I coded my first website today completely from scratch. I have worked with HTML at a basic level, for work, but this is the first time I actually built something myself. It’s not a live Web site just yet, so you cant go looking for it, but I’ll be putting all this knowledge to work tomorrow when I make my first phone app. I won’t put you all through the pain of seeing my actual HTML and CSS text but just know that its there, behind the scenes.
Created using Many Eyes, a free data visualization website.
Simply put the Gadget Guy, Jack Rowland, is amazing. He just updated my whole thought process about how I can use my phone. I think he actually only meant to show us the hardware that allows reporters to shoot video, photo and audio quickly with their phone or high performing camera. But once I started downloading the apps he showed us I began to think about other ways to use my phone and downloaded a whole bunch of other useful apps. Here’s my list of apps every journalist should have on their phone (I’ll update as I find more):
- Cover it live: live reporting
- reeldirector//splice: video editing
- WordPress: on the go posting
- Color effects: video editing
I recently had a very hard time getting the video off my iPhone to a computer where it could be edited. But I have just discovered WordPress for my iPhone and I am thinking this is the best way I have found to post video thus far. If anyone one knows a faster way let me know.
(This video is uploaded directly from the WordPress app on my phone. It’s the unedited version of the last video I posted)
**Update: The video did not upload from WordPress on my phone because it was too large, so I am back where I started not knowing how to get video off my phone. So again if anyone has any tips please let me know.
In ancient tribes people would gather around the fire to hear the local story teller. But if no one showed up to hear the stories this elder had to tell, what would you say?
I automatically thought that the story teller would have to tell different or better stories and that was Larry Dailey’s, UNR Reynolds Chair of Media Technology, point.
Dailey asked Maynard Fellows today, “what is journalism’s role?” And should we save it? With the idea that if people are leaving our papers, our metaphorical camp fires, maybe we should tell different or better stories, the stories people will come to hear. And Dailey thinks this change starts with
(1)EMPATHY, going beyond just learning what our readers want but also experiencing those wants for ourselves. Its a fascinating set of idea but ones that make a lot of sense to me.
(2)Brainstorming: at least 5 people, all from different groups. put together seemingly unrelated ideas.
