Collision of journalism and technology

We the Media (Ch 8-10) -- News Writing (EL 227)

I thought that it was interesting that Gillmor described online journalism as a "collision" between journalism and technology. It's exactly that. The two have been forced together, but not a bad kind of forced. You know? Haha. What I mean is that online journalism came about by people's frustrations and dislike of Big Media. So, in a sense, the two were forced together by citizens to satisfy their thirst for true, accurate, liberating news. It's interesting to think about.
