BrooWaha: Mobilizing citizen journalists

By Poh Si Teng, published on Apr 19, 2007

BrooWaha founder Ariel Vardi talks about how his publication utilizes Web 2.0 applications to make news media more inclusive. Poh Si: Why did you develop BrooWaha? Ariel: I created BrooWaha during my last quarter at Georgia Tech, where I was getting my Masters Degree in Computer Science. I was very busy studying and didn't have a lot of time to explore Atlanta. I looked for a website that captured the vibe of the city where I could get some local gossip and news. I was only able to find the online versions of local newspapers that I found very "old school" and often disconnected from the... (more)

La Haine, now in the US

By Ariel, published on Apr 18, 2007

...DVD was released today by The Criterion Collection, a privately held company that distributes authoritative consumer versions of 'important classic and contemporary films' on DVD. It can be bought online from Amazon . For your viewing pleasure, I have included the movie's trailer, so that BrooWaha's readers can get a glimpse of this masterpiece which took way too long to get to the U.S. Translation of the trailer: "It's the story a man who falls from the roof of a skyscraper. He keeps himself calm by repeating the same words. 'So far, so good'. 'So far, so good'. 'So far, so... (more)

Every citizen is a reporter - the story of OhmyNews

By Josh Marks, published on Apr 10, 2007

...launched an English language version, OhmyNews International, and over 40,000 citizen reporters now contribute to both the English and Korean language sites. With major news outlets such as MSNBC.com posting photos, videos and text from citizen reporters and citizen journalism sites such as BrooWaha sparking heated debate in academic circles and editorial pages of major newspapers, OhmyNews has seemingly charted a steady course for itself since it began in 2000 and is now poised to take advantage of the newfound interest in citizen journalism. While most of the articles are written by... (more)

Local California Paper Taps into Citizen Journalism Market

By Steven Lane, published on Mar 25, 2007

...making money. Money is good, anyone who says it isn't is either a liar or has a trust fund. Let's look at the "citizen journalism" part of this project. Writers will submit stories to be published on the local YourHub.com website. Very similar to how this article will be published here on BrooWaha, Los Angeles, but then there will be weekly "editorial" decisions on what is too be published in the "PRINT" edition. So, the end result is that there is a mini newspaper, with free unpaid content, partnered with a newspaper that might well go the way of the dinosaurs. This is a mini newspaper ... (more)

Freelance Writing: An Interview With Mayrav Saar

By Ariel, published on Mar 16, 2007

Three months ago, the Los Angeles Times published an article by Mayrav Saar about BrooWaha and citizen reporting's mass appeal. Mayrav is the co-editor of Fishbowl LA and a freelance columnist for the Orange County Register. As she says in her blog, she is "fearlessly writing the stuff other women are too smart to say out loud". She gracefully accepted to grant BrooWaha an interview to talk about her career as a journalist and her thoughts on the future of the profession. Why did you become a journalist? I took summer school one year in high school to get a class credit out of the... (more)

When Will BrooWaha Catch On in San Francisco

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 15, 2007

I cannot believe that a hip, supposedly on the cutting-edge town like San Francisco hasn't taken immediately to a great journalistic vehicle like BrooWaha. If you look at the incredible news communities that already exist with BrooWaha LA and BrooWaha New York, you can see that this type of online publication is an innovative, one-of-a-kind concept that has caught on like wildfire in those two cities. Although the content on SF BrooWaha up to this point has been high in quality, I just can't understand why there isn't a huge rush of better writing. Where are the great writers out there... (more)

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

By Ed Attanasio, published on Mar 12, 2007

... for almost an hour. The man is so cool and just a great guy. I know this sounds cliché, but I feel as though I’ve known him forever. I got a big brother vibe from the guy right off. I am putting my interview with Mark together in an article I will undoubtedly be publishing soon on SF BrooWaha. If you live in this city, especially in the areas of Telegraph Hill, North Beach, the Marina or Pacific Heights, keep your eyes peeled for these parrots. Their unique personalities are just as colorful as their plumage and markings. They are truly a special part of San Francisco and its... (more)

The Visa Hustle

By V, published on Feb 28, 2007

...in the fashion game, but this kind of self-importance, bitterness, megalomania, vacuousness and outright rudeness, knows no geographical boundaries I am sad to report. I have known many Brandts (name changed because I am superstitious enough to fear the unknown and I worry that two hundred Broowaha readers psychically uttering his name, may waken the beast from who I have not heard for several days) in my years in this industry both here and abroad. It is however an anonymous vocation that we share Brandt and I, so it was an unexpected horror when I actually got to see a picture of... (more)
