Want a human filtered stream of blog postings from selected new-media-and-journalism blogs? Josh Braun, a journalist, researcher and teaching assistant at Cornell University, has created one.
“I’ve created a combined RSS feed, not of this site, but of around 30 cool new-media-and-journalism blogs from around the web. It will send out about 10 to 15 posts per day, and I’ll filter out off-topic posts, so you won’t have to read about career advice for young journalists, or what someone ate for breakfast.”
Hmm … I recently wrote about “career advice for young journalists.” Oh well. I only Twitter about what I eat for breakfast.
You can find out more about the feed at his Understudy site. He also has a personal site is Wide Aperture.
