Announcing n0tice.org – the open journalism toolkitPosted: May 22, 2012
Today is an important day in the n0tice journey. We are opening up the platform for publishers, brands, communities and developers.
Visit n0tice.org, the open journalism toolkit:
It was always our intention to operate n0tice as a service, more like a utility than a destination. And this is the next piece of critical infrastructure needed to achieve that vision.
At n0tice.org you will find a new web site that explains how the platform can fuel open journalism projects.
The tools on offer enable a range of different capabilities for any type of media partner — from large publishing organisations to brands running engagement campaigns to local and special interest communities to media platform developers who need open APIs to build things. These are the same tools we use for n0tice.com and the soon-to-be-released iPhone app.
Among other things partners can now run their own crowdmapping projects, such as a short-term investigation requiring eyewitness accounts, a brand campaign looking to activate people on a journey, a community committed to surfacing important information openly, or a location-based app or integration with another geo platform. We’ve now done several crowdmapping projects at the Guardian since the n0tice.com web site launched several week ago.
Documentation, features and case studies are all available on n0tice.org.
With n0tice.com for users and n0tice.org for partners now both publicly available the n0tice service is only missing one thing — a native mobile app. But that will change very soon. Stay tuned for that announcement.
Meantime, spend a moment with n0tice.org and consider how it might help your business today.
