Tuesday Quick Hits
- Over at the Community Journalism Interest Group blog, Bill Reader has an interesting rundown of what's happening with some of the latest J-Lab funded New Voices citizen journalism projects.
- Looking for the right archive picture? UPI has put 300,000 pictures online for licensing. It includes up-to-date stuff, too, and has both royalty free and rights-managed images. You need to create a membership to find out the prices. (From Research Buzz)
- If you aren't paying attention to search engine developments as a journalist, then you're likely to get blindsided sometime in the future (sorry, but as things move online, search engines become a huge gorilla you have to learn to deal with). Pandia, the metasearch engine, now has a search site dedicated to news about search engines. (Thanks again, Research Buzz). Pandia also has a very good tutorial on how to conduct searches and another on search engine optimization (hate to say it, but that's something probably every budding copy editor should be familiar with).
- And a third from Research Buzz. If you're into movies, Flixfind is compiling a list of all the movie-related sites on the Internet.
