The SPJ Digital Media Handbook now online!
Are you a journalist looking to pick up some practical multimedia skills? Are you tired of reading about all the cool new stuff in this new-media world and thinking, “I wish I knew how to do that”?
Look no more. SPJ has just what you need.
The SPJ Digital Media Committee — the group of people who contribute to this blog — has published its Digital Media Handbook, Part I. And it’s available here, now, online — and at the low, low price of FREE. (Download it for free as a PDF directly from this site, or you can see it here on Scribd.com.)
Want to know how to Twitter? Start a Facebook page? Make an online slideshow? Use Google Wave? Screencast? You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers — on those subjects and more.
We hope to bring you more in a second part later in the year.
Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before. Join us as we fight for the public’s right to know as an SPJ Supporter. Or, if you’re a journalist, we welcome you to stand with us as a Professional, Student or Retired Member.
