A Collaborative Project Between Courses in Journalism and Media Technology

shed light on our research questions, we draw on research and theory concerning digital technology in newsrooms, digital storytelling and interdisciplinarity. Engineers and developers often work in teams that are separate from the editorial development teams and the business development teams in a media company. However, without the necessary cross-disciplinary collaboration between different professional groups, innovation might become difficult and counter-productive ( Westlund 2011 ; Westlund 2012 ). According to Lewis and Westlund (2015) , previous research

Covering Regional Blind Spots
Commentary journalism in the regional public sphere

agenda was to build and support the northern region culturally, economically and politically, and to stimulate opinion-making and public debate. However, during the 1990s, Nordlys made the same geographical withdrawal as other regional papers and chose to concentrate its news coverage on the publishing town of Tromsø ( Christensen & Tjelmeland, 2002 ). Table 1 Media landscape in the northern region In 2014, however, Nordlys launched its commentary innovation: Nordnorsk debatt online. A website being part of Nordlys that had opinion-based content: both

Walking Through, Going Along and Scrolling Back
Ephemeral mobilities in digital ethnography


Spatial metaphors have long been part of the way we make sense of media. From early conceptualizations of the internet, we have come to understand digital media as spaces that support, deny or are subject to different mobilities. With the availability of GPS data, somatic bodily movement has enjoyed significant attention in media geography, but recently innovations in digital ethnographic methods have paid attention to other, more ephemeral ways of moving and being with social media. In this article, we consider three case studies in qualitative, “small data” social media research methods: the walkthrough, the go-along and the scroll back methods. Each is centred on observing navigational flows through app infrastructures, fingers hovering across device surfaces and scrolling-and-remembering practices in social media archives. We advocate an ethnography of ephemeral media mobilities and suggest that small data approaches should analytically integrate four dimensions of mediated mobility: bodies and affect, media objects and environments, memory and narrative, and the overall research encounter.

Digital Equality and the Uptake of Digital Applications among Seniors of Different Age

the future situation will be with regard to older adults’ uptake of different ICT related applications. Theoretical perspectives Digital inequality can be defined from the perspectives of access, usage, skills and self-perceptions ( Robinson et al. 2015 ). This study focuses on usage and will have its point of departure in theories explaining who takes up use of new media technologies. The process of diffusion of innovations takes place in a larger social context, where social factors, or ‘supervening social necessities’ ( Winston 1998 ) are operating

A Pilot Study on Developing Newsgames in Collaboration between Journalism and Computer Science Students

more data journalism course by the mid-2010s ( Berrett & Phillips, 2016 ). Similar concerns have been raised in relation to statistical reasoning skills in journalism schools ( Martin, 2017 ). New kinds of collaboration, for example with information technology (IT) specialists and interaction designers, are already required at the higher education level (Angus & Doherty, 2015). One avenue of innovation many news organisations have tried out is the use of ‘game-like strategies that aim to approach and engage with the public through social media and playful

Viable, Sustainable or Resilient?
Understanding the hyperlocal business ecosystem

business model and business model innovation through various resource components ( Amit & Zott, 2001 ; Chesbrough, 2003 ; Teece, 2010 ). Our starting point is to emphasise the importance of revenues and to allow for adaptation. Here a business model is “in the sense of being self-sustainable on the basis of the income it generates” ( Brousseau & Penard, 2007 : 82). Business models need to allow for elements of change ( Linder & Cantrell, 2000 ) and “how the firm receives and provides value to other entities in the value network and how the entities within the value

In an industry that prizes innovation and originality, this free thinking can be very helpful. They take advantage of local talents, locations and stories, but also think global when it comes to networking, co-production, and distribution. Lastly, regional film companies can contribute to place promotion, which in turn promotes them as well – an example of this is the television series Lilyhammer ( Kongsrud 2013 ), which brought attention to
