In reviewing the flow from Twitter this morning, I noted that jafurtado has referenced Scott Karp’s most recent posting to his blog, Publish2. Note this quote:
Instead of chasing links from Drudge, for example, as many newspaper sites do, they should focus on BEING a destination for finding links. Imagine a web newswire where the collective linking of newspapers’ sites could actually compete with sites like Drudge in driving traffic to newspaper content and other high quality journalism.
Karp is giving the closing keynote here tomorrow so I am wondering if he will touch on this item in his talk. It’s about adding value for publishers these days, whether news or scholarly research.
