Where Anyone Can Be a Reporter, Writer, Researcher or Editor

Wired is diving into citizen journalism and crowdsourcing once again. A new project called Assignment Zero offers:

“…any willing contributor the chance to do the work of a reporter, writer, researcher or editor in a joint investigation by Wired and NewAssignment.Net. When Assignment Zero ends, NewAssignment.Net will publish the results — articles, interviews and assorted data. Wired magazine contributing editor Jeff Howe will write a feature-length article that will run on Wired News.”

The goal:

“Our hope is that a team of professionals, working with scores of citizen journalists, is capable of completing an investigative project of far greater scope than a team of two or three professionals ever could.”
