Why do we tell stories?

To further understand how we must change the way we produce and present our narratives for digital distribution (I’ve written a first article about this subject here), I wanted to learn why we, as humans, need stories and storytelling. To address this subject I was fortunate enough to find Brian Boyd’s book “On the Origin … Continue reading

Narratives for digital distribution

EDIT: An edited version of this article was published on Nieman Storyboard website becoming the site’s most read article in 2011.

Digital storytelling made easy!

On my last article I’ve written about interactive infographics on tablets and the problem facing newsrooms around the world.

Where are all the interactive journalists?

In the beginning there was the Internet. And that’s how journalism turned digital. Newsrooms where formed to ‘feed’ this new beast. Later on, these new team where integrated with the print team (or should have been). Thus appeared the online journalist. Nowadays, with the push mobile has given publishers around the world, a new challenge … Continue reading

Sharing content with a value

Just a couple of days ago I was reading Cameron Koczon great article Orbital Content. I really enjoy his view of users/readers being in the center of orbital content and the idea of applications (whatever form and platform) being the gravitational force to drive that flowing content onto the user/reader. I was then even more … Continue reading
