Italian mainstream daily newspaper Il Corriere della Sera interviewed the curator of NOMFP, Filippo Sensi, who explained how the Guardian got in touch with him over a video published on the blog allegedly depicting Adam Werritty accompanying the defence secretary during a 2009 visit to the president of Sri Lanka.
Sensi highlighted how the video was found just through an ordinary YouTube search and therefore was not obtained through any kind of “espionage tactic”: the video was already in the public domain and what the blog actually did was simply to “connect” the information to the investigation launched by the Guardian.
The blog was quoted in the Observer’s article on the Fox case on Sunday, October 9th and it bears evidence to the increasing importance and integration of grassroots media with mainstream media.
Steve Jobs has died at the age of 56. Think what you will about Apple’s former CEO, the company made serious strives to make citizen journalism more of a reality, even though Jobs himself felt that videos on YouTube were “amateur hour.” The iPhone and podcasting were innovations that allowed citizens to record events and broadcast them. Whole industries of devices followed the introduction of the iPhone that made citizen journalism an act you can do with just one small device. And iPad is just starting to show its potential in journalism.
I had just finished reading two books about the history of Apple and the two Steves. It’s fascinating stuff. But I am saddened that such an influential force is no longer with us.

Cyndy Green of Video Journalism is just like me. When she hears of a major news item, she goes straight to YouTube to find videos of it. With the recent East Coast quake, she was frustrated at the lack of actual earthquake footage. It was mostly people reporting how they felt. But a (IMO) hilarious sideshow is the fake earthquake video phenomenon.
