You know Wikipedia, right? Who doesn’t. It’s now the top result for most searches, so much do we now rely on it for information. Well Larry Sanger its co-founder is up to some new revolution called Infobitt.
It’s not yet public but some people have been invited to beta-test it. I received the invite on October 11 and here’s relevant info from the email Larry sent.
“No one has crowdsourced front page news before–because people expect the news to be high-quality, and nobody has figured out how to crowdsource consistently high-quality content. Infobitt aims to be the first. We will engage, when launched, a huge number of people both to create and read a front page news site.”
I think it’s worth a look-out.
