What if requesting an event report was as easy as ordering an Uber ride?
In a previous blog post we described the process of leveraging collaborative writing tools and TaskRabbit, for local news production. We then began to wonder what an automated, streamlined platform for journalism-as-a-service would look like. Would there be a way to connect on-demand labor, with those who need a report of an event?
We built a system that would support exactly this process. Eventful makes it possible for anyone to access the service of event reporting. The reporting process is executed behind the scenes through a crowd of people working online or at the event to produce a news report
Eventful makes requesting a report a one-step process: identify the event type, location, date, and duration. A few hours later and under $150 dollars, a multimedia event report is ready.
