What are you reporting on?

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

The concept is deceptively simple. Just ask reporters to share what they’re reporting on with other reporters and the public. Then, let them network with each other for advice/tips/a sounding board on similar stories. Let the public vote up, digg-style, topics they want to read about.

I don’t know if it’ll work, but I like the idea, which is apparently Ryan Sholin‘s.

I saw it because when Mindy McAdams joined the Facebook group, “What are you reporting on?”, it showed up in my Facebook newsfeed. When I went to the group I saw the Twitter account and started following it. I only share this process to show you why social networking sites are awesome, not just for posting party pictures or stalking old friends, but also for finding out about projects I’d never have heard about.

Definitely something to keep an eye on.
