Out for some days | Fora por uns dias

I’ll be away for a couple of days to participate in the 2nd Journalist’s Convention in Guimarães. I was kindly invited to participate Saturday morning in a debate about how technology has changed journalism, so i’m antecipating a great time.

This will also be a chance to change the setting a bit, i really need it. I haven’t been producing as much as i should and maybe a change will do some good.  I’ll be networking live, which is also good, though i’m trying to be live from the event too, via Twitter. I’ll let you know.

I hope to return in full force next Monday.

Vou estar fora uns dias para participar na 2ª Convenção de Jornalistas em Guimarães. Fui gentilmente convidado para participar numa mesa redonda Sábado de manhã, dedicada a tecnologia e jornalismo, por isso já estou a antecipar um bom bocado.

Esta também é uma boa oportunidade para mudar de ares, que bem preciso. Não tenho produzido tanto como devia e talvez uma mudança venha a calhar. Vou estar a socializar ao vivo, o que também é bom, mas vou tentar estar também em directo do evento, via Twitter. Eu aviso.

Espero voltar em força próxima segunda-feira.

‘How to Write for the Web’: in Portuguese | Em Português

clique na imagem para fazer o download


I had already talked about the spanish edition, now here’s the portuguese version.

Já aqui tinha falado da edição em espanhol, fica agora a tradução para o português.

The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin has just published a Portuguese-language edition of the e-book How to Write for the Web, written by Colombian journalist Guillermo Franco and translated by Brazilian journalist Marcelo Soares.

How to Write for the Web is the second skills guide for journalists that the Knight Center has published. In December 2007, the Knight Center launched electronic Spanish and Portuguese editions of the e-book Journalism 2.0: How to Survive and Thrive, A digital literacy guide for the information age, written by U.S. journalist Mark Briggs.

The Spanish, Portuguese, and English editions of that book can also be downloaded in PDF format for free from the Knight Center’s website. It has been downloaded close to 17,000 times since its publication.

Is Twitter Journalism? | O Twitter é Jornalismo?

BreakingNewsOn Twitter

BreakingNewsOn Twitter

To put an end to all this annoyance (i’m getting sick of this too) i’ll finish this series with the latest most buzzing debate about new media.

Is Twitter Journalism?

The real issue: never got it right (me and those who argue about Twitter and journalism). Twitter is for mainstream media what blogs were some years ago: something they don’t understand but had to get on board. And this time they’re doing it quickly. But once again some people are asking the wrong question.

Twitter is a channel. Hundreds, thousands of channels. If someone shares information with his followers, thousands of users can access to it in a matter of minutes if it’s retweeted. It’s viral, word of mouth to the highest power. And since it’s mobile the source can be at the scene of the event. Examples: Hudson River Crash, Mumbai, China earthquakes. In a matter of minutes thousands knew about it first than news agencies or local media knew or could react, even half world away. So this is the nature of Twitter: a powerful broadcasting and crowdsourcing tool. Well played it can be used to get and deliver  information. Of course, just like in the offline world, there are hoaxes, but as far as i remember it’s part of the journalists’ job to verify information.Twitter gives the first info, to be developed by other channels later.

Fortunately, as it becomes more mainstream, there is more advice on how to use it for journalism. It’s easy, addictive and powerful. It is people driven, and fast. It also has the feature of being eclectic: on my few hundreds of followers i have people from 3 continents and with different ages, backgrounds and interests. One thing most have in common, they’re Twitter addicts.

Twitter is not journalism, but it is a hell of a tool to help in the process.

Para terminar toda esta irritação (eu também já estou a ficar farto disto) vou acabar esta série com  o mais recente debate aceso sobre os novos media.

Será o Twitter Jornalismo?

A verdadeira questão: nunca percebi (eu e os outros que questionam o Twitter e o Jornalismo). O Twitter é para os media tradicionais o que os blogs foram há uns anos: algo que não percebem mas com que vão ter que alinhar. E desta vez estão a fazê-lo rápido. Mas mais uma vez vez estão a fazer a pergunta errada.

O Twitter é um canal. Centenas, milhares de canais. Se alguém partilhar uma informação com os seus seguidores, outros tantos milhares podem ter acesso a ela no espaço de minutos se for reenviada. É viral, boca a boca à máxima potência. E como é móvel a  fonte pode estar no local do acontecimento. Exemplos: amaragem no rio Hudson, Bombaim, terremotos na China. No espaço de minutos milhares de pessoas souberam o que tinha acontecido, antes das agências ou media locais saberem ou poderem reagir, mesmo a meio mundo de distância. Essa é a natureza do Twitter: uma  poderosa ferramenta de divulgação e pesquisa dentro de uma comunidade. Bem usada pode servir para distribuir e recolher informação. Claro que existem embustes, como no mundo offline, mas segundo me lembro, faz parte do trabalho dos jornalistas verificar informação.

Felizmente, à medida que se torna cada vez mais de uso comum, há mais conselhos sobre como usá-lo em prol do jornalismo. É fácil. viciante e poderoso. É movido pelas pessoas, e rápido. Também é ecléctico: tenho algumas centenas de pessoas a seguir-me em 3 continentes, com idades, origens e interesses diversos. Uma coisa a maioria tem em comum: são viciados no Twitter.

O Twitter não é jornalismo, mas é uma excelente ferramenta para o processo.

Citizen Journalism | Jornalismo do Cidadão

https://i2.wp.com/www.nataliedee.com/123107/ugh-journalistic-integrity-is-BORING.jpg

The shift | A mudança

This one is going to be short and sweet. I have already witten a post about this, and much of the problems that applied earlier in the relationship between bloggers and journalists are easily transferred here, with a few more important details.

Citizen Journalism

The big question: can citizens be journalists? The short answer: yes. The difference is in a set of characteristics that separate the citizen journalism from the freelancer/hired/part time  journalist i defined in a previous post:

  • It’s casual, whoever practices the journalistic act can do it only once in a lifetime.
  • It is mainly spontaneous, not dependant of an incumbency or professional obligation. It can be provoked by opportunity, personal need or social responsibility.
  • It is disorganized/not sistematic – this can happen in more or less degree, specializing in a job implies the learning of a method, that the citizen journalist may or may not master.
  • It is related to the surrounding reality of the citizen journalist, wether it is in a geographical level, emotional, cultural, therefore there is a certain amount of partiality (but like we’ve seen before, impartiality doesn’t not objectively exist in traditional journalism).
  • It doesn’t follow the mainstream news agenda. Apart from calamities, terrorist attacks, or other high profile events, Citizen Journalism tends to reflect realities, subjects, or perspectives absent from the mainstream media coverage.
  • It can be done by people who have a greater specific knowledge about a given subject than a journalist (which happens frequently, one can’t just know about everything).
  • The purpose is not any sort of remuneration but simply the act of information. (this can change)

Still, many don’t believe that a citizen is capable of creating a journalistic piece. I could build a chair and not be a professional carpenter. And it could the most comfortable  reliable ass-sitting piece of furniture ever made, better than a pro would do, or  it could even be a wobbly one, good enough for the fireplace, that it would still be a chair. There is lots of of journalism that is good enough, for that: to burn. The point is, regular people can do it, with more or less skill. They won’t do it often, but i say their participation is important, and their input priceless.

This forced a whole new relationship between the once before isolated media and the passive, yet eager to participate audience. New forms of collaboration and new spaces where only the seasoned pros dwelled were created. Though sometimes it all looks like a joke to me – they reduce citizen journalism to candid camera – there are others who will gladly use citizen participation to create new contents otherwise impossible to make. The audience is shaping the agenda and the creation of contents in more or less subtle ways, sharing info, sending pictures, or just by suggesting new themes or funding stories. In the future, citizens will be actively shaping the journalistic activity in different manners:

-sending data, pictures, via Twitter or directly to the websites or mashups;

-organizing huge amounts of information that one journalist alone couldn’t fathom;

-proposing and/or funding stories;

-by being new distribution channels, sharing the news via social networking (this is a huge growing trend);

-by directly commenting, correcting, or updating the info, making the articles evolve and become more accurate;

-and many other things i’m not even imagining or remembering now, if you have any suggestions leave them in the comments;

Journalists will be organizing this flow of contribution / demand created by the audience (leaving this carefree attitude behind), who is no longer a mere holder of papers and remotes, but an active element of news creation and distribution. Does this makes a citizen a journalist? No, but more like an editor.

But back to the main issue, some argue that whatever a citizen may create it can hardly be considered as journalism, because journalism implies rules, certain objectives bla bla bla…we can also argue then that many journalism, by those standards, isn’t journalism at all.Not a good logic to apply here, nonetheless it is true.

This is not getting as short as i intended to so let me finish it sweet: Citizens can be Journalists (under the features i listed before). Now i’d just love to see some journalists become better citizens.

Este vai ser curto e meigo. Eu já escrevi um post sobre isto, e muitos dos problemas que se aplicaram antes à relação entre bloggers e jornalistas podem ser facilmente transferidas para aqui, com apenas mais uns pormenores importantes.

Jornalismo do Cidadão

A grande pergunta: podem os cidadãos ser jornalistas? A resposta curta: sim. A diferença está num conjunto de características que separam o jornalismo do cidadão do jornalista freelancer/contratado/part-time, que já listei num post anterior:

  • É casual, quem exerce o acto jornalístico pode fazê-lo apenas uma vez na vida.
  • É predominantemente espontâneo, não sujeito a encomenda ou obrigação profissional. Pode ser causado por uma questão de oportunidade, necessidade pessoal ou responsabilidade social.
  • É desorganizado/não sistematizado- aqui pode ser em maior ou menor grau, a especialização numa profissão implica a aprendizagem de um método, que o jornalista-cidadão  pode ou não dominar.
  • Está relacionado com a realidade próxima do jornalista-cidadão, seja a nivel geográfico, emocional, cultural, logo existe um certo grau de parcialidade (mas como já vimos, a imparcialidade não existe  objectivamente no jornalismo tradicional).
  • Está fora da agenda noticiosa tradicional. À excepção de calamidades, atentados, ou outros eventos de grande repercussão, o Jornalismo do Cidadão tem tendência a reflectir realidades, assuntos, ou perspectivas ausentes da cobertura mediática.
  • Pode ser feito por pessoas com mais conhecimento específico sobre um determinado assunto do que um jornalista (que é o que acontece muitas vezes, não se pode saber tudo).
  • O objectivo não é uma remuneração, mas apenas o acto de informar.(isto pode mudar)

Mesmo assim, muitos ainda não acreditam que um cidadão é capaz de criar uma peça jornalística. Eu podia fazer uma cadeira e não ser um carpinteiro de profissão. E até podia ser a mais confortável e estável peça de mobiliário para assentar o rabo jamais feita, melhor do que por um profissional, ou até podia ser uma toda torta, boa apenas para arder na fogueira, que ainda seria uma cadeira. Existe muito jornalismo que é tão bom como isso, para arder. A ideia é que pessoas normais podem fazê-lo, com maior ou menor capacidade. Não o farão muitas vezes, mas eu digo que a sua participação é importante, e o seu contributo valiosíssimo.

Isto impôs uma toda nova relação entre os antes isolados media e o passivo mas desejoso de participar público. Foram criados novas formas de colaboração e novos espaços apenas disponíveis antes para profissionais experientes. Apesar de às vezes me parecer uma enorme piada – eles reduzem o jornalismo do cidadão a uma espécie de “apanhados”– há outros que de bom grado usam a participação dos cidadãos para criar novos conteúdos que de outra forma seriam impossíveis de fazer. O público está a moldar a agenda e a criação de conteúdos de forma mais ou menos subtil, partilhando informação, enviando imagens, ou apenas sugerindo novos temas ou financiando reportagens. No futuro, os cidadãos irão activamente moldar a actividade jornalística de várias formas:

-enviando dados, imagens, via Twitter ou directamente para os sites ou mashups;

-organizando enormes quantidades de informação que um só jornalista não conseguiria tratar;

-propondo e/ou financiando reportagens;

-sendo mais um canal de distribuição, partilhando as ntícias via redes sociais (esta é uma tendência em crescimento);

-comentando, corrigindo ou actualizando a informação directamente, fazendo evoluir os artigos e a torná-los mais correctos;

-e muitas outras coisas que nem imagino ou me lembro agora,se tiverem sugestões deixem nos comentários;

Os jornalistas irão organizar este fluxo de contributos/procura criados pelos utilizadores, (deixando esta ideia despreocupada para trás) que não são mais apenas  suportes de jornais e comandos de televisão, mas um elemento activo na criação e distribuição de notícias. Isto faz deles jornalistas? Não, talvez mais editores.

Mas de volta à questão principal, alguns podem dizer que o que um cidadão cria dificilmente pode ser considerado como jornalismo, porque isso implica regras, certos objectivos, blá blá… também posso argumentar que muito jornalismo, por esses padrões, também não pode ser considerado como tal. Não é uma boa lógica para se aplicar aqui, todavia é verdade.

Isto não está a ficar tão curto como queria, por isso vou terminar meigo: os Cidadãos podem fazer de Jornalistas (dentro das características listadas antes). Agora adorava ver alguns jornalistas ser melhores cidadãos.

By Paul Bradshaw

From journalistic pariah to savior of the news industry, blogs have undergone an enormous transformation in recent years. As a journalist and a blogger, I was curious to see how this transformation from blogophobia to blogophilia was affecting journalism. Was the hype surrounding the potential of blogs to transform our craft being realized—or were journalists simply treating their blogs as another “channel” into which to plough content?

Personal News

In a world where customisation is key (our clothes, our cars, our TV channels…), why can’t we customise our newspapers?  In fact we can, Mary Lou Fulton explains.  Fulton is Vice President of Audience Development at The Bakersfield Californian, and has discovered a Swiss-German innovation called Personal News, collaboration between SwissPost and Syntops GmbH.

Personal News is currently in its pilot stage, and available in a limited area in Switzerland.  However the idea is this; after registering online you select up to seven newspaper sections that interest you (at the moment, available publications include The Washington Post and Austria’s The Standard).  After that, the relevant newspapers send their PDFs to Syntops, who assimilate the PDF into personalised publications and pass them on to Swiss Post, who has them on your doorstep by 11am.  You can even change your newspaper selection up to 7pm the previous night.

  • “We Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet”: Jack Driscoll on Community Journalism, Henry Jenkins

(Part One) (Part Two)

Driscoll recently published a book, Couch Potatoes Sprout: The Rise of Online Community Journalism, which shares some of his experiences and offers sage advice about how and why community journalism may become an important part of the contemporary newscape. What I love about the book is its emphasis on journalism as a practice and a process rather than simply a product, since it is clear that working on these publications is empowering to those who become involved, changing the ways they think about themselves and their communities.

I was lucky enough to get a chance to pick Jack’s brain about community journalism and to be able to share his perspectives with you here. As you read this, you have to picture this ruddy faced man with gray hair, a sparkle in his eye, and a broad toothy smile. Jack represents what was best about the old style journalism and he represents a bridge to what may be most vital about the future of civic media.

Why most of the web is junk
The truth is that the vast majority of the web contains poor quality content. Even for those sites that do have great content, often they are difficult to find (via a search engine) and the user experience, once you visit it, is so poor, you simply wish to leave.

Despite nearly 15 years of web development, most of us still waste dozens of hours a month trawling the web, weeding out sites that either have irrelevant content to our search query or where the user experience is just too frustrating.

Unfortunately – similar to weeding – those sites don’t really go away. A search engine query the next day can bring up the same poor results and the process starts all over again.

That myth is essentially that every reader of a publication – not just buyer but alleged reader – is exposed to every ad. So every advertiser is charged for every reader of every ad. Great while it lasted, eh?

But the internet punctured that illusion because on the web, advertisers pay only for the ads a reader sees (and, in many cases, clicks on). So online, a paper or magazine can no longer charge every advertiser for every reader. This has exposed the essential inefficiency of print advertising (like TV advertising that is ignored or skipped). But it shows the inherent efficiency of online advertising.

Newspaper companies need to turn the tide and turn it fast if they want to stay in business at all. It’s time to go on the offensive and renovate their businesses around the changing needs and demands of their customers. The difficulty lies in that much of their future may not involve paper, and the industry is having a hard time changing its name.

If they don’t, they will become what the railroad industry became. The railroads could have survived as major players in the business of transporting people, had they believed they were in the transportation business, not the train business. They would have invested in cars, buses and airplanes. But they didn’t, and while there remains a railroad industry today, it’s much smaller and less significant than it was.

The fully loaded cost of a great reporter doing great work, then, falls somewhere in the $180,000 range:

$130,000 salary and benefits
$4,800 a year in subscriptions and other information sources
$2,500 a month in travel
$1,250 a month in legal and insurance coverage
$179,800 total, and that’s before the cost of IT, telecom and office space


I’m not (that) interested (today) in trying to figure out what revenue, then, will support major metro newspapers online.  When a major city loses its last print edition, it will be because it has already been replaced, in terms of reporting, advertising, commentary, and yes, journalism, by (mostly) smaller organizations.

And by definition, I expect a newspaper.com in a no-print city to look and feel infinitely different than it does now, to be a distributed news service, the sum of dozens of tiny parts, a portal to a wide variety of platforms where bits of news pushed out and pulled in.

(Right, so again, these are all the things I’m not going to talk about today. Right. Sure.)

My question, then, is how to support a small, agile, online-only news organization.

In Roanoke, the journalists grouped the pressure points into three categories: How to use Facebook and MySpace as a reporting tool, how to use the sites as a promotional tool and finally, how to balance your personal and professional images.

As a reporting tool, it’s easy to argue that Facebook, MySpace and Twitter instantly connect journalists to stories that in the past would have taken days or weeks to surface. Last year, the Orlando Sentinel discovered a Facebook group devoted to the lack of water at the University of Central Florida’s brand new football stadium. The group provided immediate access to dozens of sources who’d experienced firsthand the opening game in 95-degree heat.

90% of startups fail.

It’s kind of crazy that entrepreneurs think that their vision and their idea is the “right” one.  What qualifies them to know what will work?  Why don’t digital and tech entrepreneurs test their ideas before they waste money and countless hours building a product that’s not needed?  I call this the “me too” syndrome that is so prevalent on the west coast <cough> Silicon Valley…

TweetNews keeps an eye on Yahoo News and compares its headlines with which news stories are culling links on Twitter updates. A story’s popularity amongst the tweeting masses will push it up farther on TweetNews. There’s no landing page full of links, though, just search functionality. You can see the Twitter updates each result is pulling from in a drop-down box, and the absolutely minimal site loads seriously fast.

Pew Research Center

I bet most of that “online” news is really the work of existing newspapers (newsbrands) who operate online. That’s actually good news. It means that collectively, newspapers are MORE popular than television as a source for news.

As I’ve already said, it’s time to monetize it.

While a great deal of what I write here is underinformed speculation, this piece is unusually speculative and underinformed. It’s possible that I’m flat out wrong about the idea I’m developing here. I’m putting it forward with the hopes that folks will react with examples and data that help prove or disprove this theory. Being told that I’m unambigiously wrong with good data demonstrating my error would be very helpful. Simply being told I’m wrong – less helpful.

You’ve heard about the housing bubble. And the dot-com bubble. I’m here to tell you about The Journalism Bubble.

Anybody who’s paying attention to the state of journalism in the US is aware of the financial crisis facing the news industry. And there’s wide agreement on the cause of the crisis: advertising revenue for print and broadcast is declining, and advertising revenue for internet offerings is not rising fast enough to make up the difference.

That’s true.

It’s also a completely inadequate explanation for the waves of layoffs, bankruptcies, and outright closures of news organizations.

There is a journalism bubble. And the bubble has burst.

Tribune Co. and the New York Daily News* are looking at closing their foreign bureaus and outsourcing international coverage, The Wall Street Journal says. The beneficiaries would be the Washington Post and a Boston-based startup called GlobalPost. Under the arrangement being discussed by Tribune Co. and the Washington Post, Tribune would contract with the Post for international stories to be delivered to its portfolio of newspapers and would close dozens of foreign offices, saving the bankrupt company millions each year. There’s no word on how much of that coverage would be unique to Tribune, but that’s presumably an issue in the talks. The two companies have long had an alliance via a joint news service.

Adopt new technologies and workflows to make news production more efficient. Many traditional news organizations have redundant production processes for their traditional (print or broadcast) product and the Web. These must be consolidated.

Distribute professionally created content through as many channels as possible. Stories must go out in print, on the air, online, via mobile technology — and yes, on the Kindle or another “iTunes for news.” When appropriate, news organizations could share the cost of content creation with other news organizations. The Miami Herald and Poynter’s St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, for instance, already collaborate to pay for coverage of the Florida state capital.


Williams highlighted the need to find a way to “make journalism happen where it’s needed, when it’s needed, and then redeploy elsewhere when things change.”  Poynter writer Amy Gahran elaborated on the idea of a “cadre of general assignment reporters, ready to work on whatever needed doing.” It is essentially a development of the idea of stringers and freelancers, but she believes it could be an interesting complement to traditional news outlets, and takes it a step further, envisaging a situation where various kinds of organisations, not just news, could purchase reporting capacity.

If newspapers were to die, Pratt believes that we would lose all objectivity – on the Internet, he says ‘it seems that reality can be created and spun’.  ‘Hysterical’ predictions about print’s imminent demise to him signal the exact reason that we need it to stay, to present facts as facts and for the ‘check and balance that news organisations strive to provide’.

This page is intended to be a collaborative style guide for online sub-editors, including useful tips.

Some journalism academics may be even more scared of new technology and more resistant to change than the worst print “dinosaurs” working in media today. But Web 2.0 has made getting online so simple that there are no more excuses for being disconnected. While some reporters see journalism education as a potential refuge from the rapid pace of change in the 21st century digital newsroom, journalism schools should in fact be among the first places to adapt to new technology if they’re to train the journalists of tomorrow and remain relevant today.

I have been working to integrate blogs and other social media into my teaching, but traditional academia’s inherent resistance to educational experimentation — as well as fears around defamation litigation, autonomous student publication, and public relations fallout — can make embracing the journalism of the digital age even more difficult in the classroom than in the newsroom.

Fit for purpose

Put all those things together and the only viable strategy for getting video in your newsroom now is point-and-shoot. It’s responsive, cheap and easy to implement and the kind of video produced – short clip content, illustrative video and vignettes of action – is best suited to the embedded style we see on news sites.

That doesn’t mean I’m ditching the idea that a quality video strategy has lost.  It isn’t a betamax Vs. VHS type thing. Those that invested in the training and development of that strategy will always get good results from it.  Those who just bought lots of kit and left the newsroom to it will have already put the camera in a cupboard.

News article about the live coverage of a political congress using Twitter, by Parlamento Global’s journalists.

Artigo que fala da cobertura do congresso do CDS, através do Twitter pelos jornalistas do Parlamento Global.

As novas tecnologias tomaram conta da política e a Internet tornou-se um veículo para transmitir mensagens e não só. O 23º congresso do CDS, nas Caldas da Rainha, foi um bom exemplo disso. Além de ser transmitido ao minuto através do site Parlamento Global, foram vários os presentes que partilharam com os seus «seguidores» no twitter tudo o que estava a acontecer.
