I used to like reading Dan Gillmor’s column in the San Jose Mercury News, but stopped reading it once I moved off the peninsula and stopped getting the paper. Which is lame, because it’s available online. But anyway. Some page I was reading recently pointed to Gillmor’s new book, We the Media. Even better, though, it pointed to the electronic version. I’ve read the introduction, and it seems like the book might have some interesting thoughts on the participatory nature of journalism in the future, as everybody becomes both a consumer and a producer. We’ll see. This entry is mostly for me to have a convenient link to it, so I can read it…
About me: I'm an unrepentant generalist finding my way in a world of specialists. I started this blog to review books, but I later expanded to write on whatever interested me across a range of topics.
I am also an executive coach, helping leaders become more effective by creating clarity and acting with focus. You can learn more about my coaching at Too Many Trees, or by checking out what I share on LinkedIn around leadership and personal development.
email me if you have any questions or comments.
I send out a biweekly newsletter to share what I've been writing and reading. You can check it out here, and sign up below.
