Mashup Journalism

Open source journalism, also called citizen journalism, is nothing new, but I was intrigued to come across something called "SI journalism". This turns out to be re-using data gathered during the journalistic process to create mashups of one kind or another. The proposed name is "Structured Information Journalism", which has all the grace of a dodo in flight.

I'm not quite sure what it should be called - perhaps mashup journalism, which has a suitably tough, streetwise quality about it. Any other suggestions?
