Atlanta Journal Constitution: Power of Blogs

I have an article in today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution about weblogging and its effects on public journalism.

I mention that Dan Gilmore, who writes the eJournal Weblog at, is asking his readers to help him write a book on the intersection of journalism, technology and Weblogging.

I write in part:

Collectively, he says, his readers know far more than any one individual, including himself.

The I add:

Smart journalists will learn how to tap into that collective knowledge to produce smarter stories. In the past, citizens sought empowerment from the press, but in the future the press will receive empowerment from the people thanks to Weblogs, the people’s printing press.
