Dan Gillmor visits Prague and learns of guerrilla journalism. Here’s an odd little bit:

I was hugely impressed with some software Tacic is developing with several colleagues from other organizations. It’s a Web-based editing and production system that allows journalists to post stories and pictures from within Web browsers, wherever they may be. Cobbled together with low-cost and free software tools – necessity being, as always, the mother of invention – the editing and production package is already in use by several Web sites.

So we wrote Gillmor and asked if he referred to Blogger. Nope: Something way better, he says.

Blogger already has lots of competition (Manila, Pitas), though Blogger holds the hearts and minds of the A-list Web intelligentsia. Whatever could this new animal be? Inquiring minds want to know.
