Kottke followed citizen journalists covering yesterday’s airplane crash in the Hudson River and the Flickr stream shows photos taken from professional photographers to people on the scene.

It goes without saying that you always need your camera handy.

Yahoo and Reuters are launching a new service which could turn the millions of people with digital cameras and camera phones into photojournalists. Amateur photographers will be able to submit their digital news photos and videos to the service.

These may then be placed throughout Reuters.com and Yahoo News. Reuters also plans to distribute some of the submissions to print, online and broadcast media outlets which subscribe to its news service. Reuters aims to develop a service devoted entirely to user-submitted photographs and video.

The project is inline with the growth of ‘citizen journalism’, with bloggers setting up local news sites.

It’s all connected.
