We the Media
We the Media is a book written by Dan Gillmor, published in 2004 by O'Reilly (ISBN 0596007337). It is also available for free online, under a Creative Commons by-nc-sa license. The book will be release into the public domain 14 years after publication.
The book is about how the proliferation of grassroots internet journalists (bloggers) has changed the way news is handled. One of the book's main points is that a few big media corporations cannot control the news we get any longer, now that news is being published in real-time, available to everybody, via the Internet. The book received widespread praise from the demographic it covered, and mixed reviews elsewhere.
