After a busy week of deadlines, I’m using the weekend to catch up on some reading:
- Comedy is easy. Audio is hard. Cyndy Green keeps sound in synch by giving good advice on which microphones are best.
- Mindy McAdams provides a thought-provoking discussion about the differences between traditional media “audiences” and on-line “communities.” Be sure to read the comments.
- Multimedia means just that: video, text, data all working together. Here’s a great example of putting it all together. (via Multimedia Shooter)
- What’s an asset we all need to develop? Speed, says Adam Tinworth. Some of us aren’t reacting fast enough to provide news for the digital audience.
And of course, I’m posting that link four days later. Need to get faster.
Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before.
