Interview with Dan Gillmor

Dan Gillmor, another great mind at Berkman Center. I just love his book “WE – The Media”. The Financial Times quoted it: “We the Media, has become something of a bible for those who believe the online medium will change journalism for the better.”

Dan Gillmor is the founder of the Center for Citizen Media, a project to enable and expand reach of grassroots media. From 1994-2004, Gillmor was a columnist at the San Jose Mercury News, Silicon Valley’s daily newspaper, and wrote a weblog for He joined the Mercury News after six years with the Detroit Free Press. Before that, he was with the Kansas City Times and several newspapers in Vermont. He has won or shared in several regional and national journalism awards. Before becoming a journalist he played music professionally for seven years.
