Northeastern University Graduate Student Belen Bogado produced this video for her story, Steve Garfield, citizen journalism and the others. She spoke with Adam Gaffin:
Adam Gaffin also believes that Garfield’s future is full of possibilities, especially in the current context print media is facing. Gaffin says “Steve is something of a pathfinder, showing how to use relatively simple tools to do some amazing storytelling. I think you'll see more of that in mainstream media partly because they are looking for less expensive ways to tell stories (death spirals and all that), partly because people like Steve are turning out some stuff that's every bit as good as, if not better than, what fulltime reporters can do.”She did a great job. Belen also got quotes from Dan Gillmor, Andrew Keen, and Tish Grier.
