We spent some time this week with Grogger — a Colorado-based startup.
Toby Murdoch walked us through the platform that is — at first pass — equal parts content curation, crowdsourcing and audience engagement.
The CMS allows users to provide content, editors (and approved community users who have enough positive feedback) to moderate. Contributors, as well as content, can be ranked by the audience.
The tiered community moderation is similar to Journal Register’s recent discussion on story commenting.
Grogger is still in development but the concept of attracting audience and content is interesting.
Ideas of how to pull it all out off for free?
