Some Sites for Citizen Journalism
Then there is this MSNBC.com mini-site for CJ. It’s mostly about Hurricane Katrina. (Very different from NowPublic.com.)
Scoopt is very much about photos. The license deal is 50-50 with a three-month exclusivity clause. After that, your rights revert to you. This provides a way for an unknown photographer to get a great shot out in front of the public and get paid for it too.
Rocketboom is not CJ, but it’s … um … kinda like a newscast. Daily, Monday through Friday. Except they’ve been on vacation this week. So they’ve been showing reruns. (Just like ABC’s Lost.)
OhmyNews International is in English. From what I have heard, the traditional journalists in South Korea are trying hard to ignore this juggernaut in their midst. The story about the stem cell research fraud is top news today.
