More likely in the past, journalism require skills and knowledge to create a masterpiece but now most people wrote stories regarding them or eve for other people and consider themselves as a journalist. But the truth is they don't really understand what will be the effect and cause of everything they write.

Richard, your posting promted me to write about creating discussion forums around stories. I hope to experiment with this notion in print. See details in this posting from my personal blog:

Thanks Fergus - I hadn't seen theyrule.net.....

An example of online investigative reporting which implies a fourth catagory of online journalism is theyrule.net (it's been around for a few years now, and a lot of people have seen it, but oddly enough it's not really been copied).

It's an elegant and usable front end on a database of American Boards of Directors, their members, links and, amongst other things, their donations to political parties.

It does take some imagination to define theyrule.net as journalism; really, it just sets an agenda and gives users a tool to create a story which is relevant to them; but one that uses true data.

The skill set required for building theyrule.net would have included programming and interface design as well as the traditional journalist's skill of story selection.
