Assignment Zero


AssignmentZero, a peer produced journalism – or “citzen journalism” – project. Wired coined the term “crowdsourcing”, so if they can’t make it work, no one can. I’m skeptical about whether any of this stuff can be successful due to the headaches of managing large teams – Wikipedia broke out, but WikiNews didn’t. The project is funded by Reuters, but it’s a non-profit.
