Entrevista em | Crowdsourcing | an interview – Spot Dave Cohn


logo

Um dos projectos desta semana é preparar uma entrevista ao Dave Cohn, um dos contemplados com um prémio Knight News Challenge, com o seu Spot.us.

No espírito comunitário do projecto do Dave e do próprio KNC, vou abrir a oportunidade de colaborarem comigo na preparação de entrevista que lhe vou fazer. Isto não é uma forma de ter menos trabalho, é apenas uma maneira de vos dar a conhecer o trabalho dele, e se quiserem, colaborar neste trabalho.  Mas há regras e directrizes:

– em baixo vou deixar uma lista de links sobre o Dave e o Spot.us. Se encontrarem outros pertinentes, contribuam;

– juntamente com essa lista estão meia dúzia de perguntas que não são definitivas, por isso, deixem as questões que gostariam que o Dave respondesse. Só aceito UMA questão por pessoa, por isso, pensem bem no que querem saber;

– há um limite para o número de perguntas que lhe vou fazer, no máximo 12/15, por isso o grupo final de questões serão escolhidas por mim, por motivos de sequência lógica de entrevista. Todos os autores das perguntas escolhidas serão creditados;

– ainda não discuti com o Dave qual será o meio da entrevista, mas por motivos práticos deverá ser por email. Mas tentarei que seja noutro formato mais interessante, depende tudo da disponibilidade dele;

– para contribuirem, basta só deixarem o vosso link ou pergunta na caixa de comentários deste post com identificação e email válidos. Não há espaço para anónimos;

– o prazo para as vossas contribuições termina às 15 horas da próxima segunda terça-feira TMG;

E é tudo. Colaborem e descubram como e por quem foi feito um dos mais interessantes projectos do jornalismo moderno.

One of this week’s project is to prepare an interview with Dave Cohn, one of the contemplated with a Knight News Challenge award, with his project Spot.us.

In the communitarian spirit present in Dave’s project and KNC itself, i’m giving you the chance to work with me preparing this interview. This is not a way to work less, or live off of your effort, it’s just a way to get you acquainted to his work, and if you want, collaborate in this assignment. But there are rules and guidelines:

– below i’ll be leaving a list of links about Dave and Spot.us. If you find others that may turn out useful for this work, add them;

– along with that list there is half dozen questions that are not the definitive ones, so , ask your  own questions to Dave. I’ll only take ONE question per contributor, so think carefully about what you want to know;

– there’s a limit for the number of questions to be asked, 12/15 tops, so the final group of questions will be chosen by me, in order to keep a logic sequence for the interview. All the authors of those questions will get a byline;

– i haven’t discussed with Dave what will be the medium for this interview, but for practical reasons  probably it will be by email. But i’ll try to present it in another format, it depends on Dave’s availability;

– to contribute, all you have to do is to leave you link or question in the comment box for this post with your name and a valid email. There’s no room for anonymous;

– the deadline for your contributions is next Monday Tuesday , until 3 p.m. GMT;

And that’s it. Collaborate and find how – and by whom- one of the most interesting projects in modern journalism was (is being) made.

Perguntas | Questions

How was it for you when you knew you won the knight news challenge award?

I’ve been following the evolution of spot.us, with all it’s episodes. Has it become a more daunting task than you expected?

Has corporate journalism become too biased? Do you think this way you escape the kind of pressures traditional media suffers?

Is the picture of the world brought by traditional media too narrow?

How has your perspective on journalism – as a business and as a service (or as a process, like you say) – changed since the beggining of spot.us?

What about the expectations from the “crowdfunders”? How do you manage reporters so they can bring a good story that lives up to them?

    Very cool!

    Looking forward to the questions and giving the most open honest answers I can.

  2. 4 de Setembro de 2008 às 8:51 pm

    Dave took only 5 seconds to leave the comment above after i pushed the publish button. He’s always on top of things. The man is up for it, do your part now!

    looking forward to reading that interview, i’m sure it’ll be very interesting.

    will try to come up with a question before the deadline.

    spot.us is such an interesting project and i’ve been watching its development as close as i can.

    thanks🙂

    I hope you come up with something, V. I’m counting on you😉

    And people, spread the word!

    Olá,

    Gostava de deixar uma sugestão para uma pergunta:

    In which way do you think that projects like spot.us can contribute to change the communication paradigm in the near future, regarding technological democracy and having in account the ultimate objective of total independence towards corporate media?

  6. 5 de Setembro de 2008 às 2:36 pm

    Obrigado Nuno,

    tough question hehe. It’s been noted. Thanks

    e um abraço🙂

  7. 8 de Setembro de 2008 às 5:06 am

    I’d like to ask Dave how open he is to the possibility of Spot.us expanding to other regions (and other countries) and how hard he thinks that would be.
    🙂

    Thanks for you question Vera! I knew i could count on you😉

    And for all of you out there: we need more questions. Me and Dave are waiting for your participation. Pose a question about Spot.us or about Dave and be a part of the interview.

    Thanks

  9. 9 de Setembro de 2008 às 1:06 pm

    I’m almost late! Here’s my question. I hope you find it interesting:

    I’m interested in agenda issues. Are you going to track whether a story has been covered before or not in media and the differences between media and spot.us coverage?

    What I want to know is if this new model that gives the people the editorial power of choosing what they want/is going to be covered results in a agenda different of what the media are proposing, if there is a gap between what the newspapers are giving and what the people want to know, and if Spot.us fills this gap.

    Wheew! I hope I’m making myself clear.

    Thanks Alonso, I can see everybody likes to be on the deadline hehe.

    I’ll push it until 20.00 GMT tomorrow, so we can have a few more questions, if possible.

    I’m waiting for you people!!!!

  11. 9 de Setembro de 2008 às 1:16 pm

    Dave – How many journalists do you think a project like this can hire full time?

  12. 9 de Setembro de 2008 às 1:19 pm

    Obrigado Paulo😉

    Well, damn the deadline… were taking last minute calls until tomorrow, follow the links, see what spot.us is all about and ask away.

  13. 9 de Setembro de 2008 às 1:25 pm

    Q – how aware are the offline community about Spot.Us’ activity and do you have any plans for how to market the project further?

    P.S. My vote goes to Alexandre’s question 4

  14. 9 de Setembro de 2008 às 1:29 pm

    Thanks Laura, that is two questions lol. But i get your point, and i was thinking about asking something like that.

    Keep’em coming.
