香港Infographic的落後

服貿互動事件簿,好整齊,超好睇。

當台灣蘋果都有infographic的時候,香港現在還未起步實在太遲

這種類似懶人包的互動式事件簿,讓人對事態發展一目了然

誰對誰錯,誰感動誰哽咽誰落淚,誰打壓民眾誰漠視民意,通通放在你面前

當然,我們做紙媒,還是處於那種文字分析形勢的報道

也不是個個BUY這種ROUND UP式手法,覺得沒深度,只是為了搶眼球

但作為一個尚算年輕的普通讀者,這是一種易入口又容易掌握形勢的報道手法,總好過身邊親朋戚友連認識這場運動的興趣都沒有

對於一場長期又複雜的運動來說,Inforgraphic是最基本要做的,尤其是這幾年香港的社運和政治議題愈來愈多

至於深入分析,亦可另行想辦法將之變成有趣吸引的角度,再用不同文宣方法包裝,單靠一大堆文字,真係好難食落肚

這陣子我跟不同的社運人、學者、設計師、普通朋友傾談,發現他們都覺得,政改和佔中的宣傳和教育,還是脫離不了傳統框框

不是現場報道絕食或遊行,就是收風形式跑馬仔貼特首,但於他們的知識和深度增長,毫無幫助,更莫說加以分析思考

對於推動社會深入淺出了解政改真相,尋找政改的重心,為大眾提供佔中full picture,似乎做得不足

有時,媒體甚至被放風者或政商界牽著鼻子走

再者,事實上,不論老、中、青,每一代人的reading habit亦有所改變,年青一輩最明顯,而我老爸亦已學用ipad

在這個事實環境底下,我們可否放低一點「既得利益」,嘗試用創意衝破傳統媒體局限?還是,我們選擇坐以待斃?

我也真的好想問一個問題,究竟自己大、媒體大,還是社會進步和大眾知情權最大?
