British blogger Brown Moses launches new site to train others in crowdsourced reporting — Tech News and Analysis

A little over two years ago, the blogger known as Brown Moses was an unemployed father of one, with no journalistic training and no expertise in military weaponry or the Arab world, living in his flat in Leicester, a small town in northern England. Since then, Moses — whose real name is Eliot Higgins — has become a key source of information about the conflict in Syria and elsewhere, information he gathered by spending thousands of hours combing through YouTube videos and social-media accounts. Now he is launching a Kickstarter campaign to jump-start a dedicated website to teach others how to do the same.
