Project: Tech is dedicated to providing and discussing quality coverage of technology and related subjects on WikiTribune. For related Projects go to ‘See Also’ below. Guidelines, tips, and ideas are all mutable so please edit and improve. You can pitch ideas on the TALK page, or for more topical issues, on the Daily News Agenda.

Rough guidelines and tips:

  1. Avoid ‘the next big thing’ reporting – every tech company thinks their invention is sliced bread.
  2. If reporting on the impact of a subject, consider this from multiple perspectives and clearly differentiate fact from conjecture.
  3. Examine the source carefully. Reports or information given out at press junkets or conferences may significantly vary from the reality of the situation
  4. Simplify concepts without leaving out important detail – the reader may not understand coding or hardware but can grasp the underlying story

Before creating your story, remember to check out our how-to guide, style guidelines, and a list of sources most trusted by the WikiTribune staff.

Talk for Project "Technology"

Talk about this Project

  1. If anyone is interested in collaborating on the “implications of net neutrality repeal” piece, I think it comes down to two questions: How might the repeal in the U.S. affect internet access to U.S.-based internet services elsewhere?
    Is there a chance that other governments will come under pressure to adopt the same regulatory framework as the U.S.?
    The impression I get is that most people see the US stance more as a symbolic step, rather than something that has firm implications for internet access outside the U.S. – though I may be wrong!

    1. Update on this:
      Joe McNamee, exec director of European Digital Rights, responded to my Qs:
      – How might the repeal in the U.S. affect internet access to U.S.-based internet services elsewhere?

      “Outside the US, the impact should not be that great. Ironically, the US has done a great job, over decades, promoting telecoms liberalisation and the setting up of independent national regulators to enforce the laws underpinning that liberalisation. Unfortunately, the US was not so successful at home, which led to the problems this week.”

      – Is there a chance that other governments will come under pressure to adopt the same regulatory framework as the U.S.?

      “The weaker the legislative framework in any given country, the more opportunity there will be for big telecoms providers to exploit the mistakes in the US to call for weakening of the laws. However, as the full ramifications of the destruction of the online ecosystem in the US becomes clear or, (hopefully and preferably) the US takes steps to rectify its mistake, that risk should subside.

      It should be remembered that abandoning net neutrality benefits literally nobody except very big service providers. The biggest pressure for net neutrality would naturally be in a very big market that is uncompetitive. It is not a coincidence therefore that the US was the first country to go down this route – as it has a big, uncompetitive market.”

      This does seem to give me the impression that there isn’t much of a story here, though I am open to discussion, and will keep researching. It may be that there are implications in other countries that would not occur to someone in the UK or US.

  2. Hi Fiona and team,

    There are a couple of broken (404) links in the workshop stories and the draft stories .

    1. We’ve had a few of these. I am going through and fixing!
