1. This article was written in 2009. What have been the shifts in citizen journalism in the past two years? Has the increase in people using social media increased citizen journalism participation?

2. When I think of citizen journalism, I think of YouTube and Twitter. Will communication shift in the future to develop new forms of citizen journalism? Will it be centralized, or how will it be manifested?

3. The article discusses how many citizen journalism efforts take place across various media outlets. What percent of citizens journalism can be described as transmedia?
