DAN GILLMOR is launching a nonprofit and nonpartisan Center for Citizens’ Media: “We need a thriving media and journalism ecosystem. We need what big institutions do so well, but we also need the bottom-up — or, more accurately, edge-in — knowledge and ideas of what I’ve called the “former audience” that has become a vital part of the system. I’m also anxious to see that it’s done honorably and in a way that helps foster a truly informed citizenry. I think I can help.”
I’m a fan of Dan’s, and I hope to help too.
