Bloggers as independent journalists
Published: Friday 2004-08-13.
(back in the days known as Bymp from the group Tropical Duo and writer for
Swedish cross-computer magazine
grassroot journalism [in Sweden] doesn’t work,
when large events in the world around us
passes by relatively unnoticed in the Swedish blogosphere,
even though it would be
an excellent topic for an alternative media coverage.
Now, I’m not sure which blogs Pawlo is reading, but I definitely hope that no one is confusing this blog for any kind of journalism. It isn’t, at least most of the time. I am sure there are people who are trying somewhat more seriously to write more journalistic articles, but those are not the kind of blogs I read; if I want to read news, I read them at news sites (of which there are several, both more established ones and on a grassroot level on the web).
But nevertheless, it is an interesting column, well worth a read.
