  1. 1. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Experiential Newsrooms & Why the Intersection of Technology and Content is our New Challenge @rajunarisetti #ISOJ12 Austin April 21, 2012 1
  2. 2. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Our recent past, our present and our future lies in expanding our digital audiences 2
  3. 3. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. In 2012, “talking” about print and web integration issues in a newsroom is akin to sweating over dial-up web access. 3
  4. 4. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. But what is reality in Circa 2012 is that the definition of a journalist’s job must now include: “getting more people to consume more of my journalism” 4
  5. 5. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. But we also know now that digital audiences are and will be more promiscuous, amid a proliferation of original and aggregated content, and multiple platforms. 5
  6. 6. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. So how do we both bring new audiences to our journalism and keep this inherently promiscuous reader coming back to our “virtual” newsroom and brand? 6
  7. 7. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Great and relevant journalism is a given. But just great content is no longer enough. 7
  8. 8. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. To first win, and then get readers to come back for more, news rooms should pivot from creating great content to creating great experiences. 8
  9. 9. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. And in the “experience” is where we will either win or lose journalism’s future. 9
  10. 10. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Words + Picture + Chart + Sound + Slide Shows + Interactive Graphics + Databases + Video 10
  11. 11. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. The Good News News rooms by and large have mastered the parts that make for a complete digital story. And we are getting good at doing things On THE WEB 11
  12. 12. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. The Bad News We are terrible at turning the parts into a great experience every day. We are nowhere close to doing journalism Of THE WEB 12
  13. 13. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Good (and Bad) Experiences all come at the same intersection: of content and technology 13
  14. 14. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. If we thought integrating print and online in the newsroom was hard, try integrating Content & Code/Hacks & Hackers 14
  15. 15. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Some lessons, learnings and observations from this ongoing battlefront 15
  16. 16. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Developers see Content as “stuff” and Code as “art.” Journalists see Code as “stuff” and Content as “art.” So, can we begin with what is the audience/user “experience” we want to create? 16
  17. 17. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. The “experience” can’t come from the IT department alone: Developers are not short-order cooks Can we “embed” developers in the newsroom, into news flow? 17
  18. 18. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. Where you sit--physically and organizationally--matters -- Architecture matters -- Titles matter -- Credit (s) matter 18
  19. 19. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. To preserve good experiences, in a world of digital permanence, news rooms must now plan for impermanence. Re-thinking shelf-life matters 19
  20. 20. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. A growing challenge is how do we find this “experiential” journalist? We moved from “Show Don’t Tell” to “Show and Tell” Can journalism training pivot to engaging our audiences/users? 20

  25. 25. © 2011 Dow Jones & Company, Inc. All rights reserved. A promiscuous audience is our new reality. Are our news rooms ready to give them an experience worth coming back to, over and over again? @rajunarisetti 25
