We the Media

Thanks to Dr. B. for recommending Dan Gillmor’s book, We the Media. Dr. B. mentions that the book focuses “on democratic journalism is available for download under the CC license. It looks like an interesting read and includes work on blogs.” Sounds perfect for my freshman composition course this fall.

Update: I took some time this afternoon to “flip through” Gillmor’s book (is that what you call it when you read something on Adobe Acrobat?), and it looks really useful for some of teh discussions I’d like to have in my composition class. I will likely supplement Gillmor with some more recent news articles and blog entries on the blogging of the Democratic and Republican conventions. Still working out the specifics, but I think this could be a great way of introducing some of the technological issues associated with elections and citizenship in general.
