Excerpts:

Open journalism’s core principles are transparency, responsiveness, participation, collaboration and connection. Open doesn’t mean everything is shared with everyone; it’s a framework based on serving citizens and customers that applies whether content is free or paid.

 

What if, instead of creating redundant resources, news providers drew some information from online volunteer efforts such as Crisis Commons, which draws people together to create shared resources amid crisis, and invested their energy in original reporting?

 

Action Steps for Newspeople: 1. Build transparency into every step 2. Build a culture of responsiveness 3. Make participation a public exchange with benefits for all 4. Learn from collaboration success and expand peer-to-peer partnership 5. Embrace journalism’s role in a networked information universe
