@mark I would absolutely disagree that Wales and Stone are not innovators in journalism. How couldn't they be? As you mentioned with New West, part of its innovation was in absorbing community-generated content. Twitter alone has absorbed over 8 billion tweets (community-generated content) more than earth's population. http://bit.ly/6Hkmfk Read more on my thoughts about this here: http://bit.ly/3BZAJN As I mentioned I do like John's blog. My impression of Peer News has come from who they are looking to hire. The focus now should be on organizing community-generated content and making innovations in that field- this requires an entirely different level of experience.

I'm sorry, I really don't mean to rain on this parade. I like John Temple, I'm from Colorado and I liked his analysis of what the Rocky did with his website over the years - but what on earth is innovative about http://www.NewWest.net/? The site looks like a typical aggregation site from 1999. When I think of news innovation now, I think of technology- websites geared towards generating collective knowledge. The innovators are Jimmy Wales and Biz Stone. I want to like 'Peer News' but I just don't see how it's any different than a slightly more web geared version of the status quo. If I'm wrong, please tell me.
