Broadcast Journalism 2013 Trends

Visual storytelling tool for journalists Storyplanet aiming for 2013 public launch

Storyplanet, which was backed by MIT's Joichi Ito and former head of online at Al Jazeera English Mohamed Nanabhay, lets journalists package content into interactive experiences

The new site makes it easier and faster for anyone with a web-capable cellphone to access information about academics, admissions, athletics, and directions to the College.

This is something you are going to see more of throughout the year.

I have two sites myself that are geared toward smartphone use: this weblog's mobile site as well as my mobi-journal.

Despite a brief outage dubbed the “G-pocalypse”, Storyful and Google held a successful online hangout in December 2012 to discuss “the continued challenges faced by journalists trying to verify content in real-time, and the possibilities offered by technology during a big news event.”

The panel covering this issue was made up of journalists, editors and social media experts from both sides of the Atlantic. Hosted in front of a live audience at Google’s Dublin HQ it was also joined by journalism students from Ireland and the US.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
