Citizen Media Distribution Deal

Lost Remote: AP jumps into citizen journalism with NowPublic deal. In effect, with AP’s broad distribution, this is the biggest development so far in the short history of citizen journalism, although Reuter’s recent citizen journalism deal with Yahoo’s You Witness News is a close second.

This will be worth watching closely. A key question, plainly, is whether and how the citizen-journalist contributors are rewarded for their work.

(Disclosure: I’m on NowPublic‘s advisory board.)
