The Year of the Digital Citizen

Via the BBC:

2005 was arguably the year citizens really started to do it for themselves. Raising mobiles aloft, they did not just talk and text, they snapped, shared and reported the world around them.

Fascinating little article that touches on braodband in the UK, videoblogging, news, and more.

Also reminds me of this fellow that snapped his picture with his Treo while the plane he was on was de-pressurizing, and this piece at USA Today about video sharing Web sites.
