  20. 20. “It would be a waste to limit the use of technology to those who are trained journalists, and leaving out … insights into communities that traditional journalists may not have.” “Citizen journalists will force professional journalists to stay on their toes and take advantage of Internet resources, but I think its ‘cheerleaders’ exaggerate its integrity and future role in society.”
  21. 21. “Another issue that bothers me is that people are talking about the way things are changing so fast and the Internet is the new face of the news. That is not true for all 6 and a half billion of us. In many places the internet..does not exist effectively for the average citizen.” “Considering (a citizen journalism website) also has advertisements somewhat similar to newspapers, what is to stop this new type of journalism from evolving into the old corporate driven journalism we have today?”
  22. 22. “If citizen journalists want these stories..then we should let them..Journalists working for papers and stations can now use the funding and backing they receive to burrow like thorns into the sides of city hall, the federal government, police, FBI, CIA, NSA, big corporations..” “If I could create a hyperlocal I would focus on a map-based 3-d software…the info would resemble something like citysearch but completely visual based..that would be fricking awesome.”
