Entrevista em crowdsourcing | Crowdsourcing an interview – Dave Cohn

Heidi Miller of the Knight News Challenge recently interviewed past Knight News Challenge winner, David Cohn, to explore how he succeeded in getting funding for his great idea for digital communication innovation.

Real winners with really great ideas – David Cohn interview, founder of Spot.us

September 11, 2008 www.newschallenge.org

Acabou o prazo para colocarem as vossas questões ao Dave Cohn. A todos os que participaram, obrigado. Durante a próxima semana irei partilhar  a versão final antes de falar com o Dave. Até lá fiquem com esta entrevista que o Knight News Challenge lhe fez.

The deadline for putting your questions to Dave Cohn is over. To all of you who came forward and participated, thank you. During next week i’ll share with you the final version before talking to Dave. Until then listen to this interview that he gave to the Knight News Challenge website.

What advice would you give to others with a great idea they want funded?

The advice I would give is not to hold your idea and try and treat it like a secret. Make your idea public. Start writing about it. Talk to other people about it. A lot of people that I give this advice to of just being open with your idea have a fear that someone else is going to steal it. That won’t happen. So the best thing you can do is just talk about what you’re doing.

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?

Now here are the Knight News Challenge 2008’s winners. There’s 16 of them and they’re splitting 5,5 million dollars to develop their digital communicação innovative projects. Among them, some familiar faces: Ryan Sholin, that won with his ReportingOn, and (Digi)Dave Cohn, that presented a project i find quite interesting.

The winners list can be seen here.

So what’s next? Spot Us will be a nonprofit to test a new business model – community funded journalism.

What I’m going to build will be a marketplace for journalism. News organizations (old or new media) can use the space to support their most enterprise projects. Community and civic organizations can come together, take a stand and let the media know what is being under-reported. Independent journalists can get paid to do what they do best – report on local stories, all while building up their portfolio.

My Next Assignment, Hopefully A Lifelong Contribution to Journalism ,David Cohn
