People claim social news submitting sites are unfair. The news we all see every day is too important to leave in the hands of anyone but us. It’s not a truly democratic news submission website if we don’t own it.
I’d like to create a web app that’s a community/user owned Digg/Reddit. So not only are stories selected democraticallly but the whole site is run democratically. In fact even the profits would be split up between owners (users).
We’d need to develop a voting system to make decisions and such, (and of course a business model for “us”). but it would be 100% fair and decided by the owners (users).
If anyone is interested in working with me on this, just drop me an email or post a comment below.
Remember there is only freedom of the press for those who own a press (That would be our motto, but of course we’d all vote on that)
