For sometime now I have been working with the fine folks at NowPublic. NowPublic is working on some tools to help citizen journalists publish their stories, footage and collaborate with other users to enrich news.
If anyone is interested in testing a private beta of a firefox extension, please leave a comment with your email id here, or shoot me a mail at nehavish[at]gmail[dot]com. I am looking for about 20 people to test the tool. The tool makes bookmarking, clipping, quoting, linking, tagging and reblogging a breeze. (Or we hope it does that!)
Feedback from the private beta users would greatly enrich and enhance the tool, and push it towards the public beta usage stage.
Note – I just got a few mails asking for more details on the kind of profiles I am looking for. Well, you definitely don’t have to be a techie or a geek. But if you tend to read a lot online and like blog and news hopping, you might enjoy doing the test drive.
