Mirko is suggesting we have a segment of headlines somewhere on the
newsroom. See below email.

I did some thinking...well that sounds to great a message ;) I had an
idea, how about creating a "tool" that allows people to upload one
headline at a time, so the same way the wikinews usually work. Okay
that's not quite clear yet...
Let's say someone writes a Headline in the Newsroom (if that is actually
the place) and he could also record just this one headline and store it
somewhere either in the newsroom or somewhere else. The radio would then
pick the last 5 or 6 headlines recorded and build adhoc news. We would
have to come up with a mechanism of keeping more important stuff longer
in the loop of course, but I figured it would bring down the threshold
for someone to record a part of the news, as it is 20 seconds rather
than several minutes one has to record...
What do you think?
PS: I haven't thought about the technical side yet, but I am sure we can
find a way to do all this ;)
PPS: As I am preparing for a semi-official announcement of JustFM I
wanted to ask if we should include wikinews as part of the radio and
explain a bit how the newsroom works or sth. Say that the news lie with
the wikimedia and that we would be more than happy about anyone who
wants to get involved, please click here to get to the wikinews site ...
Well I would work on the text a bit, but as a general idea ;)
