Join The Carnival Of Journalism!

By Benét J. Wilson, DJTF co-chair, Online Managing Editor-Business Aviation, Aviation Week Group

Editor’s note: The Digital Journalism Task Force is joining with Knowledgewebb for a FREE webinar: 10 Steps to a Tech-Savvy You on Jan. 26 2-2:45 pm EST.  This webinar will outline the 10 steps — and critical websites, social networks and gear — to help you become more tech savvy. You’ll get complete notes as well as a primer on how to manage information overload.  The webinar is free, but you must register to attend.

I am a big fan of Google Reader, thanks to Mark Luckie of the 10000 Words blog.  My Reader is broken down into different folders on the topics I like to cover.  One of my must-read blogs is Digi Dave, written by David Cohn, founder of Spot.Us and a Reynolds Journalism Institute fellow.  The Digi Dave blog’s tag line is Journalism is a Process, Not a Product.  He blogs extensively about new media and beyond.

Cohn earlier this month re-started the Carnival of Journalism (I joined), which asks people to blog about a specific topic.  This month’s topic, with posts due Jan. 21, was on The changing role of Universities for the information needs of a community.  You can see the complete roundup of posts here.  And below are links to some of my favorite posts from this topic. Enjoy!
