Reuters’ Glocer- Old media must embrace the amateur

FT.com / Comment & analysis / Comment – Old media must embrace the amateur

Tom Glocer op eds in the FT about the role of MSM in a citizen journalism world. Good points, now let’s see Reuters put it into action. Sample suggestions I would make are:

1. Make all content bloggable — no cost walls, no reg walls

2. Make photographs, charts, maps, and other graphics bloggable under fair use. No server side blocks.

3. Initiate del.icio.us tagging on all Reuter’s stories

4. Open a contribute function to permit citizen journalists to upload their contributions adjacent to the “professional content”
