Online Journalism Review’s Robert Niles has a great interview with technologist/journalist (and all-around smart guy) Adrian Holovaty of Washingtonpost.com. Good reading.
A favorite exchange from the Niles-Holovaty interview:
OJR: “Journalism’s always been a competitive business. But what technical initiatives should news organizations be cooperating on? What opportunities, if any, is the industry missing when companies don’t work together?”
Holovaty: “I think news organizations should cooperate on removing mandatory Web-site registration walls, which are severely reader-unfriendly. It’s embarrassing to be associated with an industry that treats its customers with such disdain.”
Exactly right, Adrian!
