El nuevo periodismo digital

Comienzo hoy en Proceso Digital la aplicación del nuevo concepto de periodismo utilizando las nuevas herramientas tecnológicas digitales a nuestro alcance.

La crónica que publico hoy en Proceso Digital**, un sitio en internet latinoamericano, es un buen ejemplo. Trata sobre el joven camarero mexicano que presenció el asesinato del senador Robert F. Kennedy en un hotel de Los Ángeles hace 50 años.

En una foto ya histórica y congelada en el tiempo. Juan Romero sostiene la cabeza ensangrentada del hermano menor del asesinado presidente John F. Kennedy, segundo después del atentado del palestino Sirhan Sirhan.

Durante varios meses he buscado a Juan Romero en California y al fotógrafo, Boris Yaro, que tomó la foto que fue primera página en todo el mundo al día siguiente.

Tread cautiously - The fake news syndrome and privacy crisis

Even as the social media revolution promises rich possibilities for empowering citizens, it has also given birth to the genie of fake news, disinformation, misinformation and trolling that pollute the very idea of a participatory democracy.

True to their instincts, India’s politicians used this opportunity to trade charges on leakage of Indian citizens’ private data for political campaigns.

Their fight took a different turn when it was discovered that several parties, including the Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party and Janata Dal (United), have been clients of Cambridge Analytica. Access to wide personal data required for using Prime Minister’s NaMo app and charges of leakage of such data to third parties outside India further complicated the politics of social media’s data sharing in India.

 Barcelona, Feb.22.– It’s clear that interest in digital cities is on the rise, and may soon become a mainstream focus for governments to improve life for citizens in increasingly urban, congested environments. Yet whilst nearly every city holds a 2020 digital strategy today, there is a disconnect between strategy and effective execution.

The initial vision of a ‘digital city’ originated from tech-driven companies pushing technology first, rather than putting citizens at the core of the design. For a digital city strategy to work in practice, citizens must be at the core.
