I went to the panel discussion in CU of the book Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making.
The panelists had a lot of arguments on the kind of power that the global elites are having on the ordinary people on this planet and the power structure and its shifting. A student asked the question of the responsibility of journalist. I guess I can mention my view of the power shifting of the future by answering this question.
In addition of asking the responsibility of journalist, I think it is equally important to ask what is fun of journalism, and if you treat journalism as an art what journalism is about, what is true essence of it, how do you pursue this art, and as you are trying to bring out the true essence of journalism, what is blocking you?
The future is to empower the professionals to bring out the true value of their professions. This is a grassroots movement powered by the web and social software, participated by all the people in society. This is my view.
