Debate sobre a Actualidade Editorial das Publicações Digitais

O Departamento de Ciências da Comunicação organiza no próximo dia 4 de Outubro, quinta-feira, pelas 18.30h, no Auditório 2, Piso 3, Torre B (FCSH-UNL - Av. de Berna 26-C), um debate sobre a Actualidade Editorial das Publicações Digitais, onde serão discutidos temas no âmbito das novas convergências digitais para as humanidades e as artes.

Neste debate interessa-nos explorar, de um ponto de vista interdisciplinar, conceptual e aplicado, o campo das narrativas de convergência multidisciplinar, quer no plano das estruturas interactivas, discursividades e hibridização de linguagens, quer no plano dos processos de produção e integração de tecnologias emergentes, tendo como objectivo pensar um novo modelo de "digital media", interactivo, na sua encruzilhada com o campo dos media e new media.

Este debate será também uma introdução ao Curso Livre sobre Conteúdos e Interfaces para Publicações Digitais Interactivas, a decorrer proximamente na FCSH.

 Participantes no debate:

 - Francisco Rui Cádima - Coordenador Executivo do Departamento de Ciências da Comunicação FCSH-UNL. Tema: Novas Convergências Digitais para as Humanidades

72 hours of video every minute

You Tube blog: Last year to celebrate our birthday, we wrote you, the YouTube Community, a thank you note for making our first 6 years so special. And on that birthday you gave us a great present by reaching a record rate of 48 hours of video uploaded to the site every minute. Well Community, this year, on our 7th birthday, you’ve outdone yourselves once again.

Today 72 hours of video are uploaded to the site every minute. Like many 7 year olds around the world, we’re growing up so fast! In other words, every single minute you now upload three whole days worth of video instead of two. That's 61 Royal Wedding Ceremonies, 841 Bad Romances, and 1,194 Nyan Cats.

Adobe Digital Index

Why marketers aren’t giving social the credit it deserves. Digital Index analyzed 1.7 billion visits to media, retail, and travel sites to understand social media’s impact on website traffic. The analysis showed that the last-click attribution models typically used by marketers underestimate social media’s value. First click attribution showed social media’s value to be nearly twice as high—a significant difference that could change how marketers invest.
