My pal, the new media revolutionary Rosental Alves, (pictured left) invited me to join him on a visit to the newsroom of the troubled Boston Globe on 7 August, and the top two people showed us around – Marty Baron, the editor (pictured right), and David Beard who edits Boston.Com.

When convergence can(’t) work

Siren rhetoric about convergence can sometimes hide complexities about the concept. For instance, the fact that the coming together of media streams is also about divergence – in the form of multiple disparate platforms coming into publishing play, including completely new ones, as commentator Arthur Goldstuck observed at the HighwayAfrica conference.

Anyone for a work-out?

Singapore’s mainstream media comes in for criticism for highlighting problems, rather than benefits, of press freedom in its coverage of a session I spoke at, at the WJEC-AMIC conferences.

Hard to judge, but I did visit the offices (pic beneath) of the Straits Times , and was taken with their working environment.

Video flow in a converged newsroom

Davin McHenry of Bakersfield discusses their process for Editing reporter-shot video (found on Teaching Online Journalism). He discusses how they have dedicated vidoe editors because they can produce content of a (usually) high standard in roughly half the time as would be the case if the original reporter edited it. It seems like a logical conclusion, but he mentions that the dedicated editors do go and shoot their own video too.
