Agree with the below, with 2 reservations:


I’m not sure about the “reddit-like” platform idea. Maybe something
more agile, chat-centric, plus a shared pad to actually write it up

curation platform?)


Second, whatever platform we use I’d go for regional subdivision over

The main problems would be news aggregation from many different sources
and verifying their validity, maybe some Reddit-like platform would be
great, everyone (of a small group of trusted people at the beginning)
could post info, then indict some sort of voting if needed, etc etc.


	4. What format should be? A more regular long form? Or short and


I think it really depends on the situation, so it would be good to have
both of them.


	frequent "alerts"?


Reddit-like platform ( see 2 and 3 ) -> per country reddit (just an
example) -> subscribe -> alerts ... if we're gonna have per-country
groups that would be a very good way of load balancing efforts for
