Building networks on your beat

Jay Rosen is looking for guinea pigs. Here's a recent note and invitation:

I am currently recruiting good test sites for my next initiative, beat reporting with a social network. It's going well so far, and I believe I will have participation from [several] newspapers in [other companies.]

Participating newsrooms designate a single beat reporter to try to build a social network specifically for that beat. I aim to have 12-15 doing it at once, with help from NewAssignment.Net. That way they learn way more.

Interested? You can contact Jay through the links found here.
