  • Calls on the President to actually USE Twitter (@marshallk ) – Maybe you should try it sometime, Mr. Obama. And while you’re at it, you should ask someone to brief you on the movement for distributed social networking standards. A speaking gig in China would have been a great opportunity to sing the praises of decentralized, standards-based, interoperable, free-market competition in communication technologies. That’s the next part of the Twitter story
  • How Social Media is Taking the News Local – Early last year, journalists Cory Bergman and his wife, Kate, started a Seattle-area neighborhood network of news blogs called Next Door Media, which won the Online News Association’s first Community Collaboration award in 2009.Cory Bergman said in an e-mail interview that about 80% of their stories come from their neighbors and what they post in the blogs’ forums, comments, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. Experienced journalists who live in the neighborhood cover stories they find via those methods, using traditional journalism skills to gather and confirm information. When the stories are posted to the blogs, a hat tip is given to the user who originated the idea.
  • Excellente synthèse du débat Murdoch-Google et de la couverture Twitter de la tuerie de Ft. Hood – In this week’s edition, I look at recent comments by News Corp. honcho Rupert Murdoch about taking his content out of Google searches, and how many people reacted to it.

And Salon CEO Richard Gingras talks about how his site will be funding investigative journalism with soft-news features.
  • A Microformat with Major Implications for The Newsroom – Imagine this: you visit one of your favorite news sites and the homepage displays a notification that an article you read yesterday has been updated with new information, and a story you read last week has been corrected. The notification enables you to click on a link and read the correction, or to be taken to the updated story.

Voici quelques articles dont la pertinence/l’intérêt m’ont marqué au cours des derniers jours. Faites-en bon usage ! 🙂

  • Teaching Twitter at J-school – Editors Weblog – A new course offering from DePaul University in Chicago will teach journalism students how Twitter can be used in the newsroom. The class’s objective will be to instruct future journalists how to sift through all the information that is available through social media sites like Twitter, specifically as it relates to uncovering breaking news and verifying the authenticity of amateur sources.
  • Nouvelle tendance lourde: ce qui est Good enough! (pas mal) – @Transnets – “Ne croyez pas au mythe de la qualité!” hurle Clay Shirky depuis son fauteuil de prof de new media à NYU. Les entreprises qui misent là-dessus se gourent. On sait depuis Clayton Christensen que les technologies perturbatrices commencent toujours par s’imposer alors qu’elles ont moins de qualité que celles qui dominent et que les pros y trouvent une bonne raison de les dédaigner.
    Premier exemple: les caméras Flip à deux sous (oui, je sais les prix réels sur Amazon oscillent entre 90 et 180 dollars. Vous allez pas ergoter quand même). En deux ans elles sont parvenues à occuper 17% du marché américain des camcorders (aidez-moi donc si vous avez une traduction).

    Wired remarque au passage qu’en temps de crise c’est tant mieux.
    Second exemple: les MP3. Le son est moins bon que sur un CD mais on peut en gaver nos iPods et les faire circuler sur l’internet. C’est plus commode, donc… Good enough.

And if there’s anything that demonstrates how far we’ve come from the 30-second TV spot, it’s augmented reality.
  • Murdoch son: BBC threatens independent journalism – « In this all-media marketplace, the expansion of state-sponsored journalism is a threat to the plurality and independence of news provision, which are so important for our democracy, » Murdoch said.James Murdoch, the 36-year-old executive in charge of News Corp.’s businesses in Europe and Asia, spoke late Friday at the Edinburgh International Television Festival — 20 years after his father delivered a keynote speech at the same event
  • Forrester : les +35 ans se mettent aux réseaux communautaires (via @narvic) – Le cabinet d’analyse Forrester Research vient de publier une nouvelle étude sur les réseaux communautaires menée au mois de mai dernier auprès de 4455 participants aux Etats-Unis âgés entre 18 et 88 ans. Selon l’analyste Sean Corcoran « la plupart de la croissance au sein des réseaux sociaux provient désormais des personnes âgées de plus de 34 ans ».En effet, au travers de cette étude, il apparaît que la participation des +34 ans aurait progressé de plus de 60% et plus de la moitié des personnes interrogées entre 34 et 44 ans se sont inscrites à un réseau communautaire.
  • Mininova ordered to purge all links to copyrighted files – (via @ADNz ) – Fresh off a set of legal wins against The Pirate Bay, the music and movie industries have just scored another court victory against the massive BitTorrent search engine Mininova.

  • Magazine Apps Popular Among iPhone Users – A handful of magazine apps are gaining significant traction among iPhone users. After less than two weeks, Seventeen magazine’s first iPhone app has already made it to the top of the lifestyle category in the Apple iTunes store, among free apps. “We are up to over 130,000 downloads,” said a spokeswoman, who added the “Seventeen Fashion Finder” app knocked Virtual Zippo Lighter out of the top spot (which it held for over a year). “We’ve promoted this everywhere — in the magazine, Web site, Facebook, Twitter and MySpace,” said editor in chief Ann Shoket

  • Twitter Yields Uneven ROI for News Organizations Using Automation, Curation, Interaction – Quels sont les meilleures tactiques pour un médias sur Twitter ? Faut-il balancer un flux rss ou bien agir « à la main » ? Faut-il interragir à tout prix ou bien s’en tenir à une logique broadcast ? A moins qu’il ne faille faire un peu tout cela à la fois ….
  • Une semaine sans web dans la rédac du Monde. (aka, « Le Monde est à la pointe de la techno, twitter toussa. ») – Au départ, c’était une idée simple, banale. On se demandait en riant « comment c’était, avant ? » Avant ou plutôt hier, il y a 15 ans à peine. Comment vivait-on sans Internet ? Comment travaillait-on quand on était journaliste ?
