Ideas for the midterm

For your midterm paper assignment due Oct. 6, I’d like you to focus on a blogger or a website incorporating key elements of digital culture (remember the Deuze reading) and social media (think Web 2.0)—in essence, open-source sort of sensibilities. If you’re looking for ideas, you can find some by digging through these sites:

MediaShift

trade journals like CJR, AJR or OJR

Center for Citizen Media

Nieman Reports‘ 2007 issue on hyperlocal news

and a list of the top 100 blogs as ranked by Technorati

or, if you’re still stumped, here are a few exciting sites worth a look: citizen coverage of the presidential campaign via Huffington Post’s OffTheBus, hyperlocal news and info via EveryBlock, “crowdfunded” journalism via Spot.us, or get more ideas via NewAssignment.net.

… And while we’re at it, here are some examples (in terms of writing style) of the kind of case studies I’d like you to write:

Handmade 2.0

Gawker Media
