Beyond 800 Words: Prototyping New Story Formats for News
"News on the internet is largely served up as 500 to 800-word articles - a legacy of newspapers. Although the digital article has been enhanced and improved with new technologies, it still works on the assumption that 'one size fits all'. BBC R&D is developing new story formats for news that are more effective than conventional video or article formats. I have written elsewhere about the current landscape of digital news. We think there might be better things."

Catwigs: A conversation with your project
"One very direct, sensible question to ask about an idea is “does it actually solve a problem?”. If it doesn’t, why are you doing it? Valid reasons include “to have fun” or “because I like it”, but what if they’re not there? Like wigs for cats, many ideas do not solve a problem. Cats don’t need wigs."

Five things I’ve learned being on an innovation team
"For just under two years now I’ve been a “Digital Guerrilla”, working as part of a team of six in Birmingham, created by the BBC to “pilot and prototype new storytelling ideas”, and help the broadcaster to “engage with its audiences and to deliver unforgettable content”. I’m leaving this month for a new role, but wanted to share some learnings from being embedded inside a huge organisation and being tasked with—that dreaded word—innovation."
