From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!
- The idea of taking a crummily written Indymedia story polishing it flies in the face of the notion that journalist have of ownership of story, Just editing crappy stories needs to work in the context of an existing framework. This means actually talking to 'establishment independent media.' Needs to be a process heirarchy in order to really work. Heirarchy means deference to standards of news.
- Trying out a digest template - this should be the main export for Wikinews, considering the limited resources. The goal for the digest template is to fine tune a page which will be RSS pumped out to sources. The focus of Wikinews should be on the single template, with secondary attention paid to the linked stories. As main backbone for all article development, use up to 100 words each, maybe. We can use some markup to note which stories are at what stage of dev. Consolidate.
