New additions to the 'Recommended' list

Written by Adrian Holovaty on September 17, 2003

Recently I've added a number of sites to the "Recommended" list on my home page:

  • Digital Deliverance weblog offers insight from one of the most respected folks in the online-journalism biz, Vin Crosbie. In particular, Vin's recent entry about Web standards (originally posted to the online-news list) is one of the most eloquent pro-standards pieces I've read.
  • CyberJournalist.net is a well-done weblog covering well-done online journalism.
  • Poynter's E-Media Tidbits has been a favorite site of mine for years, but it only recently began pinging weblogs.com, which is a prerequisite for inclusion in my blogroll. (Pssst: That's actually my automated script doing the pinging, because the Poynter folks declined to respond to my numerous e-mail requests.)
  • Daily Python URL is, well, a fix for my newfound Python addiction.
  • Kaye Trammell is a blog-savvy online journalism teacher at the University of Florida. She's actually working on a dissertation about celebrity weblogs. Always has interesting things to say from an academic perspective.
  • Interactive Narratives is a new group weblog devoted to online storytelling. Disclaimer: I'm a part-time contributor.
  • Textually.org has a great handle on innovative uses of SMS, inside and outside of a journalism context.
  • Finally, Jay Rosen's PressThink is only a few days old, but it has jumped out of the gate with a number of outstanding entries. Written by an eloquent NYU journalism professor and press critic, it aims to "discover the consequences in the world that result from having the kind of press we do."

Jennifer: I agree that Hypergene is an outstanding site. It's been in my blogroll since it was launched last October. The list of sites above are only *new* additions to my "Recommended" list, which can be viewed in its entirety on this site's home page.

I thought your readers might want to know about Gotham Gazette's Newcomer Weblogs, because the judges specifically cited them as one reason that Gotham Gazette won top honors at the Online News Association this year -- 2003 Online Journalism Award for General Excellence -- and because they were originally your idea.
