New app lets iPhone users be journalists

TechCrunch reports that CBS News recently released Eyemobile for Eyephone, an application that lets you submit photo and video content via your phone to the company's new citizen journalism site. This trend toward citizen journalism is very interesting -- and a good example of the participatory nature of Web 2.0. I think it's only going to grow.
