Assignment Zero (, a collaboration between Wired magazine and NewAssignment.Net, the experimental journalism site established by Jay Rosen, a professor of journalism at New York University, intends to use not only the wisdom of the crowd, but their combined reporting efforts — an approach that has come to be called “crowdsourcing.”

The idea is to apply to journalism the same open-source model of Web-enabled collaboration that produced the operating system Linux, the Web browser Mozilla and the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

There have been people doing the same stuff as above in there own personal blogs and websites but a central portal will surely provide them to express there ideas and experts review them. Assignment Zero will use custom software to create a virtual newsroom that allows collaboration on a discrete, but open-ended, topic from the very start.

The current topic is crowdsourcing, so the phenomenon will be used to cover the phenomenon itself. Citizens with a variety of expertise — the “people formerly known as the audience,” — will produce work to be iterated and edited by experienced journalists.

Explore the innovation here. Who knows if in future this develops to be a news portal with same standards as Wikipedia!
