Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales describes WikiTribune as: "an entirely new kind of news service in which the trusted users of the site – the community members – are treated as equal to the staff of the site. As with any true wiki, you can jump in and get involved at the highest levels, doing as much or as little as you like to help. As with any successful wiki, there will be detailed discussions and debates by the community to set policy on all the matters necessary to build a news service." WikiTribune editor Peter Bale will talk us through the strategy and objectives of this brand new news service.
