Journalism needs some new ideas. It needs new practices, formats and platforms. And it needs its own people to invent them. To be able to manipulate and control them.
Since our outing at Storyology in December we’ve been tweaking the NewsCube and rolling out some new features, among them embedding and collaboration.
Shape is a tricky thing to work with and at NewsCubed it has been both our strongest feature and biggest challenge.
My NewsCube project has won a Walkley Innovation Grant. The project was one of six projects in the running for a share of $40,000 in seed funding to develop the project.
