It’s been a busy week here at Old Media, New Tricks. First, we posted a Q&A with Ryan Osborn, a producer at NBC’s Today Show. Next, we shared our 10 tips for Tweeting as your news organization. Last week, Daniel was featured on The Drill Down podcast, and he talked to the folks there about social media and the news business. Here’s a link to that. He also spoke on a social media-related panel at CES2009. And we rounded out the week with 5 tips to get started on Digg.
But there was, of course, lots of good posts from around the Web. Here are some of them:
Guillermo Bravo, of BestRank Search Marketing, wrote this great post on the types of stories that make the Digg front page.
Lisa Williams contributed this post for Placebloogger about clouds in journalism — computing, beats, you name it.
We were pumped after reading Gina Chen’s pep talk for journalists on her blog, Save the Media.
Looking for a job? Of course you are, just in case. Danny Sanchez discusses on his blog, Journalistopia, the best way to save your clips.
New York-based media critic Jay Rosen discusses the Web and how it weakens the authority of the press. Fascinating read.
