Ryan Sholin at Invisible Inked is looking for bright spots that redefine news.
He’s started a list that shows some creative Web executions. Several commenters have added sites of their own. For example:
- Beatblogging.org, which launched during last year’s Networked Journalism Summit at NYU. A group of reporters and bloggers use it to incorporate community into their beats.
- A map linked to stories about the reconstruction of a major interstate, from The Post-Standard of Syracuse, N.Y.
- Wikileaks, which was recently slapped with an injunction by a U.S. District Court judge.
- A directory of local business services in Lawrence, Kan. (check out the mobile version) from the Lawrence Journal-World
- An interactive map of flight delays into McCarron International Airport, Las Vegas, from the Las Vegas Sun.
What I find interesting is that most of the examples on Ryan’s page are from newspapers. Other organizations (NPR, anyone?) must be doing interesting things as well. C’mon, represent!
If you’ve got redefining work of your own, feel free to show it off here in comments, and let Ryan know.
