Entrevista aberta | Dave Cohn | Open Interview

Cohn

Knight News Challenge winner David Cohn of Spot.us gets geeky at the MIT Media Lab. - Amy Gahran

Continua em andamento a preparação da entrevista ao Dave Cohn, criador do Spot.us, um projecto que promove o jornalismo em crowdfunding.

E continuo à espera da vossa participação nesta entrevista. Já sabem o que têm que fazer e até quando. Temos uma participação mas são precisas mais. O Dave Cohn ficou muito interessado no que pode sair desta entrevista por isso, mãos à obra.

O timing é perfeito: o Spot.us está prestes a sair de uma fase (pré)beta bem sucedida, e apresenta em breve o seu site definitivo.

Ficam abaixo mais uns links para a nossa investigação.

It’s in process the interview i’ll be doing to Dave Cohn, the creator of Spot.us, a project that promotes crowdfunded journalism.

And i’m still waiting for your participation in this process. You already know what to do and what’s your deadline. We already have one participation, but we need more. Dave is looking forward for what may come out of this interview, so get to work.

The timing is perfect: Spot.us is about to terminate it’s rather successful (pre)beta phase, and will move forward to the official webpage.

Below, a few more links for our research.

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?

Não é o jornalismo, é o modelo | It’s not journalism, it’s the model

“O que está em crise não é o jornalismo…é o modelo de jornalismo que se pratica”

__________________________________________

“It’s not journalism that’s in crisis…it’s the practised journalism model”

O bem regressado Luis Santos do Atrium, recolheu no Infotendencias esta entrevista com José Cevera,  director da Escuela de Periodismo Digital, que descobri agora que foi criada pelo grupo a que pertence o 20minutos.es , ou seja, a orientação é realmente web.

Entre as frases mais sonantes desta entrevista está esta: “O nome ‘jornalismo cidadão’ é abominável e deriva de um fracasso profundo da profissão jornalística”. Para ver e ouvir com atenção.

The well returned Luis Santos from Atrium, picked from Infotendencias this interview with José Cevera, director of the Escuela de Periodismo Digital (Digital Journalism School), created by the same group that owns 20minutos.es , which means they’re really web oriented.

Among the most resonating quotes from this interview is this one: “The name  “Citizen Journalism” is abominable, and comes from a profound failure of the journalistic profession.” To see and hear carefully.

O que diz Cevera no video:

“O nome ‘jornalismo cidadão’ é abominável e deriva de um fracasso profundo da profissão jornalística”

“A indústria tem um problema – não consegue ganhar dinheiro a fazer o que fazia antes; a questão é que não pode continuar a fazer o que fazia antes (…) Os nossos produtos, aquilo a que chamávamos ‘notícia’, aquilo a que chamávamos ‘meio de comunicação’ já não valem”

“Se um produto profissional é tão parecido como o produto desenvolvido por um amador a tal ponto que se confundem o profissional tem um problema: está a fazer um produto mau”

“O que está em crise não é o jornalismo…é o modelo de jornalismo que se pratica”

Os nossos ‘produtos’ já não valem, Luis Santos

Interview: Charlie Beckett on SuperMedia – English version

Interview: Charlie Beckett on SuperMedia @ OJB

The english version – edited (=improved) by Paul Bradshaw is available here

“This book is my manifesto for the media as a journalist but also as a citizen of the world. As a journalist you are constantly being told that the news media have enormous power to shape society and events, to change lives and history. So why are we so careless as a society about the future of journalism itself ?” [1]

Saving JournalismThis is how Charlie Beckett presents his book “SuperMedia: Saving Journalism So It Can Save The World” (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008), in which he tackles the main challenges to journalistic practice in our days, and its influence to maintain free and democratic societies .

Charlie Beckett is a journalist with a 20 yearscareer at the BBC and ITN, and he is also the founding Director of POLIS, a think tank about journalism and society at the London School of Economics. “SuperMedia” is a work that gathers and structures several streams of thought about the future of Journalism as a essential service to contemporary societies, and how the changes in the news industry, beyond inevitable, are necessary.

Naked Media Show: Jay Rosen

O Naked Media Show é um videocast da ScribeMedia.org, que para o seu primeiro episódio convidou Jay Rosen. Os modelos de negócio da para a internet e muito mais num programa muito interessante.

The Naked Media Show is ScribeMedia.org’s videocast, that invited for their first episode Jay Rosen. Internet business models and a whole lot more in a very interesting show.

For our first Naked Media show, NYU journalism professor, PressThink blogger and media experimenter Jay Rosen eloquently addressed the need for someone to foot the bill for the journalism . “We’re in between business models,” he said. He held up Talking Points Memo, which he said is profitable, as a model to follow. He broke the news that New York University is launching a new program, in Fall of ‘09, that mingles innovation with journalism, perhaps in a business or tech way. And he explained why he thinks New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger may not be up to the task of leading the Grey Lady into the new era.

Entrevistas online | Online interviews

The Halifax Evening Courier will tomorrow launch an online feature enabling it to crowd-source questions for high-profile interviews that have been selected and approved by its readership.

The Johnston Press title is the first newspaper in the UK to make use of technology from interactive news site Yoosk that allows readers to submit and vote on questions they want to be put to interview subjects.

Halifax Evening Courier to crowd-source interview questions

Eu desde cedo me apercebi que era péssimo a fazer entrevistas. Com o tempo e com dedicação (estudar estudar estudar fazer fazer fazer) consegui melhorar e agora é uma das minhas modalidades favoritas.

Mas agora é tudo muito mais simples (ou não): existem novas ferramentas que permitem aos utilizadores – a verdadeira razão de se fazer uma entrevista, embora haja quem pense que são os entrevistados – participarem activamente no processo. O Halifax Evening Courier em colaboração com o Yoosk vai permitir a participação dos seus leitores no questionário a algumas personalidades. Assim, as questões são mais abrangentes e não ficam limitadas a uma agenda estabelecida pelo entrevistador, que pode ter razões ulteriores ou pouco conhecimento sobre algumas matérias (ou seja, de pouca qualidade).

As possibilidades para entrevistas em tempo real e com a participação dos utilizadores aumentam com a utilização do Twitter ou do CoverItLive. No Twitter vamos dar como exemplo um programa de rádio, que receberia as questões para o seu convidado em estúdio através desta aplicação, em tempo real, e em 140 caracteres. Mais conciso é complicado.

O CoverItLive já permite outra margem de manobra, com respostas escritas pelo convidado a questões que poderão ser mais elaboradas. Ainda tem a vantagem de se poder manter uma sondagem durante a entrevista através da mesma plataforma. Este formato funciona melhor para um jornal, já que a transcrição seria publicada na edição impressa do dia seguinte, condensada para a online, e o original da manter-se-ia no site.

E sabem de uma coisa? São de borla.

Since early days i realised i was lousy with interviews. With time and dedication (study study study do do do) i managed to improve my skills and now is one of my favorite formats.

But now everything is a whole lot easier (or not): there are new tools that allow users – the true reason for making an interview, although some might think it’s the interviewee – participate actively in the process. The Halifax Evening Courier along with Yoosk is opening the questioning of some personalities to their readers. Thus, the range of questions will broaden and won’t be limited to a hidden agenda of the interviewer, due to ulterior motives, or for being short in his knowledge about some issues (which means, a poor quality professional).

The possibilities for real time interviews and with user participation increase when we apply Twitter or CoverItLive. With Twitter – for example, in a radio show – we can receive the questions to the guest in the studio through this application, in real time, and in 140 characters. More concise is complicated.

CoverItLive offers a different margin for manouevre, with answers written by the guest to more ellaborate questions. It also has the advantage of running a poll during the interview inside this platform. This format works better for newspapers, since the transcript could be printed for the next days issue, condensed for the online edition, and the original could stay up in the website.

And do you know what? It’s free.

Entrevista| Interview : How important is blogging to you?

Dei esta entrevista a Azeem Ahmad há já umas semanas, para uma dissertação para o Curso de Jornalismo da Universidade de Birmingahm, onde ele é estudante. Para já fica sem tradução, mas se pedirem com jeitinho….

I gave this interview to Azeem Ahmad, a journalism student at Birmingham U. for a dissertation he was writing, a couple of weeks ago. I hope these thoughts were useful.

How important is blogging to you, and your business?

Extremely important. As a freelance (make that unemployed) journalist, i had to create a portfolio to show off my abilities, conduct some research…It’s been my main activity for this past year, and i wish i could make money out of it, but for now it has helped me to create a network of professional contacts, that already came in handy.

Why do you think blogs are so popular?

The popularity of blogs, as writing is concerned, relates to the need we all have to:

1st- communicate
2nd- express ourselves
3rd- be admired for the things we do

There are other reasons, but i believe that from the confessional to the professional kind, these three are always present. And regular blog readers like blogs because:

1st- they like the person behind the blog
2nd- they hate the person behind the blog
3rd- they find a type of content that is more appealing to them than print, radio or tv

From these, the latter is the most important: blogs provide a unique vision on a subject, not only due to the bloggers persona and ontology, but because of the experience that can be enhanced by embedding multimedia elements in text. So we both value the intimacy and intelligence that blogs hold, and the fireworks created by technlogy.

And, above all, the interaction between creator/reader and reader/reader, promotes a sharing experience that is the main element in the new forms of communication.


Why do you believe that so many people now have blogs?

Because they can. Blogs are the death of padlock diaries hidden under little girls beds. People now can express freely (anonimously or not) about what they want the way they want. And the technology is so simple that anyone can use it. Blogs became the ultimate form of personal expression in our age. People share so much information about themselves and their knowledge that it became addictive to follow and create more information, trade it, all of this for free.

What do you understand by the term ‘Citizen Journalist’?

Someone who doesn’t make a living as a journalist, but that creates/gathers/contributes with news content, motivated by opportunity, civical conscience, or personal entertainment.


Do you think the events of 9/11 in New York catapulted UGC, and blogging into the mainstream?

It sure helped to give more visibility to blogging, but it was such a strong issue that anything about it was relevant in the stream of information. There were many strong opinions then in the blogosphere wich helped to give credit to this news information source, but most of them came from established opinion makers, not from the regular folk. And it coincided with the appearance of new blogging platforms, better internet connections, user-friendly software, which means it all happened at the same time: a huge event that triggered expert reactions in a new environment that right after became more accessible to anyone.

How importantly do you value UGC (User Generated Content) such as Photo’s/Video’s that are sent in by the public?

I find them extremely important, journalists can´t be everywhere,or as fast as they need, but now we can have the footage right away, the decisive moment captured by witnesses. I guess it’s like when the reporter got to the scene and asked to someone who was there “what happened?”. Now we don’t even have to ask. Content is king, no matter where it comes from. But we still need skilled persons to do the job.

Do you see blogging as an alternative to traditional journalism?

No, blogging and journalism are two different things. I can do journalism with my blog, but that means i have this set of rules similar to journalism rules and ethics (or not, but as long my goal is to share the truth about a specific event, and the truth here being my version of reality based on verifiable facts). Blogging is not a name for an activity, but a format. Journalists will have to learn how to work with a blog format, like they have to learn to work for a radio or tv format. A blogger can be a journalist or vice-versa, but journalism will be journalism no matter what.The difference is not in the medium but in the purpose. That’s why propaganda is different from journalism too.

Posso estar doido… | I might be crazy…

…mas não estou sozinho. | …but i’m not alone.

Depois de ter acabado de escrever este post há dois dias atrás (traduzido para português aqui) pensei que tinha sido desta que me tinha passado. Foi a reacção a umas semanas a ler posts e artigos sobre o futuro do jornalismo, e apesar de não inventar a roda, achei que haveria muita gente a reagir mal ao que escrevi. Nem mal nem bem. Tive umas dezenas de leitores mas nem um pingback ou comentário. Não estou à espera que se transforme num post de referência, mas também não queria que fosse inofensivo. E foram umas horas furiosas de escrita que deram num texto longo e difícil, mas que até nem tem assim tão más ideias. O melhor foi ver que há mais gente, mais avalizada, que diz o que eu digo, ou algo próximo. Em breve virá a versão portuguesa e pode ser que alguém reaja.

After finishing writing this post a couple of days ago, i thought that this time i had gone over the edge. It was a reaction to weeks of post and article reading about the future of journalism, and though i know i wasn’t inventing the wheel, i thought that i would get some strong reactions to what i wrote. Well, neither good nor bad. I had a few dozens of readers, but not a single pingback or comment. I’m not expecting it turns to a reference post, but i didn’t want it to become something harmless. And those were a few furious hours of writing that gave a long hard text, but that has a few good ideas. The best thing was to see that there are others, more respected, that says what i said, or something close. Soon, i’ll have the portuguese version and then maybe i’ll get some reactions
