New Dimensions in Distributed Journalism Through Dragon Slayer III
Proc. of the 7th Euromicro Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Processing, S. 112-118, IEEE Press, Madeira, Portugal, 1999-02


In a journalistic scenario new dimensions of cooperative feature writing are described. In order to compose a highly up-to-date article on economic events with global causes and consequences under the tight time constraints of a daily newspaper, by utilizing the geographic competence of correspondents and economic or political experts, their latest observations and views (in contrast to heavily using archived material, even for weekly magazines), novel forms of cooperative work, including distributed on-line writing of feature sections, would have to be supported by innovative distributed operating system services, in particular complex group-based authorization and authentication procedures. The related aspects of our distributed operating system DRAGON SLAYER III are presented, the utilization of services is explained in the scenario context and the authentication of all users and sites participating in the scenario is described. Outlines of ongoing and future work are also discussed.
