Gillmor: Citizen journalism needs citizen audiences

Dan Gillmor, author of We the media, today announced the failure of his much-discussed citizen journalism venture, Bayosphere. His open letter on the lessons learned makes for fascinating reading. (I'm sure that folks at South Africa's pioneering citizen journalism venture,, will be paying close attention. )

Next week (31/01/2006), Dan will joins others, including BBC Interactive's Pete Clifton, on the panel of the next Journalism Leaders Forum to discuss the impact of citizen journalism on the establishment - organisations, practitioners and the academy. The event, which is part of the residential week programme for the Journalism Leaders Programme at the University of Central Lancashire, will be Webcast live and it open to all.

These are real, genuine, They are verifiable and student records and
transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon.
