We the Media: Grassroots Journalism By the People, For the People
Publisher: O'Reilly Media | ISBN: 0596102275 | edition 2004 | PDF | 336 pages | 1 mb
Big Media has lost its monopoly on the news, thanks to the Internet. Now that it's possible to publish in real time to a worldwide audience, a new breed of grassroots journalists are taking the news into their own hands. Armed with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras, these readers-turned-reporters are transforming the news from a lecture into a conversation. In We the Media, nationally acclaimed newspaper columnist and blogger Dan Gillmor tells the story of this emerging phenomenon and sheds light on this deep shift in how we make–and consume–the news.
