Has the newly revamped WSJ online adopted the Metafilter post and comment process? February 4, 2002 11:30 AM Subscribe
The newly revamped WSJ Online devotes much more individualized space for each of their columnists, including a detailed "About" biography, a "Personal Comment" space for each columnist, a "Recent Columns" section, a "Readers Response" section and weekly hosted "Online Debates". Said differently, it seems the online articles and commentaries are being treated by these journalists and their readers more like the Metafilterian post and comment process. Was the relaunch in part inspired by this place and others like it, and is this what professional news organizations now aspire to ? Maybe I'm just imagining things.
