Some great examples of ways to show yourself off on the internet. Sarah put a lot of time into sourcing these fine CVs, I know, I sit next to her.
I always encourage new journalists to set up a blog/portfolio site and join LinkedIn and Journalisted. About.me is a useful addition.
It's also good to see a mind-bending example, too.
An interesting development from Twitter at a time when Twitpic is calming its users after changing its terms and conditions and Citizenside launches Zuu.li.
Twitter bought Tweetdeck but hasn't swallowed up one of the third party picture services, no, it's joined forces with Photobucket.
I'm not a huge fan of Photobucket, I'm a Flickr person who dallies occasionally with Picasa.
Zuu.li is an interesting proposition from Citizenside. Ordinary people are taking newsworthy photographs all the time. Isn't it fair to make sure they get some money for it? On the other side of the coin there are many professional photographers, particularly those working in regional news, who are being made redundant because management think photographs can be taken by anyone.
A great example of a Googlemap from hyperlocal Blog Preston. It's newsworthy and has a long tail because it will be of constant interest to users, particularly if it's maintained.
It will be interesting to see if this takes off. Buttons to tweet or share on Facebook are obviously useful, but +1 seems a little fruitless at the moment, unless it links to the items I share via Google reader. Enhancing search ability makes it ripe for abuse.
