The edited Internet
Recently I wrote about Mahalo, the human powered search engine.
Now, we're talking more seriously about how our editing muscle might help make search better. And so is Newsweek. (Thanks for finding this, Bob Yates.)
So there may be a bright future for editors after all. And to give proper credit where credit is due, that hopeful thought has been voiced before -- for instance in the otherwise gloomy "Googlezon" video, a tale of the death of newspapers first released on the Internet back in 2005 or so.
