Trying to ‘survive and thrive’ in journalism

A crash course EVERYONE in journalism needs…

Last night I started reading a little, 128-page book that was sent to me in the mail early in the fall semester. “Journalism 2.0: How to Survive and Thrive” by Mark Briggs (assistant managing editor for interactive news at The News Tribune in Tacoma, Wa.) covers a range of topics that are pertinent to the modern reporter.

Some of the material has just been a review, but I have also gleaned many interesting facts and bits of advice that have spurred a number of ideas for The Miami Hurricane.

Here’s a list of topics I’ve leafed through thus far: RSS feeds, Web 2.0, tools and toys, new reporting methods, how to blog, how to report news for the Web and digital audio and podcasting.
