The NPPA gave him an award this year: "The J. Winton Lemen Award was given to Joe Weiss, developer of Soundslides. 'Your development of the Soundslides program has enabled countless photographers to cross the bridge into multimedia, and encouraged growth and creative storytelling' Calzada said. 'Soundslides has been a major contributor to the growth of multimedia storytelling in newsrooms across the country.'" ... but he really deserves a Pulitzer for online innovation. Adrian Holovaty should get it the following year.

I hope that someday one of these journalism organizations will give Joe a big prize, in honor of the amazing contribution he has made to visual storytelling. Thanks to Joe, hundreds or thousands of journalists can learn the pacing and other techniques necessary to engage the audiences of the 21st century. Thanks to Joe, talented others who would be tied up doing production are free to do more challenging work, because Joe invented a tool that anyone in the newsroom can learn to use.

Joe Weiss also deserves major props for creating Soundslides (which is the tool we used in our bronze-prize winning entry, Train Jumping). We had a really, really tight deadline and were notified of the project late in the game. Without Soundslides, there is no way we would have been able to pull off the production and concentrated on the scripts, storylines and editing. So thanks, Joe! Will
