We Media whitepaper released

The venerable profession of journalism finds itself at a rare moment in history where, for the first time its hegemony as gatekeeper of news is threatened, not just by new technologies and competitors, but by the audience it serves.

In response, Shayne and I are proud to announce the release of We Media: How audiences are shaping the future of news and information.

The 65-page whitepaper was commissioned by Dale Peskin for New Directions for News. (The non-profit, media thinktank recently merged with the American Press Institute.)

With the help of Dan Gillmor (foreword) and J.D. Lasica (editor), the paper analyzes cultural, social and technological forces that are empowering citizens to participate in the journalistic process along with advising media companies on how to respond.
