A week of links is a long time, but I’m behind by four whole weeks. There were about 60 outstanding, but they’ve settled down to this lot. I’m rather old fashioned in doing this manually

Journalism:
Richard Sambrook on the 4 types of citizen journalism and also tells us that ‘control doesn’t scale’. I’m still (happily) thinking about that.
Charlie Beckett on the maturing revolution in journalism: “mainstream and citizen media are increasingly mixing and working together”
Tom Scotney is turned off.

Government:
David Price teaches me the term “lightweight web”. Thanks!

Other Media:
Nesta encourages film to go digital (with £££).
Potentially juicy job at ScreenWM (closes 24 April 2008)
If Charles Dunstone is king does that make the BPI Cnuts?
Web:
Services not sites.
Generosity and shutting up.
Cory on 17 ways to lure bloggers.
The Observer on the fact that the web isn’t fat enough. This bit boggled me noddle:

An ‘exabyte’ is 1.074 billion gigabytes. Two exabytes equal the total volume of information generated in 1999. The internet currently handles one exabyte of data every hour.

Locals:
Dubber – ‘…cos every little thing is gonna be alright’.
Charlotte on why mums currently socially network online not off.
Aeioux on enterprise.

Neighbourhoods:
Streetsize -social networking for your neighbourhood.
Upside down
The big picture but littler.<!–

Learning:
The School of Everything gets more. Yay.

Pleasure:

Other stuff:
Charlotte Green made me laugh.
Blimey and coo and thank you.
