WikiWash Launch

October 9, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Center for Investigative Reporting, Google, The Working Group and Metro News are joining forces again! This time, we’re coming together to launch WikiWash, a free public tool that allows users to track and examine edits to Wikipedia in real time.

The goal of the project is to make political and corporate spin on Wikipedia more visible and discoverable and at the same time promote accountability and transparency through crowdsourcing.

Born out of the TechRaking Toronto event in March, Metro News and The Working Group have been hard at work developing this winning idea. We’ll be toasting with drinks and appetizers as the WikiWash team gives us a tour of this important new tool.

This event is free, but your RSVP is required

If you have any questions, please reach out to Kristin Belden at kbelden@cironline.org.
