I've been thinking about clarity lately. I just discovered Headspace.com, a guided mediation app. It's quite extraordinary. And of course, one of the goals of mindfulness is clarity.
Clarity certainly doesn't exist now in the news ecosystem. While the goal of good journalism is to inform, the competing goal of most legacy media is to sell advertising. And the conflict between bringing information to you, and bringing your eyeballs to advertisers, creates dynamics with very different goals.
Will CrowdNews bring more clarity to the news ecosystem? Maybe. Rather than screaming for your attention as advertisers must do, we'll connect you directly to the journalists you choose and support.
We won't have to scream, because you, the audience, will be in charge of your news. We'll be there to help you find the topics, Newstreams, and journalists that interest you. But we won't have to yell.
