The Knight News Challenge
is in the third year of a program that gives away $5MM a year to
digital innovations. Do you have a big idea for informing and inspiring
a geographic community using social media, Web 2.0 tools or OpenID? How
about exchanging information via video, photos or text messaging? A way
to integrate game theory with web browsing to support local community
engagement? Come on, push the edge – we’re seeking true innovation!
to this meet up to find out how to apply, share ideas, and get a chance
to talk to KNC evangelists to find out how to apply and improve your
chances of winning funding for your great open source idea.
Check out www.newschallenge.org for more information or http://garage.newschallenge.org to start your application now.
Note: You need to RSVP to be able to attend, via Facebook, phone (847-942-6732) or email (email@example.com).
This is a truly innovative program to push the edge of what digital democracy and discourse can look like and I hope to see online journalists, media folks, technologists, activists, educators and others I’m not naming here all apply.
