WikiNews sounds great, what an amazing idea and what a community going to set it up.

Just one question… what’s the difference between this and, say, the blogosphere where you have people writing news on a daily basis, it getting aggregated, sifted, commented on… Is it a matter of mainstream accessibility? I think that the Wikipedia idea i an amazing one because encyclopaedias work well as wikis… but news is a whole different kettle of fish isn’t it, a conversation of sorts… which is one of the things wikis aren’t good at.

I could be totally wrong (I haven’t read the proposal in much detail) & would be interested to be proved so but am not sure of this one’s future.
