Mind Map/Emerging Themes

Here’s a link to a mind map I created as I try to pinpoint emerging themes and decide how I will take all this information I’ve gathered and turn it into some kind of coherent report. Based on the process of the last few days I think I’m going to use CBC’s coverage of the G20, using community bloggers, to explore building relationships with the audience as a means of improving storytelling and increasing the number of viewpoints heard; the show Connect to showcase how formulaic news styles can be broken by incorporating transparency and increasing the number of news sources by using more real people found both on and off line; and for the website of the doc division I will be looking at the effects of money/convergence, working with industry partners/sponsors and the online community to keep the site current. After an examination of those particular sites, I think I’ll need to address the overarching theme of how all this might benefit the future of journalism, and resistance to change.
