Oh the power of the Internet and social media. After weeks of research on citizen journalism, days of writing, and hours of discussing the powers of citizen journalism I wanted to just relax tonight...But then my 16-year old son shared this clip with me. He found it on one of his friends MySpace page. This is exactly how grassroots journalism, citizen journalism, networked journalism...whatever you want to call it works!
Unfortunately...the video option is down, so you'll have to go HERE to see this most awesome video.
When I worked at AFN Eifel we had a segment called pass the mic. This was for Presidents Day 2000. The little boy who looks like he just saw a ghost is my now 6'5" son. The goofy guy in the 'what was I thinking' glasses...well that is me. Enjoy!
