English-language Ohmynews Goes Live
An English-language version of the Korean online news service Ohmynews is now online. First launched four years ago, Ohmynews is founded on the idea of the "citizen reporter", who contribute the majority of content to the website. Since its launch, the news service has attained considerable influence in South Korea, and is widely recognized as having helped elect the country's president, Roh Moo Hyun. Dan Gillmor provides a good, brief history in this article for the Mercury News.
