Jay wants to create a site that will allow people to create stories about history. Leo says to check out Folklore.org for stories about the original development of the Macintosh. It's a great example of how to tell a story online.
Leo also thinks that a WIKI would be the best and easiest way to go about this, but it will be a huge challenge to moderate. Reddit also has a great subreddit of a community-based Coronavirus news portal - Reddit.com/r/coronavirus
Creating a subreddit may be the best bet.
