The purpose of Actual News is to reinvent the way we experience and interact with current events. Our platform is designed to present actual news from places and locations you choose to explore.
The home screen is a map of the world showing stories which affect everyone. Zooming to investigate continents, countries and cities will reveal national and local events picked out in clean, modern graphics.

Tying our interface together is Actual News' soon-to-be iconic NewsWheel. This innovation organises the world's events and lets you spin swiftly through reports; while beautiful graphics map connections between world happenings.

We're basing the service on the idea that you might want to explore the world's news; not be told what stories are important. When you don't want a bird's-eye view of events, powerful and simple search tools get you round the planet quickly.

Gathering and publishing stories written by journalistic partners across the globe helps make a news service done differently. The editorial team don't decide what our partners write stories about - anyone can publish an article and dispute it, so we can't (& won't) control content.

Be a journalist: make an argument, support a cause, tell the world about an event, comment on your society... Article templates will guide you through adding media, locations and links. Our software does the rest.

Your article will be linked to others on the map which back it up or expand on its argument - and you get paid for writing it! We don't think paywalls work; so we're asking readers to contribute to writers whose work they enjoy to build up a worldwide online community - an informative commons. This keeps us ad-free, so our journalism isn't biased by corporate complications or the content muddied by distracting boxes. 

This Podcast is a new arrow in our quiver: an effort primarily to have interesting and informative conversations, also to spread the word about what we're trying to do at Actual News - and to raise funds to support the platform's development. We thank you kindly for your time, interest and support - and warmly welcome feedback.

We'd like to experiment with this tier of support; since you're clearly interested, we'd like you to beta-test the site and have a one-to-one discussion with our CEO about your thoughts on the concept, implementation and any ideas you have for improvements - this is a public resource, after all.
