The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas has published another cyberjournalism manual. “Cómo escribir para la Web” was written by Guillermo Franco with the purpose to be a guide for Latin America journalists, but that it might be useful for all of those who speak Spanish.

You can download the .pdf file for free here.

Franco’s new book presents practical examples about writing for online publications, as well as research from other sources. He considers it to be more than just a manual, but rather a starting point for a more comprehensive guide about writing for the Web, with contributions from journalists throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Already, several colleagues who participated in the project have begun a discussion group in Facebook about “How to write for the Web.”

“This document will serve as part of the answer to the journalist training needs in Latin America. It follows the same path and philosophy of other efforts supported by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas,” said Rosental C. Alves, founder and director of he Knight Center.

Onde encontrar… | Where to find…


Dois posts em dois sites diferentes para explorar:

o ReadWriteWeb dá uma série de links para fontes de informação na web;

-e Robin Good criou uma lista para 66 (!!!) sites onde podemos ir buscar imagens de borla para o nosso blog;

Levem uma pá e uma lanterna.

Two posts in two different blogs to explore:

– ReadWriteWeb gives us a bunch of links to some open data sources;

-and Robin Good created a list of 66 (!!!) sites where we can find free photos for our blog;

A word of advice: take a shovel and a lantern.

In Bret’s story, he mentioned some of the common data sources currently available, like the US Census Bureau’s map data and the Reuters corpus, but his commenters came up with a few more. (See? This is why blog comments matter).

In addition, as CNet and Ryan Stewart’s blog spread the story, more people chimed in with suggestions. And of course, the Hacker News guys had some more ideas themselves.

So what did everyone come up with? A lot of data sources are already freely available on the net, as it turns out, if you just know where to look. Here’s a summary, do you have anything to add?

Where to Find Open Data on the Web


Finding quality images and photos for complementing an important article, essay or news report is already a challenge for many. Imagine when the goal is not only to find good images, but also to find some that you could openly and freely use without needing to pay royalties or one-time publishing rights.

Domínio Público-Biblioteca Digital

Portal Domnio Público - Biblioteca digital desenvolvida em software livreO governo brasileiro criou, em Novembro de 2004, uma biblioteca digital. O objectivo era “disponibilizar informações e conhecimentos de forma livre e gratuita, busca incentivar o aprendizado, a inovação e a cooperação entre os geradores de conteúdo e seus usuários, ao mesmo tempo em que também pretende induzir uma ampla discussão sobre as legislações relacionadas aos direitos autorais – de modo que a “preservação de certos direitos incentive outros usos” -, e haja uma adequação aos novos paradigmas de mudança tecnológica, da produção e do uso de conhecimentos.” (Fernando Hadad, Ministro de Estado da Educação)
Entre as obras disponíveis há trabalhos muito interessantes de investigação em Comunicação (que é o que nos faz mais mexer por estes lados), de acesso livre e gratuito (isso ainda nos faz mexer mais.) Visitem e explorem. Há rumores que pode fechar por não ter utilizadores suficientes.
