New information era - new approach to news

Some cool info is coming to us via BuzzMachine on how BBC is changing its approach to news biz. Giving more control to users characterized media evolution since the development of printing press, and BBC is going to do even more of that now. But, it's not really new. And plans for an increased synergy aren't anything new either...

What is new, however, are the following: revamping searchability of website's content, increasing interactivity between readers and newspeople, opening up the website to user-generated content, and a few other thoughtful things. The post is somewhat long, but worth reading! (See my related post on transformation of media here)

Also, see this update from BuzzMachine on what the "proper role for the BBC as a tax-supported public trust" should be.
