Just a reminder to some SoFla bloggers: tomorrow is July 4th. Okay, now that we got that cleared up, here's your July 3rd and glorious Friday morning Sift.
A- En Vivo Y En Directo has a new photoblog that they want you to take a look at.
I just got back from a 40 day trip to Peru in which I toted my trusty DSLR (a Canon Xti) along with two lenses (a wideangle and a prime). I lost count of how many photos I took but I’ve started up a photo blog on tumblr where I’ve been posting & plan to keep posting up these and any other photos that might come along from now til whenever. Nothing fancy, just trying to improve my skills.B- SFLTV interviews former WSFL anchor Amber Lyon and gives us a better understanding of her journalistic skills that we couldn't possibly know about while she was at WSFL.
We don’t know why Amber Lyon is no longer with WSFL and ‘SouthFlorida.com/LIVE’. It was first noticed by our friends over at the New Times Blog, and linked to us by SFLTV.com forum member “cuppajoe.”C- The Chowfather returns to Steak 954 and comes away more satisfied this time around.
“I am no longer working for WSFL and at this time, have no further comment on that topic.”
We are respecting her wishes and won’t be intruding any further. We look forward to watching her next move in this ever changing industry.
I had to give the ribeye another shot because I really couldn't figure out why my first one was bland. This one was PERFECT.D- Man or Maniac? dissects the Sun-Sentinel's new feedback system.
Worse, they've chosen to use GetSatisfaction to track customer feedback, probably the most annoying webtool since the pop-up add. Forget about the stick-in-the-eye tab that sticks out of the right side of the screen, scrolling with the window so you can't ignore it, threatening to leap out at the slightest mouse-over. No, the worst part of GetSatisfaction is that it's designed to spin customer complaints so they look like positive feed back.E- The South Florida Watershed Journal uses a tortoise and a hare to explain South Florida's water cycle.
