links for 2008-08-19: Links and Editors
I remember the huge debates at HotWired about linking within the stories. That was 1996. I can't believe journos are still freaked out about this. The link is the essential element of the web. Embrace it and the web will embrace you back. Ignore it and the web will ignore you.
"As news becomes collaborative, editors will need to assemble networks from among staff and the public; that makes them community organisers." Amen. (See also: Jeff’s site where the editors are whinging.)
