<< NYT AFP Sues Google | The Grid? >>


Jon Dube notes:

A new multimedia “citizen journalism” site called NowPublic is getting ready to launch. The site will allow readers to “assign” stories to reporters; sign up to be a reporter; file photographs, video and MP3s; and “build your own newsroom” and follow the news with “watchlists.”

Well, that sounds sort’ve awesome, huh?

The site will allow readers to “assign” stories

That perked me right up. . .wow, why didn't anyone ever think of that before?


We’ve quietly been working on the next release of NowPublic and it is now – finally - in testing. We still have a few seats left in our beta group so if you’re interested in getting an advanced viewing before we launch please let me know.

In the coming weeks I’ll post additional details here but please feel free to contact me in the meantime. My email address is calder(at)nowpublic(dot)com.
