Mitch Kapor: We the Media

Mitch Kapor: We the Media "Dan Gillmor, the Technology columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, has a new book entitled, “We the Media: Grassroots Journalism By the People For the People.” This is a great book dealing with the impact of the Internet on politics and the news media written by an author (and a personal friend) who has covered the electronic revolution for the past decade and who has even longer experience in the traditional news business. It is available from bookstores and also for download via a Creative Commons license."

See post for links. You might also want to read TNR's thoughtful review of Paul Starr's "The Creation of the Media: The Political Origins of Modern Communications" for some longer-term historical context.
