Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

February 4, 2011

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. As we look ahead to what’s next for Egypt, I really liked this slideshow at Salon featuring different protesters in Cairo telling us why they are there.

2. Here’s a superb analysis by Paul Carr at TechCrunch of the difference between old and new journalism.

3. And speaking of journalism, here’s my latest at Politics Daily on Wikileaks and the future of journalism.

4. This fascinating (and funny!) video at the Brainiac blog on explains the difference between the United Kingdom, Great Britain and the Commonwealth. It should be required reading for anyone – including yours truly – who thinks they get this, but actually don’t.

5. Equally compelling is the BBC’s new project – Dimensions – which shows you the human scale of events and places in history by mapping them onto your home address. (Hat tip: Very Short List)

6. I loved this piece by my colleague Carla Baranaukas over at Politics Daily on hiring a personal assistant.

7. Finally, I’m not sure what it says about me that I really wish someone would give me these as a Christmas present next year…
