Dan Gillmor on Grassroots Journalism: Distributed Journalism's Future
Dan Gillmor on Grassroots Journalism: Distributed Journalism's Future Here's Gillmor talking about distributed journalism. He talks about the NYT calling all their stringers and asking them to all send in some local item which is then put together into a single national piece. The thing is, the Net lets distributed journalism actually make a difference -- like gathering experts to analyze a complicated bill and publish their findings BEFORE it comes up for vote. "We might catch a lot of sleazy stuff before it became law. Today we're lucky if we know about any of it before it actually passes."
