Citizen Journos

UPDATE: Detailed play-by-play of the conference here. Soundbite, Jay Rosen: "When I got involved in public journalism, it started with an observation of mine that was shared by a number of others: it's summed up with the word 'disconnect' -- there's a perception of disconnect between the press and the public."

EARLIER: Jeff Jarvis is reporting from Len Witt's conference in Toronto on participatory journalism.

There's some blogger bashing by Jan Schaffer of J-Lab that is certainly ironic because her group hands out awards for innovations in journalism.

More interesting, is Mary Lou Fulton telling folks how the Bakersfield Californian let the people publish their own paper online. Check it out.
