BACK TO PIVOT POINT HOME PAGE
- A method for the public to engage with the reporting process in real time from the moment a story idea is conceived. Reporter's Notebook is Yammer for newsrooms. Reporters create a public page showing each step in the editorial production process, with text, photos, video, documents, links, and transcribed audio. Editors can access the newsroom's live workflow, and comment on the process during the day. The public follows along, commenting on specific content pieces. The resulting goal is total transparency. Champion: Luke Stangel
2. Local Wiki
- A dynamic encyclopedia of local knowledge focused on community issues, concerns, events and needs. If paired with another PivotPoint proposal, the open reporter's notebook, the wiki might be thought of as an open CMS. It would contain both the first draft and the final draft of news. It would have wiki pages on every issue, every news event, every person in the news, and every place, business, governmental entity and organization in the news. Champion: Martin Langeveld.
- A platform for a community to define civic needs, then measure and guide progress toward meeting them. Every community in America needs to know how it ranks with its residents and businesses. Reliable answers are critically important because they may not jibe with what the opinions of community officials. But there are no systems that deliver reliable answers. Local America will be a platform for communities to rank themselves across a broad Livability Index covering 20+ categories. Champion: Tom Grubisich.
- A prototype place-based service that convenes, supports and fosters collaboration in an emerging news and information ecosystem, using American Public Media's Public Insight Network. It serves as an incubator for new forms of partnerships that are particularly relevant for small-to-medium-sized media markets.Champion: Al Stavitsky.
- A system that auto-curates social media (Twitter, Google+, Facebook etc.) to provide topic advice from experts as judged by the crowd in order to spark insight and action. A collaboration with American Public Media's Public Insight Network, potentially in conjunction with the Nevada Media Alliance and the Nine Network Town Square initiative in St. Louis.Champion: Brad DeGraf.
- A replicable, asynchronous, demand-driven virtual "town hall." It will feature multiple entry points, a dynamic reference encyclopedia of key local issues, mapping assets, relationships, data and constituencies with a specific focus on schools and lifelong learning initiatives. Champion: Chuck Peters.
- Re-inventing delivery of news in mobile so that it meets the needs of digital natives, without regard to legacy platforms and methods, and does not require a personal device to access. Envisioning the 21st Century Newsbox as tablet kiosks in public places.Champion: Matt Galligan.
- An outline of the reasons why traditional media need a new collaboration of local markets working in tandem with a global shared-user network for trust, identity, privacy and information commerce. An "information newco" is proposed. Champion: Buzz Wurzer.
