We the Media: Technology Empowers a New Grassroots Journalism

Dan Gillmor, San Jose Mercury
[Interview]    [Weblog]

Grassroots journalists are dismantling Big Media's monopoly on the news, transforming it from a lecture to a conversation. Not content to accept the news as reported, these readers-turned reporters are publishing in real time to a worldwide audience via the Internet. The impact of their work is just beginning to be felt by professional journalists, the newsmakers they cover and especially the former audience, which is now part of the process. The tools are still in the early stages, however, creating substantial needs and opportunities.

This keynote is based on material from the upcoming book, We the Media (O'Reilly, 2004).
