I fear that I am edging closer to the dark rabbit hole of this becoming simply a link farm, something I definitely want to avoid. Daily work has kept me busy however and I truly have not had much time to take a longer look at some issues and events popping up lately. I’ll get into some deeper posting eventually, like the old days.
Due to my previous comment issue and the theme I was using not being supported any more, I decided to redecorate. Plus, being that I am talking about online journalism and the “future” of the medium, I thought it fitting that I have a more streamlined, futuristic theme. I’m quite pleased with it actually, though there are still some minor tweaks to make.
Some reading for today:

Honestly, his blog is the most comprehensive site I’ve seen covering topics such as, but are not limited to, Twitter and journalists, new media metrics and how to coerce your newsroom into accepting the online world. Some notable posts:
I’m kidding of course about packing it up, but good grief, Shawn has done a terrific job. Kudos to you sir!
