Interesting citizen journalism experiment by the Washington Post, which invited people to share their stories and photos from Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity (and/or Fear). They used a new tool from a company called Intersect, which enables people to post stories about the intersection of a given time and place. This is not in-depth journalism, but offers many personal insights on this interesting event.
