Murdoch Looks Ahead

Dan Gillmor on Grassroots Journalism: Murdoch Looks Ahead.

I’m certainly no fan of Murdoch either (quite the opposite in fact), but this does seem like an enlightened approach to emergent media from an organisation that is not known for this kind of thinking. My good friend Toby has mentioned to me offline a couple of times that there is a real awareness of the power of weblogs and citizen journalism in News.com – from fairly high up as well. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
