Wednesday night, I’ll be speaking with Steve Sloan’s New Media class at San Jose State University.
I’m planning to show off some of the best of your work.
I’m looking for online news sites and projects that stray from the traditional definition of news.
I’m assuming these journalism students get enough Gloom & Doom handwringers from other sources, and I have no intention of discouraging anybody from getting into this business, which needs all the help it can get.
So, here’s a list of links. Add your favorites in the comments.
- Politifact – St. Petersburg Times & Congressional Quarterly
- Everyblock – Knight News Challenge project
- Flight Delays – Las Vegas Sun
- Marketplace – LJWorld
- City Room – NYTimes
- Election headlines – KnoxNews & Publish2
- Beatblogging – NewAssignment.net & various news organizations
I’m really just scratching the surface here, and notably absent are any multimedia tools and examples. Add your favorites in the comments.
