OHMYNEWS INTERVIEWS DAN GILLMOR

DangillmorKorean open source news innovators OhMyNews interview Dan Gillmor about his latest leap. Obviously I don't have the name recognition (or savings account) of Gillmor, but I'm sure inspired and comforted knowing I'm not alone:

Dan Gillmor's announcement that he will leave the San Jose Mercury News next month in order to start a citizen-journalism venture has left many insiders scratching their heads. Why is the much respected tech writer leaving what he described as "greatest gig in the world" for the perilous journey of developing an entrepreneurial idea in citizen-journalism?

It is, in part, because it is there. Gillmor, a well-respected veteran journalist of 25 years, wrote in his blog on Dec. 10: "I hate the idea of leaving. But I'd hate not trying this even more."
