Open Park: Making News Open Source and Collaborative

Open Park: Intro

Collaborative online news production: Introducing Open Park

Welcome to Open Park, a project I am developing at the MIT Center for Future Civic Media [C4FCM] and which lets journalists and media producers working on the same beat or topic share expertise and resources, as well as engage in an open discussion on how best to introduce the new practice of non-competition-focused collaborative journalism and to build the tools and services to support it.

Share your thoughts, ideas and concerns on the future of news here, use our current new media tools, links and resources, and most of all, have a go at real-time, real-life collaboration with your selected partners-media producers on issues that matter to you, and on the non-reported, under-covered, unsung persons and stories.

OP's Forums is where it is all taking place for now, mostly in the OP Notebook and the General Discussion section, so pick your beat or topic and join the flow in the Forums! And don't forget to check our OP Staff Blog for news.
