For the first time in human history, most people in developed countries are able to publish their news and thoughts to the world within a few minutes of deciding to do so. Meanwhile, the big industrial-scale media organisations are in decline, and at the same time there is a new blog, website, or social-media presence almost every hour. This book takes the temperature of this emerging sector of news media, with a collection of contributions by new-media entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds - journalism, IT innovation, social activism, and community work. They talk about hard work, connecting with their audiences, and what just might be a new kind of news ecosystem in which everyone gets to play.
