One of the things that I’ve noticed about the “online space” is that so many people are so willing to share their expertise. And that’s the idea behind a relatively new site called Wired Journalists. Here’s the mission statement:
WiredJournalists.com was created with self-motivated, eager-to-learn reporters, editors, executives, students and faculty in mind. Our goal is to help journalists who have few resources on hand other than their own desire to make a difference and help journalism grow into its new 21st Century role.
As of this afternoon, there were 1,287 members of the site. Blog posts include such topics as “Using Google docs for reader feedback” and “Audacity track markers” (a post about how to use a Label Track to mark audio files for editing). Other posts feature queries from journalists trying solve some new media puzzles with the comments providing answers and suggestions.
I think I’ll join!
