Epilogue and Acknowledgements

In the epilogue, Gillmor explains how his book was an experiment in open-source journalism. He initially posted an outline and welcomed corrections, additions, and comments. The response was overwhelming and eventually the author posted the Introduction and Chapter 1. Being vulnerable to criticism or corrections didnít deter him.

ďI tend to learn more (or at least as much) from people who think Iím wrong than people who think Iím right, and when they offer reasons I pay close attention, even if we continue to disagreeĒ (248).

That quote says a lot about Gillmor and says a lot to anyone who wishes to express their opposition to any issue or statement. An argument backed with facts is one worth listening to.
