Two interesting tidbits:
(1) Multimillion dollar author Paulo Coelho wants his audience to do all the heavy lifting while he profits — asking them to collectively shoot a film for his book The Experimental Witch. As MCDM student Carie Burgess notes, “There’s some interesting stuff going on here with regard to out-sourcing to your audience and leveraging UGC, licensing and rights, creative control, film-making, etc.”
(2) Barack Hussein Obama “gets it,” and apparently Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t! Great article by UW journalism professor David Domke notes why one journalism class leans towards Obama. Students who get respect from the real world while shooting, blogging and reporting (hint hint to those playing nice with our Flippers) reap unexpected rewards!
