Original Reporting:

  1. How to deal with credibility issue - accreditation, anonymous witness reports
  2. How to protect sources
  3. When can original reports be called into question, how to avoid "POV" as a general purpose accusation
  4. What types of reporting there can be: from pre-announced cultural events to on-the-spot coverage of accidents and disasters
  5. How to integrate existing original reporting projects: Indymedia, OhMyNews, Dan Gillmor's project (should all be invited to participate)
  6. Simplifying contribution - do we need an easier submission screen?


It looked awkward to have a link to the dynamic invite list on the page describing the chat. Putting it here:
