Dan: You're too valuable to take off the circuit. Mystery solved.

Thanks for the pointer.

"Necessity is the mother of invention"

Citizen Journalist exists for two reason:

1) Cheap printing presses (blogs) allow people to fill a void that has always existed in sharing very focused information. Analogous, in my beliefs, to pamphleteers and Thomas Paine (as a side note, Paine wrote "Common Sense" anonymously - a required 'option' for the success of citizen journalism - in my opinion).

2) Less so today, but increasing every day, the void created (or left) by dailies and weeklies.

While many of us analyze and discuss who and what journalists are . . . watch them just appear.

Who winnows your chaff?

Some of my 'usual suspects' include Indymedia, Antiwar.com, J Orlinn Grabbe, Infoshop.org
Gene Ross and Dan the Man, Oh and Cryptome of course. The classics.
