There will be scoops and really great reporting

Watch the BloggerStorm community develop, as the Iowa Caucuses start on Monday evening. Jim Moore blogs about why BloggerStorm matters:

"With the launch today of BloggerStorm to cover the Iowa presidential selection process and caucuses, Dean for America is the first campaign to embrace blogs as a way for citizens to report "on-the-ground" frontline reality to the campaign's vast audience.

BloggerStorm's network of contributors consists of individual citizens, not professional reporters. The feeds that the contributors make go directly to the website, without editing. This network of real people with real eyes and ears on the ground, linked to the website of a major candidate with very high traffic levels on the web, plus instantaneous feeds from the field, is a new development in citizen journalism and open democratic campaigning."
