Why Full Text Feeds Actually Increase Page Views (The Freakonomics Explanation) From the TechDirt guys--a pretty compelling argument. I've had a full feed for awhile now...but since I never had a short feed, I'd be interested to see if the TechDirt guys are right
Blogging is IT, not Journalism? from Adam, who works for a business publication. So funny! yet so true! When tell folks I'm a professional blogger, I'm always asked IT questions, too. Adam's also got a great sense of irony :-) (via Mark Hamilton)
The Story of O Mark Hamilton baits the perverty-search crowd and gets them to read a very good piece on how journalist's views on "objectivity" are outdated.
First Amendment Protects Posting of Unlawful Video: The court ruled that the First Amendment prevents law enforcement officials from interfering with an individual's Internet posting of an audio and video recording of an arrest and warrantless search of a private residence, even though the individual had reason to know the recording was made illegally. the case involved is Jean vs. Massachusetts State Police who got very upset when Worcester political activist Mary T. Jean posted an incrminating video on her site (Jean's been openly critical of former Worcester d.a. John Conte.)Sometimes it's only through "illegally" recording something that one can find the truth. This is an important decision and will more than likely impact all sorts of video, going all the way up to YouTube.
