AOL to Turn Netscape Site Into a Newspaper of Sorts - New York Times: "The new Netscape site, which is scheduled to be introduced in a preview version today, will also invite users to nominate and vote on articles. And it will have 30 categories, including technology, politics, music, science, religion and one called 'Do no evil,' which will deal with stories about heroes and villains.
Where Netscape goes beyond Digg is that its staff of eight full-time bloggers, called anchors, will add original material to the accounts that are of most interest to the audience. In some cases they will post commentary, but often they will gather additional facts or conduct interviews.
For example, during the internal testing of the site, a restaurant review was popular, so a blogger called the chef to get a reaction to the review.
'The goal is to keep the conversation going,' Mr. Calacanis said. He called the approach 'meta-journalism.'"
