Hey, Jay Rosen is making waves with Assignment Zero, a new way to pay for serious journalism:
We're covering a story: How the Web makes it possible for the crowd to be the source of good ideas. But instead of one journalist reporting, we've created a site where many people can work on the story, with editors as guides. You are now in the Newsroom, where you can find an overview and learn what others are doing. The Assignment Desk is where you can see what we're covering in detail, and get an assignment. The Exchange is a place to offer new ideas. Check the day's developments with The Scoop.
