Things I’ve been meaning to link for a while:
- Dan Blank points out that the lesson of the exposure of Fake Steve Jobs is that journalists can really inovate, if given the chance.
- Scoble gives an idea of the competition and technology behind live-blogging events – something that journalists can do to really add value for their readers.
- Talking of innovation, no magazine editor would have approved a spread of technology unboxing pictures – yet they’re hugely popular on the net. Conventional wisdom? Not so wise.
- I keep telling people that Alexa is a load of old tosh.
- Should stories be comprehensible without following the links? It depends on context, of course. Posts like this are all about the links, but any serious writing should use links for additional information, but be whole in their own right.
