Sanjay Sood, chief architect of AllVoices.com presented today at a Georgia Tech conference in Atlanta. AllVoices allow people to build "events" around a news story. Sood calls it "building scaffolding for enabling citizen journalism." The site features the ability to discover events, and create them. Once you've created an event, the system will create context around it, including related news, blogs, images and videos. "This really gives people an incentive to create news." Founded in April of 2007, allvoices was started by passionate people who believe that in order to solve the world's problems, we need to appreciate different perspectives in order to have serious discussions about current events and breaking news. They want to encourage people to communiate with one other, to comment on, question and rate content, rank user generated content and the like. The call this "unedited, real-community news."
