This is an interesting column from AlterNet on the future of citizen journalism.
I’m collecting this sort of stuff now because I’m writing a book. The working title is Journalism in the Digital Age: Reporters, reportage and the public sphere. I’m interested in commentary as I go along and I’ve decided on a small experiment: I’m going to blog the book as I write it.
I’m not quite sure what that really means at this point. Perhaps I’ll put extracts or ideas up here for you to question and comment on. I suppose this is really the first entry in that process.
