Condition ONE Makes War Footage Immersive and Interactive

Despite unceasing conflict around the globe, war journalism has fallen on hard times. In the words of award-winning war correspondent Danfung Dennis, the art of photojournalism is "dying." Dennis has created a new system, called Condition ONE, which he hopes will breathe new life into wartime videography by creating an immersive and interactive experience. There are several parts to the...

New York Times to Introduce Digital Paywall on March 28th

On March 28th, the New York Times will begin charging all but the most infrequent users to read articles online. Under the plan, users will be able to read 20 articles per month at no charge. Once they click on the 21st piece, however, they'll be presented with three payment options: $15 for four weeks a month of online and mobile app access, $20 for access to the site and the iPad app, or...

Facebook Upset Over Pedophile Story, Threatens to Sue Daily Mail

Facebook is none too pleased with the way the Daily Mail titled a recent story about a gang of pedophiles in the U.K., and the social network is willing to go to court to settle it. On Friday, the paper ran a front-page story about a "complex child abuse investigation," involving a group of pedophiles operating out of Devon and more than 20 children who may have been targeted. At the time, it...

Roger Ebert Says the Web Has Spawned a 'Golden Age of Film Criticism'

With newspapers shedding film critics left and right, and amateur movie blogs gaining steam, many old-school academics and film journalists are blaming the Internet for what they call the 'Death of Film Criticism.' On the Web, literally everybody is a critic -- and that, some argue, threatens the very art of film criticism, itself. Roger Ebert, however, begs to differ. In a recent essay for...

Julian Assange Never Got Along Well With the Guardian, Report Shows

To all appearances, WikiLeaks' relationship with its select group of media partners has seemed relatively straightforward. Most reports on the partnerships generally followed the same story arc: that founder Julian Assange had handed over his organization's top-secret documents to the New York Times, the Guardian and El Pais, among others, and they, in turn, published them. But, according to...

The Best Tech Writing of 2010

Writing, whether it appeared in print or on a blog, was dissected, critiqued, relinked and shared faster than ever in 2010. Just take a look at the recent arguments on the Lamo/Manning Wikileaks chat logs between Salon's Glenn Greenwald and Wired's Kevin Poulsen that have spilled out from traditional columns to Twitter and back again. A New Yorker article from Malcolm Gladwell kicked off an...

Murdoch Tries to Keep Google Out of Times Office, Fails

Rupert Murdoch really wanted his new Sunday Times office to be Google-free. So, he decided to set all of his employees' homepages to Bing (Microsoft's chess champ to Google's high school quarterback), which, coincidentally enough, has received plenty of support from the media mogul. It wasn't long, though, before his underlings staged a peaceful revolution. "None of us knows how to use [Bing],"...

Steve Jobs, Rupert Murdoch to Launch iPad Newspaper

Rumor has it that Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch are joining forces to create the world's first digital "newspaper" designed exclusively for the iPad. The new publication, titled the 'Daily,' will be officially unveiled at the end of the month before launching sometime early next year. As the Guardian explains, the publication will combine "a tabloid sensibility with a broadsheet intelligence," and...

Joan Didion Isn't Slouching Towards Blogging Anytime Soon

We love you, Joan Didion! Bicoastal grandmother of New Journalism, with your wry eyes and detached verse -- won't you ever debase yourself and blog? "Well, I don't really understand blogging," the writer said at a luncheon for Colin Firth's new film 'The King's Speech.' She told Guest of a Guest, "It seems like writing, except quicker. I mean, I'm not actually looking for that instant...

Bob Woodward Stars in Bizarre Ad for Washington Post iPad App

The Washington Post has recently stepped into the e-publishing trade with its own iPad app, but, according to the paper's new commercial, all of its journalists are totally dumbstruck to be living in a post-print 2010. (See it after the break.) The ad begins when someone in the newsroom tells Bob Woodward about the iPad and about the Post's new app. Woodward immediately abandons whatever he was...

Longreads Launches Site for Finding Good Reads, We Go Hands On

In the age of 140-character tweets and bite-sized blog posts, Mark Armstrong found it increasingly difficult to locate lengthy articles to read during extended periods of downtime. So, he created the Longreads Twitter feed, where similarly inclined followers could submit and share meatier online pieces among themselves. Armstrong clearly wasn't the only one looking for long-form pieces, either....

Prepping 'Canabalt' for Launch, RickRolled by a Fax Machine

Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web. 'Canabalt' developer Adam Atomic details the process behind fine-tuning the addictive 8-bit, one-button jumping game. Random trivia: the 'Canabalt' runner, at 24x24 pixels, is a little taller than the classic Mario sprite. [From: Semi Secret Software] You know the day is only...

Everything Recurs: Sameness and the 'Magazining' of Web Content

Choire Sicha at The Awl is NOT pleased with what he calls "the magazining" of the Web. He points to Anthony De Rosa's observation that the redesigned New York Times opinion page looks remarkably similar to Gawker's beta homepage. (We feel compelled to point out that 'The Opinion Pages,' as they're called, look more like an evolution of the already magazine-y New York Times Magazine page.) "Is...

Steve Jobs vs. College Student E-mail Battle Goes to Good Morning America

In case you missed the e-mail fracas between Long Island University student Chelsea Kate Isaacs and His Majesty Steve Jobs last week, Isaacs went on Good Morning America yesterday to rehash the escalating back-and-forth between her and the Apple CEO. It all started when Isaacs tried to contact Apple's media relations department for a comment to include in a story she was writing for her...

Arthur Sulzberger Jr. Admits Paper Days of the New York Times Are Numbered

Perhaps like the executioner with axe in hand, we bloggers have, for some time, been grimly certain of print's inevitable demise. Still, our heads hung yet lower today following New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr.'s concessive words: "we will stop printing the New York Times sometime in the future." While Sulzberger wouldn't speculate as to when that day will come, the axe is most...
