The Uptake: Collaborative Online Citizen Journalism

Nominated by Sarah Kuck

The%20Uptake.gif As newspaper giants continue to go under, many news readers and creators continue to speculate on what will take their place. One answer: citizen journalism. A conglomeration of bloggers and freelancers has emerged to fill the void by writing, recording and producing their own news.

Some are even organizing. One such group is collaborative news site The Uptake, which wants you to think about whether the news "will be done to you or by you?" Creator Chuck Olsen has made the site a space where video-focused, citizen journalists can gather to post the latest news stories and commentary. So far, the site has journalists in California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and Washington, D.C.
