— History is not a rock in a stream, but is the stream itself.
One of our core beliefs at CrowdNews is that a news story can’t be time-boxed. It can’t be 24-hour-news-cycled. It can’t be deadlined. We believe that journalists, to explore and accurately report on our world, must be given the opportunity to tell a story in its fullest.
Our Newstream gives journalists the freedom to define the life of a story. A Newstream is the information and content that comprise a story, presented over time. This gives life to a story.
We call each component of a story a Dispatch. A Dispatch can be a text article, a video clip, a map, an audio file, or other media.
A complete Newstream might be one dispatch, or 30. It might all be presented in one day, or over the course of a year. It might take the form of text, or video, or audio, or a combination. (CrowdNews is media agnostic.) Each journalist will decide what completes a particular Newstream.
Our audience can subscribe to that Newstream at any point and have access to all the content that is part of that stream.
