In this New York Times story, former Britannica editor Robert McHenry said of Wikinews “The naïveté is stunning.”
Indeed. The same could be said of everything that we do around here. “Edit this page” and all that good stuff.
I accept the compliment. :-)
Wikinews is our collaborative writing project to report the news on a wide variety of subjects using a wiki. On Saturday, February 5, 2005, 22:00 UTC (timezone conversion), we are having an open IRC chat on how Wikinews can interact with weblogs. If you’re a blogger, and you’d like to know more about how Wikinews works, how you can use Wikinews stories in your blog, and how you can contribute, this is an event you should attend. The chat will take place on irc.freenode.net in the #wikinews channel. Agenda and more information on how to connect: [[m:Wikinews_Chat]] .
Spread the word!
