Sorry, more good reading, for your spare time:
The blog by Kathleen McCoy, a Knight Fellow at Stanford. She's a McClatchy person learning about the online world. And she's using Lynda.com, the same stuff we've used some from Serena Fenton's class at UNC.
A report on who's succeeding with citizen journalism, from The Center for Citizen Media. It's been out at least since February, so you might've already seen it. Kathleen links to it from her blog. It's long, probably worth printing and reading off line. The link goes to a summary, where you can get a pdf.
