Distributed Journalism

[Keyword: ]. Some interesting thoughts from Dan Gillmor about what he calls 'Distributed Journalism', "where lots of people can work in parallel on small parts of the bigger question and collectively -- and relatively quickly -- bring to bear lots of individual knowledge and/or energy to the matter. Some open-source software projects work this way. The important thing is the parallel activity by large numbers of people, in service of something that would be difficult if not impossible for any one or small group of them to do alone, at least in a timely way."
