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”.
