We the Media: The Rise of Grassroots Journalism
Dan Gillmor, Founder and Director, Center for Citizen Media

Track: Emerging Topics
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time: 11:35am - 12:20pm
Location: Salon C


Tech journalist, blogger, and author of the just-released book We the Media, Dan Gillmor makes the case that grassroots journalists are dismantling Big Media's monopoly, and transforming the news from a lecture to a conversation. This informal presentation/discussion looks at how “citizen journalists”are taking the news into their own hands, with the help of blogs, chat, cell phones, and wikis.
