"Right now, publishers are trying to transition to the mobile web in a number of ways…building traditional web sites, mobile sites and native APPs tied to a specific device for a specific operating system…..How do we keep up with the ever-growing number of mobile devices and capabilities of operating systems? How can we shift with the market and/or respond to the needs of our users faster? How can we get a handle on the sheer volume of work on our web devs and digital designers?"
- Miranda Mulligan, Digital Design Director - BostonGlobe.com
Miranda just unveiled the new, responsively designed BostonGlobe.com. Join her at DUXcamp and together we’ll explore other new ways to report, design, and tell our stories!
Charles Darwin did this, slowly and painfully, and so can you.
Every day we walk through the world. We look around. We think we see what’s going on, but it is hard to remember how routinized we are as we look, how we automatically see things from our accustomed angle, never thinking of alternate possibilities.
I mean, who goes to Mount Rushmore and thinks about this? - Robert Krulwich, Radiolab
Come hear what Robert has to say about the creative process; how it works when things go right, and how it can get even better when things go wrong. See you at DUXcamp!
DUXcamp sponsorship opportunities
As DUXcamp nears, many of our partners and attendees have inquired about sponsorship opportunities. Yes! Of course, we would love to hear from you. DUXcamp has been a tremendous undertaking and, though the event is free to all attendees, we’re hoping to cover some of our costs related to the hotel, receptions, and materials.
With DUXcamp in its first year, this is a great opportunity for our partners and longtime friends to show their support while providing unparalleled visibility for their organization, as well as their products and services.
For more information on DUXcamp sponsorship opportunities, please contact Chris Howie at 202.513.3992 or email@example.com.
Another design goal for Tumblr is the idea of taking away the intimidation of blogging — you know, the dreaded confrontation of an empty page. This is achieved with with smaller text fields and even a range of non-text options. “We don’t want to make you feel like you need to write three paragraphs and post a photo,” he says. “You can just post a photo.” The reason the “Create Post” button to publish a post is so big and shiny? They want you to feel good about pushing posts out in the world, as often as possible.
Welcome to NPR DUXcamp! Oct. 22, 2011 in Washington, D.C.
NPR is rapidly transforming itself from a broadcast organization into a true multimedia, multiplatform information source. At the heart of this transformation is NPR’s embrace and development of visual forms of storytelling; stories that are designed to complement the quality audio storytelling NPR has pioneered for more than 40 years.
We are not alone in the quest to understand this new, visual and interactive community storytelling space. However, that’s where DUXcamp 2011 comes in. DUXcamp is NPR’s contribution to building a community of storytellers who can experiment, share and gain knowledge from each other as we transform our prehistoric cave drawings into tales that have meaning around our new, digital campfires.
This tumblr will be where we share our notes and thoughts as we prepare for DUXcamp. Please check back often and send us your ideas about what we can do to make DUXcamp a success for you! firstname.lastname@example.org
