"Big Media has lost its monopoly on the news, thanks to the Internet. Now that it's possible to publish in real time to a worldwide audience, a new breed of grassroots journalists are taking the news into their own hands. In We the Media, nationally acclaimed newspaper columnist and blogger Dan Gillmor tells the story of this emerging phenomenon and sheds light on this deep shift in how we make - and consume - the news." "Journalism in the 21st century will be fundamentally different from the Big Media that prevails today. We the Media casts light on the future of journalism, and invites us all to be part of it."--BOOK JACKET.

A primer on influence

by bobrobboy (WorldCat user published 2008-06-09) Very Good Permalink

Consider this a primer on the value of widespread access to publication tools. Dan Gillmor knows where journalism is headed.

The book is best described as a lesson on where influence is coming from.
