On my piece of a few days ago, here’s some other examples of emerging citizen media. Northwest Voice, Goskokie, ibrattleboro and from Asia, ohmynews. Simon points to a great story on ohmynews.

Mark Glaser reports that the J-Lab at the University of Maryland has announced $1 million in seed money for 20 startups doing micro-local news projects (called “New Voices” – how cleaver…). From the release –

“Daily, we see citizens contributing in significant ways to news in the public interest,’’ said Jan Schaffer, J-Lab executive director. “They are keeping mainstream journalists and public officials honest, as well as reporting community news that falls below the radar of daily news outlets. The New Voices project will enhance this capacity and help create exciting new opportunities for participating in civic life.’’
