Crowdsourcing and community with Terry Parris, Jr.

So there’s this term “shoe leather reporting,” right? You wear shoes and you go out into the community and you knock on doors and you ask questions. And that’s sort of been a term for a very long time. It’s still a term. It’s still a thing that everybody does. I like that idea and I like the concept and from my perspective, I find ways to do the same thing but I can do them digitally. I can do them with Facebook groups or listservs or forums or any sort of conversation that is happening on the Internet. It’s “social shoe leather journalism.”
