neat little rectangles—roughly the same size, in fact, as an iPad." ...

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!).

"There’s a huge underserved population today who are consuming content on their phones and we’re giving them a crappy experience. We’re telling them, “Here’s how the web works for you: You have to pinch and zoom your way through sites that were designed for a much larger monitor, you’re going to get errors and the fonts are going to be really tiny.”
