A few very quick response to the NUJ furore, as I’m back from holiday today, and a longer response will have to wait for me to clear my inbox at work.
The NUJ & Social Media: A Few Follow-ups
First up, thank you to everyone who got involved in the comments in the last few posts – and I do mean everyone. Conversation and debate are at the heart of blogging, and this debate is certainly moving forwards – [into the Guardian’s blogs](http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/organgrinder/2009/feb/23/nuj-blog-battle-journalists), as it turns out.
The discussion has also spread onto the [NUJ New Media Mailing list](http://mailman.journonet.co.uk/mailman/listinfo/newmedia). Salina Christmas has provided a rather nice [visual guide](http://sothisischristmas.wordpress.com/2009/02/23/nuj-social-media-debate/) or [two](http://sothisischristmas.wordpress.com/2009/02/24/still-on-the-new-media-debate/) to the discussion over on her blog.
And lastly, Glyn Moody, an ex-NUJ member, pinpoints far more neatly than I have managed the [opportunity the NUJ has missed here](http://opendotdotdot.blogspot.com/2009/02/nudging-nuj-towards-bethlehem-20.html).
More detailed comments to follow later.
