Virtual Reality and Journalism Discussion

Your thoughts from NYTimes VR stories:
-Which one(s) did you watch? What worked? What didn’t work?

My suggestions for how to think about VR and journalism (and every technological gadget/application to come in the future):

1. Explore and experiment

2. Learn from other reporters who are trying it

3. Question the ethics

4. Try it yourself — maybe even for your profile assignment
