After reading more and more chapters of We The Media, the topics and ideas that Gilmore mentions keeps me thinking. It is truly inspiring to read about how everyday people now with today’s technology can become journalists and the world of writing is much more open and available to everyone. I never realized how restrictive writing was for journalists in the past, and how different it is today. Today, there is such a liberty and freedom felt and expressed that it is mind boggling. When Gilmore wrote about how amazing it was that new technologies were everywhere, camera were in all places, and in the smallest gadgets. He mentioned how his phone has a built in camera, and laptops have built in cameras. The world is growing exponentially and who knows where it will be in the future! It has already grown so much since the days when journalists were fired and got into serious trouble for expressing their views to the masses.
