News by your Fellow Man

There’s a new kind of news online, and it is created by anyone who has something worthwhile to report.  Wikinews is a collaborative news services, created by the people who brought us the Wikipedia.  Wikinews has had some success with the story of an explosion in Belize.  It will be interesting to see how well it works for the long term.  Something to keep an eye on – and perhaps to contribute to if you have something newsworthy to broadcast.
