On (a collection of) point(s)

Wired News is reporting about the recent unveiling of Wikinews. I mentioned Wikinews back in October when it was still a glint in the Wikipedia creators' eyes. And just last week, I pointed out Wired's editorial about the downfall of newspapers. USAToday has a related editorial reporting that newspapers are popular in Japan (aren't they supposedly cyber-savvy?!?). The Independent questions when and if online news will stop being free.

I love Google News because I feel that it can normalize editorial bias in single news organizations. Wikinews--although still a nascent effort--may do that one better.
