The New News Story

It’s definitely a mistake for people to imagine that video segments or “mulitmedia-ized” stories are going to replace the old news story as the primary means of relating daily events on the web. The news story is going to become something much more interesting than that.

Here’s a great example from the Las Vegas Sun of a story on the web that isn’t just “vaguely interactive,” but truly understands how to create something that’s actually news — i.e., it’s a story you might see on tv, might hear on the radio or see in the paper on any given day — but isn’t driven by a news event or even an industry report — it’s an actual “thoughtful structure.”
