It’s holiday time, and that means travel mania, less work and yes, year-end roundups. Yes, they are the lazy way to finish out the year for journalists and bloggers around the world, the ultimate in traffic catnip. But we thought we could take a different approach, doing year-end roundups for each niche we cover at MediaShift, giving our correspondents the space to talk about important trends that happened in 2010, and pointing us toward what we might expect in 2011. And in one case, for the Top 10 media stories, we even collaborated with our audience using iEtherPad. Happy reading, and happy holidays!
