About the author
Dan Gillmor is a noted American technology writer and former columnist for the San Jose Mercury News. He was one of the leading chroniclers of the Silicon Valley dot com boom and its subsequent bust. Gillmor is also the author of a popular weblog, at http://bayosphere.com/blog/dangillmor, covering technology news and the Northern California technology business sector, criticizing rigid enforcement of copyrights, and commenting on politics from a frequently left-wing perspective.

Gillmor worked at the Detroit Free Press and the Kansas City Times before moving to the San Jose Mercury News in 1994. He left the Mercury News in January 2005 to work on a grassroots journalism project, called Bayosphere, launched in May 2005.

He is also the author of a book, We the Media, published in August 2004, chronicling how the Internet is helping independent journalists combat the consolidation of traditional media. He has released the book under a Creative Commons license.
