Multimedia journalism, multi-constraints or multi-challenges ?

« If the human mind likes surfing, it gets quickly tired of floating. Hence the recurrent question : are those new journalists « Shivas or not Shivas » -to use one of their many labels- ? Or even more, can we name them « sherpas » ?

Not so simple, as the Hindu god they are ironically compared with : after all, the four arms of the Yogi are supposed to allow them to write, twitt, make a video, a sound, a photo, or animate a community! »
