- A(nother) new report on citizen journalism (PDF printable vsn)-- this one looking at how news organizations are slowly bringing the community into the conversation.It comes from Dan Gillmor's organization Center for Citizen Media. Nicole Stockdale and I are scheduled to reprise our Blogging for Editors presenation at the ACES meeting in Miami next month. But just three years after we started it, it's starting to sound old. As the report's exec summary puts it: As traditional journalism organizations move onto the Web, they are learning to do more than re-publish the work they’ve printed or broadcast. The first forays into conversational journalism were blogs written by staff members, a genre now so widespread that it’s getting difficult to find a news organization without staff blogs.
