Weekend read: My weekly share on Twitter, with favorites

Time to grab your sled and trudge off into the sunset? This has been a busy week for me, and as you read this, I'm heading north for meetings and family time (not in that order) myself. So let me leave you with these great reads, tips and finds I shared on Twitter this week, where I'm @dontgetcaught.
And here are a few items I favorited:
  • Wonder how to pitch hyperlocal news sites? They have 10 common features, according to this analysis by 10,000 Words.
  • Writers will like need this:  A handy online guide to common errors in English usage.
  • Quora quibbles:  First, tech guru Robert Scoble fell in love with Quora, the new questions site. Then, it wasn't all he'd hope. In between, he answered hundreds of questions and drew in a lot of new users. This post looks at why that's good and bad for Quora and will bring you up to speed with what's going on with this new site. (The good news: Still works for the rest of us.)
