Lynn Crosbie’s latest Globe column is a nice, lay-person’s introduction to two magazines that seemingly cover the same topics—Wired> and Shift.
One of my bugbears is flat online journalism where the story is presented in one dimension—with the token link occasionally added. The Canadian War Museum, of all places, has a “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style piece that serves as an excellent example of what good online journalism could be.
In “Armoured Warrior”, you play the commander of a Sherman tank in the final days of the Normandy Campaign of 1944. The narrative piece is enhanced with sound effects, voice actors, archival video and a decent enough storyline to pull me through it three times (the first two times I “killed” my crew, though).
