Gift Ideas for Citizen Journalists

I thought I’d suggest a couple of last-minute gift ideas for those citizen journalists or want-to-be reporters that you know. These books offer great information and a historical perspective on the citizen journalism movement:

“Couch Potatoes Sprout: The Rise of Online Community Journalism” was written by Jack Driscoll and can be found at

“Handbook for Citizen Journalists” was written by Ron Ross and Susan Carson Cormier and can be purchased as an e-book at

“We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People” was written by Dan Gillmor and can be bought at

Happy holidays!
