Knight launches citizen media resource
by Mathew

The Knight Foundation has launched a website aimed at helping “citizen journalism” or community media operations find resources and best practices. Called the Knight Citizen News Network, it’s managed by J-Lab — the Institute for Interactive Journalism — with content created in part by Dan Gillmor of the Center for Citizen Media and by Amy Gahran of I, Reporter (as well as Right Conversations and the Poynter Institute’s E-Media Tidbits).  There’s a press release with more info here. The resources at include:

* A database of U.S. citizen media sites, searchable by keyword, town or state and displayed on a Google map.
* A “Things We Like” feature.
* An interactive overview of the “Principles of Citizen Journalism,” with more than 40 audio and video interviews.
* Citizen media research.
* Case studies on how to train citizen journalists.
* A list of resources.
