Business 2.0 found some inaccurate information in a story and corrected it in their online edition in a rather unique way, clearly admitting the error:
It was bound to happen. The idea is too obvious and the potential too great to resist exploitation for much longer.
A few weeks ago, Tony Perkins, creator of the digerati clubhouse AlwaysOn and now the publisher of its spinoff magazine, outlined for me the suggestion he says he recently made to New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger.
Suppose the Times, he told Sulzberger, rounded up 5,000 luminaries — op-ed writers and the like — and gave them, and only them, free rein to blog stories on the Times’s own site. Imagine the traffic, he said. Imagine the buzz. “The first guy who does it is going to be the cool brand on the block.”
[Editor’s Note: Upon factchecking, Perkins says he did not meet Sulzberger and that the discussion of the Times and blogging was merely hypothetical.]
Now Huffington has just about beat any of the mainstream media to the blogosphere. And I’m about to finally find out: Will the return of Tina Brown’s diary mean that blogging has grown up, or just gotten old?
