Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Journalist Melinda Wittstock, harnessing both crowdsourcing and gamification, hopes to create a flourishing source of citizen journalism with her new reporting platform NewsiT . Participants in Wittstock’s mobile, crowd-reporting experiment accept distinct tasks in order to contribute to evolving news items. They can opt to interview a source, capture an image, or check a fact in order to add their weight to an ongoing assignment . Intrepid news-breakers can also upload images and videos in order to initiate stories of their own. Users who contribute to and/or rate NewsiT content are rewarded with points that enhance their on-site editorial status and expand their access.
