A call to arms from Bart Brouwers, editor-in-chief of Dutch newspaper Sp!ts:
“[L]et’s take the strong investigative roots, in depth reporting and power of the facts from the old world, and combine it with the transparancy, interaction, speed and connectivity of the new one. And moreover, let’s finally place the involved, knowing and interested audience on a pedestal and work together for even better results. Augmented Journalism is where bloggers and reporters meet and society can benefit from the best practices of the two of them,” he writes.
Brouwers is proposing a book – a guide to Augmented Journalism, with contributions from visitors to True/Slant ‘being journalists, bloggers or none of both’.
