A network of newsrooms

Publish2, the embryonic web-based aggregation and ranking system for journalists now running in public beta, is launching an experimental "network of newsrooms" syndicate that aims at identifying and publishing links to the best regional coverage of Super Tuesday elections.

The concept takes a minute to wrap your head around, so you should visit the explanation at this address (where you will also find links to Publish2 itself).

There are smart folks behind the Publish2 project, and I've been talking with them about the project since it was simply a concept. Some of our editors have likewise been approached to participate in the beta.

This is a separate, one-off project. If it sounds like something your website might use, by all means contact Scott Karp or others at Publish2 for more details.
