Guardian gets love for its approach to online publishing
Robin Hamman from CyberSoc gives a big up to The G for how it’s embraced interactivity, bringing 200 columnists and expert contributors (that’s me!) into the fold. I have to say, I agree. Of course I would.
According to Journalism.co.uk, the Guardian has now recruited over 200 columnists and expert contributors for their “comment is free” project. The Guardian’s Emily Bell recently told a conference of the Online Publishers Association that “One of the strongest resources of a journalistic brand is its commentators… The idea of giving commentators individual blogs was slightly worrying for all sorts of reasons, but this will be a collective voice for the kind of people we want to talk to.”
