Citizens doing it for themselves

Three really good examples of citizen media efforts today at Gnomedex. Some are working within traditional media frameworks, but doing really innovative stuff, such as WKRN News 2, others doing it outside of the traditional media space, such as Our Media.

JD from Our Media took us through some examples of DIY content, while Terry Heaton showed us how he has helped the TV folk understand what citizen media is about. The blogosphere has trebled in Nashville since they began at the start of the year. Their plan is to get the bloggers they have helped get started, on air and “reporting” what matters to them. Cory Bergman showed us Lost Remote TV blog which I have to check out. I was too busy checking out the Our Media stuff to listen properly to him. Sorry.
