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

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.

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