Medier, tech og business: Uge 30, 2017

Læn dig tilbage og dyk ned: Her er det ugentlige tilbageblik på medier, teknologi, forretning og design. Denne gang bl.a. om push-notifikationer, medietillid, Flash-død, Facebook-video, designproces og AI til Analytics.

❓ Hvad er det her?

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

Tip: Du kan holde CTRL (CMD på Mac) nede, når du trykker på et link for at åbne det i et nyt faneblad. Hold SHIFT nede for at åbne i et nyt vindue. På telefon eller tablet, skal du holde din finger nede på linket og vælge nyt vindue/faneblad.

Husk, du kan abonnere på vores nyhedsbrev, så får du en mail med ugens opsamling.



🔮 Generelt / tendenser

🇩🇰 Nieman Lab skriver om Føljeton

I april bekendtgjorde Nieman Lab (der bor på Harvard University), at de gerne ville skrive mere om medieinnovation i andre lande end USA. Det har blandt andet ført til en artikel om danske Føljeton.

Artiklen gør status på det nye danske medie, så hvis du kender Føljeton ret godt allerede, er det ikke sikkert, der er så meget nyt for dig der. Men det er rart at se, at nytænkning i det danske mediemarked kan nå udenfor vores lands grænser.

🍏 Er Danmark ved at blive et Apple-land?

Her i Danmark har vi traditionelt været glade for Microsoft-produkter, især i vores virksomheder, og det har flere gange ført til, at Danmark er blevet kaldet for et “Microsoft-land”. Men det ser ud til at være godt på vej til at ændre sig. Computerworld skriver i hvert fald, at vi er et Apple-land:

Danskere bruger Apple-produkter som aldrig før. 80 procent af mobiltrafikken sker nu med en iOS-enhed, og lidt over halvdelen af trafikken på danske websider foregår med en Apple-enhed.

✔️ Læs om faktatjekværktøjet ‘Check’

In addition to CrossCheck’s use of the tool in France, Check has been used in recent months by organizations across the globe covering elections in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It’s also worked with groups such as ProPublica, which is using Check for Documenting Hate, its collaborative effort to track hate crimes in the United States. Amnesty International has also used the platform.

❓ Undersøgelse af tillid til og betaling for medier

As part of the Trusting News project, 28 partner newsrooms asked their audiences to tell them about their views on the credibility of news. They published a questionnaire asking their readers, listeners and viewers about their demographics and political leanings, and how many news organizations they support financially.

🚪Adobe lukker Flash i 2020

Adobe today announced that Flash, the once-ubiquitous plugin that allowed you to play your first Justin Bieber video on YouTube and Dolphin Olympics 2 on Kongregate, will be phased out by the end of 2020. At that point, Adobe will stop updating and distributing Flash. Until then, Adobe will still partner with the likes of Apple, Mozilla, Microsoft and Google to offer security updates for Flash in their browsers and support new versions of them, but beyond that, Adobe will not offer any new Flash features.

📱 Mobil

🖼️ Sådan bruger The Guardian billeder i notifikationer

At the lab, we’ve experimented a lot with the web Notification API. But mobile capabilities are always improving, and since our last experiment Google expanded their Notification API capabilities to add an image attribute, letting you use Android’s BigPictureStyle notification on phones. This is particularly interesting for us, since in previous experiments we had to cram data visualizations into the icon of the notification. Now, with a larger canvas to play with, we wondered what we could achieve.

Why assumed knowledge is the ‘enemy of the push alert’ [Journalism.co.uk]
Push alerts can be excellent at driving readership, but what do news organisations need to consider when using notifications to engage audiences?

Turn Off Your Push Notifications. All of Them [Wired]
Push notifications are ruining my life. Yours too, I bet. Download more than a few apps and the notifications become a non-stop, cacophonous waterfall of nonsense.

🏭 Uddrag fra bog om prototyper

This chapter is not a detailed step-by-step guide, nor will it teach you how to use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, or frameworks. It aims to help you understand all the options for creating HTML prototypes and their benefits. You’ll find out what’s needed to get started, and gain some guidance on how to approach creating an HTML prototype. We’ll also include some real-life prototyping case studies from some of the projects we’ve worked on at fffunction.

🎥 Se traileren til Spielbergs filmatisering af ‘Ready Player One’

Indrømmet, her er vi i udkanten af, hvad denne opsamling omfatter – men fordi det er ferietid, og bogen bag filmen trods alt handler om Virtual Reality, så tager vi den med:

If you’re wondering how Steven Spielberg will bring the dystopian, VR-heavy world of Ready Player One to life, you can get your first real glimpse in the trailer (technically, a teaser for San Diego Comic Con) above.

The film is based on Ernest Cline’s novel — a book that’s been recommend to me many times as one of the best depictions of virtual reality and gaming in fiction.

👪 Organisation / Proces

🔎 Designproces: Definér dit scope

Suddenly, the client has a better idea of what you can do to make the project a success, which, yes, will involve some additional work you didn’t talk about earlier. You’ve worked hard, but the client now wants to change direction, making everything you’ve done a waste. What you thought was a straight shot to launch has turned into a meandering journey through the backroads of indecision.

😬 Drop undskyldningen om, at organisatorisk forandring er svær

The insidious myth that change initiatives usually fail is disturbingly widespread. Most experts, for example, state that 70% of change efforts fail, but a 2011 study in the Journal of Change Management, led by the University of Brighton researcher Mark Hughes found that there is no empirical evidence to support this statistic. In fact there is no credible evidence at all to support the notion that even half of organizational change efforts fail.

🎤 Sådan arbejder IBM med bruger-research

Obviously it’s critical to plan a user research study that matches the research questions, so the right kind of data (qualitative or quantitative) is collected using the correct research method at the right time. This is where having experienced user researchers on the team will make all the difference. They will help ensure that any user research studies undertaken follow best practices and target appropriate user profiles. They will also be adept at analyzing the research data and drawing our key insights.

👎 Fire fejltagelser der dræber crowdsourcing

I ægte ‘executive summary’-stil:

  • They allowed messy, unfocused core interactions.
  • They had too much vertical integration and too little orchestration.
  • They produce too much social waste.
  • They fail to leverage network effects.

✏ UX / Design / Teknik

⬆️ Hvordan skal du opskalere billeder fra mobil til desktop?

Websites are often designed with a mobile-first or mobile-focused approach. But sites that are optimized for mobile don’t always translate well to larger screens. Those larger screens may be tablets, laptops, desktops or even 30-inch monitors with 4K resolution. Users of these high-end devices should also be supported by your design.

🔏 Kom i gang med ‘Privacy by Design’

In these politically uncertain times, developers can help to defend their users’ personal privacy by adopting the Privacy by Design (PbD) framework. These common-sense steps will become a requirement under the EU’s imminent data protection overhaul, but the benefits of the framework go far beyond legal compliance.

☁️ Serverless på Google-skyen

Når man hører begrebet ‘Serverless’ drejer dig sig typisk om Amazons cloud-løsning (som i dette blogindlæg af vores udviklingschef). Men Google vil også være med:

Cloud Functions is Google’s entry into the serverless computing craze. The promise of serverless architecture is that it dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of developing, scaling, and operating a range of applications. While there are still a host of issues to resolve, the potential benefits are enormous, especially for microservices, IoT, and mobile.
