Newspapers look to the future

I will comment on this more fully later, but I wanted to post a really interesting story from this morning's NYT:
Upheaval on Los Angeles Times Editorial Pages [NYT, 6.13.2005]
The Los Angeles Times has announced new features intended to make the editorial page more dynamic, but Michael Kinsley, who oversees those pages, has been criticized by several staff members.


Here is the LAT note on the changes that appeared in the Sunday paper...
My favorite part...
Watch next week for the introduction of "wikitorials" — an online feature that will empower you to rewrite Los Angeles Times editorials.

FCW, of course, has written several stories about wikis, which are online collaborations. I find them just fascinating. Wikipedia, an online excyclopedia that allows people to post changes to its content, is the granddaddy of wikis... and here is its definition of a wiki, if you haven't seen one before.

Meanwhile, here is the LAT editorial page Web site
And the LAT 'outside the tent' section
And LAT's opinion blog

Michael Kinsley is the founding editor of Slate.com and is a fascinating guy, so this will be just fascinating to watch.
