From Time-Shift to Shape-Shift: Towards Nonlinear Production and Consumption of News

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 5066)

Abstract

People depend on news to make sense of happenings in the world, but current digital news products do not live up to their potential in this regard. Interactivity in relation to news is often seen as a way to give the consumer control over when to consume something and on which platform. Less attention has been placed on what should be consumed and how. Within the project MyNews- MyWay, a news service has been constructed that makes possible a more in-depth and varied media consumption than what traditional news services offer today. In addition to time-shifting, the service makes it possible to shift also the shape of the material consumed.
