If NowPublic Doesn't Get You Excited, Nothing Will!

I can't say it any better than the folks behind NowPublic. Here's what they are up to:

"Technology has broken the corporate news monopoly. Digital cameras, camera phones, blogs, and RSS put the tools of the news trade into the hands of the public, and now real news comes from real people everywhere. Now you can demand coverage of the stories you care about—all you need is nowPublic.
"Here public demand launches investigations. Assignments come from people on the ground, insiders, community leaders. Footage comes from eye witnesses, citizen reporters, people close to the real story. It’s open source news, and even in its infancy it’s richer, faster, more powerful than the infotainment it replaces."

Folks, we are only at the outset of an Internet-inspired revolution in news gathering and delivery. There is so much more to come.
