Insert Meta Joke Here

At the risk of really falling down the rabbit hole of self-aggrandizement, indulge us in this one post where we blog about bloggers blogging about this blog and the mirror blog on Wired.com, Storyboard. Sure Jason, Nancy, and I have pitched this experiment here and there to drum up a little publicity, but who knew it would get to this:

MINDFREAK: Wired magazine keeping an ongoing Charlie Kaufman-esque meta-blog about the experience of doing a story on Charlie Kaufman. Now I suppose I should concoct some sort of narrative about what's going on inside my mind as I link to that blog on this blog and blllaaaaagh, the Internet just exploded.

Editors at Wired are removing the curtains, so to speak, on the whole process of creating a feature article, in a new blog called Storyboard. It's a profile of a profile. The article in the spotlight, a profile of Charlie Kaufman, takes curious readers through the idea, the pitch, the back-and-forth emails, negotiating talent access, and the shaping of the story. It's a very candid way to use the web to expose the journalistic process, and a cool risk worth taking by Wired

We at Wired are engaged in what we think is a pretty cool experiment. We've just started a blog called Storyboard, and on it we're documenting, in near-real-time, the process of conceiving, writing, editing, and designing a feature for our November issue. We're posting pretty much everything--internal emails, rough drafts, edit memos, PDFs of layouts, marked-up page proofs, etc.
The other cool thing? The story in question is a profile of Charlie Kaufman, the brilliant screenwriter behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, and Being John Malkovich. He's got his directorial debut coming out in October, and gave us unprecedented access. So anyone who's interested in his work may enjoy seeing how this piece comes together.

Storyboard is an almost-real-time, behind-the-scenes look at the assigning, writing, editing, and designing of a Wired feature. The Birth of Storyboard is a (minimally edited) video of the conversation that spawned the project. The feature--that will be published in November--is about screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. In the past he has woven the process of creating his work into the work itself, so Wired writer Jason Tanz thought it would make sense to do the same. Looking to promote his directorial debut, Kaufman has agreed to take part in the project.

Sounds like a promising peek behind the curtain at Wired.  I'll watch this for a while and see whether I can use it in my journalism classes.

An almost-real-time, behind-the-scenes look at the assigning, writing, editing, and designing of a Wired feature. You can see more about the design process on Wired creative director Scott Dadich's SPD blog, The Process. This is a one-time experiment, tied solely to the Charlie Kaufman profile scheduled to run in our November 08 issue.
The Blog Herald
Wired is blogging the creation of a feature story from beginning to end.
It's a fascinating look at how the process works from the very beginning - through storyboarding, the pitch, and the down and dirty logistics to actually making the feature happen.  The feature is about Charlie Kaufman and is scheduled in run in the November 2008 issue of Wired Magazine.

What if the Web was watching your every move? I don't mean the optional status updates of Twitter and FaceBook, or the location tracking of a GPS device. Kottke, by way of Snarkmarket, notes how Wired magazine has started an interesting experiment where they are posting photos, videos, and text to show how an article is created at the magazine. They will apparently post a draft of the article and fact-checking notes as they prepare the feature story (about writer Charlie Kaufman's transition into the director's chair) for a November issue. It's an example of how the Web can "twitterize" our lives in ways that a single medium, such as print or video, could never achieve.
