HASTAC ("haystack") is a network of individuals and institutions inspired by the possibilities that new technologies offer us for shaping how we learn, teach, communicate, create, and organize our local and global communities. We are motivated by the conviction that the digital era provides rich opportunities for informal and formal learning and for collaborative, networked research that extends across traditional disciplines, across the boundaries of academe and community, across the "two cultures" of humanism and technology, across the divide of thinking versus making, and across social strata and national borders.

The Knight News Challenge
The News Challenge is part of Knight Foundation’s $100 million plus Media Innovation Initiative, which seeks new ways to meet community information needs in the digital age. Over its first five years, Knight Foundation reviewed more than 12,000 applications and funded 76 projects for $27 million.
