Joe Weiss talks to Poynter about Soundslides

Joe Weiss, the photojournalist/programmer behind Soundslides, tells Poynter all about it:

“I think that if you just started to do them, the audio slideshow is gonna take about four or five times what it would have taken just to do the assignment visually. … I think what we’re seeing in the industry right now, is that the people who learn these skills, add these skills to their bag, they’ll get on an assignment where they have more time, or they’ll really listen to the assignment and say, wow, there’s great audio here, this could be a great narrative. Then they jump on those.”
