How Participatory Journalism is Being Used Now

From Rebecca’s Techjournalism News:
“JEFF JARVIS is now talking.

He begins by summarizing what makes blogs unique and new.

“news is a conversation.”

“Mass market is dead. The mass of niches is going to take over media.”

Mary Lou Fulton shows us the participatory community news site, Northwest Voice, a project by the Bakersfield Californian. It uses a set of software tools developed by iUpload. The site’s citizen journalism model is not unlike South Korea’s OhMyNews. It is not a blog.
