Making the News will be about the “the intersection of technology and journalism. [The working title] reflects a central point of this project, namely that today’s (and tomorrow’s) communications tools are turning traditional notions of news and journalism in new directions. These tools give us the ability to take advantage, in the best sense of the word, of the fact that our collective knowledge and wisdom greatly exceeds any one persons grasp of almost any subject. We can, and must, use that reality to our mutual advantage.”
Dan Gillmor is asking readers to send in their ideas for the book. This seems like a good thing to do. Maybe I should also put together my thoughts, and work on building up my [still imaginary] book online first.
