Shane Richmond is asking for contributions to a list of classic blog posts on online journalism. For some reason my comments don’t seem to have gone through, so here’s my list of the essential reads for online journalists:
- For an overview of the forms and possibilities of online journalism: Jonathon Dube’s Online Storytelling Forms
- For a mind-blowing insight into the journalistic potential of computer technology: Adrian Holovaty: A fundamental way newspaper sites need to change
- For reflection on how the online news environment changes the nature of journalism: Dan Gillmor’s The End of Objectivity (Version 0.91)
- For reflection on journalism ethics in the MySpace/Facebook/UGC/digital doorstepping era: Robin Hamman’s posts virginia tech bloggers: approach and confirm or link and disclaim? and his coverage of a debate on virginia tech coverage
- For a sliding scale of ideas on how to involve the audience: Steve Outing’s The 11 Layers of Citizen Journalism
- For a succinct and clear explanation of moving from the TV mindset to an understanding of online video: Andy Dickinson: Moving from TV to Online
- For a quick list of tips when moving into video: Newslab’s Tips for Photographers
- For an outline of the possibilities of Flash for interactive storytelling, and experiences of its use: Mindy McAdams’ Flash journalism: Professional practice today
- For a step-by-step overview of how to treat a story in a multimedia way: Mindy McAdams’ Journalism stories: A multimedia approach Parts 1, 2 and 3.
- For a conceptual exploration of interactive storytelling: The Elements of Digital Storytelling
- I’ll agree with Richmond’s inclusion of Ross Mayfield’s post on his own blog: What makes wikis work
- And it pre-dates blogs, but answers very effectively that recurring question of “Is blogging/wikis/databases/broccoli etc. etc. journalism?”: G. Stuart Adam’s Notes Towards a Definition of Journalism

A British version of me? Eek, that’s scary!
Paul, I love your blog. Wish you’d post more often. This list is awesome. I’m going to link to it as soon as I can come up with a couple of posts you’ve missed.
Trouble is, I can’t think of any!
I wish I’d post more often, too, but for health reasons I’ve had to slow down!
