NowPublic wass a crowdsourcing news network empowering the ordinary citizen.
In 2009 the site was nominated for an Emmy. As a participatory news network, NowPublic lets citizens from all over the world write and contribute to news stories by sending in text, photos and/or videos. The site employs the notion of "crowdsourcing," as it is essentially a Wikipedia-like news service.
After just two year of its start in a garage, NowPublic grew to include over 170,000 contributors in 140 countries worldwide. Major news corporations including CNN, BBC, MSNBC, and Gannet have all begun to include citizen-collected news content, and most recently the Associated Press partnered with NowPublic.com to incorporate their citizen content in stories and breaking news events.
