Adopt-a-Journalist

Andrew Murphie pointed out this Wired article on the fibreculture list - All the News That's Fit to Skewer. Puts a whole new spin on the idea of gatewatching... Andrew also mentions the work of Pierre Levy on collective intelligence - better read up on this, too.

The Power of Blogs

Someone on Slashdot pointed to this article on "Power Laws, Weblogs, and Inequality" by Clay Shirky. Very interesting stuff, and another indication (as if one were needed) of how blogs and similar interactive technologies are coming of age. I'm listing it here for further reference.
