Off the Bus morphs in to HuffPo blogging army

Jay Rosen and Ariana Huffington have a great post up, congratulating the 12, 000+ people who worked on Off the Bus, the HuffPo/NewAssignment.net participatory journalism elections project.

 Big news: it worked. Next news: HuffPo is inviting all the participants who want to continue to write for HuffPo to post their data here (at survey monkey)

Jay’s money quote: “The same wave of low-cost, newly practical participation that led record numbers of Americans to give money, and join networks for the candidates, also led 12,000 people to sign up for OffTheBus and participate in politics by covering the campaign.”
