  1. 5 Awesome Ways to Capture Screenshots: we are always looking for ways to punch up the graphics on our web sites and blogs.  This link for tools comes to us from the FriedBeef Tech blog.
  2. Five tips for training citizen journalists: I file this entry under “if you can’t beat em, train em.”  The Knight Digital Media Center offers tips on how best to do this as more publications — and citizens — are looking to the public for help.
  3. Wikileaks plans to make the Web a leakier place: this one somehow got lost in the shuffle, but the information is still good.  The site currently has dozens of records it says are documents that are classified, censored or otherwise opaque to the public record.
  4. The Beginner’s Guide to RSS: you know I can’t do this post without including something from my favorite, the 10000 Words blog.  Some of us take RSS feed for granted, but the blog breaks it down for newbies.
  5. 10 Simple Video Blog Ideas: as we all look to take our blogs to the next level, Blogging Tips offers amazingly simple ideas — illustrated by video — on how to create effective entries.
