Good points. I'll try to understand at least some of it and comment in my blog, sometime.

One observation now. You: "But in order to overrun media..." and Rosen:"...professional journalism is no longer sovereign over territory it once easily controlled. Not sovereign doesn't mean you go away. It means your influence isn't singular anymore."

I don't (because I'm journalist :-)) see any particular need for the media being overrun. I do, however, see lots of opportunities in the co-existence of "traditional" media and grassroots media.

Oh yes, my mistake. I meant to say "in order to overrun media" in a slightly sarcastic sense, referring to the previous sentence. Sorry.

I completely agree: There will be a coexistence. An uneasy one, but a coexistence. Blogs will cover things media can't and vice versa. Big stories will still be for the big media, because they are protected by big pockets.

"I am expecting much from Haltia (and some other political bloggers), now that the Helsinki City Council is starting its work."

No pressure what so ever ;) I promise to try my best though.

"Uneasy coexistence"? For some reason the journalist and the blogger in me seem to get together just fine.

It's a good thing, too :)

I mean - my hope is that they will be watchdogs for each other. Not too cozy, but not too friendly either. And many will, of course, have no problem being both.
