News sites that ‘get’ participation part II

In response to my last blog post on sites showcasing great participation techniques I received a lot of suggestions on Twitter. I thought I would continue the list here – with those that were suggested.

Blottr – aggregator and site based on community contribtuions

What’s trending – a similar idea to The Stream on Al Jazeera, this is a program on CBS sourced from online conversations

Open Wire – a section of The Atantic dedicated to user contributions

OhmyNews – the ultimate ‘pro-am’ model. A team of professional editors working with stories submitted from users around the world.

Truthout – a non-profit news site that claims to balance mainstream media by “broadening and diversifying political discussion”.

Any others?
