To empower people to share breaking news by creating a searchable map of events streamed around the world.
Summary: Livestreaming breaking news has proven its potential - but hasn’t yet reached it. Peepol.tv aims to change that by creating a streamlined platform for posting, finding and watching livestreams from around the world. The Peepol.tv team will build a searchable map, aggregate streams from other sources, create topic curation and add features like music and social media interaction. The idea grew from a mini-media innovation challenge at last year’s MIT-Knight Civic Media Conference.
