Dave Winer – Scripting News

Posted on 04. Oct, 2007 by in Social Networking, Tools, Uncategorized

Your work in networked/citizen/collaborative journalism.

I started blogging, RSS and podcasting, and have worked with various organizations to level the playing field so that anyone can participate in gathering news.

What are your goals?

Better information flow so we can have richer lives and solve the big problems before us.

Notable achievements?

I’ve created several award-winning products, open standards, and developed new technologies. I was one of the first bloggers, podcasters, online publishers.

Lesson you’ve learned (including mistakes you’ve made)

Progress comes slowly.

What’s next? What do you need to get to the next level?

I’d like to see open newsrooms so bloggers can start working together collaboratively. I think the local professional news organizations should host this.

Anyone you’d particularly like to talk with, learn from

I wrote up the two ideas I’d like to discuss at the conference here…
