Dan Gillmor's Mediactive: masterclass in 21st century journalism demands a net-native news-media - Boing Boing

Check the link below for the rest of the Cory Doctorow review and download links.  You can read the entire book at no cost; I opted for the Kindle edition for reading convenience and to use Kindle annotations – and because I believe excellent writing should be rewarded.

Dan "We, the Media" Gillmor's latest book, Mediactive is a master-class in media literacy for the 21st century. Gillmor, a former star reporter at the San Jose Mercury News, serial entrepreneur, and journalism professor, has produced an extraordinary text that disrupts the current poor-me narrative of failing journalistic business models and counters it with a set of sensible, entrepreneurial proposals for an Internet era news-media that invites broad participation without surrendering critical thinking and healthy skepticism.
