Recommended links for the weekend:
- A course idea pitched to the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University: a journalism entrepreneurship class with a twist. The school would create a corporation that invested in the student’s projects in exchange for 70% ownership. They’d help incubate the business with the eventual goal of selling the successful ones.
- Primer on how to curate content on the web, instead of just moderating user generated content (tks Megan!)
- Four developers make up 25% of the recently-launched Texas Tribune’s staff. This will be a site to watch for sweet projects. (Related - TexasTribune: Our amazing site developers would want us to add– this site could not have been coded in 3 wks without #django.)
- Shameless self-promotion: CoPress had a pretty terrific write-up of our progress to date on Poynter on Monday, and I had the fortune to join Joe Cefoli of The Fairfield Mirror on a WordPress Tavern podcast this week to talk about their migration and relaunch.
