A Weblog Got the Scoop
Who had the best coverage of the Third Latin American Digital Journalism Congress in Santiago, Chile? Of course, a weblog.
While some newspapers just ignored it, and others like La Tercera or La Segunda gave it a little space, a students' weblog put on screen everything, with interviews, notes, and, of course, personal opinions from the writers.
It was Arturo Catalán's weblog that did the best. He and María Pastora Sandoval are teachers of digital journalism at the Universidad del Desarrollo de Chile, and with his students they produced all the coverage (in Spanish).
As Catalán says in the introduction, "With this job it is stated that digital journalism's goal is to skip the boundaries" of traditional media.
