Current statistics, unlike a few years ago, show increasing participation from demographic minorities so the hope is that if this trend continues, the 2.0 web will look like we do.
War between “old media” and “new media” – today: the war is over – concerted attempts at finding understanding btwn media and blogosphere. “networked journalism” (Jeff Jarvis)
Media outlets are embracing web 2.0 – not only tapping creativity but also profitable
Open piloting – focus group of the whole web 2.0 @ NPR through sharing rough drafts of shows
- Rough Cuts
- Bryant Park
Radio Open Source (PRI not NPR)- Topics/content developed collaboratively on the blog
Trying a similar idea with Talk of the Nation.
BBC World Have Your Say – editorial meetings are broadcast on the internet in the morning.
CNN iReport (http://www.cnn.com/exchange) – citizens submit photos videos, best clips on air, others in gallery (BBC did this for the London train bombings but didn’t have the system automated to the same extent)
OhmyNews (Korean – but now has [some] Japanese and English content) – 20% from citizen journalists, ones who submit consistently get paid
Global Voices (Harvard, Zukerman?, globalvoicesonline.org?) – volunteer bloggers from various places around the world who write summaries of what’s happening in their neck of the woods – bridges. Reuters has now formed a partnership with them.
VoteGuide – students covered California’s 11th congressional district election. Video, photos, attendance at gatherings/rallies/pancake breakfasts. Can this be expanded to all political races?
