The Cultural Observatory receives the cycle Newwws!, a reflection about the press, Internet, and the metamorphosis of the online communication. It is a forum where editors and readers can speak, discuss, debate and answer questions.
The title, Newwws! is a recall to the modern editorial design history, from the moment of the “news boys” who shouted the news aloud in the streets, to our days, when, thanks to Internet, we have full access to all kind of information with a simple finger movement on the mouse.
Nobody doubts that the future of the media is based on the on-line way of communication. Internet is quicker and cheaper the companies can save money count on its own digital media. The public is getting used to the information of this new technologies and the Internet world.
Information architecture of the new media, web design, new design, contents, new journalism, community managers, the leadership of the changes, where they came from, the future…, will be some of the subjects of the lectures during these Newwws! days.
