    This week YouTube announced it’s very own citizen news channel, and assigned a news manager named Olivia Ma, to run it. You can apparently reach her at [email protected]

    Just for fun, here is our own Dan Gillmor, talking on YouTube about how web censorship is affecting citizen journalism, posted prior to the launch of the YouTube Citizen news channel. Hopefully we will see more of him and his students, and the great work of such projects as Global Voices there.
