Opsamling: Medier og teknologi i uge 4, 2017

Et tilbageblik på ugen der gik indenfor medier, teknologi og forretning.

❓ Hvad er det her?

Hver fredag laver jeg (Lars K Jensen fra Ekstra Bladets udviklingsafdeling) en opsamling indenfor medier, udvikling og teknologi. Her præsenterer jeg noget af det mest interessante, jeg er faldet over i ugens løb.

ℹ️ Lidt om denne uges opsamling

Udgivelsesfrekvenser, globale nyhedsbreve, blockchain, Trump, agile myter, burnout og en UX-øvelse.

Det og meget mere kan du læse om i denne uges opsamling. God fornøjelse 🙂

🔮 Generelt / tendenser

└ Nye medier udgiver færre artikler

Der er en tendens i gang, som jeg tidligere har behandlet i et essay med titlen ‘Afhængighed gennem begrænsning’ [Medieblogger]. En række nystartede medier eksperimenterer med at udgive færre artikler, og nogle af de ‘tunge drenge’ er ved at opdage, at det er værd at kigge på.

Hvis du synes, det lyder interessant, bør du læser Digiday-artiklen ‘Scaled back: Why publishers are rethinking their pursuit of huge numbers’:

A few may even be looking to shrink the overall number of stories they publish. In its recently released internal report, The New York Times concluded that “too many” of the hundreds of stories it published on a daily basis “lack significant impact or audience” and that they failed in the most basic function that Times’ content ought to serve: to make it a “valuable destination.”

└ The Guardian lukker sit medie- og teknologi-netværk

The Guardian Media and Tech Network launched on 15 February 2012, with the aim of creating a community of professionals and “connecting the dots in global media and technology”. […]

But all good things must come to an end. As we’re sure many of you are aware, ​times are tough in the advertising market which the Guardian depends on to fund much of its journalism.

└ Fake News: Facebook opdaterer ‘Trending’

Facebook is updating its “trending” feature that highlights hot topics on its social networking site, part of its effort to root out the kind of “fake news” stories that critics contend helped Donald Trump become president.

└ ‘Blockchain’ kan revolutionere den digitale økonomi

Magtforholdene i den digitale økonomi vil i de kommende år blive vendt op og ned af blockchain-teknologi. Går det, som flere eksperter spår, betyder det en generobring af vores personlige rettigheder. Selv vor tids deleøkonomier som Airbnb og Uber vil blive k

└ Skrappere datakrav i 2018

I maj 2018 ændrer reglerne for håndtering og opbevaring af persondata sig markant, når EU’s persondataforordning to år efter vedtagelsen i 2016 rulles ud på dansk lov.

Med de nye regler står virksomheder og myndigheder over for skærpede krav til dokumentation og håndtering af data.

└ EU-cookie-ændring kan give flere advarsler

Det er særdeles usikkert om EU-Kommissions bud på opdatering af cookie-reglerne reelt leder til færre cookie-bokse. Ingen løsning, siger Danske Medier.

👔 Forretning

└ 600 mio pund spildt på annoncer

Looking at 2016 as a whole, over half of banner adverts failed to meet the IAB and Media Ratings Council’s recommendation that 50% of an ad was in view for at least 1 second. Despite a promising start in the first quarter (where 54% of ads served met the requirements) the remaining three quarters fell below the mark.

In total £606m was lost from advertisers’ pockets to non-viewable adverts.

└ Kan Trump (indirekte) redde medierne?

Readers have finally understood that their payments for the news will actually make a difference in what they and their community know. That model needs to be extended down to states and cities.

└ Nyt medie: Axios

I forrige uge gik et nye medie i luften, og de lagde ud med en Trump-artikel:

Jim VandeHei’s Axios officially launched Wednesday (with a team of 47 and another 16 open positions listed) and its first feature is a splashy one: An interview with President-elect Donald Trump.

But the interview isn’t presented as an hour-long video, or a 3,000-word transcript. Instead, there are multiple posts about it, the longest of which is 643 words.

└ Fire agile myter, du skal undgå

  1. Agile is something that you “do.”
  2. Scrum = Agile.
  3. Product Owner is a “part-time” role.
  4. Your tech can lag behind your agility.

└ Undgå ‘Generosity Burnout’

Selflessness at work leads to exhaustion — and often hurts the very people you want to help. Here’s how to share your time and expertise more effectively.

Læs artiklen → [Harvard Business Review]

…artiklen indeholder også en interessant pointe om, hvordan gavmilde mennesker kan planlægge deres hjælp til andre:

That doesn’t necessarily mean spending less time helping; it can be more about pacing yourself and allocating your time wisely. In one of our favorite experiments, psychologists asked people to perform five random acts of kindness every week for six weeks. Participants were randomly assigned to either “sprinkling” or “chunking” their acts of kindness. Sprinkling meant spreading them out by doing one a day. Chunking meant picking one day — let’s say Thursday — for all five helpful acts.

Half the participants experienced a boost in happiness and energy that lasted for the entire study. For the other half, the giving did nothing whatsoever to improve their moods. When we ask executives to guess which group got the energy spike, more than 80% vote for sprinkling. They assume that a little giving every day is a reliable way to lift your spirits. But they’re wrong. Only the chunking group got happier.
