I’ve been meaning to do it for quite a while, but I’ve finally started a stub in the Indieweb wiki for the topic Indieweb for Journalism.

There is a rapidly growing group of writers and journalists who have been joining the Indieweb movement, and it’s long overdue to create a list of resources specific to the topic to help out ourselves and others in the future.

I invite others like Dan Gillmor, Richard MacManus, Bill Bennett, Jeff Jarvis, Jay Rosen, Aram Zucker-Scharff and others to feel free to add to, change, or modify the page to add resources they’re aware of as well. Not on the list? Feel free to add yourself too!

I’d also welcome everyone to join in the conversation online via webchat, IRC, Slack, or Matrix. Hopefully we can all make each others’ sites better and more useful for our daily writing work. (If anyone needs help logging into the wiki or getting set up, I’m happy to help.)

📺 The Bridge S1, E13; S2, E1

Watched The Bridge S1, E13; S2, E1 from FX
When a body is found on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, two detectives, one from the United States and one from Mexico, must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

I feel like season 1 should have ended at episode 10ish with the big showdown on the bridge.

The final few episodes of the season should have just been part of season 2.

📺 The Bridge S1, E6-12 (FX)

Watched The Bridge S1, E6-12 from FX
When a body is found on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, two detectives, one from the United States and one from Mexico, must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

Still not sure quite what to think of this. There are some interesting characters, some quirky plot points, and regular and perverse surprises one wouldn’t have suspected. Things come to head in a hokey manner but then keep moving on without any real thrust. While it might be the idea of cinéma vérité they’re going after, it really just feels like unprofessional and unfocused writing.

There’s only two seasons, so I may press on, but it’s becoming more and more reluctant. Perhaps I’ve just been spoiled by some great stuff lately.

Browsing… I promise.

But some early looking to figure out what to buy post-birthday isn’t against the rules though is it? This is some of the more interesting newer stuff I saw for the list:
