Exclusive, Inclusive and Impatient

Getting the scoop is a valuable part of journalistic competition and will survive the shift from Big Media dominance to a "more synergistic system including the rest of us," Dan Gillmor writes. "Scoops will continue to occur -- though they'll take different forms, and the scoop will last for about five minutes before it spreads widely . . . Meanwhile, the involvement of more people in the conversation is the big, and most important, shift of all."

All right Dan, I visit your blog each day for the latest sermon on citizen journalism, and I've enjoyed most of what I've read. But when are you going to put preaching into practice? Impatient in New York.
