Forgive me for not updating MUR. I’ve had two client projects to complete, work, Devin… yadda, yadda, yadda. There never seems to be enough hours in the day.
That being said, I’m going to divert your attention to a blog that all journalists, wanna be reporters, citizen journos, etc. should tune into.
If you haven’t checked out Mark Luckie’s 10,000Words, you’re missing out.
This guy has a pulse on new media innovation, and he even wrote a book about being a new school journo. Affiliate link – The Digital Journalist’s Handbook
I haven’t read the book, but would love to review it (wink).
Here are a few recent posts that caught my attention:
8 Totally awesome time-lapse videos: A video guy like myself appreciates the creativity and coolness of these vids.
Prison Valley: “Prison Valley is an interactive documentary that takes full advantage of the web to tell the story of Cañon City, Colorado, a prison town whose residents and livelihood stem from the incarceration of local inmates. The project is unique in its incorporation of video, social media, blogging, and even a mobile application to tell a single story.”
3 Underrated but essential skills for journalists: I’ve shared my thoughts on the skills that any surviving journalist must have. Mark adds his thoughts and you may be surprised.
If you’re questioning Luckie’s credentials, he’s the truth.
