Blog Post #1

I generally really liked this project by graduate students at University of British Colombia’s Journalism school. The idea was to show the various effects of the shrimp industry in southeast Asia, and it incorporated writing, video, photography, an interactive timeline, and much more. Overall, the site was interesting and looked really nice, but there were a few features that were difficult to find. One thing I wish this site had was a more interactive and philanthropical angle. I think news like this is important, and it wouldn’t have been difficult for the journalists to include suggestions or means for readers to help the issue at hand. I think it would be cool if we could come up with a topic that not only exposes a problem but also provides possible directions and means for readers to participate in alleviating the problem.
