La Tour Eiffel fête ses 120 ans
.
La Tour Eiffel, symbole de Paris et monument payant le plus visité au monde, fête ce mois-ci son 120e anniversaire. Plusieurs manifestations, dont une exposition à l'Hôtel de Ville et un film réalisé par Charles Berling, rendent hommage à l'ingénieur Gustave Eiffel. Par Marie-Hélène Paramelle
.
Depuis le 7 mai et jusqu'au 29 août, la Mairie de Paris consacre une exposition au père de la fameuse silhouette inscrite dans le ciel parisien.
.
Baptisée "Gustave Eiffel, magicien de fer", elle évoque la vie et l'oeuvre de cet ingénieur d'exception grâce à de nombreux documents originaux. Une grande partie de l'exposition détaille la genèse du monument historique : intentions concurrentes ou encore idées de transformations.
.
Surtout, l'exposition nous rappelle que l'ingénieur ne se limita pas aux constructions parisiennes. En témoignent le viaduc de Garabit ou la structure interne de la statue de la Liberté qui trône à New-York.
.
Une autre partie de la manifestation nous emmène dans l'intimité de l'ingénieur, célèbre et pourtant méconnu.
.
Découvrir l'homme qui se cache derrière la Tour Eiffel est aussi l'objectif du premier film de Charles Berling, Sur les traces de Gustave Eiffel , disponible en DVD le 20 mai.
.
L'acteur, qui a réalisé et conçu le film avec sa compagne Virginie Couperie-Eiffel, descendante du bâtisseur, souhaitait allier mémoire familiale et mémoire historique.
.
S'appuyant sur des témoignages des descendants et sur des archives du Musée d'Orsay, Charles Berling brosse le portrait intime de ce père bourgeois de cinq enfants et infatigable entrepreneur, sans taire les échecs et les succès d'une carrière en dents de scie.
.
Après s'être refait une beauté en mars dernier, puisqu'elle a été entièrement repeinte, la Tour Eiffel sera pour un moment encore au centre de toutes les attentions.
.
Le traditionnel feu d'artifice du 14 juillet lui rendra hommage, ainsi qu'à son créateur. Une autre exposition retracera, du 15 mai au 31 décembre, "L'épopée de la Tour Eiffel" au premier étage et dans les escaliers du monument.

Wikinews is a free-content news source wiki and a project of the Wikimedia Foundation. The site works through collaborative journalism. Jimmy Wales has distinguished Wikinews from Wikipedia by saying "on Wikinews, each story is to be written as a news story as opposed to an encyclopedia article."[2] The neutral point of view policy espoused in Wikinews distinguishes it from other citizen journalism efforts such as Indymedia and OhmyNews.[3] In contrast to most projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikinews allows original work under the form of original reporting and interviews.[4] The English Wikinews is the only Wikimedia site that grants press passes to reporters endorsed by the local community.[5]

Topics in journalism
Professional issues

Citizen journalism (also known as "public", "participatory", "democratic"[1] or "street journalism"[2]) is the concept of members of the public "playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing and disseminating news and information," according to the seminal 2003 report
We Media: How Audiences are Shaping the Future of News and Information.[3]
Authors Bowman and Willis say:
"The intent of this participation is to provide independent, reliable, accurate, wide-ranging and relevant information that a democracy requires."
.
Citizen journalism should not be confused with community journalism or civic journalism, which are practiced by professional journalists, or collaborative journalism, which is practiced by professional and non-professional journalists working together. Citizen journalism is a specific form of citizen media as well as user generated content.
.
Mark Glaser, a freelance journalist who frequently writes on new media issues, said in 2006:[4]
The idea behind citizen journalism is that people without professional journalism training can use the tools of modern technology and the global distribution of the Internet to create, augment or fact-check media on their own or in collaboration with others.
.
For example, you might write about a city council meeting on your blog or in an online forum. Or you could fact-check a newspaper article from the mainstream media and point out factual errors or bias on your blog. Or you might snap a digital photo of a newsworthy event happening in your town and post it online. Or you might videotape a similar event and post it on a site such as YouTube.
.
In What is Participatory Journalism?
J. D. Lasica classifies media for citizen journalism into the following types:
.
1 - Audience participation (such as user comments attached to news stories, personal blogs, photos or video footage captured from personal mobile cameras, or local news written by residents of a community)
.
2 - Independent news and information Websites (Consumer Reports, the Drudge Report)
Full-fledged participatory news sites (NowPublic, OhmyNews, GroundReport)
Collaborative and contributory media sites (Slashdot, Kuro5hin, Newsvine)
Other kinds of "thin media." (mailing lists, email newsletters)
Personal broadcasting sites (video broadcast sites such as KenRadio).
New media theorist Terry Flew states that there are 3 elements "critical to the rise of citizen journalism and citizen media": open publishing, collaborative editing and distributed content.[6]
