Here’s an excerpt:
Leonard Witt: Tell me a little about the Knight Community Information Challenge, why is Knight involved and for what end?
Mike Maidenberg: Knight Foundation is deeply interested in how information flows in physical communities. We know the power of the web in specialized fields. What we are trying to understand and experiment with is how the web can be used to tie local communities together, with the newspaper a model from the past.
What other questions do you have for Mike about the Community Information Challenge?
