ABSTRACT
The article announces the launch of The Rapidian, a web-based experiment in citizen journalism in Grand Rapids, Michigan designed to see if the medium can leverage some of the power of technologies and the energy of citizens to help infuse the community with information at the local level. The concept was borne out of a climate where traditional news outlets are shrinking despite the consistent need for news and information. It reveals that the issue confronting the medium is whether it will become another vehicle for advertisers.
