Hey, there's a lot of furor now around the emerging area of citizens' journalism, where ordinary citizens complement the work of professionals and maybe go beyond.
That's a big topic, best discussed elsewhere.
I just want to remind everyone that people's jobs are involved, writers, editors, delivery people, PR people, and more.
When an industry goes through a major shift, sometimes people lose jobs.
I don't have anything smart to suggest, except that news professionals starting looking hard at the blogging phenomenon, and try to get ready.
