I went out to Brooklyn on Friday to hear a presentation about a citizen journalist group from Turkey called 140 Journos, except they’ve now shortened it to Journos. They want to share the tools they’ve developed with others. Now that newspapers clearly appear to be dying, I’ve been paying attention to what will be taking its place. This is something different though, because it’s not really new journalism exactly, as counter-journalism.
I’m also interested in exploring other ways to tell a story beyond a book (something I started way back when in grad school). I still love books, so I’m hoping to come up with an expanded book form, a super book.
On the way to the presentation, which was in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I was caught by the graffiti, which was everywhere. I want to go back and explore this neighborhood. It hasn’t been completely taken over yet.
