I’ve Become A Citizen Journalist!

I recently posted about New Yorkers stampeding Trader Joe’s during the New York City opening weekend. I captured the action on my Treo 650 during a date with my wife to that fine store, which we couldn’t get into after all. Well, that picture of the stampede was discovered by the Gothamist, via Flickr. My picture now anchors a passionate discussion about Trader Joe’s. So this is one of the utilities of tagging public photos: I’m now a citizen photojournalist, and facilitator of community debate! I just wish a big news outlet would pick up my experience and pictures aboard the Delta hell ride.
