Knight: mass tech collaboration

Here is a version of my entry for the Knight News Challenge. This advanced to the second round. I am asking for $15,000 for planning and marketing.

 Describe your project

The mass tech collaboration would bring together and focus the efforts of a relatively large number of mainly technical people for a defined and relatively short period of time. They would develop one or more news or information projects that are either local or are intended to be made localized.

Findings: better digital display

Via Scientific American — Qualcomm is working on new displays with brighter color, even in the sun’s glare, and less energy use.

The technology is called “IMOD,” short for “interferometric modulator.” Part of how it works is by sandwiching reflective surfaces with a gap between them.

 I read about this in the paper version of the magazine. The article is not free.
