Less than 48 hours after the announcement that Stroome won the 2010 Knight News Challenge, #Sin Lugar has issued what appears to be Stroome’s first collaborative challenge.
In the past, # Sin Lugar (roughly translated “without borders”), a group of activist authors based in and around Mexico, has used Twitter and Slideshare to enable their community to collectively participate in “the presentation and discussion of important issues without geographic location as an obstacle.”
Now, it seems, they are using Stroome:
“# SinLugar already has a profile and a group [on] Stroome. If you wish to join the group to help, check us out on Stroome. It’s easy to register, it takes no more than a couple of minutes and the platform is fairly intuitive.”
The collaboration revolves around remixing a # Sin Lugar trailer created to promote an upcoming June 28 call that will focus on issues evolving out of the current dire political situation in Mexico.
Here’s what’s up on Stroome:
If you want to participate in the remix:
