Open source news

In the same vain, as wikinews, last week, France’s Le Monde became the first major newspaper to offer its readers the opportunity to create and contribute blogs. It’s the first real acknowledgement by "big traditional media" that readers are looking to find and share their own voice and want to read content created from a variety of different perspectives. It represents a shift from the current trend, where media are simply getting journalists to write their own blogs.

Le Monde’s blogs are accessible direct from the home page of the newspaper, and feature jounalists and readers’ blog at the same level, sorted by categories. One blog worth a look at is Copier - Decoller by Tendance floue a collective of 12 photographs (in French).
