The web needs more journalist entrepreneurs

After Om Malik, Rafat Ali, Jason Calacanis and Nick Denton, who?
Which journalist will break out from the pack, build his own media brand, doing stories that only he/she likes?

Noting that this is a great time to start new media projects, Dan Gilmore wants more young journalists to break free from the defeatist thinking of old media CEOs, go out and create the best of traditional media, mixing that up with the best of new media.

Eventually you might end up with valuable brands in the print, TV, radio and online spaces.

Exhorting young journalists to become part of a dynamic new generation, Dan says,

( generation that) figures out how to produce and, yes, sell the journalism we desperately need as a society and as citizens of a shrinking planet."
