Citizen Journalism conference blog

[Keyword: , , , ]. Well, the Citizen Journalism 2007 conference finally took place today. Michael Hill, Trinity Mirror's Head of Multimedia, spoke of the group's "garlic bread moment" in converting to the new media age, while blogger Tom Reynolds talked of the power of the blogosphere, as well as its self-regulating nature. Vicky Taylor, the BBC's Head of Interactivity, outlined the organisation's approach to user generated content, and the whole was riddled with extensive questioning and debate.

You'll find some coverage already at Journalism.co.uk (Trinity Mirror launches ultra-local citizen journalism sites), but for more on the speeches take a look at the conference blog at http://citizenjournalism.wordpress.com/ - which I'll be adding to later - and there's a conference wiki at http://citizenjournalism.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome which anyone can contribute to.

Hi Paul,

my name is Guillaume. I am a wiki evangelist (see my blog) and also happen to work for XPertNet, the company that runs the XWiki hosting service.

We have a new design available for XWiki (you can see it applied on http://www.xwiki.org) and I would be glad to switch your XWiki to this new skin if you would like to.

I am also quite keen on finding out more about how tools such as wikis are or could be used by press and media organizations. If this kind of discussion may be of interest to you, you can e-mail me back. Do you think that the Telegraph uses wikis in its brand new newsroom ?
