Ny bog: Håndbog til borgerjournalister

Hos JD Lasica, som altid er værd at følge, ser jeg, at der udkommer en håndbog til borgerjournalister:

Jack Driscoll, editor in residence at the MIT Media Lab, has written a book on citizen journalism that just went to press: Couch Potatoes Sprout: The Rise of Online Community Journalists is a short how-to, aimed not at professionals but at aspiring citizen journalists.

Bogen bliver beskrevet med følgende ord:

Group citizen journalism is emerging in local communities as mainstream media reduces its reporting ranks. This book describes how community group journalism operates at adult and youth levels.

An intimate, inside look at the internal workings of three pioneering publications—that started in 1996, 1998 and 2003—reflects the satisfaction and energizing effect of being able to publish widely without the benefit of a printing press.

Du kan læse et uddrag af bogen, side 15-16 — ved dog ikke hvor præcist et indtryk af bogen, to siders uddrag gør.

Men rart at se en bog, som tilsyneladende kigger på sagerne fra borgernes og bidragydernes side.
