There's also a 9Neighbors blog with information about the project, including a link to a do-it-yourself pothole map.
The site raises some questions that I hope you'll think about for Rick's appearance:
- In what ways is 9Neighbors journalism?
- In what ways is it not journalism?
- Is there a role for professional journalists in a project like 9Neighbors?
- Should mainstream news organizations welcome links from 9Neighbors in order to drive traffic to their sites? Or might they look at 9Neighbors as a free rider?
