The Outernet

No one’s quite sure where it’s going, but the net, and the use of video in particular is surging ahead. Here, David Dunkley Gyimah posits a personal vision of the evolving News net and skillset of multimedia journalists based around his interpretation of what he calls the Outernet.

Hyperlinked video, modular news, news apps around game theory, public digital displays, mobile films and interactive Multimedia video journalism are some of the parameters he plays around with as a lecturer and studying a PhD.

David has twenty years experience in the media, working for the likes of Newsnight, Channel 4 News, ABC News South Africa and with Jon Staton, former head of TV at Saatchi and Saatchi. He was one of the first NUJ videojournalists (journalists who shoot and edit their own films) in the UK at Channel One and is a recipient of three international awards in recent years for online news site design, videojournalism and ideas about the web with a fellowship from the American Press WeMedia Institiute.

David’s experience has meant he’s spoken widely around the world about his work; which includes consulting with the UK Press Assciation and FinancialTimes devising programmes to turn newspaper journalists into videojournalists.

He’ll be showing a short film about multimedia and examples of his work.
