2012: The year in mobile photography

2012: The year in mobile photography | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

While 2011 marked many milestones for mobile photography (including the explosive growth of Instagram, numerous major gallery showings of mobile photography art, the first major mobile photography conference, the formation of mobile shooter “super groups” like the Mobile Photo Group, JUXT and AMPt, the abundance of mobile images in photojournalism, and so much more) that it didn’t seem possible 2012 could be any bigger for the nascent art of mobile photography.

El Gobierno y los socialistas portugueses, de acuerdo en censurar a la Prensa

El Gobierno y los socialistas portugueses, de acuerdo en censurar a la Prensa | Working Stuff | Scoop.it
Portugal celebra los 40 años de libertad de expresión, pero parece que no cumplirá los 41 años. Con nocturnidad y alevosía, con una celeridad desconocida en este país, los tres partidos mayoritarios, los gobernantes PSD y CDS, y el principal partido de la oposición, el Partido Socialista, se han puesto de acuerdo para un proyecto de ley que pretende establecer el control previo de los medios de comunicación en la próxima campaña electoral.

Pew Report: News consumers are increasingly using smartphones

Pew Research Center releases report on news consumption highlighting the importance of mobile (Poynter)

-------------------------------------------------------

The survey also finds that a substantial number of smartphone owners use their phone to follow along with news events near and far, to share details of local happenings with others, and to navigate the world around them:

68% of smartphone owners use their phone at least occasionally to follow along with breaking news events, with 33% saying that they do this “frequently.”67% use their phone to share pictures, videos, or commentary about events happening in their community, with 35% doing so frequently.56% use their phone at least occasionally to learn about community events or activities, with 18% doing this “frequently.”67% of smartphone owners use their phone at least occasionally for turn-by-turn navigation while driving, with 31% saying that they do this “frequently.”25% use their phone at least occasionally to get public transit information, with 10% doing this “frequently.”

The numbers track with traffic trends that many news organizations, including BuzzFeed, The New York Times and CNN, have seen in recent years. In 2013, mobile traffic doubled as networks quickened their pace and the size of smartphone screens increased, Brian Chen wrote for The New York Times.

As readers flock to their cellphones, news organizations have adopted strategies to create a mobile-centric news report. BuzzFeed’s content management system now incorporates a mobile preview to encourage journalists to emphasize cellphone and tablet presentation, and some outlets, such as The New York Times, have adjusted their product development teams to tackle mobile assignments. The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times have de-emphasized the importance of the front page in editorial meetings, preferring to develop a continuous

What are they thinking? Mark Thompson makes Kinsey Wilson the Times’ top digital guy

What are they thinking? Mark Thompson makes Kinsey Wilson the Times’ top digital guy | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

In a move both opportunistic and commonsensical, The New York Times finally filled its top digital job Monday. Kinsey Wilson becomes the Times’ first executive vice president for product and technology, charged with the huge task of rethinking The New York Times—as a product.

Curiously, Wilson is both an outsider and an internal hire, having joined the Times less than two months ago as editor for strategy and innovation. With this fast promotion he will report jointly to C.E.O. Mark Thompson, who made his final decision on the job within the last two weeks, and to Executive Editor Dean Baquet, who first brought the 59-year-old into his newsroom and the company.

It’s as fast a rise as the Times has ever seen, and one that will be richly dissected

His appointment has all the strategic, political and family angles you expect at the Times.

"Project Syria": An Immersive Journalism Experience

"Project Syria": An Immersive Journalism Experience | Working Stuff | Scoop.it
Nearly one half of Syria’s 23 million people have been displaced in its civil war and no group has been as severely affected as children. Children make up more than half of the three million refugees living in camps or makeshift housing and some news reports indicate that children are actually being specifically targeted in the violence.

Originally commissioned by the World Economic Forum and created at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, this immersive journalism piece focuses on the plight of these children. Using elements are drawn from actual audio, video and photographs taken on scene, Project Syria employs new virtual reality technologies to put the audience “on scene” and evoke the feeling of “being there.” Through real time graphics from the Unity game engine and the sense of presence evoked through high-resolution virtual reality goggles and compelling audio, Project Syria takes the audience to the real events as they transpire.

BuzzFeed and The New York Times Play Facebook’s Ubiquity Game

BuzzFeed and The New York Times Play Facebook’s Ubiquity Game | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

As publishers hammer out the all-important details of their Facebook partnerships, all are aiming to answer this question: Where do we find sufficient money to pay the content producers? That’s the big question here for BuzzFeed, The New York Times, and any and all other publishers who get faint when they do the math of Facebook’s outsized reach. While the goal of making money is a common one, the potential benefits of a broad Facebook partnership may differ for these two companies. The ubiquity game offers different rules to BuzzFeed than to the Times.

Let’s think about those fundamental differences between the two, which can stand in as a proxy for legacy companies on the one hand and digital startups on the other — and how they inform what kinds of Facebook partnership deals may get signed.

The New York Times is creating one-sentence stories for the Apple Watch

The New York Times is creating one-sentence stories for the Apple Watch | Working Stuff | Scoop.it

The New York Times is introducing a new form of storytelling designed specifically for the Apple Watch, according to a press release, as the newspaper will send out one-sentence stories "crafted specially for small screens."

The one-sentence stories are meant to make it easy for Apple Watch users to quickly learn the important details of a story so they can "catch up in seconds" as they go about their day. These shortened stories will cover many of the popular sections of The New York Times, covering Business, Tech, Politics, Science, and The Arts. 

While the stories won't features paragraphs of text, each one-sentence story will also include photos and a bullet summaries of the key facts. Interestingly enough, screenshots of the app shared by Time deputy tech editor Alex Fitzpatrick also show that emojis will be used.
