The MS Meme #18

meme

Keeping track of the growing MediaSnackers Meme.

(WORLD) We probably weren't the first to apply the 'snacking' metaphor to media, although there seems to be a growing adoption in terms of describing the new media landscape—we thought it would be good to keep an eye on the growing MediaSnacking meme:

My daily ritual involves as much media snacking, blogging and social networking as I possibly can for my clients and to build own my personal brand.

Got to love Deirde’s approach.

A buffet of delicious micro-media snacks.

Get stuck in to Greg’s offering

Duncan started his presentation with a quick review of the changing media landscape and how the digitization of content is driving consumer choice. Mobile is another huge force, along with media snacking and social networking. All these things point to more power for consumers.

Sounds like a great presentation by Disney dude

Street Athletics 2009

streetathletics

Technology Sunday!

(GBR) Myself and Bobbie were hanging out in London on Sunday, with Kash, Ryan and Mbali at the Street Athletics digital journalists training course—and loved it.

Being Prince’s Trust Ambassadors, they have been through a great digital media training course and found it no trouble converting their knowledge into a journalistic setting. The emphasis being, short tight edits, punchy pictures and quick uploads.

All the guys did a great job of filming, editing and blogging, and learnt the process of capturing a live event. Now it’s up to them to act as project managers for the young people that will be covering all the Street Athletics events throughout the UK.

Good luck guys, we have had a fun day—check out the video and photos below:

MediaSnackers have once again provided us with a top quality service, adding to our project and providing expert training. This is the second time we have used them and I’m happy to use them as I know we’ll continue to receive the same high level of service.
