Chrys Wu – CBS TV Digital Media Group

Posted on 04. Oct, 2007 by in Broadcast

Your work in networked/citizen/collaborative journalism.
Working with bloggers and mainstream media to bring them together online. Coming up with creative ways to make stories more interactive. Coordinating and distributing live video streams simultaneously across many websites.

What are your goals?
To learn what others are doing, and share and improve upon ideas.

Notable achievements?
Worked on Pulitzer Prize-winning interactive project
Formed large discussion communities online on BBSes and CompuServe (yes, I’m ancient in Internet years…)
Created user-friendly elections information websites for public radio

Lesson you’ve learned (including mistakes you’ve made)
“You’re never really finished, you just run out of time.”

Are you getting revenue for this? How?
Revenue in some cases was for ad exposures, in other cases, was for number of visits and time spent on site.

What’s next? What do you need to get to the next level?
I’d like more opportunities — and the necessary resources — to develop projects and stories that engage readers/users.

Anyone you’d like to talk with, learn from, or work with at the summit
