I just posted up the podcast for the Blogging Academy brown bag session I did today at work:
Our topic this week: Citizen Journalism. We talk about how bloggers are becoming a better way to find and follow news events than the traditional media. Example at hand – Hurricane Katrina. We go over several sites and services that bring you the real human stories that make up news events, rather than what the TV news decides to show you, or what the newspaper has room to print. Go to the Citizen Journalism page on the wiki for all of the links and sites that we talked about today. I’ll be updating that page with more links and info, and if you know of a great way to get news using the blogosphere, feel free to post a link on the wiki page.
I’m kind of proud of the response the site and podcast have been getting over there, so if you haven’t already, go check it out, and let me know what you think. And if you have any friends, family, or coworkers that you think might like the Blogging Academy, help them subscribe to the feed and/or podcast.
