Digital Journalist Survival Guide: A Glossary of Tech Terms You Should Know

Journalist’s Digital Survival Guide


Jennifer 8. Lee (a former member of Poynter’s National Advisory Board) wrote a glossary of terms for journalists operating in the digital space. These terms and acronyms are essential when understanding how the Internet is populated with content, and how that content makes its way onto other networks and devices. The glossary relates to web standards, programming, online tools, social networking, online advertising and basic technology.

Check it out on PoynterOnline. Check back, as Poynter updates the glossary occasionally.
