    Temporary tattoos? great idea :) and thanks for the write up @kathyschrier education is a good area to grow the TAO.

    These reports from the UK appear to be well formed — http://blog.e-democracy.org/posts/1078 — and include this observation: “We are still a bit of an outlier because we insist on e-mail publishing options for strong inclusion and the use of real names as the cornerstone for building community trust, ensuring greater influence with elected officials, and [...]

    Will AOL buying TechCrunch hurt the quality, even the integrity, of technology coverage? Consider this — Suzanne Choney of MSNBC.com reported:

    Heather Harde, TechCrunch’s CEO, said that the sale ”represents a compelling opportunity to extend the TechCrunch brand while complementing the great work of sites like Engadget and Switched,” which are also owned by AOL.

    Engadget and TechCrunch were direct competition, especially through TechCrunch’s CrunchGear site, until today. Also going head to head, until today: TechCrunch’s MobileCrunch site v. Engadget Mobile.

    Now AOL owns it all, and two of the top names in ”tech news” are going to ”complement” each other. Scoble calls this ”the end of an era in tech blogging.”

    Jacob, that’s a great point. The Seattle Times is first on the dais for news in our community. In fact I recently searched for “Seattle” and they were the number two result, after Seattle.gov! so their place in our community goes beyond the news. Considering how the search engines rank things, they’ve won a sort [...]

    ”We commonly call Twitter a “platform,” the better to emphasize its emptiness, its openness, its agnosticism. More properly, though, Twitter is a medium, with all the McLuhanesque implications that term suggests.”

    – Megan Garber of the Nieman Journalism Lab

    Garber asks what ”the new Twitter” means for ”new journalism.” Twitter have updated their interface in a major way, making them more than ever a news media platform.

    Garber observes: ”The Twitter.com of today, as compared to the Twitter.com of yesterday, is much more about information that’s meaningful and contextual and impactful. Which is to say, it’s much more about journalism.”

    See Garber’s article here http://www.niemanlab.org/2010/09/twitter-as-broadcast-what-newtwitter-might-mean-for-networked-journalism/

      My first impressions are good, but I wish the makeover included cool new ways to interact with lists. Scoble agrees. Here’s his initial take.

    Thanks, both of you for having this conversation here @mikefancher @johnhamer — This is the sort of good information usually exchanged in person, on the phone, or in email. With the conversation in this open format, anyone can benefit. I’ve seen some, similar benefit from Twitter, except for that 140 character limit getting in the way.

    And I’ll be picking up Blur.

    In reply to - mikefancher posted an update: Tom Rosenstiel and Bill Kovach, authors of The Elements of Journalism, have a new book coming out in November. It’s called Blur and is dedicated to helping citizens evaluate the quality and credibility of journalism in their lives. Should be a must read for those of us who care about true [...] · #

    @psessum good to see you here, Pete. These days it seems only an organized general public can manage watching the watchdogs. I’m glad WNC is here to help that along!
