Jimmy Wales on the future of the media

The Times has an interesting interview with Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, on how the media will evolve to work alongside blogs, wikis and the other tools of Web 2.0:

"What we will see is a set of hybrid models with an increasing amount of citizen participation in the gathering of news and in feedback and in reporting and analysing the news. And at the same time, we’ll have professional organisations managing the process – basically being the core framework."

Citizen journalist is a horrible phrase. I much prefer the bloggertariat or bloggerati ;)
