Reuters’ Glocer- Old media must embrace the amateur / 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 tagging on all Reuter’s stories

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