We want you! Come to Chile and become our lead developer
To promote greater transparency in Chile, Poderopedia will be an editorial and crowdsourced database that highlights the links among the country’s elite. Using data visualization, the site will investigate and illustrate the connections among people, companies and institutions, shedding light on any conflicts of interests. Crowdsourced information will be vetted by professional journalists before it is posted. Entries will include an editorial overview, a relationship map and links to the sources of information.
Poderopedia is one of the 16 winners of the 2011 Knight News Challenge of the Knight Foundation. It is a non profit project, entirely open source and it will start in Chile and deploy to other countries in medium-term.
