Dan Gillmor

Dan Gillmor who I met during Strong Angel III in San Diego last year has posted some thoughts on the state of citizen journalism globally. He touches on many interesting aspects of the growth of citizen driven content and importantly, towards the end, emphasizes the need for media literacy. He does not however touch on some of the problems facing citizen media – such as those experienced in France and Egypt and China in particular, or the growth in calls for the curtailment and control of content on the internet or the challenges to the freedom of expression on the web in general.
