Ten blogs that deal with the technical stuff that power news sites (and journalism)


Its quite the rage these days to talk and write about the technology that is used to give a cutting edge to journalism and keep news sites going - and many journalists are besotted with the idea of turning into hackers or taking up data journalism big-time.

So, in case you have a fancy for things technological, then you might find this list of blogs/sites useful. (Cross-post from my blog)

Lots really. I'll stop with two!

Google Refine  - its a really good tool for journalists because it makes it somewhat easy to clean up data. 

But the most useful tool I've used - for journalism or otherwise - is a simple Firefox add-on called Scrapbook; helps you save web pages locally, add annotations, edit out parts and so on.

Thanks for this - it's great to hear about more media resources.

 

What are your favourite tech tools for journalism? I have looked into Qluso and Spotify recently.
