Current, the P2P news and information network, has launched Current.com, a site harnessing the interactivity of web 2.0 to Current's existing TV concept. The site offers an array of new features for consumers to interact with the channel or with other members of the Current community. Heralding the first real two-screen experience where TV and online viewing are mutually enriched in real time, viewers are encouraged to comment on the channel's content live via the web.
The site offers simplified collaboration features that extend Current's open source TV format, allowing viewers to participate in media through citizen journalism. Within the assignments feature, Current producers can post live briefs for other community members to collaborate in the production of pods, effectively developing a multi-disciplinary online pool of creative talent.
