I’m not doing a very good job of writing up some of the stuff I’ve been reading recently but still wanted to draw them to your attention:
- A behind the scenes look at the launch of The Guardian’s Free Your Mind project
- The Sun is planning on using MySpace, a fairly recently acquired property of News International, to boost readership:
- SocialSim – a blog covering social software and online gaming that I recently discovered
- US newspaper site "combines citizen journalism with traditional journalism" (disclaimer – I haven’t clicked to see whether the site itself lives up to the hype)
- The BBC’s Kevin Anderson on how it’s becoming difficult to differentiate between the audience and the author.
- "ads offer to swap rent for sex" (Ok, ok, I’m a google search result tart)
- American media giant NBC buys iVillage
- Collaborative Filtering Research Archive
- Nebraska court reportedly asserts jurisdiction over case involving photos posted online in California and despite no other link (previously, most courts would have asserted jurisdiction by showing, for example, that a website was trying to reach customers in the state where the claim was being made or on the basis of the harmed individual’s "personal jurisdiction" – something that, apparently, is called the Zippo Test) than the claimant being in Nebraska.
