About NewAssignment.Net | NewAssignment.Net

NewAssignment.Net is a research project based at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and directed by professor Jay Rosen, who is on the faculty there and writes the popular press criticism blog, PressThink.

Its mission is to spark innovation in “open platform” journalism, distributed reporting and what’s now called crowdsourcing. These are forms made possible by the Web and by the falling costs for large numbers of people to locate each other, share information, and collaborate across distance.
