Grassroots journalists have a new means to take their brand of news beyond the blog. It's called Wikinews. Launched by the folks that brought you Wikipedia, Wikinews, now in beta, will try to bring to current events its style of collaborative authoring that has showered acclaim to its online encyclopedia. Information created through Wikis, which are Web pages than can be modified by anyone with a browser, stand in stark contrast with blogs, those single-minded Web logs favored by many online journalists.

Note that Wikipedia is not a typical wiki in this respect. Most wiki communities encourage their users to sign their contributions or to make their authorship obvious in other ways.
