The Biz: Fear Not the Internet; Web 2.0 Tools for Journos

It's a tough time for newsrooms, but some journos are using the web to do exciting stuff. Here are some examples: CopyCamp: An Unconference for News Organizations (the idea is to "turn the newsroom into a community center, so news outlets can work with their audience to tackle community issues"), the Carnival of Journalism project, which offers tons of resources and good discussion of the way forward for media (see here for lots of stuff on student journalism), and these interesting discussions at on linking and social networking for journalists. I've posted these and other links in my "resources" box for "CAR, Web 2.0 and Citizen Journalism" in the right-hand column of this page.
