This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Thanks for all the work on your blog assignments thus far. Some of the most interesting posts featured videos, sketches and mock-ups -- check out some of them highlighted here in the first of our weekly blog round up posts.
This week, we've included a specific question to answer in your blog response:
Keeping in mind the objectives and challenges identified in this week’s presentations by Shazna Nessa and Mohamed Nanabhay, how does your project take into account the need to facilitate collaboration in the newsroom (whether real or virtual), while acknowledging that team members will have varying technological skill sets?

Hi, it has been a 7 or 8 days struggle but here is my third post:
«Teaching journalists how to fish?»
In this post, I don't address frontally my project (MetaFragments, a common data format for video and audio tweb app and web sites) but rather I try to prepare myself to talking with people inside the news industry.
That's why there is in fact 3 questions in this post, 3 questions for journalists and news organizations:
If you know how a particular news org or journalist answer those questions, I'd be happy to have your feedback!
"After the legislation was passed I saw a poll on CNN’s front page that I can only assume was a blatant taunt to drive this horrible situation home. The poll read something along the lines of “How satisfied are you with the actions of your elected representatives?” To which I responded by clenching my fists and screaming to the sky: “How the hell should I know?”"
ATTN-SPAN: Primary Sources for Common Folk -- My post on the motivation behind my project, inspired by recent events and fine tuned by Al Jazeera!
(Too late for credit I can only assume, but I still wanted to share!)
Took my some time to catch up (work. happens.) This is my response to the question:
It's just over 500 words. As in past weeks, I prefaced it with two blog posts, which are linked to: one summarizing and bookmarking the lectures; the other a 'rant' on something that they triggered and that is relevant to my response.
Some further elaborations on Sparkd and sources for collaborative neww production. Elaborating and sketching all at once is hard!
