The future of journalism? - The Boston Globe redesigned their site and if you look down the right column, there are "Reporters' questions" where they're inviting readers to fill out stories for them. For example: "Do you commute more than two hours each way on a daily basis? If so, tell the Globe about your drive." Interesting.

As much as I despise the glob, it seems like a reasonable use of the internet--and a good way to profit from that urge that makes blogging such a hit. I mean, if people like to talk so much that hundreds of thousands of private citizens are willing to blog about their private lives, why not get them to talk to a reporter and then profit off the exchange?
