Citizen Journalism- the learning process. Trying to find answers to some of the following questions: Where is the future of the media and the news industry? How will the traditional media merge with Citizen Journalism, and what will be the final product of it? Is Citizen Journalism just a current fashion, or is it really changing the way we perceive and make news? How revolutionary is Citizen Journalism, compared to other media developments over the history? What can other hystorical invention in the field of communications can it be compared to? How can Citizen Journalism change democracy, can CJ change it?
Finally, what are the most significant examples of CJ done today? How accessible is CJ news to an average citizen today (and what are the potential future prospects)?
What are the efforts done currently to promote CJ? What are the main CJ platforms? How are traditional media promoting CJ (the ones that are promoting it)? Why are traditional journalists affraid of CJ (the ones that are affraid)?
Why is it seen as a potential for information liberation and the development of democracy?
Who are the main CJ contributors from the developing countries, war zones, areas with opressed freedom of information?

Chi è l’altro? E’ qualcuno che sa. E sa cose che io non so. “
Io potrei associare le mie competenze con le sue in modo tale da far meglio insieme che separatamente”
“Può aumentare la potenzialità del mio essere da quanto più e diverso (lui) da me”.
— Pierre Lévy, L’intelligenza collettiva (Feltrinelli, 2002) pag. 32
Nessuno sa tutto, ognuno sa qualcosa, la totalità del sapere risiede nell’umanità”
“La tecnologia ci aiuta a pensare, ma nel momento in cui lo fa, cambia il modo in cui pensiamo.
Sergio Maistrello, parlando di Pierre Levvy e l’intelligenza collettiva.

In fact, “citizen journalists” often have neither political nor journalistic intentions. Dr Dave Otway won second place in Press Gazette’s 2006 Citizen Journalism Awards. An avid amateur photographer, Otway took his prize-winning aerial shots of the Buncefield fuel depot in Hemel Hempstead burning after a fuel tank exploded there. Dr Otway had been on an early morning Ryanair flight which flew directly over the conflagration on 11 December 2005 and had taken several pictures. Immediately after arriving to work that morning, Otway uploaded five of the pictures he had taken to the photosharing web site Flickr. His intention, he said in an interview, was to share the images with others, not to report a breaking news story.
In 1984, Ralph Langer of the Dallas Morning News commented, “It sounds like it [the digital camera] could give us more speed, more time to do the selection and cropping of photographs and less time just doing the technical production of it.” Photojournalism educator Charles Scott noted, “Electronic photography is going to replace the silver image. We are going to have to have an understanding of how to edit pictures, how pictures are stored electronically and how to edit them electronically.
