#OpenScilogs: A Future of Media project

  1. 1. OpenSciLogs Crowd-funding Participatory, Open Notebook Science Reporting Paige Brown & Pratiti Diddi Manship 7999
  2. 2. Concepts • Wiki Journalism • Spreadability • Changing Traditional Media Business Model – Crowd Funding • Open Notebook Science
  3. 3. Design Brief for OpenSciLogs Target Audience: Readers generally engaged with science; other science bloggers and journalists Tone: Open to new ideas and directions, transparent, participatory Platforms: SciLogs.com blog posts for updates and final story; Google doc or other document file sharing for raw materials, notes, references, links etc.; Social media for audience engagement Content: In-depth, critical analysis of a science or science communication issue or topic that deserves more attention, that readers express an interest in, etc. Conversation: The goal is to spark conversation and participation in the ongoing story, not to keep materials, quotes, or story ideas close for fear of „scooping.‟
  4. 4. Specific Design Concepts & Rules 1. Crowd-funding of in-depth “open notebook” science reporting “story project” by one SciLogs blogger every 30 days. 2. Selected blogger, once funded, begins the reporting phase. For each story project, the funded blogger provides all raw data, notes, source information and source contact information (if permission granted from source) in a public Google Doc (or similar public document sharing tool), on an ongoing basis. 3. For each story project, the selected blogger is strongly encouraged to have another blogger, journalist or editor fact-check (for a share of the funding or authorship.) 4. For the duration of each story project, the lead blogger posts weekly short blog updates. 5. Anyone can contribute story ideas, story content and/or multimedia to each OpenSciLogs story project, and are encouraged to claim partial authorship.
  5. 5. Inspiration for OpenSciLogs And inspiration from MC 7999 of course! Special Topics: Future of Digital Media Spring 2014 Dr. Lance Porter Word Doc Track Changes

  7. 7. Success? We‟ve had several people contribute to our first #OpenSciLogs story Google Doc: ow.ly/w8Pqo (students and scientists)
  8. 8. A Future Platform? Each story lives on a sub-page that is editable by logging in (Track Changes) When not logged-in, story page takes inspiration from Medium format A Front page with Live “story” tiles
