Distributed Journalism: Sharing the Story

Dan Gillmor describes “distributed journalism” as “any project or problem that can be broken up into little pieces, where lots of people can work in parallel on small parts of the bigger question and collectively -- and relatively quickly -- bring to bear lots of individual knowledge and/or energy to the matter.” A similar tactic is being employed by a number of media advocacy, grassroots and public policy groups that are joining in 2005 to launch a concerted media reform movement. More on this later.

Isn't "distributed journalism" just a fancy term for what's already happening at numerous blogs, such as Daily Kos (see their group effort against Sinclair) and Powerline (their group effort to bring down Rather)?? --Liza
