Open Source Innovating

Posted by Jacqueline on October 12, 2007

One of the many things that makes the Knight News Challenge unique is that you can make your entry open to the public, so they can read, comment, and help improve your plan.  Even people who don’t plan to enter the contest can participate this way, so if you have something to say about community journalism, online news, or just want to have a hand in what could be a revolutionary innovation, go here to sign up and begin.

Although in my previous post, I said it is not the critic who counts; however, a some constructive criticism can go a long way towards helping an entrepreneur get started.  Besides, it’s an easy way to do your part and help citizen and community journalism grow into something that truly changes the world.

  1. Hi Jacqueline,

    I had a look at the website, looking for interesting projects in the open source area, but I didn’t find any. Did you?

    Hi Roberto – these projects are all open source, open standards – in fact, that is one of the main focuses of the Knight News Challenge –
