Blogs as a newspaper platform

Still at the cottage, and crawling through my feed reader from time to time on one of the slowest dial-up connections since the mid-1990s, which is where I came across a post by my friend Scott Karp over at Publishing 2.0, who asks whether newspapers should become local blog networks.

Scott makes what I think is a persuasive case for why the answer to that question should be yes. Blogs, he argues, are just a content-management system with a dumb name — and newspapers (smart ones, that is) could use them to expand the nature of what they do online in interesting ways.
