Stroome Scores $200K From Journalism Contest

Los Angeles-based Stroome, which is developing an online community for collaborative video editing, announced today that it has just won $200,000 from the 2010 Knight News Challenge. The Knight News Challenge is a contest which helps to fund digital news experiments and technology. Stroome said the site provides a place where journalists, filmmakers, musicians, students, sports enthusiasts, travelers, activists, and bloggers can upload, edit, and remix video through their web browser. Stroome was founded by Nonny de La Pena and Tom Grasty, both of whom are graduate students at USC's Annenberg School of Journalism.
