News, as it happens

Good morning from Raleigh. I’m a guest of WRAL, and CBC New Media this morning, before my lunchtime appearance at <a href=””>TIMA</a>.
After a chat wtih Angela Connor about user-generated content and news, I noticed this post about <a href=””>NewMediaJim interviewing Jordin Sparks from American Idol,</a> in Ghana, live, via Qik. Thanks to Jeff Pulver for sending this via Twitter.
Angela is manging editor of <a href=””>GOLO</a> and this Qik post from Africa is a great example of news generated as it happens. We had a great chat about the future of such news, and I hope to catch up with Angela again soon.
