The Center for Citizen Media

Interesting article on a new center being created at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism: Center for Citizen Media. Dan Gillmor, founder of Grassroots Media, Inc. and author of We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People.

I wonder how soon we’ll start to see other centers that are focusing on leveraging the aspects of Web 2.0 and social software for the benefit of society?
From the article:

Starting
in 2006, I’ll be putting together a nonprofit Center for Citizen Media.
The goals are to study, encourage and help enable the emergent
grassroots media sphere, with a major focus on citizen journalism.

I’m thrilled and honored that the center will be affiliated with two superb universities in a bi-coastal partnership.
