Dan Gillmor is an international expert on citizen journalism and new media. He writes a column about new media and technology for The Guardian, and he is the author of two books about the way in which the Web has transformed the power dynamic between the public and the media. The goal of his latest book and ongoing project, Mediactive, reflects his “strong belief that we need to turn media ‘consumers’ into active (even activist) users instead of passive receptacles.”
