The World Wide Web Foundation is one project in Knight’s Media Innovation Initiative. Over three years, Knight has helped communities meet their information needs by investing more than $100 million in this multi-faceted initiative. The seven projects address media innovation on various levels, including national media policy, journalism education and the evolution of the World Wide Web. Projects such as the Knight News Challenge, and others, have to date spawned more than 100 media experiments.
Our strategy is experimental. Right now, nobody knows all the answers. But the more experiments we seed, the more approaches we explore, the more likely we are to find innovations that will serve communities and strengthen journalism in the digital age.
