Links: Photo sites, Poynter’s Screenshot Slideshows,’s news blog, CNN’s wire service, Twitter tips and hashtags for events

Mark Luckie offers “Amazing Photojournalism: Where to find the best in news photography,” a collection of sites well worth a look. (While you’re at it, take a look at Luckie’s work as well. This savvy and prodigious blogger and multimedia guy just saw his job evaporate.)

Poynter Online has started, Screenshot Slideshow, a daily collection of page grabs from news Web sites. Check theirs out and submit your own. What a resource! has launched a news blog. Looks good. Will be interesting to see how it evolves.

Knight Stanford Fellowships program is getting a remake. The program will foster innovative projects that promote good journalism. Director Jim Bettinger has the info in a new blog.

Ken Doctor looks at CNN’s new wire service. CNN is inviting editors to check it out in Atlanta Dec. 1.

Sarah Evans writes about “How to Build Community on Twitter” and the obligatory followup: “How Not To.” (Pointer from Amy Gahran.)

Speaking of Gahran, she has tips on how to use hashtags to cover live events, something that could come in handy for newsrooms.
