Manifesto and lists top Delicious journalism links

Weblog ManifestoAfter last week’s observation that users of the social-bookmarking site Delicious were turning to blogs to find (or at least save) news about journalism, I’ve been keeping an eye on the Delicious list of currently popular links tagged “journalism.” This week, a certain manifesto appeared twice in the top five list.

Instead of writing my own description of each link this week, I’m including descriptions written by other Delicious users. Visit their pages, or my Delicious page, to find more links that you might find interesting.

  1. Eleven Things I’d Do If I Ran a News Organization: “Great list by Dan Gillmor, including transparency, audience participation, linking and more. (via Dave Winer)” ewanspence
  2. Internet Manifesto: “Germany’s top bloggers have compiled a manifesto – a declaration which suggests principles of how journalism has changed and should work today. This is a great primer for students of digital journalism/new media to begin to get to grips with the changes in the media sector and approaches to journalism” pinowsky
  3. 10 Ugly truths about modern journalism: “Journalism was screwed before the advent of the internet:discuss” 37sechsblog
  4. Press Accuracy Rating Hits Two Decade Low: “Report and analysis of the continuing decline in confidence in “the media” h/t @patrickchareyre !” lidatsene
  5. The ‘Internet Manifesto’ bucks a trend and gets mainstream media attention: “Journalism students publish a manifest on how journalism needs to be approached differently. Applies incredibly well to marketing as well.” EugenioMenezes

For journalism, blogs top Delicious links

I often turn to social bookmarking site Delicious to find journalism-related links. I usually rely on my network’s journalism links, but recently visited the list of popular bookmarks tagged “journalism” by any Delicious users. One of the first things I noticed was that six of the links went to blog posts, compared to two articles, one guide and the transcript of one audio piece.

  1. Handbook of Journalism, a Reuters guide
  2. The Journalist’s Guide to YouTube a Mashable blog post
  3. Inside peek: How The New York Times uses blogs a VentureBeat blog post
  4. Google News shines a Spotlight on “in-depth” journalism a Nieman Journalism Lab blog post
  5. Taking The Plunge: How Newspaper Sites That Charge Are Faring, a paidContent article
  6. Top 10 Lies Newspaper Execs are Telling Themselves, a SimsBlog blog post
  7. Journalism’s biggest problems are not online: They’re inside, an Online Journalism Review blog post
  8. The post-daily world, a Sacramento News & Review article
  9. SEO lessons from Google News: How to promote your stories, straight from the bot’s mouth, a Nieman Journalism Lab blog post
  10. Why ‘GQ’ Doesn’t Want Russians To Read Its Story, an NPR transcript of an audio report
