We are at the beginning of a Golden Age of journalism — but it is not journalism as we have known it. Media futurists have predicted that by 2021, "citizens will produce 50 percent of the news peer-to-peer."

This report details the important considerations when exploring a collaborative effort between audience and traditional media organizations.
