matter tries collaborative commissioning

Matter is a new outlet for long-form, high-quality science journalism.  Like most scientists, I’m pretty disappointed with passes for science journalism on the web these days so I really hope that Matter succeeds.

Co-founders Jim Giles and Bobbie Johnson have recently raised start-up funds with a KickStarter campaign, and Matter should be publishing content pretty soon.  But what stories should they cover?  In order to answer that question, Matter recently finished a test of “collaborative commissioning" using allourideas.  Their first test was a success and you can read more about the results on the Matter blog.
