Wikitribune Sets Out to Practice Evidence-Based Journalism
by Kenneth D. Evans
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales (along with collaborators Lawrence Lessig, Guy Kawasaki, Jeff Jarvis, and Lily Cole) is attempting to attack the problem of fake news by starting his own journalism outfit.

by Brandi Scardilli

The LightSail literacy platform for grades K-12 aims to make all books entertaining and educational by capitalizing on the gamification of learning and making it easy for students to find their next curriculum-approved read.
