ISSUE: Are bloggers journalists? We'll consider this soon

Rebecca MacKinnon, a former CNN China correspondent who is now at the
Berkman Center at Harvard, was interviewed tonight on WGBH-Channel 2 in
Boston about whether bloggers should be considered journalists. There is a
significant debate going on about this and we will consider it as an issue
during some class later in October.

We'll take a half-hour for that class to view the interview. You can see
the page which links to the QuickTime video of the interview at:


But no need to read it now -- we'll schedule it.
