BBC pop-up news similar to Courtney Lowery Cowgills rural news network. I had a similar idea, and got an honorable mention from Knight for a Chicago pop-up news cafe. Guess I’ll dust the idea off… “The web is dying, television is long gone, so our job is to figure out where people are going. Internet use is like a billion times more than it was ten years ago. If that’s true, and no one is using the web, then where are they going? The New Yorks, Tokyos, and Mexico Cities of the Internet have been developed and they’re called Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter. We want to create content from within these digital communities in the same way that we create stories from physical locations.
