As you know, you have a standing assignment to read the Nieman Journalism Lab website, especially “This Week in Review,” which is posted every Friday. I don’t always bring it up in class, but this week’s is especially meaty, and I would like you to be prepared to talk about the first three items tomorrow — on Facebook and the open Web, Twitter as a breaking-news tool and the New York Times’ success with its online paywall.
We will also begin our three-week unit on video tomorrow. At the very least, I want to make sure we all have a usable video camera. Video will bring us right up to spring break.
