Today, Knight is launching a new community site called Knight Pulse, a place to discuss the future of information.
Despite the current explosion of information, we are less informed. And in a world defined by information exchange, we need new ways to give, share, find, and receive information in our communities.
The goal of the Pulse site is to start conversations with a video post and listen as you debate ideas in the comments (and in other places, linking back). The site gives you a chance to develop collaborative projects about information that Knight Foundation may consider funding.
On the site, you'll find information projects that the Knight Foundation is funding, events that foundation staff and Pulse users are attending, opportunities to volunteer, and blog posts about information needs from feeds across the Web.
And you'll find profiles of people like you, who are also interested in improving information delivery--from details about local restaurant inspections (Everyblock) to discovering perspectives from bloggers around the world (Rising Voices).
Join the conversation and let us know what you think of the site--we're using Get Satisfaction and UserVoice for feedback, both on the Pulse 'Widgets' page, or leave a comment below--
The site is built in Drupal, and we are very pleased with the team at Development Seed and their great work on this project.
