Social Media Challenge #1c – What blogging means for the future of journalism

Concluding our first series of posts, here are the group’s thoughts on what the good and bad of blogging mean for where journalism is headed. You can review the good (both posts) and bad through these links.

An additional note: I’ve noticed that this approach to posting responses is perpetually out-of-date, so I’m revising it. From the next posting assignment on, you’ll be posting your links and descriptions to the comment section of each Social Media Challenge. Since you’ve already gotten (and completed) SMC #2, I’ll post those responses in the old way, but from here on in, post your links in the comments for the relevant assignment.
