With all the media funerals and bankruptcies, it’s nice to get a warm fuzzy these days.
Point #1 – Stellar former print photographers and journalists turned videojournalists move on and set up their own business.
Story4.org has Richard Koci Hernandez on its team, so of course I’m not only rooting for them, but am confident they will find life beyond the printed page. They plan to offer training and do stories for nonprofits and media organizations. Best to all of ya!
Point #2 – Here’s another story, not-so-warm and very fuzzy. In light of global warming and melting ice caps, someone is trying to gather more information the old-fashioned way. Walk to the
South North Pole. Yeah, this intrepid group was dropped off today and will gather data as they trudge and sludge their way through broken ice fields. And they’re all forty-somethings.
What has me going is that they have their website AND they plan to Twitter as they go.
