Seattle based Newsvine was launched in March 2006 by veterans of Disney, ESPN, and other media organizations. Their idea was "to build a perfectly different, perfectly efficient way to read, write, and interact with the news." The solution they came up with is Newsvine, a community driven news site with stories from the Associated Press, ESPN and New Scientist as well as individual contributors from all around the world. Newsvine was [acquired](http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/10/07/breaking-newsvine-acquired-by-msnbccom/) by first time buyer MSNBC in October, 2007. Other community driven news sites include [Digg](http://www.digg.com), [Netscape](http://www.netscape.com) and [Reddit](http://www.Reddit.com).
