This is a one month Art School project researching the effects of reading news online. The outcomes are varied and exploratory rather than commercial. I sought to investigate how people experience news through online sites rather than traditional media could effect a readers knowledge of the news.
Getting news online seems like a great idea, however due to the seriously flawed interaction models of most news websites, readers actually absorb very little information and only really get what they put in. Most readers will only skim read the search results and almost entirely ignore the rest of the content because it is not easy to get an oversight in the way you would with a newspaper.
