Is the media becoming a wire service?

The case for massive editorial investment that only benefits the on-platform readership will weaken. The big publishers — at least those that sell scale to advertisers rather than subscriptions to a loyal audience — will become like wire services that operate across many platforms. And like the wire services of today, that will make them absolutely essential, but it will also keep them from being as experimental as was possible when they controlled their own platforms

Full Bleed: Bowling Is a Purgatorial Pastime

Locker room

It’s a “pastime” in the truest sense of the word in that only a species with so much time to pass could have devised and named it. It’s a sport/game/leisure activity so simple that I always feel vaguely self-conscious actually explaining it out loud: “Well, you, um, try to knock down pins with a ball.” And as a subject, it is probably undeserving of hard contemplative thought or, more germane to what you’re looking at right now, an exploration of its universe via words and photographs.

Cairo-based photojournalist Roger Anis decided to confront the issue by making portraits of women next to the clothes they would wear on the streets, if only they felt safe enough. “I’m not facing harassment myself as a man,” he says, “but when your dear friends are facing it, your girlfriend is facing it, or your mother or sister is facing it, you feel so helpless.”

She shot some in pairs, and several group portraits. The shoots could be intense, with lots of laughing, crying and hugging, but Demme says having several women at each shoot helped put the women at ease, that “as each woman saw the next woman doing it, they knew how to handle themselves.” She also shot video interviews, and encouraged the women to support and converse with each other.
