Citizens have been busy reporting the horrific events in Japan in recent weeks.
As Ron Ross, co-founder of the National Association of Citizen Journalists, wrote in his blog recently, many of these reports can be found on CitizenTube, YouTube’s news and politics blog.
Ross also offered some tips so citizen journalists worldwide can prepare to cover similar news events, although it is hoped it won’t happen to you. You can read his blog at: http://ronrosstoday.com/?p=384.
