The folks at the Tactical Technology Collective are planning to release soon a “Citizen Journalism Toolkit” that
will provide accessible and effective training materials on selected free software tools and web applications with a focus on giving people what they need to know in order to create and distribute content. The materials will cover print publishing, using images, online publishing and audio.
Looking forward to giving this a whirl.
But tools are less important, by far, than community building and commitment. However valuable this kit will be, the people who use it are the key to any success.
