Newsvine - a wikipedia version of the news

Here's a story from the Seattle Post about a new company called Newsvine - it's going to be an online news site that will let readers write and edit the news - it's a media development project under Walt Disney.

Newsvine is actually a company that allows users to comment and chat on news articles, write their own articles and add articles to the site that they find elsewhere on the web. Newsvine users will not be able to edit each other's articles, nor the articles from the A.P. There is no implementation of wiki-based technology used in either the development or use of Newsvine.com. Newsvine is a privately held company and has no affiliation with The Walt Disney Co., other than the fact that several employees were former employees of Disney Internet Group and ESPN.
