The Next Big Thing in Digital News Innovation
Zeega is an open-source HTML5 platform for creating interactive documentaries and inventing new forms of storytelling. The project is funded, in part, by the Knight News Challenge. Zeega will make it easy to collaboratively produce, curate and publish participatory multimedia projects on web, tablet and mobile devices. Zeega will enable anyone to create participatory projects that combine original content with photos, videos, text, audio and maps via APIs from across the web. Our mission is not only to give voice to individuals, but to create a platform that empowers individuals to give voice to others.
