This week I made a nefarious news editor using socket IO. I was thinking about fake news and its generation. I made a quick prototype that allows for live editing of news articles. Using Shawn’s base as a starting point for the prototype, I copied the leading article on New York Times to the the watcher and the the viewer pages. The watcher page has a text form that allows text to be edited on the viewer page.
Moving forward I would like to style the viewer page to be a clone of the New York Times article for a deeper immersion. I would also like to allow the watcher to fully edit the viewer page. As it is now it only allows a one way stream of input and so I can’t erase or modify previous content.
