The Future of Context

At this week’s South by Southwest Interactive  conference one of the questions being asked is how journalists will provide context that shows readers the big picture of a story, not just the little snippets that get posted online.   Several people over the past few months have suggested that the future of journalism lies in reviving the lost art of storytelling – not fiction, but the deep story that will grab you, pull you in and maybe teach you a thing or two in the process.  NPR’s Matt Thompson (a former Poynter staffer), has been interested in this idea for some time time, and Poynter blogged about his discussion on the “Future of Context”.
