Mike Davis a picture editor judged a few contests and recently wrote a blog post about the word multimedia and why he thinks most of it is not good.

Some points he makes are valid but I wrote in my comments to him

"Maybe it is semantics with this word "multimedia"
Mike (I call it video storytelling with what I do) but I think it is the
mindset of the individual and the commitment to storytelling a newspaper has at
giving staff the time and resources to do it right.

Check out his blog and then read the comments. 

Glad he brought it up. Any discussion about multimedia or video storytelling can only be a good thing.
