These would have come earlier, but I’ve been struggling to get the video below on the blog. Somethings don’t come easy to me.
- Multimedia applications I can’t live without!. A great guide to multimedia creation software, as MultimediaShooter.
- The Fourth Screen & the Seventh Mass Media…. When I first saw details on the coming iPhone (I want one), I thought it would make a great tool for journalists (citizen or otherwise). Sion Touhig takes it a step forward and discusses it as another platform media is going to have to play to. The new media age gets more and more interesting and complex.
- Readers Comment on BackFence Downsizing. Lots of comments on the layoffs and cuts at Backfence, and Local Onliner has compiled some of the most cogent.
- Newspaper ownership is no longer so important. Roy Greenslade, rather persuasively, says the current U.S. debate over newspaper ownership (local vs. chain) is the wrong debate.
- Podcast: Photojournalist Mark M. Hancock interview. Bryan Murley did a little work on his holiday: a 20-minute interview with Beaumont, TX photojournalist Mark Hancock. I’ve downloaded the MP3 to listen to on tomorrow morning’s commute, but even without hearing it I can recommend it: Mark is one of the leading bloggers on photojournalism; Bryan is an avid investigator of what’s happening with journalism.
- Video survival guide. New-to-me blogger Chuck Fadely has a great, tightly-written post on how to shoot effective video, aimed at all those newspaper folk being handed video cameras. Via Howard Owens.
