O que se diz do JEECamp? Depois de uma curta análise por aqui, falámos com Paul Bradshaw,que nos deu as suas impressões sobre o evento que organizou, e recolhemos algumas das ideias expostas em alguns blogs de quem participou.

What is the word on JEECamp? After a short analysis from our side, we’ve talked with Paul Bradshaw, who gave his impressions on how it went, and we gathered a few ideas, taken from the blogs of some parcipants.


Entrevista com Paul Bradshaw | Paul Bradshaw interview

Did JEECamp lived up to your expectations?

Mostly, yes. People seemed to find it very useful, contacts were made, and a lot of exchange of ideas and experience. I was disappointed we didn’t get a broader representation from mainstream media, but on the flip side surprised at how many entrepreneurs we got. I hear there’s nothing like this in America either so I’m pleased we’re providing an alternative platform for this cottage industry. I wish I’d had a chance to enjoy it more myself but spent a lot of time making sure it and coverage was running smoothly.

What is the main conclusion you get out of it?

That there is a need for JEEcamp. There are similar events aimed at the corporate MSM but nothing for indie journo startups. That there is a cottage industry we don’t often hear about, and that that industry has the potential to creep up on the larger news organizations. That even the most cutting edge people at mainstream news orgs are behind the people launching startups.

There were no easy answers, and there were raised new tough questions too. How much an event like this was needed to put in touch all of these different people and their ideas?

Enormously. For the reasons mentioned above.

Will the questions in next JEECamp be the same, or the challenges will be different? Are things moving that fast?

I think it will be very different. Things are moving very fast indeed – if we’d done this last year the questions would have been around video and blogging. This year Twitter and mobile obviously dominated. Next year – who knows? I’m considering making it about enterprise and experimentation so that a broader audience attends.

When can we expect another JEECamp?

I’m hoping to do one in January 2009, but I’d also like to see if anyone wants to do a US JEEcamp or Europe JEEcamp before then.


JEECamp Digest

JEECamp was a bit of a mixed bag, to be honest, but that’s not a criticism and even the disapointing stuff was illuminating in its own way. If I took away one thing it was this. If, when it comes to awareness of how online stuff is going to affect their industry, there are two sorts of journalists, those who get it and those who, for whatever reason, are unable to get it, then the distance between these two is so great that the definition of “journalist” is pretty meaningless.”

Hubdub is a game,Pete Ashton’s Blog


“Pour se lancer, les journalistes doivent regarder leur carnet d’adresse comme une liste d’annonceurs potentiels. Eux seuls ont les moyens d’amener et de faire fructifier ces micro-budgets sur le web.

JEEcamp: La monétisation est un sport de combat, Nicolas Kayser-Bril


“The very last point from JEEcamp was also VERY relevant:

“Now is the best time to be a journalist. The demand is for journalists who WANT to tell a story. All of the contacts, features, etc, are in place to become a great journalist. This is THE time to be a journalist. It doesnt get much better than this.”

Reflections on JEEcamp , Azeem Ahmad

“Entering the afternoon session at JEECamp, delegates have been invited to pitch their ‘journalism enterprise’ ideas to the floor.

Kyle McRae, who left photo agency Scoopt, which he founded, only a week ago, raised the idea of Qotz (working title), a community site, where online articles and content will be submitted and filtered on the basis of ‘pull quotes’.”


JEEcamp: pitch from Kyle McRae, ex-Scoopt , Laura Oliver


“Relying on one revenue stream isn’t enough: 400,000 pages impressions over three months to MFW generated a paltry $180. Google is not the piece of advertising kit needed by local sites, Waghorn said.”

JEEcamp: online revenue models – the Waghorn way, Laura Oliver


“And something really stuck out. The idea of a reporter as a brand, and of creating a community around oneself as a reporter. This isn’t original thinking by any means, I’m sure, but certainly struck home with me. Particularly with the idea of the news gathering process being transparent to improve readers’ access to; and views of; the journalists they read. “

Response from JEECamp (1),Tom Scotney


“Online journalism is all about making links, but the online editors at Jeecamp say their journalists find it difficult to visit other sites, make comments or connect with other communities. Everyone has a Facebook page now but journalists are curiously reluctant to socially network with their news. This might be because journalists still think in terms of individual blogs rather than online networks.”

” The event saw a number of leading journalists, bloggers, commentators and innovators in attendance, discussing the challenges facing today’s new media publishers, particularly in light of digital media replacing the role of conventional print publications.”

“The day ended with a panel discussion of some of the emerging issues. As I looked out at the people gathered it occurred to me that in ten years time one half would probably have bought out the other half.

The question is, which half will be which?”

JEECamp: destaques | highlights



Terminou o JEECamp. Tempo agora para uma pequena revisão.

Foram muitas as ideias que saíram deste encontro, por isso vamos destacar aqui algumas. Para a semana vamos dar mais informação e algumas das conclusões a que chegaram.

Para ver a transcrição possível do que se falou em Birmingham, visitem a página da Live Coverage.

JEECamp is over. Time now for a quick overview.

There were many the ideas that came out of this meeting, so we’ll just highlight a few. Next week we’ll provide more info and some of the conclusions they got.

Read the possible transcription of what was discussed at Birmingham at the Live Coverage page.


Joanna Geary asks Rick how many visitors to his site are from the area it represents
75-80% are local people
however, there is an international presence, but local people still want local news


[Comment From Robert Andrews]
any threat from fans writing their own coverage (or merely forum chat, which can also break news)… any threat from formal fan efforts like sportingo?
I don’t see it as a threat – the two are complementary – we can work side by side. Clearly someone has to go to press conferences, etc, and then bring out the comment and quotes, for sportingo, etc to discuss.


[Comment From Graham Holliday]
Isn’t it a little dangerous for journalists to be using facebook for story sources? Wouldn’t be *too* difficult to track a source by digging into a journos friends on facebook, no? Depending on how bright the journalist is, of course
Communities- journalists need computer skills training and to get into the blogging mindset, they don’t know how to utilise the tools they have.


[Comment From Alex Gamela]
@communities – journalists have a kind of “i know it all” attitude, that must be left behind


Communities- Alex- the group agrees, they like that fact that bloggers are a ‘human face’ that occasionally make mistakes, an attitude which journalists need to adopt.



Communities- Too much of a reaction to a blog post on a contentious issue can scare journalists off, as they are used to having the barrier of the newspaper to hide behind.



Communities- Re: crowdsourcing- has an interactive traffic map where people can put any traffic problems on the map, using google maps, which has had a huge response. Using twitter to get information on ongoing stories, can send in questions to interviewees, this is working well. Should also be careful not to use it all the time though.


[Comment From Alex Gamela]
@ONM – but there are a lot of breaking news services that redirect people to tv or to more quicker news organizations. how can newspapers compete with that?


@ Alex, ONM – start with twitter, start with text version of News. getting reports regularly, more expansive text written story, journalist with digital camera – pictures, by 1, more stood up story with images and quotes. That story can then be taken as a basis for print publication next morning. On website draw more bloggers, flickr photos, video on youtube, all brought together. Blog comments, own blog etc. Then more in depth piece.

@ Alex – dont neccessarily need to break the news to benefit from it. If journalist is out there and have got twitter on phone, they can at least do something small there and then.

[Comment From Alex Gamela]
is the future of digital journalism a matter of technology or does it take also a whole new attitude towards the practice?

ONM – @Alex, no Tom doesnt think it needs any change, key principles are the same, BUT not just about reporting also networking. Its now not enough just to be a reporter. You have to be your own advertising team.
Craig – Good journalist will always be read. But need to be aware of the technology, awareness of how its being published. If you are missing out on conversation, someone else is. Old skill- being able to talk to people.

Panel Discussion- what is the future of journalism?

Changes in distribution, find new ways of distribution

Mobile, broadband technology etc just makes people use what was always there more often.

Traditional media have no strategy for utilising mobile phones

“newspapers arent dying – we’re committing suicide”

the way journalists tell stories is changing, we can get more people to tell their stories to us. people are tired of journalists being called – the voice of the people – they are merely A voice IN the field.

News Organisations simply think of ways to get UGC for free, when they really should be thinking about how to become part of a ‘sharing’ relationship.

Young people with good technical skills are being put into positions where they have journalistic skills – but not the power or the experience.

“Its the same as putting kids in a car park and then expecting them to learn how to drive”

Journalists are in a BUSINESS – unless money comes in, then it cant go out. It doesnt mean that they should allow themselves to be ‘gutted’ by big media companies – they have to be part of making that business work.

Now is the best time to be a journalist. The demand is for journalists who WANT to tell a story. all the contacts, features, etc are in place to become a great journalist. This is THE time to be a journalist. It doesnt get much better than this.

With all the news technologies coming out, there’s a danger that they wont be accepted for what they are, and journalists lose focus of what journalism is. There are no barriers to entering journalism.

JEECamp @ Birmingham



Paul Bradshaw do OnlineJournalismBlog e do JournalismEnterprise está a organizar uma unconference que decorre esta sexta feira, 14 de Março, no The Bond em Birmingham, Inglaterra. Em discussão vão estar modelos de negócio, desenvolvimento de audiências, financiamento, questões legais como a propriedade intelectual online, e modelos noticiosos para a web.

Infelizmente, desta vez não vou, mas para a próxima estou lá. Por aqui vamos ficar atentos aos resultados deste evento.

Paul Bradshaw deu mais algumas dicas sobre o JEECamp.

Online Journalism Blog and JournalismEnterprise‘s Paul Bradshaw is promoting an unconference that willhappen this Friday, at The Bond in Birmingham, UK. On the table will be the business models, audience development, funding, legal issues like Intellectual Property Rights online, and news models for the web.

Unfortunaly i won’t be attending this time, but the next i’ll be there. Around here we’ll be taking a close look to the developments and results of this event.

Paul Bradshaw provided me with a few more tips about JEECamp. (go to english version)

Apresentado como unconference, este encontro pretende ser uma oportunidade informal para uma troca de ideias sobre o jornalismo nos nossos dias, e para o futuro. Paul Bradshaw , organizador do evento, explica-nos o que é o JEECamp: “É uma oportunidade para um grupo diverso de pessoas se juntar para falar sobre o que funciona no jornalismo online, como é que jornalistas e editores podem ganhar a vida com o jornalismo na era da informação gratuita, que desafios existem, e o que é que aprendemos até agora.” E quem é que participa? “Os participantes podem ter lançado o seu próprio projecto de jornalismo- ou trabalhado num pertencente a uma organização mainstream. Ou podem apenas ter muitas boas ideias ou conhecimentos sobre o assunto.”

Apesar de se realizar em Birmingham, quem quiser pode seguir o evento, através do site, onde também podem deixar as vossas questões. “Eu também gostaria se pudéssemos ter algumas contribuições das pessoas que estão a seguir o evento ao vivo online.”

As expectativas de Paul Bradshaw são “dependendo da altura, terrivelmente optimistas, paranóicas, neuróticas e idealistas. No conjunto creio que isto vai ser uma oportunidade excitante para algumas pessoas se juntarem, o que de outra forma não teriam essa oportunidade. É um fórum para muitas boas ideias, e algumas ideias espertalhonas. Acho que temos algumas das mentes mais criativas, inovadoras e bem informadas do jornalismo online assim como algumas pessoas como uma bela experiência em diversas áreas.”

E depois, o que acontece? “Depois vamos todos para o pub.”

Aqui no Lago vamos seguir com especial atenção este encontro. Pelo menos até eles irem todos para os copos.
