Weekend read: My weekly share on Twitter, with favorites

Time to untangle all the loose ends of your week, now, and plug into the weekend. I've got plenty of weekend reading for you, based on my finds on Twitter, where I'm @dontgetcaught. Consider yourself wired into my world of resources, starting now:

And a few items I favorited, for later reading:

  • Let's repeat that again: This Tumblr of unnecessary journalism phrases (think "estimated at about" or "free gift") is useful as a reminder to any writer, or maybe just the laugh you need today. Reminds me of the NBA color commentary I once heard on TV: "You know Fred, to win tonight, Denver has to score more points than the other team." We might need another Tumblr of Obvious Journalism Observations, come to think of it.
  • Plugged-in network maven Scott Heiferman, founder of, shares his insights about the popular networking and social site in this video interview.
Next week, I'll be in Arizona for the ScienceWriters 2011 meeting. Let me know if you'll be there so we can meet up--and thanks again for reading the blog this week.
