News-specs? CNN wants citizen journalists to contribute via Google Glass

CNN’s iReport is probably about as mainstream a citizen journalist platform as you’ll find, giving budding hacks a genuine conduit for making it into the mainstream media. Indeed, CNN producers monitor the contributions, and if something is unique or compelling enough, well, you never know.

Thus far, you’ve been able to post iReports through the Web or CNN mobile apps. But now, you’re also able to share photos and videos with CNN directly from Google Glass. Granted, that’s still a relatively small target market, but if  you are an active Google Glass Explorer and citizen hack, it’s an extra option for you.
