Stuck at home, in bed, making an exciting variety of unpleasant chesty noises. Be glad this isn’t an audio blog. Here are some things that have caught my eye:

- [Twitter Media](http://media.twitter.com/) – A blog and set of advice from Twitter to journalists about getting the most from the service. - [Do veteran journalists carry an inherent bias?](http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/technology/shanerichmond/100004911/journalistic-bias-and-the-danger-of-knowing-too-much/) And does social media help redress this? - [Facebook’s new Like stream](http://www.allfacebook.com/2010/04/facebooks-new-like-button-and-the-anonymized-like-stream/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+allfacebook+%28Facebook+Blog%29) – I think this is more significant than it sounds; it’s the first major attempt to aggregate and gain value from high volume activity streams - While we’re on the subject of Facebook, they have [new community-managed pages](http://www.allfacebook.com/2010/04/facebook-launches-community-pages-and-basis-of-open-graph-api/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+allfacebook+%28Facebook+Blog%29) and the beginning of a social graph API - And here’s an interesting essay on [books, bookshops, Amazon and ebooks](http://www.brianmicklethwait.com/index.php/weblog/comments/you_know_where_you_are_with_a_book_usually/).
