Citizen Journalists

There is a demo online for Wikinews, a collaborative free-content news source. They already have about 90 articles online and so far it looks fairly interesting such as the article about the girl who has been charged for murdering her own mother and who wrote about it on her livejournal account. Her last post is fairly chilling.

Just to let everyone know, my mother was murdered.

I won’t have computer acess (sic) until the weekend or so because the police took my computer to go through the hard drive. I thank everyone for their thoughts and e-mails, I hope to talk to you when I get my computer back.
