Dan Gillmor to Leave San Jose Merc News
Wow!! If this isn't a statement.
Dan Gillmor is leaving the San Jose Mercury News next month to work on a citizen-journalism project.
Says Dan, "I hope to pull together something useful that helps enable -- and demonstrates -- the emerging grassroots journalism that I wrote about in my recent book. Something powerful is happening, it's in the early stages and I have a chance to help figure this out."
This part is even more powerful - "I hate the idea of leaving. But I'd hate not trying this even more."
Way to go Dan. Follow your heart. If your gut is saying you need to try this out, you'll always wonder "what if" if you don't.
It was also announced more officially in the Silicon Beat by two of Dan's colleagues.
