One Man & His Blog

Weekend Coffee Reading

Lurking around in my browser tabs:

- [On Makers and Managers]( – good look at the tension between these two roles that should be familiar to most people in journalism - [The Death of Tag Clouds]( – this has been creating some debate internally at RBI. I still like ’em, but I never thought they were a navigation tool, just a visual means of displaying the “aboutness” of the site. - [Why Tumblr is Kicking Posterous’ Ass]( – insightful post on the difference between an engineered website and a designed one. - [Jeff Jarvis’s Cockeyed Economics]( – some good economic theory around paid content in here - [The Value of Blogging]( – anyone familiar with my job title knows that I’m contractually obligated to value blogging as a journalistic endeavour – but this post enumerates some of the reasons well. - [Posterous, the iPhone and Microjournalism]( – great account of using the iPhone and Posterous to report from abroad using a mobile device.
