Kudos to Maureen Judge
It’s not strictly PR, but it is communication, communication as in documentary filmmaking. So, a quick shout out to Maureen Judge, whose documentary film, My Millenial Life, won the Canadian Screen Award. Maureen is not only a talented film maker, but she also is Martin’s wife. And Martin enjoys basking in Maureen’s aura.
Instagram Hyperlapse telescopes event videos
Hyperlapse, a new Instagram app enables users to speed up videos up to 12 times the speed in which they were taken. This should prove to be a boon for people staging events who want to produce behind-the-scenes, preparing for the event, or other kinds of videos capturing a longer time span.
Struggling with fake news and bridging the perspective chasm
We’ll be honest. Gini, Martin and Joe would all self-identify as progressive in our political perspective. And yes, we’re struggling with the challenge of fake news and the decline of traditional news organizations.
In our struggle with fake news, we move past the problem with social algorithms that lead to its distribution and the measures being taken, finally, by Facebook and other platforms to deal with it. We have to understand the lived experience and perspective of those who reject the relevance of the facts that are advanced. We need to listen to one another, engaging in a dialogue to find understanding and common ground.
Yep, it’s three liberals struggling with the challenge of fake news.
