Dan Gillmor presents "A Brief History of Media" at Ignite NewsFoo 2011
I'm director of the new Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship and Kauffman Professor of Digital Media Entrepreneurship at Arizona State Universitys Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. The project aims to help students appreciate the startup culture of risk-taking, and to foster new media products and services. Im also director of the Center for Citizen Media, a project to enhance and expand grassroots media and its reach, affiliated with ASU and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard. I wrote We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People (OReilly Media, 2004), a book that explains the rise of citizen media and why it matters.
