The Sites in their Sights

    So which are the regular websites visited by the big names at the MIT Center for Future Civic Media conference? I asked people like Jay Rosen, JD Lasica, Amy Gahran, Paul Grabowicz, Henry Jenkins and others to share their favorites.

    Surveying ten or so folks shows that top of the list is Jeff Jarvis’ BuzzMachine. It’s followed closely by Amy Gahran’s E-Media Tidbits and Jay Rosen’s Pressthink.

    Dan Gilmor, Romanesko and Mark Glaser’s MediaShift are also popular online destinations.


    Also mentioned were:
    Dave Winer’s Scripting News
    Doc Searles
    Steve Outing
    JD Lasica’s Social Media
    Online Journalism Review
    Dave Weinberger’s Joho
    Mindy McAdams
    Ethan Zuckerman
    Fred Wilson
    Ryan Sholin Invisible Inkling
    Charlie Beckett
    Henry Jenkins Aca-fan
    Convergence Culture Consortium (at MIT)
    Danah Boyd
    Terry Heaton

      Wow, I’m really honored! Thanks! Of course, Tidbits is a group effort, we have an extensive global team of contributors. I’ll be sure to pass the good news on to them — and to the Poynter Institute, which hosts Tidbits.
