Beatblogging: reporting using crowdsourcing and comments

05/04/2009

This is a great link that’s provides a definition/explanation of  beatblogging.

Within that you’ll see terms like two-way communication, which really means reporters talking directly with readers and vice versa.

If you want, skip that and head to “Why beatblog?” Those are worth reading.

What’s it mean to us? For now, it means setting up comment boxes on our blogs (if you haven’t, do s0). Will you build a community before class ends? Probably not. But it’s all part of the package.
