Citizen Journalism

While O/S Tobes, a friend of mine who happens to be a journalist with News.com.au, shares what seems to be his growing enthusiasm for weblogs in journalism. I’m talking to a friend about setting up some community news sites based around the weblog format. I’m also reading the book We the Media by Dan Gillmor. I’m looking into a bunch of different open source content managements systems for both WWF and this other project as well. Needless to say I’m pretty interested in the “citizen journalism” space at the moment 🙂

Today I discovered (through Personal Democracy Forum) Movement as Network which has a couple of posts on the topic: OhMyNews International: citizen journalism and “The Rise of Open Source Politics”.

Very interesting times…
