Fact checking at the edge

Tiny shack under the stars where people fact check information

Fact-control office with boom gate closed

Illustration and text by Frits Ahlefeldt

Drawn under debate about if fact checking is possible and how

Tough job defining and estimating what is correct along the information highway, where many competing perspectives, cultures and world views hurl past and collide in new ways on the web and social media

Is it possible at all to define truth today… or at least what is not, and can we do it together as citizen science?
