1. ONLINE ACTIVISM

HANDBOOK FOR BLOGGERS AND CYBER-DISSIDENTS

Reporters Without Borders developed this handbook (in English, French, Chinese, Arabic and Persian), to support citizen journalism in repressive environments where media is frequently censored. The manual orients internet users on how to set up blogs and publicize them, while preserving personal anonymity as part of ensuring personal safety and online security. It also examines how to establish credibility, promoting ethical and journalistic principles. The guide looks at specific situations to offer appropriate methods, with tips from expert bloggers and journalists.

2. PODCASTING

PODCASTING OVERVIEW

Wikipedia offers an overview article on podcasting, defining this
publishing method for audio and video programs via the internet. The
overview includes information about aggregators, where syndicated web
content such as podcast files are grouped so that one can select
those of interest, as well as "tagging", to be able to label and find
the podcasts you want.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN PODCAST: A STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL

About Electronics and Gadgets' Corey Deitz gives a simple podcast
overview and step-by-step instructions on podcasting, using plain
language, including recording audio and saving in mp3 files, creating
an RSS file to facilitate your podcasts reaching others, and file
validation.

step video screen shots of the registration process in several free
