In between the blogging and the television, I'm delighted to be taking part in a new kind of collaborative journalism this week. Mark Glaser of Online Journalism Review kindly invited me to be one of five writers involved in crafting a wiki-like article on what I've come to think of as The Rosenblum Proposal.
Here's how it works: Over the next two days, I, along with four others (including Rosenblum himself) take turns adding our thoughts to the ongoing rant. It being a wiki, we five blowhards endlessly publish and edit our opinions while OJR readers submit questions and steer the discussion. At the end of the two days, Glaser will render a final edit that will live on-line forever afterward. Or at least until the Pod People come.
So if such a discussion should interest you, hop on over to the Online Journalism Review for a bracing give-and-take on 'Video journalists': Inevitable revolution or way to cut TV jobs?' If you'd rather take a screwdriver to the eyesocket than suffer through yet another blistering diatribe on the decline of Weatern Television, well then, rest easy and know that your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is keeping busy...
