Dan Gillmor, author of "We The Media" and founder of the Center for Citizen Media, spoke today at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. I engineered and recorded the live webcast from the luncheon series today from 12:30 – 2:00 pm in the conference room at the Berkman Center.
Dan talked about how Citizen Journalism is transforming our culture as more and more people use blogs, podcasts, vodcasts, and other new media tools to tell their own stories and as a result challenge traditional media models.
Dan is starting a non-profit Center for Citizen Media as a joint initiative with the Berkman Center and the University of California-Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
During the luncheon Ethan Zuckerman, co-founder of Global Voices talked about how people around the world are using blogs to challenge mainstream media representations of them and are saying "I don't like this coverage so therefore I'm going to take it on".
