Rosen on blogging

Go here for a transcript of a live chat with NYU prof Jay Rosen on blogging pointers, via Poynter. As you'll see, while anyone can create a blog, there's a lot more involved in making a success of it.

Among his tips:

"It is best to learn to be a great linker, and from that become a thinker. One of the simplest forms I would teach students is 'the round-up post,' pulling together the best of what's online on a recent controversy (Gingrich calling the judge a racist, for example). And from those posts students can learn to think about.... what's missing in this conversation? That is the next post!"
