Assignment Zero is a test to see if crowdsourced journalism will work. Crowdsourcing, basically, is where a group of people perform a task that ordinarily only one person would pursue. So, in a sense, Wikipedia is a form of crowdsourced encyclopedia.
Getting to my point. We need someone to interview a designer working with the Open Architecture Network–which is a crowdsourcing design and architecture website. The project our group chose is the ShoeBox Homes project in South Africa.
So, if you’re interested in getting your name published, possibly on Wired.com, please consider helping out. Assignment Zero already got one article published called “Assignment Zero First Take: Wiki Innovators Rethink Openness.”
