Presentation: Digital First Journos — How we think and work
By Gil Asakawa
Steve Buttry is the Director of Community Engagement and Social Media at Digital First Media, the company that operates both MediaNews Group and Journal Register chains of newspapers (full disclosure: I used to work for The Denver Post, MNG’s flagship paper, and MediaNews Group’s corporate interactive group). He’s giving four workshops at Northern Kentucky University and here’s one of them, about what it means to be a “digital first” journalist of today. He shared it online via Slideshare –thinking very digital first, I’d say. You can check out his other presentations at Slideshare as well.
I’d like to hear Buttry go through this deck sometime, because he’s making great points that apply not only to students, but mid-career journalists. I’ve forwarded this to my students at the CU Independent, because they need to embrace this way of thinking, and this information will help them get jobs and aim their careers for the future of media.
