Yahoo and Reuters are launching YouWitness tomorrow and it should be interesting to see how it pans out. This looks like it will be a pretty high profile move into crowdsourcing with two substantial partners. I hope Yahoo and Reuters integrate this with their main news sections rather than simply creating yet another island of information within the peanut butter jar.
User generated content may start finding itself in new places as well as the NYT is a pretty large consumer of Reuters feeds and the critical mass at Yahoo might be just what the doctor ordered to pepper in new context to breaking stories.
