Help Mozilla improve journalism

participation

(Andrewl) #1

Hi everyone,

I’m Andrew and I run a Mozilla initiative called The Coral Project. We’re collaborating with the New York Times and the Washington Post to improve how journalists connect with communities around news. And we need your help.

Our tools will improve trust around journalism, distinguish real news from fake, broaden the diversity of voices in journalism, improve online dialog, and make journalism more relevant to people’s lives.

We want you to join us in submitting code, contributions, ideas, testing. Right now, making journalism stronger and improving online dialog seem pretty urgent tasks.

Here’s some places to start:

• Check out our products: the form builder/gallery display tool Ask (GitHub link: https://github.com/coralproject/ask/ ; released 11/16), and our comment platform, Talk (GitHub link: https://github.com/coralproject/talk ; entering beta next month)
Read our Contribution guide
Check out our research around online communities, journalism, comments
• Message me here and/or talk to our team via our site

Journalism needs everyone. Including you. Let me know

Hi @andrew_coral,

The first look of the Coral project is amazing. I am looking forward to actively contribute to the project in code, ideas, and evangelism of the tool in my community.

Thank you @hmitsch for posting about this in the reps group.
