Kolme strategiaa medialle

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Janne Zareff kirjoittaa viimeisessä Journalistin kolumnissaan, että verotuspäätökset eivät ratkaise ammattijournalismin ongelmia. Ongelmat  ratkaistaan sillä, että tarjotaan jotain sellaista, mistä jatkossakin yleisö on valmis maksamaan. Hän toteaa kylmän viileästi ja täysin oikein, että ammatijournalismin olemassaolo ei ole itsestäänselvyys, vaan että se on yksinkertaisesti ilmiö, joka on syntynyt tietynlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa. Toisenlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa sen olemassaolo voi […]

Outcastes – a Multimedia

Outcastes – a Multimedia

My wife looked over my shoulder when I was doing the last bits of editing yesterday. “This is the most impressive thing you’ve done in multimedia”, she said. Now talk about a compliment. And not that I agree… but I have to admit,  I am proud of it. Sure, the next thing will be better – […]

Congratulations, Heli!

Congratulations, Heli!

I’ve written about this multimedia piece couple of times earlier. But please bear with me one more time. Today I had the honor of receiving the Multimedia of the Year 2013 Award (Suomen Lehtikuvaajat / Finnish Pressphotographers Association) together with Heli Kaskinen in Helsinki for DocImages. My role in this production was simply to act […]

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Feb. 23rd, 2014 I started writing my blog from Sochi when opening ceremony was going on in Adler. There is some symmetry in the fact that I am writing this last chapter (from here) as the fireworks light the sky during the closing ceremonies. This was my seventh Olympics and I simply love doing them. […]

Sochi Olympics, Day 5: Emotions and Aesthetics

Feb. 10th, 2014 Writing the headline I am losing count on the days… But been here a week now and I think I will be falling into  this routine of posting every second day. At least I try to do it, we’ll see what happens. I have covered  Xcountry, ski jumping and biathlon so far. […]

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Feb 6th, 2014 The Sochi 2014 opening ceremony just started and I am watching it on TV. No, I did not go to the ceremony, it would have meant probably c. 10 hours including all the travelling, waiting and actual ceremony included. Yesterday was a total killer and I preferred to take it easy today. […]

Digital Indie Publishing

Some of you might have noticed the thing we did in DocImages couple of days ago. Well, if you didn’t, here’s a short recap. (And here is an article I wrote in Finnish in our blog) I am getting sick and tired of the ever tightening legacy print death spiral and especially frustrated with their […]

Redundancy Revisited

Redundancy Revisited

Came to think about this after a FB discussion I had with somebody. The argument was about the need for speed in todays media.  An argument I have heard so many times. Basically: How speed is of the essence and the winners of that battle will be the ones to survive in this game. I […]

From Disruption to Multimedia

This is one theme I have been talking about a lot lately. Earlier this summer I spoke about this in Nordic Freelance 2013 seminar, now last monday I spoke about it  in Tallinn, Estonia. I just thought I summarize the outline of my thinking here. In case somebody might find it useful… Or someone might […]
