Good Reading to get Started

Hi Class,

Looks like there is still a little trouble with Angel so I thought I would post the reading assignment for this week here.

The 3 key parts of news stories you usually don’t get
Great post from Matt Thompson (NPR Argo network). You should also follow him on Twitter.

The Imperatives of the Link Economy by Jeff Jarvis (J-school at CUNY)
Jarvis is a great thinker on all things journalism and the Internet. This post on how links work is great background on how the Internet works.

New rule: Cover what you do best. Link to the rest
More from Jarvis.

Help Me Explain Twitter to Eggheads by Jay Rosen (NYU J-school)
Rosen lays out a more theoretical framework for his serious journalism focused use of Twitter. His feed is excellent.

This is good place to start if you are just joining the social media revolution.
