About this project

Tiny News is a Mobile 2.0 platform, which crowdsources citizen journalism.  It combines a web app and an iPhone app, to allow anyone to publish news stories with photos or video, and have those stories curated by our readers.

You can take a photo or a video in the street, enter 140 character length structured stories on who, what, when, where, how, and why...or you can take a photo or video and enter a 1500 character Op/Ed piece.

Categories of news include the serious and not-so-serious:  Jobs and the Economy; Cats, Dogs, and Local heroes; The Green Earth; Politics and Insurrection; Theater, Fashion and Arts; and Cops and Robbers.

Each week, the best news story will get "Front Page" coverage on our website, to recognize great work.  Further, Tiny News will allow you to easily publish your stories to Facebook, or email your News Story in a journalistic format to friends and family.

We will have a classifieds section similar to Craigslist, but updated for contemporary users and needs.

Last, the news stories and Op/Ed pieces are curated by our readers, in a way similar to Digg and Reddit.
