Session 3: The power of citizen journalism

Andrew Lih, assistant professor and director of technology at the Journalism and Media Studies Center, University of Hong Kong, followed with a cursory look at independent blogging and podcasting in China. The presentation is downloadable here.

Rebecca MacKinnon, co-founder of the international citizens' media community Global Voices Online, concluded the session with a discussion of collaborative models for bloggers and mainstream media from around the world. Her presentation can be accessed here.
