11 Exceptional election front pages :: 10,000 Words :: where journalism and technology meet

Designing Media

Mainstream media, often known simply as MSM, have not yet disappeared in a digital takeover of the media landscape. But the long-dominant MSM-television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and books-have had to respond to emergent digital media. Newspapers have interactive Web sites; television broadcasts over the Internet; books are published in both electronic and print editions.

C’est quoi une équipe transmédia ? | transmedia lab

Story Architect est définitivement un métier du futur. Le salut du transmédia passe par la formation de personnes qui, comme Lance Weiler, sont à la fois auteur – réalisateur – producteur – chef de projet – designer d’architectures web – expert des médias sociaux – spécialiste des nouveaux moyens de distribution – acteur – animateur de communautés. Ainsi, le concept narratif sera nativement transmédia et incarné par une personne capable de porter la même vision tout au long du projet comme dans les productions plus traditionnelles.

Adolescent girls are capable of raising the standard of living in the developing world. Girls are the most likely agents of change, but they are often invisible to their societies and to our media. When everyone- girls, parents, teachers, executives, artists, hairdressers, forest rangers, rock stars, presidents, investors, advertisers, skateboarders, truckers, cowboys, organizations, chefs, teenagers- knows about the Girl Effect, then real change can happen. This site is just the beginning. The end is nothing less than ending poverty.
