Gillmor writes on citizen media for the BBC

[Keyword: ]. Thanks to Steve Outing for pointing out this one: Citizen media 'guru' Dan Gillmor has begun writing a column for the BBC on the subject. The first attempt is the sort of generic introduction that often kicks off these affairs - "Media are becoming democratised, and a global conversation is emerging," he tells us, which may be news to those not in the business, but is starting to sound hackneyed. He then takes a quick tour around the tools of this global conversation - blogs, wikis, podcasts and mashups. Again, introductory stuff. No doubt as Gillmor gets into his stride and feels confident that his readers know what he's talking about, things will become more interesting.
