Former Scoopt head honcho blogs for Frontline
Great to have Scoopt founder Kyle MacRae blogging with us here at From the Frontline. Kyle founded the world’s first citizen journalism photograph agency – Scoopt.com – in 2005. He’s been at the forefront of digital media industry ever since. He sold the company to Getty Imgaes a year ago and just last week left the company.
His blog will tackle all the weighty issues surrounding “user generated content”, citizen journalism and the intersection of mainstream and digital media. He’ll also (probably) be blogging the story of Scoopt from the initial idea he had while cycling in the South of France to the day he left the company in the hands of one of the world’s largest photo agencies. Welcome Kyle. For the RSS subscription savvy the feed is here.
