Moderated by Stacy Bond from AudioLuxe with a panel consisting of:
Evan Hansen, Wired News & Assignment Zero
Chris Tolles, Topix.com
Kevin Rose, Digg.com

As opportunities to participate become more and more common, will news consumers come to expect, or even demand, participation?
What distinguishes a “social news participant” from a “citizen journalist?”
What can traditional news sites learn from social news aggregators?
