In order to share what I’ve found to be useful/interesting/etc. while browsing around below are my links for May 9th. You can find my full set of bookmarks at my Delicious account.
- Has Nicolas Sarkozy delivered? Two years on – Bruni, bling and barricades – An in-depth and rather critical portrayal of the situation that French president Nicolas Sarkozy now finds himself in. Sounds as though what started out as a riding wave of optimism has started to come crashing down. Also says that youth unemployment is a staggering 21% in France.
- Icon Designer 3.0 Beta – Designer Desktop – Icons that can be quite useful. The RSS Reader icon and the envelope with the coffee cup would be great for the new Pioneer site design. They fit with the color scheme nicely.
- What’s So Funny About News, Comment and Understanding? – Sam has some interesting points to make against Jay Rosen's outright condemnation of "he said she said" journalism. Desires to see a return to more objectivity and analysis.
