What it does
Allows a de-centralised approach to news reporting so that people are treated equally. Uses Wisdom of the Crowd and a Reputation Model for reporters and editors to allow the community to decide who serves them best.
How we built it
TDD (or Blood, sweat, tears) and a WHOLE lot of caffeine
Challenges we ran into
mocha/chai testing with asynchronous chained api calls :-/
What we learned
Learning a TDD framework may not be for hackathons but bean bags definitely are!
What's next for Collective News Network
Learning algorithms to generate automatic textual content
