Monday musings

Some links for the day…

James Rainey of the LA Times notes that the nonprofit news venture Voice of San Diego “shows how investigative journalism can be done for relatively cheap. They’re even having fun.”

David Cohn, a prototypical 20-something journalist who started Spot.Us (and who also gave this class a nice endorsement last semester), has a new idea for newspapers: how about a newsroom cafe to encourage public input? “Aside from being a revenue stream (coffee, bagels, etc) it would create a deeper connection between the news organization and the public. Could story tips be garnered this way? Perhaps it would be a great way to meet and encourage citizen journalism partners.”

— From the U.K., a story on how Washington journos are using Twitter. Some good links in there if you’re looking to follow some big-name reporters.
