4 Tips for Aspiring Media Innovators

4 Tips for Aspiring Media Innovators: 1. Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment “You’d be amazed at how risk-averse most media companies are,” he says. “They are terrified, in the current economic climate, to take any risks. Our advice is that rapid iteration, lean startup experimentation designed to produce minimum viable prototypes is crucial if newsrooms want to stay ahead of their competitors, who are increasingly non-media companies such as mobile operators, and digital companies.” 2. Don’t Try to Do It All Yourself “Find partners, build synergies, share the burden. Journalists and the media they work for are very competitive. They have a ‘scoop’ culture that hates sharing,” Arenstein says. “But, when it comes to innovation, you will be more successful if you share ideas and build off the shoulders (and platforms and technologies) of others. Be realistic: No newsroom or media organization is going to throw away all their legacy systems, or re-engineer their workflow systems, just to accommodate your project. Try making your project compatible with other important newsroom tools like DocumentCloudFrontlineSMSmySociety or scores of others.” 3. Stay Small and Agile “A vibrant innovation community is starting to take root in Africa. You don’t have to hire or contract massive teams of developers, who then lock you into particular approaches or solutions,” he says. “You can instead tap into things like Hacks/Hackers to find fellow travelers who will allow you to share ideas and collaborate for as long as it makes sense, before parting ways.” 4. Keep an Open Mind . . . . "

Hulu launches a video hub dedicated to gaming | VentureBeat: "For years now, I’ve had a monthly tradition where I’ll type “apple.com/trailers” in my browser on a lazy Sunday and spend a couple of hours watching the new movie trailers in glorious Quick Time. I’ve never had that same go-to resource for gaming trailers. That’s what Hulu wants to be with its new video game hub at hulu.com/videogames. The Fox/CBS/Disney-ABC co-owned Internet video-streaming service is looking to lure in more viewers with a dedicated home for game trailers, reviews, and essential information (like release dates). It also looks pretty with large high-definition image headers for featured titles."
