The Guardian on OhmyNews

The Guardian’s Jack Schofield has a chat with the founder of, the Korean online newspaper. Could it work elsewhere, he asks? (My answer is at the bottom of the story.)

I’d say blogging holds important advantages for citizen reporters, among them, real-time control over publication, updates, and followups.

At the same time, the OhMyNews approach seems to impose fewer barriers to earning a spot on the front page everyone’s reading for many reporters.

An approach combining the best of the two might involve a popular site republishing what’s blogged. The next generation of my site will hopefully attempt to do this in a mostly automated fashion. But a human-edited approach may even be more successful.
