Top multimedia projects of 2008

A great round-up of impressive multimedia projects from Regina McCombs of Poynter Online, including this on the economic downturn from the Washington Post and this on the US election from the New York Times, alongside some interesting map-based story telling about storms and the effects of a tornado on a community.

No wonder a major US survey has revealed that the web has overtaken newspapers as a news source and is closing on the leader - TV.

Which, along with the increasing number of publishers on both sides of the Atlantic that are scaling back their print products or even going entirely online, leads Journalcetera to comment: "Traditional journalism revenue models have collapsed in the face of the internet where users expect to get news and other information for free."
