IamA Jimmy Wales from Wikipedia and as of this week I am the founder of WikiTribune AMA!
My short bio: Hi I'm Jimmy Wales, and this week I launched a crowdfunding campaign at http://www.wikitribune.com/ to presell monthly support for it. Wikitribune is a new news platform which brings together professional journalists and community members working side by side.
I think its strengths will be in having a good community of thoughtful people to help make sure everything is evidenced-based and accurate to that evidence, and I also think there's an interesting opportunity in the business model... I estimate that for every 500 monthly supporters at $15/month I can hire 1 journalists - so if, for example, a popular subreddit wants a full-time journalist to cover their beat... this is a mechanism for that.
Wikitribune is a completely new thing from me personally, independent of both Wikipedia/Wikimedia and Wikia.
UPDATE: All done, this was great, be sure to go to www.wikitribune.com and bookmark it to be ready for the launch!
