Blogging guides and training
Two items of note to bloggers, longtime and newbies: The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a legal guide for bloggers. Cory Doctorow writes, "EFF has released a long, comprehensive, accessible guide to the law and blogging, aimed at bloggers who are worried about protecting their sources' anonymity, about libel, about copyright and trademark infringement claims, and all the other legal risks that might stop a blogger from saying her piece."
Also, a newspaper in Boulder, CO is experimenting with citizen journalism through local neighborhood guides, and even offering free training for using the new tools. Steve Outing says, "The Daily Camera is trying out the in-person training route for its MyTown site. In its print edition, the paper is running full-color, half-page ads promoting a series of free seminars to introduce people to the new citizen-journalism site." (BoingBoing, Poynter)
