"I wonder why there arent (are there?) any wiki-sites for discussing / (de)constructing such things as the whole Plame case or politics-business ties. Such format would be superior for trying to keep up with all the details."i didnt answer at the time - and i don't know the answer.
now (via cursor) - apparently there's a conference: Jay Rosen:
"In this session (here’s the BloggerCon IV schedule and the participants) we are going to figure out how we can use the Net to actually do readers-know-more-than-we-do reporting (also known as open source journalism) and break news with it. Because if users really do know more than “we” do; if it really is possible to tap that kind of distributed knowledge and inform a larger public with it, then we should be able to do stories with these methods that would elude more traditional forms of reporting… Right?"(related: rosen in wapo.)
Is a wiki the same thing as 'open source journalism'?
