Open Source Journalism

from the new-buzzwords dept

Wired is running a story on Slashdot and what it means for journalism and touch on the idea of “open source” journalism, which is exactly what Brian was suggesting we call Techdirt. Interesting article to read, though I’d bet it was posted partly to guarantee the Slashdot effect pointing back to Wired. Update: Damn, I should make sure I read through the entire article. Someone just pointed out to me that near the end they actually mention Techdirt.
