Hypertext and newswriting April 5, 2008

Posted by Robert Rich in symposium.

João Canavilhas of Universidade da Beira Interior (Portugal) presented his paper “Hypertext Newswriting Effects on Satisfaction, Comprehension and Attitudes”.

Instead of the typical inverted pyramid, Canavilhas proposed a ‘Tumble Pyramid’ consisting of a Base unit, explanation level, contextualization level and the exploration level. He empahasized that the important person is the reader not the journalist, and that information should be published immediately.
