McCormick Foundation New Media Women Entrepreneurs What does a great college newspaper site look like? :: 10,000 Wo The best college newspaper websites have a combination of integrated print stories, online only features, great site design, technical skill and most importantly the incorporation of unique multimedia elements. Here are some great examples from around the US: InsideVandy, Vanderbilt University What it lacks in cohesive organization, InsideVandy makes up for in its massive amounts of content. The University Daily Kansan, University of Kansas Professional design is only the backbone of the journalistic prowess happening at The Kansan.

“Internet civilisé” : la timeline La semaine passée, notre éminent confrère Marc Rees se fendait d’une petite anthologie de la notion, tant chérie par Nicolas Sarkozy, de “l’Internet civilisé” (Avec l’Internet civilisé, l’UMP s’échine). Las : à l’exception d’une photographie de fossiles préhistoriques, l’article se bornait à enfiler des dates, des noms, et des citations, en mode texte. Il existe pourtant de nombreux outils de “timeline” (frise chronologique, en bon français), créés précisément pour visualiser des informations, dans le temps, mais également d’y associer des images, de les mettre en contexte… Ceux qui voudraient garder la main sur leurs données installent Timeline sur leur serveur, ou encore TimelineSetter que Propublica vient de rendre public. Une timeline avec des images, c’est encore mieux. PCInpact a finalement embeddé ladite timeline. J’aurais bien voulu pouvoir rajouter de la musique à cette timeline, mais Dipity ne le propose pas (encore).

Innovations In News Capital Weather | Thunderstorm threat and weekend weather Daily Gripe | Report D.C. issues with our SeeClickFix map Reliable Source | Roxanne Roberts & Amy Argetsinger The gut-wrenching images that emerged after a tornado struck Joplin, Mo. this week were made even more profound by digital and online storytelling techniques. This interactive, 360-degree panoramic image shows the damage from the ground level. A Joplin, Mo. neighborhood before and after the tornado . More great work from the WP’s award-winning videojournalist Whitney Shefte. The Wanda Alston House in northeast Washington is a transitional housing space for homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) youth. We all know I love big data, so OECD’s visualization of their Better Life Index just made my morning. We’ve put together this infographic that compares the United States’ education spend and performance versus eleven countries. Red points are tourists, Blue are locals, yellow are unknown.

Local News in a Digital Age Whether in a tech-savvy metropolis or a city where the town square is still the communication hub, local news matters deeply to the lives of residents. Across three disparate metro areas in the U.S., nearly nine-in-ten residents follow local news closely—and about half do so very closely, according to a new, in-depth Pew Research Center study, conducted in association with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. About two-thirds of the residents in each city discuss local news in person a few times a week or more. Studying the ways that local news flows in a city’s population requires more than one tool in the social scientist’s tool kit. Perhaps the most obvious way that local news climates differ across U.S. cities is in terms of volume and choice, the former of which may well have an impact on the latter. More striking, only a quarter (23%) of Denver residents often get local news from their main daily paper, compared with 40% of Sioux City residents and 36% of Macon residents.

basic gear for multimedia journalists You’d think everyone would know this by now, for cryin’ out loud! But I see posts to Listservs and discussion forums from people who still haven’t figured it out (and who apparently don’t know how to do a Google search!). Audio hardware: Audio recorder: Olympus WS-300M, or DS-2 (or the discontinued WS-200S) — these are less than $100 each.Microphone: Electro-Voice 635 A, A/B or N/DB (search B&H for these) — about $100.Microphone (cheaper): Nady SP-5 or SP-4C (search Musician’s Friend for these) — $10 to $20 each.You’re going to need a very specific cable to connect a proper microphone to an audio recorder — a female XLR to male mini, 3 to 4 feet long for face-to-face interviews (about $8). Cameras: I covered point-and-shoots in an earlier blog post here. Video gear: Someone else will have to fill your ear with the looong debate about video cameras. Phone and laptop/notebook computer: These are obvious, and there are too many models to discuss. Software: As for Flash — Flash is NOT BASIC.
