After 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.
