“Technology is irresistible and it is deadly, if you don’t get the technology you will die. … Technology has no sympathy for you.”
“The problem is you have to understand it’s a different game from doing newspapers, but we don’t want to imitate the broadcasters,” “It’s a completely new grammar you’re trying to bring to the web.”
Bas Broekhuizen, editor of Volkskrant TV
Daily Telegraph Method
“For each breaking story, a “story owner” is assigned. It is this person’s job to plan, commission and monitor each story across all platforms.
Roussel said his vision of a successful website is one which has it all. He displayed an ideal schedule for how the Telegraph would successfully handle breaking news:
- 11:15: Send out alerts via SMS/e-mail/desktop widgets
- 11:25: Have 150 words online, begin soliciting readers’ help
- 12:15: Update story, add images and audio
- 13:15: Add analysis, topic page
- 15:15: Have multiple angles, analysis, opinion (from readers), multi-media (picture galleries, video, graphics)
“In four hours you want to feel you’ve covered multiple angles of the story,” Roussel said.”
