Why should I be the only one to get distracted, while working on the final paper for Reporting 2.0? Allow me to share my new-found favourite online distraction with you, fellow journalism students. It’s related to the topic of new media because it’s a creative use of interactive media.
If you click on the photos of cities around the world in this gallery (on boston.com/bigpicture) you can see the lights fade as they are turned off by individuals, governments, organisations, and corporations in 134 countries worldwide on March 26 for Earth Hour. (Not all 134 countries made it into this album. That’s probably a good thing, or else the paper I should be writing might really suffer.) I wish there was an interactive photo of the entire planet from space!
