Matt Carrol - Future of News / Civic
Wanted a "BuzzFeed"able title. 5 top media leaders, hot new media trends. 10 called back.
Lesson to be learned about writing headline first.
C. - Circa, The Guardian, Bloomberg, Storify, The Washington Post, Twitter, Financial, Times, Knight-Mozilla OpenNews - Dan Sinker, Fresco - Dan van der Merwe., co-founder
Fresco News was created by 2 19 year old freshmen from NYU. The tools that exist today. But if 19 year olds are doing this, what happens after the seasoned professionals are done tearing it apart and putting it back together.
#2. Nevermind digital first… it’s mobile first.
50% traffic club (mobile) ;- Washington Post, etc., Twitter @ 80%
ATOMIZATION of news. Like Circa, bite-sized paragraphs. Like NYT Now, taking news and putting it into a tiny bucket so easy to consume on mobile.
