Who said journalism is a profession ?
Journalism is a need!
The web (yes, the internet, but the "web" more then other services)
allow us to become the media. So why not ?
Web articles can be live articles as contrary to paper printed ones, which can live longer but are a snapshot of a period in time, an information that takes its value as an historical document also. Web articles hardly take this historical value if mutable in time, and newspaper online try to handle this by repositoring articles in chronological order in stable addresses. I, as a single, can hardly do the same thing, or - probably - don't want to. Not now. I want to be alive! As a side-note. This website is in a CVS repository, so technically you DO CAN extract a snapshot of a precise point in time.
