Vocativ is a new kind of news site that will come out of Beta soon. My understanding is that it will be a combination of journalism that will tap into data and social media sources to assemble a more complete story.
One of the things that Vocativ wants to encourage more citizen journalism recording.
This is a video from their community site that gives doable techniques to record a public protest or a community peace out.
Kinda re-enforces what I have been saying:
- Have a plan when you go out to record.
- Snag a variety of shots.
- Make sure the audio is tight.
- Make extra sure you are safe, especially around those folks wearing blue and carry a baton or tazer.
