    On June 1, Paul Bradshaw of the Online Journalism Blog and Birmingham City University in the U.K. announced that a project he’s been working on for 18 months called Help Me Investigate won funding to build a platform for crowdsourcing investigative journalism. I spoke with Paul via Skype about the goals of the project, the nature of the funding, and what he calls “slow journalism.”

    You can find Paul on Twitter or follow the project’s progress at the Help Me Investigate blog if you have questions for him, or leave a comment here.
