Earth to Wired – The Proof is in Vancouver

wired assignment zero

Wired online today launched something called Assignment Zero, in conjunction with NewAssignment.net.

…we’re trying to figure something out here. Can large groups of widely scattered people, working together voluntarily on the net, report on something happening in their world right now, and by dividing the work wisely tell the story more completely, while hitting high standards in truth, accuracy and free expression?

Excuse me…haven’t you heard about the success of Now Public or about Orato ?

now public

Orato

They’re two Vancouver sites that have/are/continue to prove what you’re ‘trying to figure out’.
Oh, and isn’t it just a bit weird that Wired’s online story about Assignment Zero doesn’t even link out to their partner NewAssignment.net (though they do to Assignment Zero)?
