Debra Galant on Baristanet.com
A little while back I interviewed Debbie Galant, editor and co-founder of the North Jersey publication Baristanet.com, one of the most successful of the 800-plus citizen media sites in the nation. They're pulling in close to six figures a year, and Debbie tells how they've achieved that level of success while adhering to principles of journalism in this 28-minute video interview.
The video is part of the Center for Citizen Media's Principles of Citizen Journalism project. It's one of the most thorough citizen media interviews I've seen anywhere.
Quote: "We own up to making a mistake, and that's part of the process of being edited by your readers."

JD, is there a way to make this video embeddable? I'm doing a post on something new that Debbie is doing today at the IdeaLab blog and I'd love to have this as a live illustration/cool supplement.
