Julian Lee at The Sydney Morning Herald had this to say:

DOES the launch of Channel Ten’s service allowing viewers to SMS, MMS or email live video footage, pictures and text messages direct to its newsroom herald the start of a boom in user-generated content? Based on a trial during this week’s cyclone in Queensland and on the volume of content that flowed into London newsrooms following the bombings last July, Ten believes citizen journalism is the way forward.

The London service they are talking about is Scoopt, I think. A great blog, if you want more on Citizen Journalism, is Citizen Paine.
