Newsvine Joins Assignment Zero

Newsvine is calling its contributors to join together in the first pro-am journalism project on the web. We're teaming up with NewAssignment.Net, Wired and other sites that embrace social media. Jay Rosen, the man behind the project, asks us and other citizen media outlets: "can large groups of widely scattered people, working together voluntarily on the Net, report on something happening in their world right now, and by dividing the work wisely tell the story more completely, while hitting high standards in truth, accuracy and free expression?"

Newsvine hopes to provide a resounding answer to that question from its many talented contributors, who we think are better suited than anyone on the web to tackle the challenge of Assignment Zero. Why do we think this? Newsvine members are already organized into several ideal groups, such as The Citizen Journalist and Citizen Journalism. These groups can team up with other interested users to organize a team which will put forth contributions on the behalf of Newsvine for Assignment Zero, which Rosen describes here:

* 1. We're going to take one big, moving story--the spread of crowdsourcing and peer production methods across wired society--and with your active assistance break it down into reportable parts. Some of these parts we already have. More of them is what we need.

* 2. Then we're going to develop those parts--in the open, at the site--into pieces we can formally assign to contributors. Each piece is a part of a larger puzzle we'll be fitting together. We don't know yet how many pieces there will be.

* 3. We'll set deadlines for those pieces, and with your help find contributors who are motivated and qualified to complete them. Not for pay (we're not at that stage yet...) but for public benefit and some by-line glory in the final results. An "author" in our system can be an individual writer, a two or three-person team. A class could get an assignment. A blog plus users could do one. In an agreement with Newsvine staff, we are going to ship to them a "box" of assignments for their users to complete. It will then be up to the Newsvine community to figure out how to get those pieces done.

* 4. We'll edit what comes in and with the crowd's help verify it to the best of our ability.

* 5. Final results will probably come two months or so from now. We plan to publish in a big, splashy package at NewAssignment.Net everything that came in and made the editor's final cut. Wired will run a piece by Jeff Howe drawing off Assignment Zero. Wired will be free to pick and choose from that material and publish any portion of it, in print or online. What doesn't run at our site or at Wired.com can appear elsewhere on the Net. (We won't own your content. An Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License will apply to it.)

Pro-am means just that: a mix of professional and amateur talent. Some formatting, some freestyling. Some things decided by editors, others left to participants. We don't know what the optimal mix is yet, but we'll find it.

As you can see, some of the details are still to be ironed out, but by participating in this project with your fellow Newsviners, you have a chance to make history - by contributing to the birth of a new breed of citizen journalism.

Please discuss this project here and in the appropriate Newsvine Groups. Soon, we will appoint a person to act as the head coordinator of the Newsvine effort. This person will be the main point of contact between the Newsvine participants and the people over at NewAssignment.Net. Ideally, the person should already have a strong background of reporting under their belt here at Newsvine, as well as the organizational skill and availability to help us put our best foot forward. Newsvine staff will be largely hands-off in this project, leaving it up to the Community to do its part in Assignment Zero.

This is fantastic and kudos should go to the Newsvine team who have been at the forefront of the shift from day one! Thanks for helping to put a big piece of the puzzle out there, all of us. I have to say this quote made me laugh..

Not for pay (we're not at that stage yet...)

This actually sounds really interesting - it strikes me that with groups already active we have a lot of the division of labor taking care of itself. I'd be willing to bet that there's an active group of users centered around each of several major focal points we could address -

* Groups that have a strong collaborative dynamic could take a look at how large projects can be broken down into manageable chunks while still working towards a cohesive whole. I'm taking a (serious) look at you, Drollhouse.

* Groups with strong, explicit bias - ie atheists or conservatives or Green types - can take a moment to critically examine the dangers of self-reinforcing beliefs. I think it's a serious problem when we get the sort of cyber-balkanization going on where you only hear the voices of those that agree with you - well, we all know that there are a lot of places on the vine where we are all guilty of that.

* Groups like the aforementioned citizen journalists can take an honest look at how simple/complicated it is for any joe schmoe to make a few phone calls and learn about something. Also, I'd extend this to a few key users - Brian Ford and Benno Hansen in particular have lately jumped out at me as willing to go the extra mile to bring their readers an exclusive scoop with a personal touch.

* Niche groups can compare/contrast the role of folksonometric meta-groups to speciality magazines - what do you think, War Room? Artist Profiles? Newsvine:CNN :: your group: ??

* Newsvine Communty can take a look at how all the various people with all of their disparate (read: frequently violently opposed) perspectives can integrate into a single community. Newsvine is an organism, in spite of a LOT of internal conflict - how does that work? Can it be turned to our advantage?

Anyway that's my two cents. I'm happy to have a project and ya'll can count me in on this however it goes.

So -- I guess -- let me know how the Citizen Journalism group can participate, and -- anyone would would like to participate under that banner -- raise your hand, say aye, contact me, etc.

I see that the Newsvine Blog has requested membership in my group. Did he mean to log out and log back in before doing so?

Alright, this sub-thread is for a discussion of what administrative roles are needed for this project. Here are my suggestions:

1) Community Liason - the "official" figure who serves as Newsvine's public face, speaking for the community and working closely with the Assignment Zero folks. The traits this person will need are: ability to assess and understand the specific challenges of this inter-community collaboration, a diplomatic personality capable of working with all sorts of people, an intuitive understanding of the newsvine community (what we're capable of, how the different groups work, what kind of content newsvine generates, etc).

2) One or Two people to delegate responsibilities to various groups. This position(s) works with the community liason in unpacking the "box" of issues AssignmentZero is going to send newsvine, and then gets in touch with specific community members or group leaders who are best-suited to address the issues at hand. Necessary traits: organizational skills, people skills, a thorough knowledge of who does what in this community. You've got to hear a problem and have a name pop into your head of the person best equipped to address it. We're looking for people who spend a lot of time here.

3) Task leaders - people willing to accpt responsibility for specific tasks. Once we figure out exactly what kind of things newsvine is going to be expected to provide, and the specific challenges are broken down, we'll need a group of leaders to take charge of the various issues. Traits: strong understanding of a specific subject, ability to nag people to turn stuff in on deadline, willingness to pick up any slack generated by people not coming through with their projects.

4) Editor: Typical, run of the mill grammar-checker-and-phrase-polisher. All output from newsvine will pass through the capable hands of this editor on its way out the door. He or she is responsible for making sure that subjects and verbs agree, that there are no embarassing typos, etc. Trait: where are you grammar nazis?

5) Fact-Checker: This is crucial and may in fact be the theoretical lynchpin of the entire process. We need someone willing to track down every claim, confirm every source - it's very important that no unsubstantiated claims leave newsvine. The only difference between a citizen journalist and a blogger is credibility - I believe we need a fact-checker to establish that. We can flesh out the details of this position in greater depth later. Traits: must have good research skills, must understand the sorts of things that can be challenged so as to undermine the challenge by providing citations. We're looking for someone who really knows how to argue and who really hates to be wrong.

What do you think? this is all very off-the-top-of-my-head and I have a vague fear it's turning into a high school student council election type thing but we need these sorts of positions, I think. We have to create credibility. Add/remove/argue/beat me to death as you see fit.

Former English teacher volunteers for editor role. Some of you may have noticed that I'm also pretty good at digging up data and references, so some fact-checking duties might suit me, too. I'm also guessing that these roles are in addition to any of the reporting and writing roles. Is that correct?

Whatever you do, DO NOT accept me as a volunteer for anything requiring organization no matter how desperate you may ever become. Remember: I've warned you! :)

    Hey, Bazards and Adam: a group I've been working with has been looking at Drupal and at Joomla/Mambo. Most of the web development work I do and have done has always been custom, so I'm a little limited when it comes to adding anything of value. I've seen much prettier sites in Joomla than in Drupal, but I'm not sure if the difference is that most Drupal sites seem to be more tech oriented. Any experience with the two, and any comparative advice? (You can send me an email if you have time and if you think no one else is interested or if we'll be taking this too far off topic. Thanks!)

    For a science site I write on, we looked at Wordpress MU, Drupal and Joomla during product planning and made sites with all three before choosing Drupal. Drupal uses MYSQL efficiently and if you ( or someone ) knows PHP and has some creativity with CSS it can look pretty good.

    The best feature Drupal has is that you can have anonymous users look at cached content, which speeds up the database considerably.

    This new Wired thing is Drupal also. So is NowPublic.

    Wow.
    This is very exciting.
    You know my first thought about reading this

    Newsvine is calling its contributors to join together in the first pro-am journalism project on the web. We're teaming up with

    was, "What about Jay Rosen's project?"
    I've been reading, promoting, linking to, etc. Jay Rosen's pieces for years, since he
    and I crossed paths in Salon and other communities, and so I knew he
    was doing a project.

    What are the odds that I, a reporter-turned-media-critic who often cites
    Rosen as a source, come to Newsvine a month ago because of the Wall
    Street Journal piece, only to have Rosen and his project announced a month
    later?
    BTW, is Rosen a member here now?

    As you can probably tell I'm very excited about this.
    I'll help in any way I can - editing others' copy, giving advice to prospective
    reporters, etc.
    I probably won't have the time for straight news reporting but I can write and
    post interviews, as I do with the authors I interview,
    or write opinion pieces.

    Just tell me where I'm needed. I'm a member of both Citizen's Journalim and
    Citizens Journalist but I'd be hard-pressed to tell you the difference.

    * 1. We're going to take one big, moving story--the spread of crowdsourcing and peer production methods across wired society--and with your active assistance break it down into reportable parts. Some of these parts we already have. More of them is what we need.

    Am I reading this right, that this will be the first topic we write about? Or that it's the only
    topic, albeit a huge one?

    The topic reminds me of Smart Mobs, both the excellent book by Howard Rheingold, another
    mutual friend of Jay Rosen and I, and his blog on the topic. I know many who write for
    that blog so if those contacts would help just let me know.

    I look forward to reading the results! No doubt Newsvine will pull off a fantastic product with all the great talent engaging in this. Maybe then I might come to understand what crowdsourcing and peer production means...

    Oh well, do us proud!

    Just found this after a busy week- sounds great! It will be exciting to see where it takes us all :) To a good place, I think!
