Media: Citizen Journalism Gets $11M
febrero 24, 2006
OhmyNews, one of the world's most successful citizen journalism sites has gotten an $11-million investment from Softbank.
The site — which has built a team of almost 40,000 citizen reporters — will use the investment to launch a Japanese news site, the first “stepping stone” of the soon-to-be-formed OhmyNews International. It also plans to develop its video journalism arm and improve its English-language edition.
