When you let a day or two go by without blogging, the good stuff piles up. Hence, a second edition today.
- Newspaper Roundup: Online Revenues Remain Positive, While Print Decline Continues. May numbers are starting to trickle out and it’s becoming same old-same old for newspapers.
- The False Choice of New Media OR Old Media. Jim Long writes that it’s about creating value and community regardless of the label slapped on it. Agreed.
- Free online screen capture tool. I’ve been using Snapz Pro for screencasts and am quite happy with it, but I’ll have to give this a try. (Wouldn’t it by ironic, now we can all afford massive harddrives for all our apps, if all the software wound up online?)
- Telling stories with sound. I’ll be signing up for this NewsU course.
- State of the art. Alan Mutter remembers those old “newsmen” Humphrey Bogart and Robert Redford in discovering that the new multi-everything, productive newsrooms may not be capable of producing what the old ones did.
- Bloggers becoming a magnet for lawsuits. Mathew Ingram on the realities of being a citizen publisher. The bottom line is, if you’re going to publish anything, get yourself some grounding in the law.
- Podcast wins first-ever Emmy Award. Who could have predicted that headline three years ago?
- Is New York Times Print Ad Revenue Declining By Double Digit Percentage? Scott Karp does the math so I don’t have to.
