Journalism is outlining

Doc Searls

Back when Sandy was going on, I stayed in Boston and blogged it live. That is, if you add up all the stuff reported about Sandy — in newspapers, on radio and TV, in blogs, in tweets, on social media — you’ve got enough info-splatter to call “coverage,” but splatter isn’t what Jeff needs.
