OMG! The Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke extradition saga and the ensuing anarchy unleashed across parts of the island have done more than put people on edge; it has also got them tweeting, texting, facebook-ing and BlackBerry messaging like nobody’s business.

“Oh no! What’s happening in Jamaica? This place is looking more like Iraq than my island paradise!” wrote one confessed Facebook addict in Kingston, in a post made on Wednesday.

Helen Shirley, a 36-year-old business owner from St Andrew said she gets most of her updates on the situation in Kingston from Facebook and messages from friends on her BlackBerry.

“When I get up in the mornings there are already dozens of messages on my BlackBerry. That’s how my friends and I keep in touch in this hard time. We send messages to each other to find out if each other are okay. Sometimes we get information about what’s happening on Facebook and on BlackBerry before I even hear it on the news,” she said.

A service called On the Ground News was recently launched on Facebook and already has more than 5,000 members. The aim of the service is for Facebook-ers across the island to share their thoughts on the extradition affair and for those close to the action to tell what they are witnessing.

And as the saga drags on, the word continues to spread across the Internet.

Christopher Coke, an accused Jamaican don who, it has been reported, hates the limelight, is now a bona fide Internet celebrity. A Google search for ‘Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke’ on Wednesday produced 2,530,000 results, many from International media houses like The New York Times and The Guardian newspaper in the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, a similar search for ‘Bruce Golding’ produced 274,000 results.

The US$3 million (J$195 million) expansion beginning next semester at the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) is expected to assist the unit in keeping pace with the new developments in journalism, according to Director, Drs.. Marjan de Bruin.

Speaking at the press launch for next week’s Caribbean Media Conference and Exposition and Caribbean Peer Awards at the Hilton Kingston hotel in New Kingston Thursday, Drs.. de Bruin said CARIMAC would phase in two planned masters and three undergraduate degrees over the next five years.

Online learning

The institution will also establish a distance-learning programme.

CARIMAC will start a new UNESCO-funded course in online journalism for practitioners beginning in May.

“Graduates in the English speaking countries now have this increased market thanks to the Internet and also, within the diaspora, there is this hunger for news from home,” explained Drs.. de Bruin of the potential for online journalism.

She acknowledged that the current convergence of media platforms online – including blogs, slide shows, video, radio, podcasts and so-called ‘citizen journalism’ -was a new phenomenon and just starting in Jamaica.

Right persons

She noted recent mergers such as The Gleaner Power 106 news, which has seen reporters simultaneously producing print and radio reports.

“The challenge is to find the right persons … but I can’t teach … we have to get people with sufficient experience to get this further and stay close to what is happening in the newsrooms,” she explained.

She said that Steve Ross, editor of BroadbandMagazine and a former lecturer at the prestigious Colombia Journalism School, whom she described as a ‘friend of CARIMAC’, had already pledged his involvement in the online course.
