YouTube & News: A New Kind of Visual News | Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) - 2 views

  •  
    The Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism examined 15 months' worth of the most popular news videos on the site (January 2011 to March 2012)[2]-some 260 different videos in all-by identifying and tracking the five most-viewed videos each week located in the "news & politics" channel of YouTube, analyzing the nature of the video, the topics that were viewed most often, who produced them and who posted them.[3]    The data reveal that a complex, symbiotic relationship has developed between citizens and news organizations on YouTube, a relationship that comes close to the continuous journalistic "dialogue" many observers predicted would become the new journalism online. Citizens are creating their own videos about news and posting them. They are also actively sharing news videos produced by journalism professionals. And news organizations are taking advantage of citizen content and incorporating it into their journalism. Consumers, in turn, seem to be embracing the interplay in what they watch and share, creating a new kind of television news.

BBC News - School ICT to be replaced by computer science programme - 5 views

  • "Instead of children bored out of their minds being taught how to use Word or Excel by bored teachers, we could have 11-year-olds able to write simple 2D computer animations," he said.

When Twitter comes into its own… | Lucacept - intercepting the Web - 1 views

  •  
    "Unfortunately, an impending disaster is sometimes the impetus for naysayers to see the worth of a service like Twitter. The hashtag being used on Twitter to track the tweets referring to Tropical Cyclone Yasi is #tcyasi. I've been following this hashtag today, and as the cyclone gets closer to the east coast of Far North Queensland, I am receiving more pertinent information there than what I am getting from news organisations like Channel 7 and their very sensationalist Today Tonight program."

In the latest example of the fact that "the public" in this context means absolutely anyone, 12-year old tech whiz Alex Miller, who hails from San Jose, right in the middle of Silicon Valley, has just received a $3,000 check from Mozilla for finding a major bug in the Firefox browser.

Schools: Get your discount at the App Store (some day) - 0 views

  •  
    An amendment enables developers to offer a 50% discount to educational institutions on multiple copies of apps. They can apply it to individual app titles, or to all apps that they currently offer in the App Store. As of yet, Apple hasn't noted when the discounts will be available for educational institutions, but this could be a nice treat for budget-strapped school systems in the near future.
