New York City-based DocumentCloud helps  journalists be more transparent and engaging and simplifies investigative reporting.

DocumentCloud, founded in 2009 by editorial and news application developers from ProPublica and the New York Times, makes it easier for journalists to publish and analyze document source material, and it keeps those documents available for future research, reporting, and review.  

While their computerized competition include GoogleDocs and Scribd, two products that facilitate online collaboration and publishing of documents, and their biggest competitors are actually 50 year old products like highlighters, sticky notes, and dusty files in the back of the archives.

DocumentCloud is one of the featured startups at our SXSW Accelerator Kickoff on Sunday.  If you are a journalist, writer, or blogger, stop by to learn more.
