‘The New New Media News’: A New Site For Discussing Digital Storytelling Landscape

Scott Porad, the former CTO of Cheezburger who is now leading product development at Rover.com, has launched a site called The New New Media News to serve as a “central location for reading news about the new media, and seeing examples of new media done well.”

The site — kind of like a Subreddit — lets you post, share and comment on the evolving landscape of online media and digital storytelling. You can post a link, discussion topic, photo or video to the site under the category of commentary, examples or Q&A. Each item can be upvoted or downvoted. Each user has a profile, and the ability to be followed. And there’s a handy bookmarklet that you book in your bookmarks bar so that you can easily share any links on the web.

Because the site is new, content is a little sparse, but I could see this site evolving into a valuable resource for anyone obsessed with digital storytelling trends.
