Show Workings with Jing

A special something’s been developed by TechSmith – the same people behind SnagIt.

(SnagIt, if this counts for anything, is the best screengrabber I’ve used on Windows so far).

With the Jing Project, you can record video of anything you’re doing on your computer and share instantly. After a free installation, it’s all yours.

Build Shorter Bridges

There’s been hype at Slashdot and observations from far more astute bloggers than this one about how we do in 3.0. Two things I keep hearing: aggregating; and more expert editing of open-source.

Brijit plays to both. Summarising articles from all sorts of publications in 100 words or less (the crucial style – short), a simple ratings system (easy scanability), aggregating with nous, presenting with editorial authority.

It’s also a chance for writers to get bread. They select the material they want precised. If you can do it with rigour and a seasoning of opinion, they’ll pay you for it. Work well to deadline, get more commissions.

Even a hack like me could make a buck. It’s just getting several bucks.
