Today I sent out a call for citizen journalists to be included in an upcoming site that will be an off-shoot of Rocketboom: www.humanwire.org.
The Human Wire will be a lot like the AP wire, for essentially rolling an updated link-set of news stories from around the world, only this news will be told by citizen journalists in video form.
This happened as a result of so many e-mails that we received from people wanting to be Rocketboom correspondents. Because Rocketboom is just 3min a day without a format, where anything goes, it seemed like a great idea to create another place where stories could be posted indiscriminately, filtered only for base journalistic standards.
The Human Wire will simply be an **updated** aggregate of links to citizen journalistic media.
We are looking at a two week launch date, starting off very, very small just to see what happens.
