Designing for Digital Journalism

Happy Saturday, DMSers. I hope the planning and research on your markets, The Problem and product ideas are going well.

I wanted to share a few great reads that directly relate to our focus on entrepreneurial journalism:

From news startup Circa comes “Kevin Rose’s’ North Technologies releases photo-sharing app.” This story highlights the classic Silicon Valley tech approach: create a Minimum Viable Product, get it to market, test it and test it some more, if it gains traction then start a deeper build out.

From NiemanLab comes an interesting piece about product design: Designer or Journalist: Who shapes the news you read in your favorite apps?

This second story is relevant as we’ll be moving into product design in the coming weeks.

Enjoy!
