Get in on the hot video action


If you're interested in citizen journalism and/or political video, join The Uptake Google Group so we can have a place to chat and share our CJ brains + links + experiences. I started things off posting about my experiences shooting Al Franken and Bill Clinton. (Yes, it was an exciting day.)

How about a walk down memory lane?

We really are living in a world where "networked citizens get smarter faster than the insititutions that that govern them." We'll decide who to elect, we'll decide what to think about them, thankyouverymuch. Each of us bloggers is part of the media. Hell, I can walk into Dean HQ and get a "press" pass. Who am I? I'm just a blogger, and a filmmaker yes, but they're both independent media. Me with a computer, me with a camera, I use them together and I am the frigging media. We are the frigging media.

The genie is out of the bottle.

"Weblogs have been massively hyped by the media. And they aren't going to change the face of journalism any time soon."
