At its core, We the Media is a book about people. People such as Glenn Reynolds, a law professor whose blog postings on technology and liberty garnered him enough readers and influence that he became a source for professional journalists. Or Joe Trippi, who almost took Howard Dean to the presidential nomination using Net-enabled grassroots politics. Or Iraqi blogger Zayed, whose Healing Irag blog scooped Big Media. Or "acridrabbit," who inspired an online community to become investigative reporters and discover that sad tale of the dying Kaycee Nichols' was a hoax. Give the people tools to make the news, Gillmor asserts, and they will. Journalism in the 21st century will be fundamentally different from the Big Media that prevails today. We the Media casts light on the future of journalism, and invites us all to be part of it.
